Cape Cod's superb packaging design plus its local and healthy image evoking lighthouse make it one of the few brands that can get away with such a bag dominating logo. We do have a rare criticism of this particular bag though - why burgundy for the color? A grey or black color would possibly suit the flavor a little better. When color coding flavors it is always preferable to include a flavor representative color.
Eating a bag of Cape Cod Kettle Cooked is a crunchy experience and these were as crunchy as any. The Chip Snap Test saw a good sized Chip break in half with little flecks flying around.
With some skin on the edges of the Chips to add to the 'All Natural' feel of the flavor, they also had relatively small bubbles that suggests they may not have been drenched in oil and boiled for as long as some. There were clear flecks of seasoning and the Bag Plunge Test revealed slightly mucky fingers.
A peppery smell was the aroma that greeted us when the bag was first opened. This died down a bit as the bag was consumed. There was a warm, slightly creamy background flavor, but the main hit was a bounce from salt to pepper and back again, with pepper being slightly dominant. A very good version of the flavor.
