I shared this packet with a friend who was keen to try them for herself - she had heard about them already and is a great fan of anything containing garlic, so she put her hand up immediately to help me review them. She already had some ideas on how we could serve them, and I was happy to go along with her as her ideas are usually pretty good.

Her first comment was on the packaging. She loves packs that are resealable as, like me, she travels a lot and likes to have no-fuss openers. There is nothing worse than having to fight with a difficult seal only to have it burst open and scatter the contents everywhere. Worse still are those packets that have an arrow with a "tear here" notice but neglect to tell you the slit is non-existent so you just end up attacking them with the scissors anyway. The tear strip on these packs is really easy and the reclose function is sturdy and easy to use.

Then we sniffed the contents. I always do this as I want to get a first impression of the product inside, but she thought this was rather strange. However, she followed suit and reported back that there was a definite whiff of garlic although it was not quite as strong as she had anticipated. Then came the first taste test. The crisps were very nice, lighter than we expected from a rice product, and much more garlicky than the sniff test had suggested.

We then divided the contents into three. The first portion was to be served with an off the shelf feta and spinach dip with some small pieces of smoked salmon stirred through. This combination was utterly delicious although the garlic was slightly lost to the feta; there was some competition for flavour. I quite liked the mix, but after we had tried several crisps dipped in it we thought there was room for improvement. Probably a less highly flavoured dip might have been better.

We had the second portion with a mug of home made chilled pumpkin soup with a blob of cream. This was a lovely choice and one we would have again. The crisps were served on a separate plate, but both of us tried dunking a couple and agreed that this was a great way to have them, slightly messy and very decadent! Best not eaten in polite company however as they tend to drip. Possibly a good choice for a beach picnic with the soup travelling in a chilly bin to keep it cold.

Finally, the best of all. Inspired by the devils on horseback idea, my friend used the larger pieces of salmon to wrap around the crisps; this was served with a small glass of port. I would not have thought of doing this, but it worked really well and they were so quick and easy to prepare. The crisps on their own are not especially attractive to look at - in fact, if I were serving them plain, I might be tempted to set them out in a pattern on the plate so that they would draw the eye. But with the salmon they looked superb. Another idea to file away for entertaining purposes, and another food I will certainly be purchasing again..
