Today's Review: Tesco Finest Barbecue Pulled Pork Crisps

I reviewed the pretty tasty Tesco Finest shrimp crisps yesterday, but I picked up this flavour at the same time. It didn't seem quite as novel as the shrimp ones, but I can't resist pulled pork, and that's what this bag offers. Slow cooked pork in a tangy barbeque sauce. Wait, Tesco, which is it? Barbecue? Barbeque? Why not just stick with BBQ, or is that not fancy enough?

Whichever way you want to spell it, the barbecue element in these crisps is apparent, it's a nice smoky flavour that's very moreish, it definitely has a tang to it, and I sensed a nice little bit of stickiness as well. As for the pork, though, I feel it's under-represented. There's a hint of meatiness in here, and it's not bad at all, but the barbecue takes the forefront and overwhelms the rest. I'm not too mad, I'm not fond of meat flavours in crisps, and the barbecue part tastes good, but these do fall a bit flat on their promise of delivering pulled pork. Kinda disappointing, but not a particularly bad bag of crisps.

My rating: 3/5
