Kettle Chips Thai Sweet Chilli, Lemongrass & Coriander

Maybe I bought these crisps because the packet is such a fabulous colour. Maybe not. But it certainly is a wonderful lime green. Or more of a lime yellow. Brilliant.

The reluctant taste testers and I were stunned at the freshness of taste you get with these crisps. All too often sweet chilli crisps are simply too sweet. But the lemongrass, and particularly the coriander just give such an unusual fresh taste these crisps are really different.

Also in the mix are garlic, tomato, ginger, galangal, star anise, cumin and oregano. The packet says there are absolutely no artificial ingredients so we have to believe that this flavour is created from all these herbs and spices. It looks like a very complicated recipe, and often complicate recipes don't work as well as their creators hoped, but somehow this is a great success. The crisps smell good too.

Lovely big crisps, richly coloured with a good bite and that lovely fresh chilli flavour. Very nice indeed.

I saved a few crisps at the bottom of the packet and took them home. The Chef really liked them too. So an all round success.
