“ Type: Crisps / Brand: Waitrose „
Waitrose own brand of hand cooked crisp are without a doubt at the top end of the crisp market and can be found in the "posh" crisp section alongside brands such as kettle chips. The Waitrose brand works out slightly cheaper at £1.49 for a share sized bag of 150g whereas, kettle chips average (from a Waitrose supermarket) at £1.55 for a 150gs. Waitrose own brand of crisps comes in a variety of flavours, salt and vinegar, Texan BBQ and sea salt. But for me the yogurt, cucumber and mint is by far the tastiest of the four flavours. The yoghurt, cucumber and mint flavour has additional benefits as it is suitable for vegetarians and those would want to avoid eating eggs, nuts or soya. The packaging is in a pastel green with the title in large bold letters across the packet, so they are easy to find on shelf. Now on to the most important part ...the TATSE!! This flavour is a mouth cooling experience. The cucumber is subtle and is lightly complimented by a small dose of yoghurt and the mint finishes off the flavour with that extra needed twang. One of my first impressions was that the mint might be slightly overpowering, but the three flavours are evenly distributed and go perfectly together. The texture is similar to kettle chips (as they are hand cooked crisps) so you experience an added crunchiness which you don't always get from regular crisp brands. The only downside to these crisps is that they are incredibly morish, so don't feel ashamed you end up finishing a family sized pack to yourself. This flavour is unique to Waitrose and one of the most interesting combinations of flavours I have encountered. So don't delay, rush to your nearest Waitrose supermarket and check it out for yourself.
