Packet #93 – Lidl’s Deluxe Peri Peri

This is an unusual crisp with an unusual name. Definitely sweet. Definitely spicy. Definitely salty. Definitely potatoey. But there's also something else. Some sort of herb flavour. Maybe basil? Not the usual crisp herb, but a good flavour all the same.

Here's the slightly peculiar flavour profile: The sturdy posh crisp crunch is followed by that mysterious herby sweetness. Then there's the spicy punch, which lingers on the tongue along with a true potato flavour.

This is a posh crisp, but doesn't quite have the same depth of flavour as other posh crisps. Having said that, the bag still kept me coming back for more.

It wouldn't be top of my repurchase list, but if I ran into this crisp at a Ballybough BBQ or a Fairview Park picnic, I would happily indulge in a few handfuls.
