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.
These Crisps were more like thick wafers or biscuits in size and shape, but that did not detract from an impressive Crunch. A Crunch you can only find with Potato Crisps. Oddly, they broke down mushily rather than mulchily, but that breakage was sustained over a good period.
Among the thickest Crisps we have seen and almost certainly the thickest cut for the British market. There was a deep yellowish brown crusty surface and no room for oil blisters at all. They were also notably large in size.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a mild Malt Vinegar aroma. This was echoed in the flavour but in extreme - they were particularly Vinegary in flavour. There did not appear to be a balance of Salt, but towards the end of each Crisp's short life there was a residual Salty flavouring.
