Pipers Crisp Co appear to be missing an apostrophe, otherwise there wouldn't be a Piper on the top of the bag! Grammar policing aside, the flavour colour coded bags are highly visible on shelves. The London Underground style font is timeless. We would prefer the flavour name was made more of, but overall it is a very effective and traditionally modern (if there was such a thing), look.
If using some sort of audible judgement, these Crisps were somewhat dampened. The thickness of the Crisps probably affected the crispiness, which made it difficult to judge fairly. Although at least the crunch was maintained throughout the eating process - they didn't turn all mushy like some Crisps do.
These Crisps were a little flat and lacking in character, but to be fair, they were more thickly cut than a lot of Crisps. The colouring was a light yellow, with a little white powdery seasoning and a few oil infused and brownish areas.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a slight Vinegar aroma. It was not the traditional Malt Vinegar that remains more recognisable, so that would presumably account for the Cider Vinegar claim on the front of the bag. It was a somewhat odd, but delicately flavoured Crisp, that certainly featured a balance between, Salt, Potato and whatever the Vinegar was. It was all rather mild and inoffensive.
