Golden Wonder, Cheese and Onion Crisps
The cheese and onion crisps from golden wonder come in a green bag which has red text in medium print in the centre saying "Golden wonder" and a yellow blob of gold behind the print, this works really well as the contrast between the text colour and the pack colour draws the consumers eye to the product and the splash of gold/bronze behind the red text further empathises the brand name, tells the consumer instantly that is a golden wonder product and furthermore it helps to break up the monotony of green packing.
Overall its quite a simple idea and colour scheme but it is executed to perfection such that it's one of the few occasions in packing design that I have seen that I simply applaud the company for genius of it and showing that the mantra "keep it simple" is not always a bad thing in product design.
The Crisps have a dark yellow orange colour to them which is more typical of barbecue type crisps than other brands of cheese and onion crisps; the crisps themselves are irregular circular shaped crisps and are of slightly smaller size per crisp than walkers crisps.
These were simply delicious, they had quite a lot of salt but not too much to make you thirsty or to be disgusting, they had a very strong cheesy taste and a gentle hint of onion, the easiest way to describe the flavour is very deep and intense, probably the best tasting cheese and onion crisps I have tasted. Not only was the flavour very lingering, addictive and impulsive but the crisps themselves are often cooked to perfection, indeed my most recent acquisition of this product was one such occasion, it managed to be crunchy yet gentle at the same time. There wasn't a hint of irritating sogginess as found in wotsits and other crisps nor was there a jaggedness or harshness as can frequently be found in walkers crisps, simply put they give the consumer bite without biting the consumer back.
It's a mixed bag so to speak per 25 g pack you get 1.5 g of protein which is good for confectionary that frequently do not provide any protein and a mere 13.1 g of cars which is modes however it has a high fat content of 7.8g which means it is actually more fattening than many similar sized chocolate products. Although even here it's not all bad news as 6.8g of that is unsaturated fats which are better for you, 1g of saturated fats is still quite high but on its own it's nothing to be concerned about. It does have a quite high 0.2 g of sodium per bag and this is probably the most negative thing about the product.
Per 25 g bag, which is what I typically consume, it costs around 55 pence depending on the vendor you purchase from. Which is fairly middle of the road but given the above average taste (in my opinion) it is well worth purchasing, especially if you see a deal on a multi pack
Summary: A great tasting product with run of the mill cost but above run of the mill taste.
