There is a small logo in the corner of the bag that includes a little farm, a field and a shining sun. This should have been the all encompassing background bag image. Instead, it is just a flavour colour coded bag with a sliced potato and some Chips at the bottom, along with a giant Tsakiris logo emblazoned diagonally across the bag. The effect is bright and lively, but it represents no heritage. It could even feature a black and white image of an old Tsakiris delivery tricycle – there is so much that could be done to improve the design of this bag and represent the company better.
As these were standard, thinly cut Chips, it would be fair to say that a supreme crunch should not be expected. With that in mind, the crisp, snappy munch, which quickly turned pulpy was modest yet rewarding. However, this, by its very nature, cannot lead to a premium crunch.
These were rewardingly simple looking Chips. They were pale yellow in colour. They were thinly cut. There were some gentle bends and curls. There was also a plentiful supply of oil boils. Most importantly, given the flavour, there were also some little seasoning flecks visible.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed little. There was an oily potato aroma. The taste was like warm slippers in front of an open fire – a crisp and moreish potato. There was also a herby flavouring which would be the Oregano element of the flavour. Overall, a fairly standard and unspectacular flavour that just about did what it said on the packet.
