The bag design of the Sainsbury's Taste The Difference range is very neat and tidy. The bags are flavour colour coded, with a nice floral pattern in the background (in this Christmas aimed example, this is replaced by snowflakes on the side). The main image is a two part label. The purple taste The Difference section is spread across the whole range of foods, which leaves the top section to display the alleged ingredients. This evokes the flavour well, but overall the impression is somewhat plain, except for the surrounding colourful image, which is quite striking.
Thickly cut, hand-cooked Crisps, will always be crunchy, and these were no exception. From the first bite to the last there was a sustained crunch, with the Crisps gently cracking and giving way under pressure throughout the process.
These looked far more like the gnarly shaped Kettle Cooked Crisps most familiar with type of cooking style, than others in Sainsbury's premium range. There was also potato skin on almost all the edges. The yellow colouring was muted by a lightly browned colouring and there were lots of green flecks around.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed the sort of aroma you ordinarily identify with Chicken flavour Crisps, but mixed in with some sort of Herb smell. The flavour certainly had plenty of herby flavouring and there was a poultry type of effect in the background. This was not particularly Chicken like, so we will give them the benefit of doubt and say it was Turkey. The after-taste was strange; a bit like walking into a musty room that had been closed up for years.
