Half of a Tyrrell's pack is taken up by flavour colour coding, which is exactly as it should be with modern bag designs. There is also a uniform design across the range, which ticks another box. Each pack features a mildly amusing black and white photograph that hints towards the flavour. This not only works well, but it gives the company a light hearted appeal.
There was a nicely paced munch to these Crisps. They were not hard and brittle like many Hand Cooked Crisps, but there was a reasonable mulch from start to mush
These were bendy and curly, just as Hand Cooked Crisps should be. There was a certain darkness to them, not brown but a darkened yellow. There were a reasonable amount of oil boils, and some good dark edges.
A Nose Plunge Test failed to give much away. The taste was fortunately a little more rewarding. The Mustard aspect balanced well with a porky Sausage taste, which was perhaps somewhat surprising. In the Potato Chips and Crisps world Sausage is a little more difficult to master than Mustard. Wasabi and Horseradish are staples for Crisps manufacturers but blending Sausage with Mustard and not allowing one to dominate is a great credit to Tyrrell’s.
