While Walkers minimalist designs generally abuse great design conventions with their bland and characterless styling, the Sensations range takes the same principles but gets it completely right. The bags are all black, which instantly makes them stand out on shelves, and even manages to add that upper class effect that they are going for. There is a broad flavour reference design in the centre and even the odd squiggly lines dotted about add to the exotic look and feel. For once Walkers have even taken the less is more approach with their small logo, which pops brightly from each bag.
These were very snappy crack. A first bite shattered through the Crisp, which, although compromising its integrity fairly quickly, the Crisp still managed to maintain its crunch throughout.
These Crisps were mostly large in size. There was skin on most edges. The general colouring was a darkish yellow which drifted into slightly brown. There were few oil boils but lots of little red and green flecks dotted about.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed little of the exotic spices within. It is not often that this can be said of Walkers mass production generic flavours, but the flavour simply burst out of these Crisps. There was a sweet Chilli sauce blend of spices that produced a quick counterpunch of spicy heat. A very well executed Crisp.
