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.
Slightly more thinly cut than most Mackie’s Crisps, but still thicker than your average Regular Crisp. The Crunch was of a traditional nature, with a firm munch and a crashing and splintering, and a steady progress to the mush and swallow stage
Unlike many of Mackie’s other varieties, these were not flat and thick, but instead there were gentle curls and bends in what were still thickly cut Crisps, but they looked more traditional with a smattering of Potato colouring and seasoning on surfaces that included a few oil blisters. They did leave lots of greasy seasoning residue on fingers
