Kettle Veg Chips Honey and Black Pepper Flavour (Waitrose)
These new Veg Chips from Kettle seem familiar to me. When I read what the vegetables were they immediately rang a bell. Sweet Potato, Beetroot, and Parsnip chips were also used in the vegetables for the slightly salty Kettle chips I reviewed back in November. They have now added Honey and Black Pepper as flavouring. On opening the packet there was a slightly sweet and black peppery smell mixed in with the baked vegetable crisps. The parsnip crisps, beetroot crisps and sweet potato crisps looked pretty much the same as the last packet I had, but I could see light sprinklings of pepper on the crisps, mainly the parsnip and sweet potato crisps, as the beetroot were very dark purple. On taste they were pretty much the same as the last vegetable crisps I had. Of course there was more of a honey sweet and mild black pepper taste to the parsnip crisps and the sweet potato crisps, mainly to the parsnip crisps though. The beetroot crisps tasted pretty much the same as before, as they already tasted a little peppery by beetroot's very nature. These were still very tasty and healthy feeling crisps, but with a slightly, and I mean slightly, different taste than the previous lightly salted version.
