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.
These Crisps were hardened by oil. The rigidity transferred directly to the crunch, which was crisp and even, with a touch of hardness, that was maintained until the last brittle munch.
These Hand Cooked Crisps were rather muted in appearance. The colouring was yellow infused with a light brown dusting. There were few oil boils and they were not as irregularly shaped as one might expect.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a somewhat surprising lack of smell. The flavour was most certainly Beef based, but the Horseradish was a little confusing. It said that the ingredients included Horseradish flavouring, but it was nearer to Wasabi than Horseradish. Now, I know they are relatives in the hot burn family, but the variance in taste seemed significant. We did not however allow that to overwhelm us with negative feelings towards what was a very nice Crisp.
