There appears to be a theme among ‘lighter Potato Chips and Crisps bag designs. The use of white and pastel colours is always the way the graphic artists go. In this case, the Tayto logo is the only particularly bright imagery – which can only be a good thing for the company. There are the positive ticks against healthy aspects and even a clever little balloon floating up in its lightness, with 98 calories as the message. The branding is an equally light and crispy moniker, and it even looks like it has been daubed lightly with a paint brush. Apart from that, and the bland image of the contents, it is a fairly basic bag design.
This is a repeat of what we wrote for another flavour in this range. The crunch was identical. Extruded Potato Snacks often feature a non-traditional crunch, as you might expect. These fairly thickly cut snacks held a good initial crisp crunch or two, but this soon dampened down before the much stage.
Shell like potato snacks. They are deeply concaved circles in a bright yellow colour, with little green dots. There were no oil boils, but lots of chemical powdering.
There were a lot of Potato Snacks in the bag, but the weight was only 21 grams. This is a relatively small weight for a bag of Potato Chips or Crisps. This may directly contribute to the calorie content – clever. Also intriguingly, are the relatively high numbers on the left: As high as regular Chips and Crisps. A Nose Plunge Test revealed a sort of plasticky aroma – there was no food smells. The taste was a little more rewarding, but the Onion flavour, and there was an Onion aroma, was very small.
