I've been on the lookout for the other festive flavours of Kettle Chips, which are both revitalised older flavours. Thankfully, I found this one in Tesco for just one pound, but unfortunately the better sounding Stilton & Port has been sold out for a while. But hey, salsa is pretty good, and mesquite is... a flavour, one that I hadn't heard of before. But hey, bottoms up.
The salsa is certainly noticeable in these chips. It's a bold, saucy flavour with a hint of spice, and the mesquite adds a nice bit of sweetness. But it's all a bit subdued, certainly not as flavoursome as other varieties. There's nothing really wrong with these, but they're definitely not fantastic, nor particularly festive. These are certainly some nice chips that will give you a nice warm feeling, but if you're looking for spicy there are more effective ones out there.
My rating: 4/5
