Herr's may have felt they needed to differentiate this bag from the almost identical 'All Natural' Chip in their Kettle Cooked range. They have therefore gone with a completely different design and made it look as though it was healthy. It is only marginally better for fat content and has the same sodium content, but a customer won't know this because this has the word 'Natural' written on it! If there is still any doubt, the tiny green leaves will confirm they are healthy! The washed out white background used on their other Kettle Chips looks good, but what the orange color has to do with anything it anyone's guess.
This had a kind of crispy crunch to it. Although Kettle Cooked, they seemed a little thinner than many of the Kettle Chips on the market. A small handful was like putting a brass band in the mouth - a cacophony of sound. However, it was more like eating regular Chips than Kettle Cooked Chips.
This is what we wrote for our All Natural Flavor Review: An average looking and feeling Kettle Cooked Chip. The thickness was that of a Kettle Chip, if a little thinner than the premium gourmet varieties. The oil bubbles created a rugged surface, rather than popping up on every Chip - although some of the larger ones had burst. There was skin on some Chip edges. There was more oil than seasoning visible. Admittedly, these Chips were not tested at the same time, but within a week, so we don't believe our memories were playing tricks. It seemed like the same Chip texture to us.
This is what we wrote for our All Natural Flavor Review: If a chef wanted a trade pack of Chips that would not let him down in his quest for a nice looking Chip that did not look cheap, that could accompany one of his masterpiece sandwiches, he could do a lot worse than these. They are plain, regular, won't let you down, potato flavored Chips. If the customer was looking for something they reminded him or her of, they would say, 'Sandwich. I can't remember the Chips.' The write up stands for this virtually identical tasting Chip. It says it has marginally less saturated fat, but we didn't notice in the flavor department.
