Jackson's Roast Beef & Horseradish Hand Cooked Crisps (Aldi) [By @SpectreUK]
I love beef and steak flavoured crisps. I've blogged about several different brands in the past and always get excited when I see another. I liked the Union Jack flag on the front of the packet of these Jackson's Roast Beef & Horseradish Hand Cooked Crisps. I shan't do the joke about baking with hot hands, as it drives Cinabar nuts! The flag on the packet made me think of traditional Sunday dinners of Roast Beef, Horseradish, Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes, lashings of gravy and a variety of greens. Mmm... Sounds great to me, but it's Wednesday, so I'll have to settle for these crisps. On opening the packet there was a good strong roast beef smell with a hint of Horseradish. No greens or gravy here, but none promised on the packet. This wasn't Sunday dinner crisp flavour after all! The orange brown coloured crisps had a hearty crunch with an immediate kick of Horseradish followed by roast beef, which was a bit of a surprise at first, as I was expecting a more dominant roast beef flavour first followed by the other. The Horseradish kick was a lovely tongue tingling wake me up. The following roast beef flavour finished the crispy taste off perfectly. A genius crisp flavour perfect for dunking in salad cream on a mid week afternoon whilst I wait for Sunday! If only they came in smaller bags as they're just too good for sharing! ;-)
