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.
It took no less than an excellent 11 seconds to chomp through one of these Crisps. And at no time did it turn to mushy potato. The crunch was also loud and firm.
These were fairly standard looking Ridged Crisps. The 'Furrows' were mechanically produced, evenly spaced, and deep enough to contain some excess seasoning. The edges of many of the Crisps had a coating of potato skin. There were a few oil bubbles which suggested they may have been thinner than some Rippled Crisps. The Crisps were a fairly light yellow colour.
We had to check the packet to see what sort of Vinegar was used in this flavouring. We presumed there would be Malt Vinegar powder included, and there was, but the odd taste we encountered was confirmed to be Cider Vinegar, which made a very welcome change to what is a fairly standard flavour. It was a really pleasant taste, but we are sticklers for correct labelling at Chips & Crisps, and this bag said Sea Salt & Vinegar - we could not taste any Salt.
