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 Ridged Crisp effect. As the whole thing is done in two colours it looks modern but it also means there are no stand-out features.
These thickly cut Chips featured a similarly thick and meaty Crunch.As they needed to be fatter to sustain their Ripples, they munched like crackers rather than Crisps.
Heavily Ridged Crisps with additional undulations within the Ridges. There was some darkish seasoning that made the Crisps a deep yellow colour with a hint of brown.
Prawn Cocktail Crisps are unique in the wonderful World of Chips and Crisps, in that they do not taste like Prawn Cocktail, which has either a Marie Rose sauce in the UK or Shrimp Cocktail Sauce in the US. The former is predominantly Mayonnaise and the latter is predominantly Ketchup. Prawn Cocktail flavour Crisps taste like Prawn Cocktail Crisps, which is a rather sweet and peppery flavour with a layer of Ketchup. There is certainly nothing Prawn or Shrimp like in the flavour, ever. So, it to Mackie's version of this flavour - Well, it was actually quite pleasant. Nothing serious and nothing particularly heavy - it was after all battling with a lot of thick potato, but there was a layer of inoffensive Ketchup sweetness.
