      Indulgent crisps perfect for a treat

      Although I do have quite a sweet tooth I do enjoy savoury snack too and often indulge in the odd packet of crisps. Having a slight craving today for crisps I decided to treat myself to a packet of Kettle Chips and unusually for me opted to purchased the lightly salted flavour as I normally pick a bolder flavour when buying crisps. The packet I purchased was an individual one containing 40g and although had the R.R.P price of 55p printed on the corner of the packet I actually only paid 35p from B&M which is a discount store. The packaging of the kettle chips is made of foil and is very simple in design being plain white with brown writing. On the front of the packet is simply the name, flavour, weight contained and a statement which says 'nothing artificial.' On the back of the packet you can find more detailed product information including ingredients listings, nutritional information, storage instructions and that the kettle chips are suitable for Vegans. It also lists other information about the product which includes that no MSG's are added, no artificial flavours or colours are used and that the best potatoes are always selected. These chips are not the healthiest of options, each 40g packet contains the following nutritional information: Calories - 205 Sugar -0.2g Fat - 12.0g Saturates - 1.4g Salt - 0.4g The chips themselves are quite thickly cut and at appear quite dark in colour and quite greasy. It states on the packet that the colour of the chips is determined by the natural sugars in the potatoes. The chips actually look like crisps you make yourself at home and are all different shapes and sizes. I love the taste of these chips and although they look greasy and leave my fingers looking a little greasy too they don't taste that way at all. They are very crisp and crunchy and have a slightly caramelized flavour. These chips are as it states on the packet lightly salted and this for me is perfect as I do prefer this to the heavily salted crisps you can get. Overall I really enjoyed these chips they are excellent quality and very addictive, I could have easily have eaten another packet. I will certainly be purchasing them again and will even stick to the lightly salted flavour again as I surprisingly really enjoyed them.

      A top quality simply-flavoured crisp that tastes fab and is made from natural ingredients

      As a major crisp lover, I have tried all the flavours and brands under the sun. I usually go for strong flavours, but have recently started to buy these because they are great for sharing with people who may not appreciate my spicy tastes (e.g. my children!). The packaging is excellent - a strong big bag which keeps the crisps really fresh and looks good quality. It is obvious what you are getting - lightly salted crisps - there are no fads or confusing images. The simple design and colours reflect the plain flavour choice well. The "grab bag" that I usually buy contains 150g of crisps, which is perfect for sharing - we are a family of 5 and they are the perfect size for us to each have a portion of crisps with our butties or as a quick snack in the car. Equally, my hubbie and I can quite easily polish off a bag to ourselves with a glass of wine, and if we have people round a bag of these is perfect to chuck in a bowl for a quick coffee table sharing snack. The ingredients of the crisps are refreshingly simple - potatoes, sunflower oil, sea salt. And yet they taste so good! It is great that they are so natural, as I feel better about giving them to my family. Calorie-wise, they contain 513 calories and 30.1g of fat per 100 grams, so a bag has 756.5 calories and 45g of fat. That sounds like a lot, and it is, but come on, they're crisps not apples! Also, you usually share them so if there are 5 of you like in my family they have 151.3 calories per 30g portion and 9g of fat each. The size of the crisps is great - they are satisfyingly thick, and many of them are very big. They have a lovely rustic texture and a great crunch factor. They are moist enough, and you can taste the oil when you bite into them, but they do not have a greasiness or a synthetic powderiness. The lightly salted flavour is crisp and appeals to the senses. It is a quality salt taste, and the simple flavouring means that the potatoeyness of the crisps is not lost. Delicious!

        the best crisp in the world ever.

