Wagyu Dripping Roast Potato Flavour Crisps (Aldi) By @Cinabar

Wagyu Dripping Roast Potato Flavour Crisps (Aldi)

I’m still on the search for new seasonal Christmas flavours for crisps. There have been some good ones this year; these are the first I've had in a sharing bag. These new Wagyu Dripping Roast Potato Flavour Crisps are from Aldi’s Specially Selected range and are posh crisps for sharing on special occasions. I love meaty-flavoured crisps, so to be honest, they had me at Wagyu beef.

I opened up the bag and inhaled the aroma. It was a little disappointing. There wasn’t much to smell. We shared them out anyway to go with lunch. The crisps are crinkle-cut to hold more seasoning and are fairly thick-cut but aren’t too hard. There is a belief that the posher the crisps, the thicker they need to be, which isn't true at all. I prefer these medium-cut ones and thinner ones to very-thick cut ones. I gave one a try and found it a little lackluster. The taste was ever so mild. These crisps are trying to recreate the flavour of roast potatoes cooked in beef dripping, but they were just so mild. They have a hint of that wagyu, a little bit of rosemary, and seasoning. These Aldi Wagyu Dripping Roast Potato Flavour Crisps were pleasant, not offensive, but not quite what I’d hoped for. Essentially, they are trying to make potato crisps taste like potato, so I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up too much. Marks and Spencer used to make jacket potato flavour crisps that tasted essentially like butter, but they were some of the nicest crisps to ever get discontinued. I guess that is why I was hoping for more.
