The Canyon Cut packaging is a variation on the theme of their standard Kettle Cooked Chips bags. The cartoon style font that explains the contents are 'Canyon Cut' in a bold burgundy strip across the middle of the bag, which stands out very well, although the font is a little childish for our liking.The Chips in the bowl look fresh and inviting.
They seem slightly thicker than Boulder Canyon's standard Kettle Cooked Chips. The Ridges are firm enough to make the crunch a hollow echo within the mouth. Very good. And with few oily constituents in the bag, made for a firm and crispy crunch.
The Ridged 'Canyon Cut' Chips are a little firmer to the feel, without the large bubbles seen on their regular Chips. The ripples are wide enough to get away from the phrase 'Wavy', and although they are not quite canyon width, it is a very good marketing tool. There are small flecks of parsley on all the Chips. Also, less greasy than the main range.
While the aroma was one of potato with a slight tinge of onion, the taste was more rewarding. While there is no such thing as a healthy Chip, especially a Kettle Cooked Chip, these are as good as they get in this department. You can taste the creamy, cheesy onion and there is not significant oil to corrupt the potato flavour.
