Super crunchy, great tasting but needs heavier seasoning (CAMEMBERT & FIG)
Camembert & Fig chips feel very satisfying to bite into, the crunch is strong and fresh (whereas Smith's is stale and greasy). Flavour tastes different and better than the standard salted, chicken, and bbq. They really need to spray the chips twice over with the seasoning though, a lot of the chips weren't even flavoured unfortunately. If they were adequately seasoned, they would be a perfect bag of chips!
Camembert & Fig
Just bought a bag today, not knowing what to expect. I liked Camembert so I bought them. Eating them they had a unique taste. More fig than camembert, you cant taste it unless you focus. The chips have a unique sweetness to them but are still savoury. I find the more you eat the more you like them, currently eating some while writing.
Kettle Sea Salt and Vinegar
Delicious crunchy chips, that have a self imposed portion control. I love the kettle sea salt and vinegar chips but find that I cannot eat more than a few as my tongue starts to burn after eating them. The flavour is really strong, just the way I like it. The chips are a thicker cut which is excellent and I have never had a greasy one.
If Kettle could develop the same flavour intensity without the tongue burn then these would be perfect.
Yummy but something missing
I have recently bought a number of packets of sweet potato, beetroot and white sweet potato chips. They are delicious BUT there are only about 4 beetroot chips in the packet. Don't put beetroot second in the title when they are missing. They are the best flavor too. C'mon Kettle, lift your game.
Very few beetroot chips.
Thanks for bringing the chilli back!
So yes Kettle finally brings back chilli flavour after a long painful drought. But is it all a coincidence? Kettle chip company claims they care about consumers but many have petitioned to bring it back for years and they now it's finally here a couple months after their rival Red Rock. We also asked to make it hotter as the mildness of the chilli kind of defeats the purpose of calling it 'chilli'. Why do they need 2 or 3 chilli flavours that are all the same heat rating? I mean doesn't sweet chilli get your mild chilli eaters? Why is it so har...d just to make at least one of your chilli flavours extra hot? So please Kettle if you're reading this 'LISTEN' to your customers and give them what they really want. Change the chilli chips for the better and make it HOT! crunchier chips not hot enough
Kettle chips are a favourite snack food in our house. They come in a variety of flavours so there is something for everyone to choose from. They are always very fresh and crunchy which we like in a potato chip. They are easily available in most supermarkets and convenience stores. We tend to stock up on them when they are on sale as they can be a little hard on the budget otherwise.
They are said to be healthier than other brands of potato chips which is always a good thing for the waistline. Bottom line is they taste great and we enjoy them.
tasty, good quality product
can be expensive unless you get them on special
Questions & Answers
Liked hunter valley chicken favoured chips, made by your company a few years ago but suddenly dissapeared from shops shelves,only to be upset not find them anymore. Are you thinking to make and to return them for sale in the future? If sale so I'll be very happy once again to buy your product.
Hello - why can't I buy the lime kettle chips anywhere??? None of the Woolworths Stores have them nor do the IGS's here in WA. Can you please post us some? We are of course, happy to pay whatever it costs!!! My husband is fanging for some!!!
Hi Colleen, like yourselves I too am hanging for them but unfortunately they are discontinued :( I emailed the company that supplies them, Snackfoods & they replied by letting me know that, that flavor will not be made anymore as it was a poor selling line.
I even suggested that perhaps they should do sampling in supermarkets as I work in one, I know it could help increase sales or even suggested giving out sample packs to customers.
But it's a no win situation, they are simply not continuing with that flavor. So our last hope is to get a heap of us & keep complaining until they bring that flavor back like they did the Chilli flavor.
Have you tried the Smiths Grainwave in that chilli lime flavor by any chance?
I don't think I've seen them around lately, unless Coles or franklins have them, they might have been deleted & no longer avalable. Maybe contact kettle chips themselves ,details should be on the pack. Maybe they can help. Good luck
Hi D - thanks for your answer. My husband does not like the grain waves.....he is fussy!!! I can get the lime ones in another brand at out local Woolies (safeway for you Easterners!) but he doesn't like those either!!! I guess he will have to change his taste!! If I happen to come across some 'left over' stock I will be sure & grab the lot!!!!
