Boxer Chips - Honey & English Mustard

Comments:

Boxer Chips Honey & English Mustard Potato Crisps are officially our first review from the amazing selection that our good friend Josh over at Crisp Nation recently sent us all the way from London, England!

As you may or may not be able to tell from the photo above, Boxer Chips have some very cute packaging, with a unique presentation.  The crisps come packaged inside of a little box, that when removed from its colorful wrapping, folds outward into a party presentable, cardboard, serving cup or bowl.

Visually, these crisps look an awfully similar to Tyrrell’s English Crisps – as they both seem to use complete cross-sections of the potato for their crisps.  This is evident by the outer edge of the crisp being encompassed by a darker, purple-ish potato peel ring?  The crisps are definitely on the smaller side.  Turns out, that these crisps don’t only look like Tyrrell’s crisp, but their texture is also very comparable to Tyrrell’s.  These crisps exude such a rough mouth feel, and a tough, dense crunch.  Not our favorite feeling crisps.

However, the flavor of these crisps is quite exceptional.  The sweet (honey), and savory (English mustard), compliment and play off each other very nicely.  First, the honey hits your pallet, and makes you think that these crisps are going to be a bit too sweet, but once the pungent English mustard makes its presence felt, the slightly spicy, nasal burn that very few foods exude (see: mustard seed, horseradish, wasabi…), counters the sweetness and creates a wonderful flavor melody.

We really, really like this flavor, but the potato crisps are a bit too hard and dense for us.  The packaging is cute, clever and unique, but not very convenient for a person on the go!

For another positive review of these crisps check out Crisp Nation take.

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
