Kettle's Discoveries Range is all about weird and wonderful flavours, many of them innovative. It is therefore not surprising that they have gone for a twist on their usual packaging. Each 'Discovery' has a different backdrop, such as a sandwich bag or a chopping board. The logo is bold and dominant and the flavour combo appears in relatively small writing at the foot of the bag. Unfortunately, Kettle have gone for the least creative option of displaying their flavour content - the good old ingredients graphic.
There was a fair amount of hardened oil around with these Crisps, so they perhaps understandably munched down very well. There was a consistent if not quite sustained process between the initial bites and the mulchy end.
There were the usual bends and gnarly curls as are always found in a bag of Kettle Chips. They were mostly pale yellow in colour, but with disrupted surfaces of oil blisters and seasoning There was also some seasoning on edges.
If the people of Yorkshire can excuse me for a minute, I would say that Wensleydale is a rather unadventurous Cheese. It's certainly not Stilton or Strong Extra Mature Cheddar, anyway. It did however balance out what was a clearly evident chutney flavour that certainly included Apple. We were actually relieved to have a fruity flavoured Crisp that wasn't made of fruit! There also appeared to be a touch of Cove, which was confirmed when we looked at the ingredients list. A successful new flavour for Kettle.
