There are many things to like about there Covered Bridge bag design and just one to dislike There are also difficulties for any Canadian manufacturer that need to be overcome, which will always impact design. So, the good: The small logo is appropriately sized and stands out. The wavy flavor color coded bags are also great. Although it should be pointed out that the vast majority are shades of green or blue for some odd reason. Covered bridge handle the issue of two languages very well - the main image includes English, but in larger text is the French wording. This difficulty is handled very well. The bad: Really, what is it with these Chips companies are cartoon imagery! And poor cartoon imagery in this case. It is one thing having an uninspiring photo of Chips, but providing childish cartoons is simply the other side of the same coin. However, one major positive outweighs them all. The main purpose of food manufacturer packaging is to make their product stand out. These bags achieve this very well.
There was a brisk and crisp, almost brittle Crunch to these Chips. They mulched calmly, but never turned to mush as is of then the feature of Regular Chips.
There were some great bends and curls. A plentiful supply of oil bubbles, both closed and burst. There was some skin on edges. But the stand out feature was their bright orange color.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a pleasant and warming Barbecue aroma. The flavor description said it was "Smokin", which it was, if a little lightly. It also claimed it was "Sweet", which again it was, and particularly subtlely. These two factors combined well with what was a rather tame and rather muted, if still quite pleasant Barbecue flavoring.
