Taste test: These are thick, crunchy, dark kettle-style chips with a generous helping of chives spread all over them, along with a very mild cheddar cheese taste.
They leave a lot of powdery residue on your fingers. Taste is about average, but they do win some points for being particularly crunchy.
Smell test: It really does smell like cheddar and chives.
From the package: “A New Yorker called George Crum invented the crisp in 1853. 'Crum's Crisps' ... or so legend has it. We find 'bold' potatoes made especially for good crisps. They are bigger than average on account of being grown for longer and with plenty of space between them. We slice our potatoes particularly thick to ensure maximum crispness. We then hand cook our crisps, changing the oil frequently. Dirty or burnt oil would of course taint the taste of the crisps and ruin the seasoning and natural flavors we use.”