        I am a big lover of the crisp, I could probably live off them eating nothing else - however I am aware of how unhealthy they are so I try not to eat them too often. Kettle Chips is one of those brands of crisps that I just cant say no to, if I walk past them in the shop I just cant help myself and almost always end up buying a bag! This review in particular is about the multibag pack of Kettle Chips you can buy from most good supermarkets now. The Packaging Kettle Chips come in a plain and rather sophisticated looking white foil packet, with the Kettle Chips logo on the front with the flavour undernearh. Beneath that it has their signature statement 'absolutely nothing artificial', the bag is quite plain, I think this is to reflect the lack of ingredients and the simplicity of the crisps that are inside. The back of the packet has a little story about how the crisps are made, the nutritional values and ingredients, and a list of things that are 'good to know' about the crisps such as no articifial flavours or colours etc The Nutritional Value and Ingredients The ingredients in these crisps are incredibly simple - select potatoes, sunflower oil and sea salt - thats it! It makes me wonder if Kettle Chips can taste that good with just these ingredients why on earth do other brands of crisps have all sorts of stuff in them?! Kettle dont as MSG to their crisps, there are no artificial colours or flavours, no hydrogenated fats, and only use sunflower oil - all stuff that is good to know. Despite the lack of ingredients and hydrogenated fat however, dont be fooled into thinking this is a healthy crisp. As with most foods, they taste so good because they are bad for you! A 30g serving (which is one of the little bags from a multipack) contains 154 calories and 9g of fat - having said that though, the saturated fat of these crisps is quite low at only 1g. The Taste There really is no crisp that is as tasty and as crunchy as the Kettle crisp, it is without a doubt the best tasting crisp out there. They are crunchier than most crisps and really satisfying to eat, they really taste like a think and crunchy bit of potato - whereas most crisps taste artificial and not like they were ever once a potato at all. The flavour is perfect, not too salty not too plain, and they are incredibly moorish. I have to be careful not to buy one of the big sharing bags as I will just polish it off in one sitting without realising what Im doing. The Price Kettle Crisps are more expensive than your regular crisps, the big sharing bags are usually around £2 - £2.50, whilst the multipacks are around the same for 5 bags, and the single bags are usually about 70p. However if you shop around they are almost always on offer atleast somewhere. Overall I would definitely recommend you try these if you havent already, you wont be disappointed - if anything you will be disappointed once you go back to having a bag of walkers or mccoys or whatever brand of crisps you usually eat!

        Disadvantages

        If you're going to eat crisps... might as well splash out on these

        It is not good to eat crisps all that often because of their high salt and fat (and also calorie) content, so I only eat and buy them quite occasionally. If I am hungry, then I am not too picky on what type and brand of crisps I am offered... However, if I am treating myself on a special occasion, saying well done to myself or just in need of a good indulgence, I have certain standards that my crisps have to meet, and very few brands manage to meet all of them. This being said, there are a few crisp brands that are absolutely delicious and I feel sorely tempted to buy them every time I walk past the crisps aisle in a supermarket, before reminding myself of their unhealthiness. One of these brands is Kettle Chips; probably some of the best potato crisps that I have ever tasted, and will ever taste. Because these are considered to be luxury crisps, they are not exactly what you could call cheap. Whereas with regular crisp brands (for example, Walkers crisps) you could buy a big sharing bag for more or less at around £1, Kettle chips can normally be found at supermarkets for just under the £2 mark. Though this does not seem like a HUGE difference, every penny counts, and some would say that this is a price they are not prepared to pay, for something that is so easily polished off. However, there are some deals on these Kettle chips at times- quite recently they were only £1 from Tesco, which I thought was a fantastic bargain. There were not many Lightly Salted packs left, but I managed to grab a few. They are packaged in a rather sophisticated pale plastic packaging, with the 'Kettle Chips' logo printed directly on the front in plain view. This package can easily be pulled open, and the exterior keeps the crisps very fresh. You can buy a big sharing bag, which you can either finish in one go whilst sharing with friends, or eat little amounts at a time. I find that when I eat Kettle Chips by myself, I do not finish the whole package myself (though I do feel like it sometimes!) and I use a peg to seal the crisp packet closed so that it can retain its freshness. I am aware that these Kettle Chips also do come in smaller 6 pack multi packs (I have seen them hanging around in some supermarkets; at first I thought I was seeing a giant sharing pack of Kettles!)- however, I rarely ever buy these instead of the big sharing bags, as I think they are less good value for money. Why waste money on a product that is already quite expensive as it is? The sharing bag is the perfect size for me. This comes in different flavours, for example Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar. I like all these flavours, but my favourite is still the good old simple Lightly Salted variety; the simplicity of it makes it taste even better, and the addition of some flavours can overshadow how tasty the actual potato crisps are. So how do these crisps taste? Well, they taste delicious, I can tell you, and they are the best tasting crisps I have tasted for quite a while! This may be because they are quite oily and greasy (so consequently they are not great for your health) but in small portions as a snack, it is OK. After all, when since could you buy non greasy, totally healthy crisps? It says that it is Lightly Salted, and stays true to its word; it has a light salty flavour to it which is very pleasant and at the same time is not overly salty unlike some crisps. The quality of the crisps is brilliant- they are sturdy and crunchy unlike some inferior branded crisps which crumble away under your fingers. They are satisfyingly thick, so each crisp does tend to last you a little bit longer. As they are handmade, the crisp size is not regular (you can get really big crisps sometimes) and this adds to the authenticity of the brand. Yes, we know that crisps are not good for us, but if you are going to snack on them, then Kettle Chips is by far the best brand of crisps that I have tried out so far. They are a little more expensive than other crisp brands... but why not save up and eat crisps less frequently, making each time a luxury? I would give these Kettle Chips 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars.

