Snyder of Berlin's Kettle Cooked range feature a flavor color coded background to what is a fairly mundane bunch of graphics and text. Although what light brown and green have to do with Reduced Fat Chips is anyone's guess. The cooking style dominates rather than the flavor, but the giant letters are uncalled for. The rest of the text disappears towards the bottom. Although now part of one of the largest corporations of this type in the US, little has been done about employing professional graphic designers to sort out the packaging.
These had a really very good crispy crunch. If regular Chips have a snappy crisp crunch and Kettle Chips have a meaty, thick and firm crunch, these split both to provide a really quite rewarding Chips smashing experience.
These Chips were more thin than many Kettle Cooked Chips, but this only enhanced the mad shapes, bends and curves that really give Kettle Chips their character. The Chips had a softly oil bubbled surface, creating a sort of rocky landscape texture. They were fairly light in color, with some browning and not much in the way of seasoning.
The first thing we spotted on the nutrition label was that although these Chips have 40% less fat than regular Chips, they have the same amount of saturated fat; 1g, as there regular Chips. So, no-one should be fooled into thinking these amount to healthy eating. There was a warm potato flavoring, tinged with a little salt. To us, they were a little taste and flavor free, but for those looking for a plain unexciting flavor, to go with a sandwich, they could do a lot worse than pick these.
