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.
Most batch Cooked Crisps have a firm and rigid crunch and these were no different. They tasted a little greasy, but that did not detract from the crispy munch.
These Crisps looked really oily. Each Crisp seemed to have potato skin on its edges, which was a little more encouraging, but the texture was dominated by the glossy look. Strangely, a Fore-Thumb Test revealed next to no oily residue and virtually no seasoning on fingers. There were curled and odd shaped Crisps and most were small.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a slightly similar aroma to the Kettle Brand Sweet Chilli flavour, which was strange. With that in mind a first taste had us thinking much the same. Fortunately, that was dispelled by a few more Crisps. However, that doesn't mean to say we found any sort of Chicken flavour. It was a little more exotic than that. Okay, we will admit, it was somewhat mystifying to us - so we hunted around for similar flavourings in our minds. The best we could come up with was some of the Oriental flavouring that Crisps companies make available. Whatever they tasted like, it certainly wasn't anything remotely like Sunday Best Roast Chicken!
