Shearer's have undergone yet another re-packaging process. They have re-positioned a number of flavors under a 'Savory' banner. This design is just as striking as the broad black sided bags that are now under the Kettle Cooked section. Each of these flavors have a dark green top and bottom with a color coded flavor sitting broadly between. The name and flavor are given due prominence, there is a good graphic image of a salt shaker, and the Chips are on display. Nothing to fault, everything to praise.
To us it was much the same Chip, so this is much the same write up as the Original flavor version. These standard Chips had a light crispy crunch. A mouthful quickly turned to mushy potato, but not too quickly - There was some hearty crunching to be done first.
These were thinly cut, light in color Potato Chips. There was a gentle undulation of oil bubbles, but not many. Those that were about were generally large or broken. The Chips had little browning and few blemishes. They looked healthy and crisp.
No less than a third of Shearer's Chips are of the plain, unflavored genre. The difference between these and the Original version of the same Chip is negligible. These Chips were light on flavor. The lower level of seasoning did not particularly help bring out what was a pleasant potato flavor. We would say they would be best enjoyed if accompanied by an all singing and dancing sandwich.