          My favourite hand cooked crisps...

          Kettle chips come in 3 sizes of bag... the smallest is 40g which costs around 40p, 150g which is around £1.40 and 300g which is around £3.00. However Sainsburys have an offer on the 150g bags which are a £1.00. This is a really good price so I shall be stocking up! These are definitely crisps which should be bought as a treat so for adults only! They do several flavours but I must admit that the lightly salted is my favourite. The crisps themselves do look like the usual handcooked crisp which is that they are much crunchier and they are darker in colour. However they are also thicker in consistency compared to your usual walkers type crisp so I'm usually quite full after half a packet of the 150g..! However, when you open the packet it does seem like they are half full so don't expect the packet to be full to the brim... They do feel a bit greasy to touch but I think thats normal for a crisp... The packet itself is like a foil material on the inside and the packet is easy to open so no struggling to get in them..although the packet itself cannot be recycled.. Best of all, there is no artificial colours.... just potatoes, sunflower oil and sea salt...

          .

          I know that a lot of people don't like plain flavoured Crisps. I like them now and again as they are tasty and that bit nicely seasoned. Just a little sprinking of Salt that you can taste. The downside is that sometimes I feel that the Crisps perhaps seem that bit more greasy, which I don't understand. After all a flavour is a flavour. The bag is a good thick bag. You get these in a 150g bag for around £1.50, but in some places you can get them in a 40g bag. Not that easy to find this way though. The bag is a sort of off white colour with the writing in a light gold colour. Although the Kettle Chips Crisps are perhaps a bit expensive, they are good quality and these Crisps I don't mind paying that bit extra for. These Crisps are really crunchy. They are hard but still break up easily enough. A lot of them seem to be folded over for some reason, which I suppose makes them appear even more crunchy. They are more a light brown colour so darker than other Crisps. The Salt is just right on these. You can certainly taste the Salt, but it isn't too overpowering and too Salty. Just the right amount of scattering. Yes a bit more money, but nice for a treat and afterall you can make this flavour more interesting by Dipping them into Dips if you want.

          Classic crunchy crisps

          My uncle has a condition where he can only eat certain foods and the only crisps that he can eat are Kettle Chips. This means that whenever we have family gatherings these are always there and I've become addicted to them - in fact I think most of my family have. Kettle Chips are hand cooked potato chips that are made with the most simple ingredients and has nothing artificial added to them. They're made from potatoes, sunflower oil and sea salt and the simple ingredients are the reason why my uncle can eat them. Despite being made from such a simple list of ingredients, these really are delicious crisps. You can see that they're made from slices of potatoes as the shape is the same - large but thin round slices. They each have a dark golden colour from where they've been baked in the sunflower oil and this has made them all very crispy. These are the most crispy and crunchy crisps that I've ever tried so I wouldn't recommend eating them when watching a film as you'd thoroughly irritate the people around you from all the crunching! These are just a lightly salted flavour and, even though this might sound boring, they don't taste boring at all. They're only lightly salted but the taste is quite salty and this is what makes them so addictive. That and their crunchiness! These aren't the cheapest of crisps costing around £1.60 for a sharing size bag (the same size as most other sharing bags such as Doritos). But here you really are paying for the excellent quality and taste so the price is worth it.

            Not for me these...I'm not posh enough obviously to appreciate them!

