Walkers bag designers are not too well regarded at Chips and Crisps. Their work invariably lacks character or originality. These are no different. This new range of Deli influenced Crisps features a plain pale yellow bag with flavour colour coded side panels. The writing includes no less than five different fonts in what is a fairly bleak looking bag. There is also a small photo and graphic to exhibit the alleged contents. Having said all that, the Crisps come packaged in a brilliantly constructed bag – it is squared off with proper side panels, which mean that when opened the bag stays wide like a bowl. It can even stand up independently. That alone is worth two extra stars.
These were as near to the optimum Crunch that any Crisps should feature. They did not crash into mulch like many Regular Crisps. Neither did they splinter and break up into shards of hardened potato like many Handcooked Crisps. The balance featured a certain pressure requirement before they broke down in a gradual fashion until the mush stage appeared towards a nicely paced Crisp's demise.
There was a nice thickness to these Crisps. There was skin on edges and a plentiful supply of oil blisters to keep our interest. They were a little more like regular Crisps than Handcooked Crisps when it came to the gentle curls and bends. There was a mid-yellow tone infused with a slightly orange colouring.
A Nose Plunge Test featured a Cheesy, but warm potato aroma. The flavour says it was Cornish Cheddar specifically. We will not pretend we can tell the difference between regional Cheddar Cheeses, but we would guess ‘Generic Cheddar’ would not have read quite as well on the packet. As it was, the flavour was certainly Cheese-like, but there was just as much of a buttery flavour. It was however enjoyable if you like your Cheese on its own.
