The bag design of the Sainsbury's Taste The Difference range is very neat and tidy. The bags are flavour colour coded, with a nice floral pattern in the background. The main image is a two part label. The purple taste The Difference section is spread across the whole range of foods, which leaves the top section to display the alleged ingredients. This evokes the flavour well, but overall the impression is somewhat plain, except for the surrounding colourful image, which is quite striking.
There was something similar to eating dried fruit about these Crisps. The Sweet Potato Crisps, crunched nicely first off, but they quickly turned soft. Not in a familiar mushy Potato fashion like ordinary Potato Crisps might, but in a softening food stuff fashion, as if the moisture was returning to the Crisp throughout the chomp process.
Most of these thickly cut, irregularly shaped Crisps, were tiny in comparison to most Crisps. They were also very orange in colour and had substantial quantities of powder covering all of the Crisps.
There was no hint of the flavour within when a Nose Plunge Test was carried out. Instead it was purely of Sweet Potato. Consumers are often misguided by 'alternative' Crisps. No-one should be fooled into thinking these Sweet Potato Crisps are any healthier than their Potato counterparts. The nutrition label suggests the details and numbers are much the same except for sugar, which is more than five times the amount in this pack as in most of the other Taste The Difference Potato Crisps range. The flavour included a very very sweet Chilli, and there was a hint of Lime. There was even a small after-kick of heat, but the sustained flavouring was undoubtedly a dominant Sweet Potato.
