“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Crisps „
I adore crisps and I particularly enjoy a bag of shall we say more premium looking crisps from time to time. Don't get me wrong I like Walkers and and the likes but sometimes I have a good look in shops to see what flavours and brands I have missed and the other night I spotted these in my local Tesco costing 58p a bag. This is a little higher in price than what I usually pay for say Walkers and the likes but the packet looked really high quality and with the word finest on the front of it I couldn't wait to get my laughing gear around them!
The bag is made from foil inside and out, being silver on the inside and yellow and black on the outside and the bag I purchased (and the only size I spotted them available in) holds 40g of the crisps. On the front of the bag we are told that they are Tesco Finest Hand Cooked Crisps 'Mature Cheddar & Caramelised Onion' and that they are 'Mature Devonshire Cheddar, complemented by the sweetness of caramalised red onion' and they contain no artificial flavours, colours or MSG and that they are high in Oleic Sunflower Oil and High in Monounsaturates and there is an at a glance nutritional chart shown on there. On the back of the packet other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice being given, (these are suitable for Vegetarians by the way), the weight is stated (As I have listed already), we are told a little bit about the actual crisps and given a full nutritional rundown chart and contact details for Tesco are given. Nice looking, informative packaging this is and I do like the photograph on the front of the bag showing me the crisps, slab of cheese and red onions which gives it a nice rustic and wholesome feel!
These crisps are actually really lovely quality and taste great. Ungreasy they are a little hard but give us a lovely crunch. Open the bag up you get the smell of real mature cheddar and a light waft of sweet onion and I was shocked by the strength of these crisps cos most of them were not broke in the packet at all.
Being a light golden colour and large for the majority of the crisps these tasted of really mature cheese and smelt that way too. Rich and creamy in flavour although tasting really cheesy you could still manage to detect the flavour of the potato. Nicely seasoned and tangy you can also taste the onion in these and very naturally and sweetly so and not too harsh. I felt the flavours went really well together!
Living in the West Country a thing we have a lot here is onion chutneys and the like and I felt the cheese being again, a fairly local one to me really did have a sharp creamy feel and when it comes to these crisps I really do feel that you get quality and flavour in abundance and that they are a grown up and rather refined snack!