            When it comes to crisps I'm a right muncher of them. I simply adore crisps! The other day I spotted these in a corner shop I was in and at 59p a bag I decided to treat myself to some knowing that they are famed for being good quality and I really did fancy them! The Packaging: Cream and white bag which is silver foil on the inside on the front of the bag I am told that they are Kettle Chips, Lightly Salted 'Absolutely nothing artificial' and the size is stated which is 40g and the best before date is clearly displayed. On the back of the bag other information given includes being told a bit about the product, ingredients and size are stated, a full nutritional rundown chart is displayed as well as an at a glance one, I am told that they are suitable for Vegetarians and contact details for Kettle Foods are given. Very nice and informative packaging this is and of course it's an easy to open bag too! A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Bag: We like to keep things simple.... We always insist on using the best potatoes we can find, hand cook them with care in small batches, then season with great tasting ingredients. So what you get are naturally crunchy and tasty chips, each one a little different from the last. There's no need to add anything artificial - MSG, artificial flavours, colours and the like. And that's the way it's been for over 25 years. Simple really. The Crisps Themselves: Light cream in colour these crisps you could call robust for want of a better word! I found my crisps to be mainly oval in shape and not broken meaning they really can stand up to being handled! When you open the bag you get a a very natural smell of potato and that also comes across in the taste of them too. I agree with Kettle these are natural crisps! Lightly salted to bring out the potato taste, I liked the flavour of these and they certainly were not one bit greasy or cheap tasting...however.... for me these were so robust that they were hard and too crunchy for my liking. I simply found them to good a quality and that they hurt my teeth! If you like products that have a natural smell, taste and feel to them than go ahead try them, they have no nasties in them at all however for me they're too posh and not salted enough as well as really making my jaw ache lol! Nutritional Information Per Bag: Calories: 193 Sugar: 0.4g Fat: 10.3g Saturates: 1.2g Salt: 0.4g Available in all good supermarkets at about 59p a bag and these Kettle crisps are available in other flavours too.

              Try them and make your own mind up

              Kettle Chips Lightly Salted Description: Crisps/Snacks These crisps come in a rather plain, thick, white packet with the logo on the front. These are not the cheapest crisps on the market, a 225g bag costs me £1.80 from my local supermarket, though they can sometimes be bought on special offer. These crisps claim to be special because they are hand cooked, in small batches to ensure freshness. This gives them a crunchiness that is quite unique to kettle chips and because they are thicker than other crisps too, you definitely notice how much crunchier they are. These are lighly salted, which means that they taste just right, some crisps can be a little too salty, but these are perfect. Because the actual taste of the crisp is so delicious, you only need a little salt to provide the perfect accompaniment. These also taste really, really fresh which must be down to the way that they are cooked. Ingredients are as follows; Select potatoes Sunflower oil Sea salt. Typical Values Per 100g are as follows; Energy 2015 kJ Energy 482 kcal Protein 6.3 g Carbohydrate 56.0 g of which sugars 0.9 g Fat 25.8 g of which saturates 2.9 g Fibre 5.1 g Sodium 0.36 g Equivalent as salt 0.9 g These crisps are very tasty, but I find them just a little too crunch for my taste. Mr Siamese loves them and will happily munch his way through a whole bag if left to his own devices. These are definitely posh crisps and they do taste delicious, but I find that after eating a few, they become hard work. I also object to the price of these, yes they are nice but at that price, I would flipping well expect them to be! I will buy these again for Mr Siamese but for me, will stick to other crisps and snacks that are a little less expensive and a little less crunchy!

                Give them a try

                Ever picked up a bag of crisps that say ready salted and put your hand in to get that first crisp and felt a grease and salt mix coat your hand straight away and been put off your crisps? Glad it is not just me. Kettle Chips are different from the main brands you see on your supermarket shelves with these crisps simple yet brilliant. The aim of Kettle Chips is that they have no added nasties in them and are hand cooked in small batches to make sure each and every single crisp is crunchy and flavoursome. The favourite flavour for me is the most boring one for most but I simply love Kettle Chips lightly salted as they are well made crisps that have simply had a little bit of sea salt added to enhance the flavours rather than overpower everything else and so you still get the true taste of the crisp and taste the quality and care taken to make each bag. The crisps are packaged well and normally price between 40p and 65p per normal sized bag (share size bags are also available for about £1 to £1.00) and in my opinion this is excellent value for a quality product. What about the health side of things? Typical Values Per 100g Energy (kilojoules) 2015 kJ Energy (kilocalories) 482 kcal Protein 6.3 g Carbohydrate 56.0 g - of which sugars 0.9 g Fat 25.8 g - of which saturates 2.9 g Fibre 5.1 g Sodium 0.36 g - Equivalent as salt 0.9 g So why choose Kettle Chips over all the others? Positives: - Fresh and crunchy crisps - Quality flavouring that does not leave you feeling like you licked a salt shaker with no lid on - Well packaged - Good value for money - No added nasties - Less saturated fats than other crisps Negatives: - None Simple and quality flavour that allows you to appreciate the crisp as it should be.

