Kettle Chips certainly keep it simple. And so shall we. Colour coded bags. Colours associated with the flavour. Minimalist design. Plain but fairly perfect.
Which came first the Chicken or the Egg? Is a question we are all familiar with. We would be more interested to know which came first; the Tortilla Chip or the Dip? No snack is more suited to dipping than the thickly sliced, fried Tortilla Chip. And these were no different. The crispy, snappy crunch was maintained throughout the full eating process, whether accompanied by lashings of dip or not.
Triangular shapes with rounded edges and crumbly surfaces. What more could you ask for in the way of Tortilla character? The surfaces of all the Chips were coated with a thick, pale orange, cheesy looking powder and there were black coloured spots here and these on the dark yellow surfaces.
While Potato Chips and Crisps have an aroma as akin to the flavour as the potato in most cases, Tortilla Chips have an aroma of their own. These were no different. There was little hint of the flavour, it was just obvious that there was something fried in there. There was a tiny spiciness to a cheesy flavour that was helped along by a creaminess that made the Chips moreish.
