Kettle Chips certainly keep it simple. And so shall we. Colour coded bags. Colours associated with the flavour. Minimalist design. Plain but fairly perfect.
Eating through a handful of these Crisps took a bit of effort. There was none of this smashy pulp stuff that you find with regular Crisps, but instead a firm, crispy mulchy crack, as you would expect if wading through crisp and hardened Autumnal forests
Aside from a personal preference for the crazy shapes and irregularity that you often find with Kettle Cooked Crisps, these were as good looking a Crisp as you are likely to fins. There was a clearly brownish tinge to the helpfully evident seasoning that was visible. The backdrop to this was a heavily oil blistered firm and rigid looking Crisp
A Nose Plunge Test was not required for these Crisps. As soon as the bag was opened an aroma burst out. It was indeed a sweet tingly smell of Maple Syrup, as promised on the bag description. It is a North American flavour that the manufacturer introduced to provide their Crisps eating public with a new experience, for which they should be applauded. For that audience however, the sweet cloying flavouring is not something that is likely to catch on too quickly. The essence was clearly of Maple Syrup though, which is what this section of the review is all about. There was even a gentle backdrop of bacon to the flavouring.
