Using a photo is always a risky design option. This pictures apples, which are of course included in cider. A bowl of Crisps is poking out of the side. It does the job of persuading consumers of the delights of Kent, but does nothing to build a brand or sell Crisps. It could just as easily be for any foodstuff.
These Crisps were particularly hard and brittle. The thickness created some sharp edges as a firm chomp was require to get through. The crunchiness was maintained throughout the eating process. At no time did the Crisp turn mushy.
These were thick and hard Crisps infused with stiff oil. This made the Crisps very curly and irregular in shape. While mostly whole, they seemed to be quite small in size. There was a lot of skin on edges and a certain amount of powdery seasoning here and there.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed very little in the way of aroma. What there was appeared to veer slightly towards Vinegar. The bag design is a little misleading because although there are Kentish apples on the design, the Cider aspect of the Vinegar flavouring was completely absent. The Salt was completely overwhelmed by the Vinegar, but it was a more generic Vinegar than Cider. It was warmer and friendlier than a strong tart malt Vinegar, but it was nevertheless quite still strong and dominant.