                All natural crisps

                I'm normally not a fan of 'plain' or ready salted crisps - generally preferring to opt for the weird and wonderful flavours that our little blue-and-green planet has to offer. However, 'Kettle Chips Lightly Salted' are a tasty snack in their own right, and have the rare benefit in the crisp-world of using all natural ingredients. Although no crisps can be described as 'healthy', Kettle Chips are arguably better for you than most, as they don't use artificial flavours or colours, monosodium glutomate, or hydrodgenated fat. Price & Availability - - - - - - - - - - - - You can currently purchase a 225g bag of Lightly Salted Kettle Chips for £2 from Tesco, which is a little pricey when you consider the fact that a similar sized bag of Doritos comes to around 50p less. Ingredients - - - - - - - - Where these particular crisps excel, is in their limited ingredient list which consists of; Select potatoes, sunflower oil, and sea salt. Kettle Chips say that the potatoes they use are "the best potatoes we can find", which, I suppose, is a reassuring claim. Flavour - - - - - Each of the hand cooked crisps is incredibly crunchy, and feels slightly thicker than the common-or-garden Walkers brand. The taste is delicious, and what I appreciate most of all, is the fact that the use of salt is at a minimum - especially when compared to other crisps that I have tried in the past. This allows the eater to appreciate the delicate taste of the potato, rather than just getting a mouth full of salt. Nutritional Info Per 100g - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Calories: 482 Fat: 25.8g Saturated Fat: 2.9g Sugar: 0.9g Salt: 0.9g Final Word - - - - - - - Although a little expensive, you really get what you pay for with the Kettle Chips Lightly Salted variety. Their crunchy nature is complemented by a delicate flavour which makes putting the bag down a difficult thing to do - recommended.

                  Kettle Chips are one of the premium brands of Crisps in my view. Although they have the price to match the quality, they aren't really that more expensive than other similar sized bags of Crisps, but they are worlds apart. I like plain old Ready Salted Crisps, and although I do like other flavours in the range, these ones are just plain and nice. The packaging is alright for these. Nothing that special though. They are sold in 150g bags. The bag is white in colour and a nice thick, expenisve feeling bag. The writing is quite large over the bag and we get the Kettle Chips branding which takes over a good portion of the bag, and Lightly Salted near the bottom. The writing is in a kind of faded gold colour, which looks alright against the bag. There is no facy pictures or colourings on this, but this makes the bag look more sophisticated in my view. When you open the bag I think you get 2 scents coming from the bag. There is a slight smell of Saltiness. Not an overly powerful smell I have to say. The other smell is a kind of Oily scent. Perhaps not the nicest scent, but it sort of goes with the Salt smell. The Crisps are a darkish brown colour and quite a lot of them have a curve to them. Hardly any are straight. When you bite into them they are really Crispy and Crunchy, and I have to say watch out for the sharp corners depending on what angle you bite into these. They could give you a nasty jab in the gum. There was nice flavouring on these Crisps, but since I like Crisps and Chips really Salty, then I wouldn't have minded a bit more Salt seasoning. I think that is just me though, and I could always add the Salt myself anyway if needed. The Crisps also has a slight greasy texture when you felt them, and I think you could taste a little greasy aftertaste, but I still think this brand of Crisps are great. There is 193 calories per 40g bag, so perhaps a little higher than other Crisps in this way. Nice though! I would recommend this brand of Crisp, as they taste good, and I think they taste expensive and of quality. The flavour is nice as well, as it can go with anything, and i'm sure most people wouldn't mind Lightly Salted Crisps.

