In the world of a jobless crisp reviewer there are two types of crisps: the ones with generic flavours in big bags and the ones with exceptional flavours in mini bags. Exceptionally flavoured crisps in big bags are about as rare as a brown speckled wood hyena.
But these vegan, gluten free, in a kettle handcooked crisps are part of the latter group. A friend of mine brought them to me straight from a German shop. Therefor I cannot tell you what they may have costed but let us presume that just like all things vegan, handmade and gluten free it costs about as much as the virginity of your first born daughter.
While opening up the bag the smell is sour, but the good kind of sour. The smell reminds me of a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, tasty stuff.
The crunch is… well, different. The texture of these crisps is a little oily and although the crisp is crunchy, it does not crack in the normal sense of the word. The crisp seems to bounce and you have to chew with force to get the normal crunch sound.
The taste is grand and the chili is nice and spicy like a good curry. At first the tangy lime takes over in a pleasant and fresh way. However, midway into the bag salt takes over and not in a good way. But the this is a tasty crisp nonetheless. The germans can be proud of themselves.
