Burts did have plain flavour colour coded bags just like market leaders, Kettle Brand. The update is among the best Crisp bags designs we have seen. Each flavour has a different coloured apron and each cook, standing with hands on hips, has a matching shirt. The brand name is nicely sized, and although we would prefer the all important flavour was given more prominence, this design is as good as any.
As Handcooked Crisps go, these were a little more thinly cut than some.Not so you would notice, but while doing a Crunch Test, we spotted a slightly more swift munch. The degradation was more evenly paced, but there was no mushy pulp stage, so it worked smoothly and crunchily.
These Crisps managed to have the full array of coloured seasoning (via the Beef flavouring), Oil Blisters (from the deep frying) and thickness, from the Hand Cooking process. There were meaty oil blisters and lots of bends and shapes.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a very mild Beef Stock aroma, which is as it should be. The lacked a bit of punch - we would have preferred it was stringer, but there was an unmistakable Beefy flavouring.
