We will keep this short and simple. Boxerchips provide an expandable dish-cum-basket-box inside a foil package. It is the most innovative Crisps packaging in the world. The Crisps will be protected from the level of breakage that basic bags will suffer and they can pack more into a wholesale box, thus reducing shipping costs. Brilliant.
Despite being smaller than average Crisps, whether regular or Kettle Cooked, these Crisps did have a good, firm and robust crunch. The largest and most curled Crisps took some time to munch through and while they softened up, they never melted in the mouth at any time.
There were not as many broken Crisps in this box as we have found in other Boxerchips packaging. The Crisps were however just as small. Most included at least some skin on the edges and almost all were wriggly shaped. There was a powdery seasoning so we tried a Fore-Thumb Test. The finger residue revealed itself as the honey seasoning.
A Nose Plunge Test took some time. At first we thought there was a slight Mustard and Honey aroma, but surely that was not possible. We tried again. And yes, it seemed to concur. We then emptied the contents in a bowl and took a bigger sniff. Yes, both Honey and Mustard. A good flavor combo works either in a balanced sense, or bounces from one flavour to the other. Too often, we find Crisps with a name that favour one of the two partners in the pairing. These Crisps did not succumb to that error. One Crisp would taste sweet like Honey. The next would taste sharp like English Mustard. Then, another Crisp would combine the two. There was nothing really heavy, it was a sort of pleasing-for-anyone type of flavour.
