The first thing to address is the controversy regarding packaging in relation to content. There is no doubt that there are fewer Crisps in the average Slabs bag than others, but there is a very good reason for that: They are thicker and heavier than almost all other Crisps. To some extent, we would agree on the food packaging debate, but not with Crisps. They need and deserve the protection! No-one would be happy if a bag was full of mushed Crisps. This all leads on to the most notable feature of this packaging. The see-through traditional look is perfect for displaying the unique nature of these Crisps, but unfortunately this also leads the exhibition of limited content - We would suggest a smaller window. There is also a further unique offering. The single serving bags have the seals at the side, which is worth a star on its own. And to the more graphic design led aspects - the central description box does it's job very well, with a bold and dominant flavour colour coding that wraps from the top half around the back to the base of the bag. One small critique would be that the flavour should be in the same colour coding rather than a black box.
As these Crisps were so thickly sliced, they did not Crunch like regular Crisps. Instead, there was an almost biscuit like Crunch.
These Crisps were by far and away the thickest Crisps we have found on the British market. There were very few Crisps in the single serving bag, but that was because they were so large. Huge,in fact. Including the biggest Crisps we have ever come across: pictured below. There were few oil boils, but there was a meaty yellowish brown textured and disrupted surface, thick with seasoning.
The thicker the Crisps, the more there is to infuse and full with seasoning. These Crisps therefore featured a very strong flavour. The balance worked very well, but as we neared the end of the bag, there was an overwhelming Onion taste. Very impressive stuff.
