I buy these Seabrooks crisps because they are made quite locally to me (in Yorkshire) and I believe it's better for the environment to purchase local produce. I usually buy the plain salted crisps but I most recently bought these Cream Cheese and Chives as I thought the flavour sounded delicious.
I bought these in a multipack of 6 for only £1 in Tesco although I have seen the crisps priced up to £1.70 at other stores. The crisp packet can be distinguished from others because it has a green colouring to it.
The crisps are 'crinkle' cut so they have deep ridges which gives them an extra crunchiness when eating. The crisps are sprinkled with a white powdery covering as well as rich green speckles of what is described as a 'herb' in the ingredients. They look very appetising. Their texture is crunchy but not too hard.
Each bag is 25g and in this the crisps provide 129 calories and 7.3g of fat. The crisps contain a milk ingredient but are suitable for vegetarians and are also gluten free. They are cooked in "pure sunflower oil".
The crisps have a mild onion flavour and an even milder cream cheese flavour. Ultimately the flavour just isn't strong enough for my liking although it does replicate a herby cream cheese quite well. They are a like a mild cheese and onion flavour with a creamy undertone. They leave an onion and garlic flavoured aftertaste. They also taste slightly sweet and the ingredients actually contain sugar so be aware of this as it's an ingredient I wouldn't normally expect in crisps.
One bag is quite filling on its own or as part of a meal. They are quite satisfying but I still feel I would like a little more of both a stronger creamy flavour and a sharper garlic/onion taste too.
However, I like these enough to continue to purchase them and I think they are reasonably priced.
