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.
These Crisps were more thickly cut than most regular Crisps, so the crunch was weakened by the additional thickness of the potato. That is not to say they were not crunchy though. It was just a more meaty crunch than a brittle snappy crunch.
While these Crisps were mostly flat in shape, without the bends and curls that feature with the most characterful Crisps, there are mitigating circumstances - they are more thickly cut than most regular Crisps. There were some oil bumps, but many looked to have been flattened. There was the odd brownish area, but they were generally an oil infused yellow colour.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a slightly salty potato aroma. This is rare - Salted Crisps almost always just smell of potato. While we do not consider ourselves the best at judging Plain, Original, Traditional Salted Crisps - we simply crave flavour and variety - these actually tasted a little like Fish & Chip shop chips with salt on. If you are a fan of barely flavoured Crisps, and they are still the best selling variety worldwide, so there is a good chance that you are, you won't go far wrong with these.
