All the bags are flavour colour coded. They have a distinctly Gaelic stylised writing expressing the name and underneath the flavour is written in large italics. The backdrop to this writing is a brown bag effect. As the whole thing is done in two colours it looks modern but it also means there are no stand-out features.
When a Crisp is as thick as these were they are unlikely to crack and snap up like a regular Crisp can. What they did do was mulch like a biscuit before coating teeth with a tasty, gooey mush.
Thickly cut, dense Crisps with firm edges. All in the bag were whole without straggling chips and pieces. The surfaces were orangy yellow in colour with lots of powder on surfaces, including the odd seasoning fleck.
There was a slight Cheesy aroma when the bag was opened. In a tough market, as the Cheese and Onion comparisons certainly propose, these enjoyed a rather muted flavouring. A nice balance between Cheese and a tinge of Onion, with a warm and fuzzy Potato backdrop.
