The team at Burt’s Chips sent me a couple of packets of their Guinness Toasted Cheddar flavour crisps recently. I’m always willing to try new flavours of crisps even though I usually try to play it safe, my favourite flavours being salt & vinegar and prawn cocktail. These crisps looked serious from the packaging to the flavour itself, you get the feeling that you’re in for something more than just the ordinary. I am not a fan of Guinness but I do love cheese so I was hoping that I would be in for a real treat with these crisps.
Alas they were just too strong for me, the cheese combined with the Guinness made for an over powering taste sensation that even I couldn’t handle! The crisps were thick and great quality which is reflected by the fact that the flavour was so intense on each crisp. However these aren’t for me but if you want to try a new flavour I would say give this a try but be prepared for a taste sensation. You’ll ever love them or you won’t, there’s no in-between here.
