It is hard to see what M&S were aiming for with the torn piece of paper graphic. Maybe this was just the notes for a proper design. We do not like to be unnecessarily critical, but the Simply branding is Simply uninspiring, old fashioned and frankly, poor.
These Crisps mulched up at about the rate a regular Crisps should do. Three or four meaty bites were followed by a mushy degradation as each additional munch took place.
These were thinly cut Crisps that had little character. There was a tiny amount of skin on some edges. They were mostly flat, without noticeable oil bubbles. There were a lot of broken Crisps. The colour was a sort of pale yellow. There was no seasoning visible.
A Nose Plunge Test featured a strange aroma. It smelled as much of ham or some other mildly aromatic meat, as it did of Cheese. The taste was an improvement. There was a very good balance between a mild Cheddar and a mild Onion. It was also sustained throughout the eating process.
