Red Sky Anglesey Sea Salt Crisps
Advantages: crunchy, well salted, pretty packaging, acceptable price
Today I will tell you all about the Walkers Red Sky Anglesey Sea Salt potato crisps.
I live in Germany and we don't have any Walkers crisps here - much to my sadness, because they are defenitely my favourites. When I visit the UK I load up on crisps, but supplies run out fast. ;) But to my luck there's Approved Food, where you can buy British food for very little money and have it delivered straight to your door.
I've tried some Red Sky crisps before when I was in England, but I couldn't remember if I had tried the Anglesey ones yet. Since they were quite cheap of Approved Food, I decided to give them a go!
These crisps come in a big bag that contains 150g. The bag is mainly blue, showing a beautiful sky above the outlins of farm's field with a tractor. The brand name Red Sky is written over that sky-like background in big letters. The slogan "Nature's promise of a glorious day" is set around that. The name of the crisps' flavour is stated and it is also mentioned that the product supports the Prince's Countryside Fund. On the lower right of the bag the nutritional values for a 30g portion of the crisps are stated.
On the back of the bag, the crisps are described as tasting of the countryside. The products is set to promote the beauty of rural Britain and Red Sky supports projects like Farmer Network in Cumbria.
It is promised that the products contains 100% natural seasonings, resulting in 100% natural taste. The sea salt that is contained in the crisps is supposed to be indeed be from Anglesey.
Of course the ingredients and nutriotional values are listed on the bag as well.
I really love the design of the packaging - the whole bag looks very calm and soothing.
Sometimes I really like crisps that are merely salted. Here in Germany, ready salted crisps are still a novelty - we are crazy about chips with paprika taste. ;) But crisps that are only seasoned with salt bring out the potato in the taste and thuss are something completely different!
I really, really liked these crisps. They are not too salty, but still salty enough to taste exciting. The crisps themselves are of great quality and taste like really, really good potatoes.
My urge to nibble was satisfied by them very well. I didn't feel the need to eat the whole bag in one go as it something happens with crisps, but I really savoured them. They make a great snake and made me feel less guilty than other crisps! They aren't as fatty as some crisps are and have indeed less calories than others.
If you don't finish the bag in one go, don't worry - the crisps stay fresh long if you roll up the bag a little!
