Kettle are masters of minimalism. Their standard Crisps have plain but loud colours. This departure to the Baked low fat arena sees a similar approach, with a unique, if a little uninspiring ceramic dish with a smattering of content ingredients within. There is still a broad background colour, although it hints more towards pastel colours.
As with all Kettle Cooked Crisps, these were crunchier than Regular Crisps. The crisp, snappy crack did however precede a faster than usual degradation to mush.
These Crisps had a rather impressively weird colour about them. There was the regular yellowish background colour, but the most noticeable aspect of them was the pink. Yes, these were pink Crisps. They were also less bendy and curly than most Kettle Cooked Crisps. This was compounded by fewer oil blisters than many.
A Nose Plunge Test unveiled an interesting but not particularly identifiable aroma. This was mirrored somewhat by the flavour. Cheshire Cheese does not have a stand-out flavour of its own so it was not surprising that there was no outstanding Cheese flavour. Neither was there any evident Cranberry. There was however a rather rewarding backdrop of Red Wine flavouring, which is fairly original in the wonderful world of Chips and Crisps. It did leave us wondering why Kettle didn’t just call them Red Win flavour Crisps, which would immediately attract its own audience and the associated publicity and potential retailers.
