Probably the best designed Walkers bags so far. They are black with a flavour colour coded shield in the centre. The use of the shield shape is synonymous with strong imagery, which these flavours are all about. The bold wording also reveals the worthiness of the product inside. We would have liked the flavour description itself to be more prominent, but that is the only criticism.
A reasonable Crunch given the thickly cut nature of Ridged Crisps, but still slightly mulchy to quickly.
These Crisps featured thinly cut Ripples. They were well soaked with oil and there were a few that had a slight orange colouring.
Walkers marked these out with just one ‘flame’ in their hotness scale which immediately created a problem. Chilli should never be mild in any Crisp variety. There is no need. People know what they are buying you really do not need to worry about their ability to handle hot food. Having said all that there was s till a nice balance between the Chilli and the Lime, which was equally evident. We would therefore suggest that we may be doing the flavour a little bit of a disservice. Indeed, as the weakest [heat wise] of the Max Strong range, this arguably matches up to Walkers other claim, that they are “Perfect with Beer.” We won’t argue with that here, except to say beer doesn’t need its flavour altering with strong flavours already in your mouth.
