The company branding sits comfortably at the top of the packet. The blue color not only represents the contents well, but is striking and even stands out among Brother Kane's other varieties. The small image doesn't really fit in and the descriptive writing should not really be a serif font and could be much smaller and make a bigger impact. The 'Fresh From Our Family Farm' slogan is good as is the background image of what is presumably, the family farm.
The Chips were a little thin to maintain a Ripple effect without a number of Chips breaking. This left us going for the Handful Test - a crammed mouth and the crisp crunch takes effect. It was a snappy crack rather than a firm crunch.
There were lots of smaller Chips and a higher than we would like, number of broken or cracked Chips. The Ridges were wide and deep and there was a liberal and uneven spread of seasoning. They were not however so greasy that fingers became covered after a bag plunge.
The ingredients on the reverse of the packet read like an encyclopedia of scary scientific words, and as not one of them mentions the words 'Buffalo Wing' or 'Bleu Cheese' we imagine a sorcerer sitting with a pot, conjuring a magical flavor. Unfortunately this was not the case. The Buffalo Wing aspect of the combo was missed and the cheesy taste, and there was a creamy cheese taste, was not nearly as tart as a good Blue Cheese should be.
