The Risi Papas Caseras range features a somewhat out of place tiny logo in the corner. But mostly, in fact it is shouted so loudly on the front that you are left in no doubt: THESE ARE KETTLE CHIPS and if you don't get that first time, we will shout it again in a second language! It is not really necessary. The flavors are color coded and there is an image of whichever scary pepper is included within the flavor. The whole effect is a little mundane, but the bag design is bright, colorful and modern.
These Chips were very crunchy. The Kettle Cooking style allied with the thickness of the Chip, made for a lengthy and sustained crunch, without much of a decrease in solidity throughout the munching process.
These were rather thickly cut Kettle Chips. There were not that many overly wriggly Chips because the thickness kept the pain down to gentle curls and bends. The hot oil did force some screaming bubbles, but they were also minimal. There was not much visible coloring except for the seasoning which was a bright orange color.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a peppery aroma. It was't specific, but it was spicy Pepper. The taste was of mild potato mixed with a salty Habanero Pepper. This could be considered controversial, but we believe that if you provide a full range of Pepper Chips, the hottest (which would be Habanero), should border on the unbuyable. What they have instead done is provided a very tasty Chip that sees an increase in heat as you eat more, but surely a Chip of this nature should be too hot for some.
