Each flavor variety has its own color coded bag, which allows the potential customer to identify which are their favorites. The logo is discrete but visible. The other four important aspects are not quite as good. The color washed photo looks a bit confusing and doesn't really work on any of the flavor designs. The word 'Gourmet' should be at least as large (if Rachel really means it), as the 'Kettle Chips' on the main banner. The name of the flavor is slapped in a banner at the foot of the bag almost as an after-thought, when it is the most important part of this marketing production.
These Kettle Chips had a really solid crunch to them. The firm and hard texture allowed for a crisp, but rigid shatter rather than the smash you can often find with Regular Chips.
As with most Kettle Cooked Chips these were more thickly sliced than regular Chips. They were mostly large in size and there were very few broken Chips in the bag. There was not much seasoning visible, and what there was did not combine with the oil to provide significant finger residue.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a slight Onion smell, but it was not significant to warm us to whatever was inside the bag. Although relatively low in sugar content compared to many Kettle Cooked Chips with the word 'Sweet' in the flavor title, the taste was of burning onions, without any smokiness. If that contradiction makes any sense it was like sweet onions being cooked - as they melted - this was the taste they produced. So, if you are in the mood for something sweet and savory, these could do the job.
