6 crisps in 6 days: #1 - Duck in Hoisin Sauce

I've got some packets of the new flavours of crisps from Walkers. They're have a vote on which one should join their regular stable and although I'm not interested in that, I would like to see how close they get to the actual flavours.

So first up is Duck in Hoisin Sauce. The smell is very meaty, possibly a bit too yeasty but not unpleasant. I give a crisp to chilledchimp. She's no fan of Duck but she's joining in. We both try some and, you know, that's pretty close. It's not what you'd call a good Duck but it's definitely duck and there are quite strong undertones of onion, possibly a bit too sharp, and there's the sweet almost smoky flavour of the hoisin sauce. There's even the slight greasiness that you get with duck.

So, all in all, I'm pretty impressed. I don't think I'd eat them again but it's a very good try.
