We are often fairly critical of Walkers designs at Chips & Crisps, but not in this case. The Deep Ridged range tick all the boxes. The black background allows the imagery to pop. The Deep Ridged wording is large, dominant, commanding and is boldly flavour colour coded. The image of the Ridged Crisp on a backdrop of a mountainous landscape also provides a masculine look and feel. Even the logo is a less is more size, which is rare for Walkers.
These thickly cut Crisps included a brittle and crisp crunch. Thick Crisps are not always crunch-sustainable, but these carried on snapping and cracking until around three quarters of the way through, until the mush stage appeared.
These were particularly deeply cut Ridged Crisps. The cuts were triangular in shape and perhaps 5mm deep. While there were no oil boils the cut and thickness were the most noticeable aspect anyway. The colouring was a bright yellow and there was no visible seasoning despite the normally well seasoned variety.
A Nose Plunge Test provided a meaty sort of aroma. The flavour undoubtedly hinted towards meat, and perhaps even beef, but the overwhelming quality was a syrupy sweetness.
