These Just Crisps Sea Salt and Black Pepper flavour were cooked in cold pressed rapeseed oil, which has 35% less saturated fat than sunflower oil. They were made from home grown potatoes on their Wade Lane Farm in Staffordshire. These crisps were sliced and cooked with their skins left on, so I was expecting a decent crunch. I like my sea salt and black pepper crisps to have a good saltiness and a medium hot spicy black pepper kick that knocks me for six with each mouthful. Having said that, I do like to have a beer with sea salt and black pepper crisps on the odd occasion, although not today, as these crisps were with my lunchtime beef, cucumber and horseradish sandwich. On opening the packet there was a good spicy peppery smell and a light saltiness. On first taste the decent crunch was definitely there, with a good tastiness from the potato mixed in with a light saltiness and a medium peppery kick. Not too overpowering on the pepper front. So perfect for beer that I changed my mind and cracked open a bottle of Kingfisher to wash my lunch down with.
