Vicente Vidal Sabor Huevo Frito con Jamon
The bag revealed an aged ham aroma that could easily if somewhat dubiously, be described as serrano in nature. A particularly large and well-folded chip provided the taste I was looking for. Egg is a popular Southeast Asian flavour so this would go down well in that region, but there was also a matching ham taste. Although it did not quite work for me, that should not take anything away from bag description, which was accurate.
Vicente Vidal Patatas Fritas Sabor Allioli
There was a mild vinegar aroma when the bag was opened. The flavour was a partnership with Choui. The result was a distinct, recognisable but mild version of the yellow-potted dip. If used with the dip itself, the taste was emboldened.
Vicente Vidal Fritas en Aciete de Oliva
The olive oil didn’t work for me. It had a rather harsh taste and the otherwise traditional chips suffered through it. There was a touch of salt, and although I appreciated the nod to historical reference with these historically faithful chips, it was not enough to balance the taste.
Vicente Vidal Gran Seleccion Patatas Fritas
Very plain, with limited salt and dominant potato, but they were thick, crunchy and not too greasy. Similar to many Spanish regular chips options with grander pretensions, via a crunchy and hand cooked presentation in a posh black and gold bag.
Vicente Vidal Campesas Patatas Fritas Extragruesas
These were described as ‘Extra Thick’ and wow, were they extra thick. Large, potato-shaped, no oil blisters, just large slabs of hardened potato. Coincidentally, there is a British company called Slabs that worked out exactly how these chips should be described. There was a traditional look and feel to the bag and a traditional look and feel to the chips. There is little more to be said than these were thick, firm and traditional. Great stuff.
Vicente Vidal Slight Aperitivo
You don’t see too many transparent bags these days, so these made a welcome change. They were pale, circular, thickly sliced reconstituted potato mush snacks moulded back into chips shapes. The taste was of very slightly salty potato.
Vicente Vidal Ajillo (Garlic) Potato Chips
First off, it would be remiss to mention the bag. It was basically a traditional white paper shopping bag. The graphics were also basic and traditional, which, while unimaginative in normal terms, looked great in this traditional format. Inside were two plain transparent polythene plasticky bags with chips inside. They were a traditional looking snack, with all their, hand-cooked curls, bends and shapes, with applied but not overly greasy oil. They also tasted of garlic. Difficult to criticise, except to say the flavouring was an acquired taste.
