This is one of our favorite Cape Cod designs, among a range of brilliant designs. The pale blue conjures up images of a gentle, calm and inviting sea. Best of all the Chips graphic (which has presumably been photo-enhanced), makes you think someone has sat with a pin ensuring every little hole has been dug out individually to make sure all the filled holes are empty. Good stuff.
Not quite the optimum crunch, as they veered more towards munchy Regular Chips than Brittle and snappy Kettle Cooked Chips. They were however crisp and crackly, which was rewarding enough.
These were irregularly shaped Chips, many of which appeared to be somewhat smaller than we expected. There was some skin on edges and lots of small oil blisters. The overriding factor in the look and feel though was a rather pale oil infused look – almost anaemic Chips.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a rather definite aroma – it was like a generic Vinegar, maybe even Malt, but as you would smell if poured on a wooden table rather than an infusion of foodstuff. As for the taste, well, this one is quite difficult for us. We prefer to avoid personal opinion because it is so subjective, instead preferring to report what tastes are present. However, these were simply not very nice. There was sweetness and a sort of Vinegary flavour. There was also a salty after-taste, but it really did not work for us as a combo.
