Kettle Chips Mozzarella & Pesto Review
I love Kettle Chips and was pleased to see this new Mozzarella & Pesto "Seasonal Edition". All the products in the Kettle Chips range are hand cooked and seasoned with real ingredients - there's nothing artificial in these crisps at all.
I'm a fan of both mozzarella and pesto but I don't think I have ever seen this combination as a crisp flavour. Mozzarella is a very creamy and mild flavoured cheese which is often used on pizza - it's a great base for stronger flavours, such as those found in a classic pesto.
The crisps have the same great look as you would expect from Kettle Chips - golden in colouring and very generously seasoned. The dominant flavour is the pesto, especially from the basil and garlic. The cheese flavour is delicious too, it's creamy and mild but still strong enough to make these cheesy crisps. The creaminess from the cheese and strong herby notes from the pesto make this flavour an interesting twist on a classic cheese crisp flavour. If you love cheese and onion crisps then I'm sure you will also enjoy these!
Usually I love anything with the words Limited Edition because it hopefully indicates something new and a bit different, but in this case I hope this "Seasonal Edition" flavour is here to stay. In the meantime I'll definitely be picking up a few more bags from Waitrose.
