A simple new flavour from Kettle Chips - Sea Salt with a Hint of Citrus Lemon. There is also a Sea Salt with a Hint of Rosemary version available. These are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and are free from artificial ingredients or flavourings.
As soon as I popped open the packaging I could appreciate the lemony aroma of the crisps, it's initially quite a strong, but it marries well with the familiar hand cooked Kettle Chips scent. The flavour however, was exactly as the name of the flavour implies... with a hint of citrus lemon. It's impossible not to appreciate the simplicity of Sea Salted Kettle Chips, they're so crunchy and satisfying. The addition of lemon gives these Sea Salt crisps a background citrus flavour, with a subtle tanginess and sharpness, that is like having a much lighter version of a classic salt & vinegar combination. The seasoning could occasionally be uneven throughout the packet, with some crisps barely having a hint of lemon at all and others being very lemony. I actually preferred the stronger flavoured ones and even though I'd quite like to see this as a straight up Sea Salt & Lemon version, I can appreciate that it's nice to have a lighter seasoned Kettle Chips flavour to tuck into once in a while too!
RATING: 8 out of 10.
Buy them again?: I'll definitely try the Rosemary version too.