                    Hand Cooked Potato Chips

                    I seem to be eating my way through a lot of crisps at the moment so when I went up to Morrisons I found I needed to stock up. The problem I find when choosing crisps is there are so many different types its really difficult picking the right one. Anyway after much deliberation I went for a multi pack of Kettle Chips, 6 packets of crisps consisting of 2 packets of Sea Salt & Balsamic Vinegar, 2 packets of Lightly Salted and 2 packets of Mature Cheddar & Red Onion. So basically there Salt & Vinegar, Ready Salted & Cheese and Onion poshed up a bit. Kettle Chips were first produced to the UK in 1988 and currently come in 10 irresistable flavours. Now I only bought them this afternoon so so far I have only tried the Lightly Salted flavour. So what did I think of them? Well when I tried my first one I was quite unimpressed. The crisps tasted like they had been left out over night which is not a taste I'm particularly keen on. Anyway I perservered and gradually they started to taste a little better and soon became quite moreish. Now the pack says these are crunchy crisps and I can vouch for them. They were extremely crunchy, in fact I dont think I've ever come across a crisp even close to being as crunchy as these. Saying that it did not stop me finishing the pack and realising that overall they were a really nice crisp. I personally would have prefered them to be a little more salted just to give them a little more taste. There is absolutely nothing artificial in a bag of Lighly Salted Kettle Chips. Hydrogenated fat is not used, they only use sunflower oil and all potato chips are hand cooked. Each bag is 30g which is more than some multi pack crisps although they still didnt seem to last long!!. The crisps contain potatoes (who would of guessed it), sunflower oil & sea salt. A 30g packet contains 145 calories and 7.7g of fat. They are suitable for vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs. Conclusion I am going to have to say that although they had a shakey start I have decided that the Lightly Salted Kettle Chips have my vote. I now have to develop the will power to stop me eating the rest of the multi pack before the day is out. The Multi Pack I bought was from Morrisons and cost £1.33. Not a bad price all in all. They are definitely worth a once over and if you like a specific flavour you can also by them in the larger bags which contain 150g, apparently these a for sharing (I'm not sure what they could possibly mean by that)

                      Read review.

                      **Introduction** I was in my local Boots store when I decided to use my advantage card points to pay for my lunch as I am a little short of money until this Wednesday when I get paid. I'm sure all of you know about the Boots meal deal. Anyway I had picked up my sandwich (Turkey and Swiss Cheese) and my drink (orange and passion fruit Drench) So there was one more thing to choose and as I am quite picky with crisps I had a long look and then saw these. I had bought these before but not for a while so I picked a packet of these up and walked towards the counter. **Kettle Foods** These Kettle Chips are made by Kettle Foods who began in 1978 by Cameron Healy who started the company from Salem, Oregon in the United States. The first Kettle Chips were made in 1982 after Healy discovered the taste of homemade crisps or as the American's call them Chips. He then established his business in the United Kingdom in 1987 and the the following year they were well on their way to becoming the company they are now. **The Chips** These chips come in three different sizes, the small standard ones which are around 55p, the multi packs which contain six for around £1.80 and the large bags which are great for sharing whilst watching a film or sports match on the television. When making these Kettle Chips they wanted them to be as healthy and non artificial as possible so you will only get the slight sea salt topping with these particular crisps. Looking at these chips I must say they look a lot nicer than many of their rivals and you can smell the nice potato chip scent that they of course give off. **The Taste** I love the taste of these Kettle Chips. As you can see I am reviewing the "Lightly Salted" otherwise known as Ready Salted. As you bite into these crisps you really get the crunchiness of them. The taste is the best I have tasted with crisps like this. I would probably rank them up there with Pringles and McCoy's as my favourite crisps. One thing you might find with other crisps is that they often have a couple that have not come out well and do not taste as nice as the rest. There is no problem to report like that with these as they are all perfect. **Overall** These are absolutely superb tasting and are great to share whilst watching a Movie or just as a nice snack. Give these a try if you haven't already as they deserve to be eaten. They are also quite healthy for crisps at 193 calories in a 40g bag so that is another plus. Why not try some dips with them if you like that sort of thing. I'm sure they are suitably versatile to work with dips. So I highly recommend these Kettle Chips to you.

                        If there was ever a 'King' of crisps then this would be it. Kettle chips are possibly the most moreish crisps I have ever tasted. You can get lots of flavours now, but I have stayed loyal to the original flavour of lightly salted. The crips taste salty but not in a fake way like walkers salt and vinegar, or mcoys. The crisps are very crunchy, and sometimes have given me a sore mouth if I eat them too quickly, so be careful when giving them to kids. Unlike other crisp brands, you actually get a large crisp that hasnt broken into a million pieces. Even carrying these back from Sainsburys I still ended up with the majority of the packet still intact. You can get these bags in 2 sizes, there are the snack size versions which arent really worth bothering with as you get about 10 crips for nearly the price of a large packet, as the larger packet is nearly always on offer in my local shop. The larger bags take me about 3 days to get through, although I could eat the packet in one go I think I would feel very sick. They are not so bad for you as other brands of crisps but they do have a high salt content so not best to eat all the time. These kettle chips fill you up and make a very nice snack to give to your guests at parties or you could just keep them all to yourself.
