Tayto Causeway Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper Handcooked Crisps
I've reviewed three flavours in the Tayto Handcooked crisp range (see below for links to the other reviews) so far, and today I have the fourth and final flavour; Causeway Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper. These crisps are produced in Northern Ireland, in a factory set in the Tayto Castle grounds. It's a beautiful setting that certainly produces some fantastic potato crisps. The ones I've tried so far from this range have all been of an excellent high quality with delicious flavours. As a fan of black pepper flavoured crisps I couldn't wait to give these a try.
The crisps are all a lovely golden colouring and have that distinctive "handcooked" appearance. They are liberally covered in seasoning, with plenty of visible black pepper granules on each crisp. The overall texture of the crisps is excellent too, very crunchy and quite thick, without any oiliness.
I loved the flavour in these! It's a really intense black pepper that's full of flavour and a little residual heat too. There is also quite a lot of the sea salt seasoning, to give these a delicious salt and pepper balance. I love the fact that Tayto don't hold back on their seasonings, the flavours never disappoint and always live up to their descriptions. A fantastic crisp for any fans of black pepper!
Tayto kindly sent me this product for an honest review but all views expressed are my own.
