Salty Dog Crisps
Hello from Salty Towers, home of the tastiest crisps you could shake a tail at. We make sure all our potatoes are of the highest pedigree. They are hand-cooked in sunflower oil for extra bite, and seasoned with deliciously feisty flavours.
We're always digging around for new ideas, and have introduced some particularly noshable nuts and gourmet popcorn into the Salty Towers litter.
It was in 2002 when Dave Willis, fed up with delivering other people’s crisps, thought “we could make better crisps than those currently sitting in the back of my van” Judy, his wife, fully agreed and soon afterwards Salty Dog crisps were born.
Salty Dog Brands also include Darling Spuds Crisps. You can read reviews by clicking on their logo below.
Salty Dog Strong Cheddar & Onion Crisps
I had to double-check the bag after a Nose Plunge Test. At first, I thought the smell was a strong spring onion, but the bag confirmed it was just onion. The taste still reminded me of spring onion, but that may have just been lodged in as false imagery by then. The combination of flavours featured a rounded and strong cheese with an even stronger, but not overwhelming onion. If eaten with a sandwich these would dominate your flavour enjoyment. Which pretty much makes them exactly what they should be - A commanding example of their flavour.
Salty Dog Jalapeno Crisps
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a slender but familiar jalapeno pepper aroma. The taste was a little less like jalapeno and more like Tabasco. They were particularly greasy. As with the best jalapeno crisps though, they featured a late after-burn, which is always a shock even if you know it's going to happen.
Salty Dog Sea Salt Crisps
As far as plain crisps go, they were an ideal accompaniment for a flavourful sandwich. There was salt, but not too much. The warm potato background combined perfectly well to execute the flavour with aplomb. They were, however, a little overly oily for my liking.
Salty Dog Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar Crisps
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a mild vinegar aroma, but as it declares on the bag that they, “Bite Back,” I expected the flavour to be anything but mild. The first thing I noticed was that the vinegar was undoubtedly of a recognisable malt variety. The balance, however, was not present - There was a slight undercurrent of salt, but it did not balance up the flavour of the overwhelming vinegar.
Salty Dog Ham & Wholegrain Mustard
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a familiar aroma, but at first, I could not put my finger on it. The conclusion was that it was a very mild smoky bacon redolence. The taste was of a particularly sweet combo of ham and mustard. The mustard was not nearly hot enough and the ham was just that little bit too sweet.
