Sensations Roasted Chicken And Thyme
Whenever I am hungry shopping, these are the first pack of crisps that I look for. I've tried both the 160g bag and the 40g bag, cleverly noticing that they taste the same! I'm ashamed to say that when I first tried the 160g bag, I ate the whole bag in one because they tasted so nice. I buy these a lot from a Home Bargains shop located near to where I live and they offer them at a very good price.
I would say that one of the main aspects that drew me to them to start with was the packaging. It's smart and relatively simple with a large S on the front of the packet, at the centre of the S there is a farm scene with a sunset or sunrise, the bottom loop of the S is made up of the main ingredients which, in this case is the potatoes, lemon and herbs. Looking at the packaging now, I see that there is a lack of the Chicken part, which is curious but doesn't really matter. The top loop of the S is covered with a vine and then a trumpet at the top. I'm not sure what the trumpet is meant to be saying or why it's there. Across the back of the packaging are all of the normal information you would find, ingredients, Guideline Daily Amounts and a brief explanation of what is in the packet!
When you first open the packet you are engulfed by the smell of roast chicken and especially the smell of herbs. I can never tell the difference between herbs but this is meant to be Thyme, all the same, they taste just as nice. You get a strong taste of chicken and a slightly weaker taste of the Thyme although the chicken is definitely the prominent taste in there. There is also a very slight taste of lemon, which really does add to the flavour of the crisps. The three main flavours are the Roast chicken, Thyme and Lemon, added together they make a very enjoyable flavour. One of the other things that I was really impressed about was the amount of flavour per crisp, it's very thick and creates a very strong taste which makes it much more enjoyable.
Even though the Sensations are slightly more expensive on average to a normal packet of walkers crisps I would say the Sensations are more upmarket than normal packets of Walkers crisps. They have much more flavour, very attractive packaging and generally just the extra quality that other packets of crisps don't seem to have.
I paid the cheap price of 35p for a 40g packet, although this was reduced from around 40-45p. The 160g packs cost me around 80p-£1.20 depending on where you buy from. I would definitely say that the extra cost is well worth it, a much nicer taste to other crisps out there. Sensations Roast Chicken and Thyme are definitely very high up on my list of most favourite crisps, I will definitely be continuing to buy these for all occasions.

Allergy Information - This is the only part that I can fault with the crisps, as far as I can see there are no Allergy Information on the packet, and me being a Ceoliac, It's essential that I make sure that I cut out Wheat and Gluten and It's very helpful when it says on the label "Suitable for Ceoliacs" as it saves me time checking the ingredients. I didn't actually check these before buying and now that I've gone through the ingredients I've noticed the Hydrolysed Wheat protein which I'm not sure whether I can have. As far as I'm concerned It didn't cause me any illness or troubles eating it before, so I'll eat it again!

Summary: I would definitly recommend these to anyone wanting a high quality snack!
