Walkers Brazilian Salsa Crisps
Advantages: PRICE I SUPPOSE..FIRST WHIFF OF TOMATO
Disadvantages: NOTHING LIKE SALSA AND RATHER FLOWERY
Walkers have released 15 limited edition flavours in honour of the 2010 World Cup. Each flavour represents a country playing.
The Brazilians have offered us Salsa flavoured crisps. These are basically potato crisps that have been supposedly seasoned by Salsa.
The Salsa crisps come in a foil bag. The front of the bag has the green and yellow Brazil flag. It also has the familiar Walkers logo, flavour, a small nutrition chart and a trophy.
The back of the bag has the promotion details, ingredients, nutrition and details of how to contact Walkers.
The crisps are foil packed and therefore fresh and crunchy. They vary in size and are reasonably thin. They are a light golden colour with a noticable powdery seasoning and little green dots which I imagine are the herbs.
The crisps are made from potatoes and sunflower oil. They are then seasoned with a blend of dried milk lactose, salt, sugar, flavourings, thyme, rosemary, pepper, citric acid, fructose, malic acid, colour.
Each 25g bag contains :
130 calories (1 less than the others lol)
0.30 g salt
*Availability and Price*
These won't be around for long. You can pick up a single bag for around 50p. They also come in a 6pk multi pack with 2 other flavours for around £1.30 or 2 for £2 in most supermarkets including Tesco.
Ok am I boring you now with my crisp reviews..tuff! After sampling some bad, some ok and some good flavours of the World Cup range, I have just sampled the Brazil offering which is Salsa. When I think of salsa, tomatoes and spiciness springs to my mind.
Hmm well the ingredients aren't what I expected and seem to contain alot of herbs. No tomato? I can definently smell it though when I open the bag. Anyway the crisps are crunchy and very fresh. They have that powdery seasoning which makes you hands icky and smelly so a good handwash may be needed after consuming. Unless you tip the bag into your pie hole like I regularly do!
The crisps look ok, pretty standard but with the orange seasoning and little green specks. Biting into one, the herbs really rush through. The taste is quite strong. I don't mind herbs but this wasn't what I expected. I wanted spicy and tomato like and didn't get it! *Cue strop*
The herb flavour is also combined with a slightly aromatic taste which leaves an after taste in my mouth which I am not keen on at all. The thyme really comes through and that is something I do like. The overall taste is somewhat tangy which is something salsa normal is but these do not taste of salsa!
Clearly Walkers don't know how to make things taste the way they should. These crisps may smell like tomatoes when you open the bag but there is nothing in there to taste like that and therefore I am rating these down!
Poor effort Walkers..good luck with the next packet.
Thanks for reading
