Real are another British brand that have gone for a modern and well presented case for inclusion in shopping baskets. If Walkers did not have a virtual monopoly with Britain's main supermarket chains, the likes of Real would be far more prevalent. The branding is large and readily identifiable a the top. The flavour is similarly large and striking. Each bag is flavour colour coded and they all include a mascot style face to represent each flavour.
These thickly cut Crisps had early firm and rigid bites and unlike many Crisps of this nature, there were no major splinters and hardened munches. Instead, they deteriorated a little more quickly than expected, but at still a nice even pace
There were lots of shapely Crisps in this bag. Bends and curls, but nothing dramatic because they were also fairly thickly sliced. There were oil boils and a good helping of seasoning powder
A Nose Plunge test revealed a burst of beefy aroma. The smell even lingered in the room after all the Crisps were eaten. At first there was a bit of a ‘wow’ moment. These were really beefy. Perhaps the beefiest and most genuine flavour we have tried in the UK. However, the aftertaste featured a very salty flavour. This did dampen the excitement a little because they were pretty much as near as good as you can get
