Tyrrell's Cider Vinegar & Sea Salt Potato Chips

I went to Wholefoods a couple of days ago and stumbled upon these chips. I'm a HUGE fan of Salt n Vinegar Chips so these were a unique find indeed. Whoever heard of Cider Vinegar & Sea Salt chips?! Here's the bag below (scanned it after I've finished eating them!) Thanks for the tip Jenny! ^_^

These Chips are made in Herefordshire (UK)!

Ingredients: Potato, Sunflower Oil, Sea Salt & Vinegar Flavour (maltodextrin, potato starch, sea salt, cider vinegar powder, malt vinegar powder, sugar, lemon powder, yeast extract).

Serving size: 1 oz, servings per container about 5

No artificial or GM Products, suitable for vegans, gluten free, trans fat free!! Not too shabby at all, these are definitely more healthier than other leading brands.

MJ's Review on Taste:
These were definitely a little more sweeter than I liked them to be. A very mild vinegary flavor with a decent amount of crunch to which you really couldn't taste unless you placed the chip directly on the tongue. The amount of salt was just enough to bring out some of the flavors from the cider vinegar but it just didn't give the cider vinegar any justice. Halfway through the bag, the vinegar flavor diminished and tasted slightly greasy. But overall, it was enjoyable, tasted more like regular crisp chips with a little kick of cider vinegar added. If you're looking for a big kick of vinegar, these are definitely not one of them. Ratings: 5 out of 10.
