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 provided a non-stop crunch until swallowing experience. This was positive, as was the relatively thin nature of the Crisps, which saw off jagged edges and glass like shatter pieces.
These Crisps were mostly pale yellow in colour, although there were a couple of particularly brown Crisps. There was plenty of skin on the edges of what were very curly and wriggly Hand Cooked Crisps. There was also a lot of Black Pepper spots on all the Crisps.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed air. There was no smell. After emptying the bag into a bowl, there was lots of greasy areas with Black Pepper stuck to them within the empty bag. In theory, this is a pretty easy flavour to get right. The combination should provide an equal measure of potato, Salt and Pepper. Some fail miserably, but these did not. They hit the mark in all three departments.
