Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kettle Chips Seasonal Edition Crinkle Cut Blue Stilton and Port Confirmed sighting: Kettle Chips Seasonal Edition Crinkle Cut Blue Stilton and Port
Posted: 22:08 Wed 12-Oct-2005. Price: 1.28. Location: Asda, Sutton-In-Ashfield, Notts. Sub-flavours: Smokey Barbeque, Salt and Vinegar, Lightly Salted, Cheddar Cheese and Spring Onion.
"E.W." reports: Kettle Chips weren't very original with these crisps. Their crinkle cut variety haven't been around that long (as far as I know) but they've taken these and seasoned them with an old flavour from their original crisps. The crinkled crisps (which have a nice crunch to them) have a generous amount of seasoning on each one. The flavour is quite nice, the cheese and the "port" are well balanced but they slightly overdid it on the salt. No particular taste of stilton (which is kind of a relief because stilton has a rather pungent and peculiar taste that may not work on a crisp). You can mainly taste the other cheese they included in the ingredients, "Roquefort". Over all not bad, but nothing special.

..."E.W." seems somewhat underwhelmed by this revival of the Kettle Chips "Blue Stilton" flavour last seen (I believe) around Christmas 2002 - though here adapted to the "Crinkle Cut" format apparently preferred by Asda customers. The Grocer magazine meanwhile reports that fans of full-strength Kettle Chips (with the "CD case" crunch) can try their Wensleydale Cheese and Cranberry variety, possibly capitalising on any mentions of Wensleydale in the new Wallace and Gromit film - though the timing of this is described as a "rare coincidence", as the crisps have been in development "for two years".

Comment: The wensleydale variant was in development for 2 years. Not uncommon in the industry! Also look out for white stilton and apricot, and sundried tomato and sweet red pepper!! The Crinkles are exclusive to Asda BTW.... FM

Comment: For £1.99 there are 250g tubs of Sweet Chilli Mini Cheddars Crinklys in places like Co-op [currently on offer at £3 for any 2 tubs] and Morrisons. Apostrophe fans should note there is now none to be seen in the word 'Crinklys' by the way. If you don't like the Crinklys tubs, also available are tubs of standard Mini Cheddars in Branston Pickle flavour. The Sweet Chilli Crinklys taste suspiciously similar to last years tubs of Wow!ster Sauce Crinkly's by the way.

Comment: What is this Major Cheese Fetish that kettlefoods have got?

Double Gloucester - Mature Cheddar - Wensleydale - White Stilton - Buffalo Mozzarella - Blue Stilton

This is a clear case of Cheese Fetishism

I'm going off this company real fast 41395 8
