Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kettle Chips Seasonal Edition Wensleydale Cheese and Cranberry Confirmed sighting: Kettle Chips Seasonal Edition Wensleydale Cheese and Cranberry
Posted: 17:21 Wed 14-Dec-2005. Price: About 1.39. Location: Tesco, Alfreton.
"E.W." reports: My last Kettle Chip review of the season as I have now tried all of the seasonal editions. I have to take this moment to say that Flavour Monkey's review of the White Stilton and Apricot flavour was spot on and I agree that the crisps "had a lovely smooth authenticity of White Stilton Cheese, with a background sweetness of apricot". Anyway, the Wensleydale Cheese and Cranberry contain "real Wensleydale" from the "Wensleydale Creamery" in Hawes, North Yorkshire. These crisps are pretty tasty, despite Kettle's constant habit of almost drowning out the flavour of some of their cheese crisps with sea salt, they have managed to sustain a strong and wholesome flavour. The strong Wensleydale taste is complemented by the fruity undertones of the festive cranberry and is aided with the interesting combinations of "Dried Buttermilk", "Dried Honey" and "Dried Sour Cream" - a festive treat that would go down well at a Christmas party (or something for Gromit to distract Wallace with!). Well done to Kettle and the people who voted through the "Seasoning Suggestor" on their website for an interesting display of flavours this season. I'll be back with a review of Crinkle Cut Smokey Barbeque sometime in the near future...

...and at least Kettle Chips have actually bothered to come up with some new varieties, unlike Pringles, who are promoting their current King Kong tie-in with a range of tubes rebranded as (for instance) "Oo Oo Original", "Sour Scream and Onion" and "'Island' Paprika" (clearly running out of ideas by that stage).

Comment: fruit+crisps=right

Must count at least as two of the five-a-day thing - potatoes are vegetables...

Comment: A great product, those guys inventing flavours at Kettle have come up trumps this year, I think!! Stocked up on the White Stilton variety for the Xmas family 'do's' !

Comment: i have tried those wendsleydale and cranberry ones and they were really nice, the name puts you off a bit at first, but when u eat them you'll see that they are actually very good movie munchies!

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 93142 7 36
