CRISPS, tho'

I love crisps but hardly ever eat them. Not sure why.

I read somewhere that prawn cocktail crisps get their flavour from some phosphorus compound! Isn't that wonderful?

Worcester sauce crisps are my favourite.

You can talk about Doritos and Wotsits and all of those things too if you want.

They don't even sell crisps anymore

These days, if you buy crisps you get arrested and thrown in jail.

Prawn cocktail crisps. Worcester Sauce Crisps. Doritos. Three of my least favourite things on earth. Wotsits are okay though.

I eat crisps every single day. Seabrook cheese and onion are the best but I haven't got any at the moment so have had some Walkers. A bag of cheese and onion and a bag of salt and vinegar. Eaten at the same time but not together. That's just silly.

What's the definition of a crisp?

Pizza Hut do these now:



Like completely half arsed nachos.

What's silly is how they got the colours mixed up. GREEN for cheese and onion, BLUE for salt and vinegar, as every schoolboy knows. But not Walkers, oh no. Fucking arseholes.

An extremely crispy thin potato slice in a bag.

THE ARROGANCE OF WALKERS

I had some Walkers Extreme Paprika crisps today. They were alright but not great. I'm fond of the onion ring and the cheese poof, any crisp or corn snack really. Except maybe pickled onion corn snacks which I'm not mad about but will eat if there's no other option.

I did an extensive post about that self same subject a few years ago incorporating many pictures of salt 'n' vinegar bags of all varieties, all blue of course. Blue is the colour of salt 'n' vinegar.

Just one per bag?

What have I been eating, then?

biggytitbo

If it's only one crisp then I'd expect it to be extremely large to compensate.

To compensate for what?

I really do miss this long discontinued flavour of Wotsits.



The 1970's swimming pool vending machine maize based snack of choice.
Like all old skool, Wotsits, if you were lucky, you'd have purchased a mutant packet with those great, moist, glowing gobules of pure concentrated MSG at the bottom of the bag. Like chewing on a damp OXO cube. Bliss. Wouldn't get that with the new *spit* baked recipe.

You can have that for the next tour, Peter.

Compensate for the fact I only have one crisp, Ken.

It's logical, isn't it? The sheer fuckin balls on Walkers!

YEEEESSSSSS

and remember those potato puffs, or whatever they were called? Burtons, or something. Except they weren't really puffs, more like short tubes. But really nice. Especially the beef ones.

I agree totally. But what can I do? And you get Walkers everywhere nowadays. When I was a kid you couldn't get them in Scotland or Cumbria where I lived before moving to Yorkshire. I bought some Golden Wonder cheese and onion last week though. Green bag. As it should be.

Nonsense. Rancheros were THE after-swim snack. They sure taste like bacon.

Dr Rock

I can't remember who it was, but someone did a short film or something trying to get someone from Walkers to explain why they had the brass neck to have their salt 'n' vinegar crisps in a green bag while everyone else agreed blue was appropriate, and do you know what the man from Walker's said? Nothing, he just ran him over in a big posh car!!

amnesiac

tell you what though the state of McCoys these days! I remember when they used to be thick! THICK AS A MAN COCK now they're these horrible weedy girl crisp thanks to the Euro! NO THANK YOU CAMERON

Cumbria, eh? Where in Cumbria?

poo

One of the best things I did was wrap my foreskin around a wotsit so it was holding the wotsit and walk into a room where my mates were with my cock out and say would anyone like a crisp. We still laugh about that now we do, me and the lads.

Gulftastic

Straight cut Seabrooks cheese 'n' onion were the daddy. Especially when they didn't have foil bags like Walkers, presumably to keep costs down. They used to pretend it was for other reasons by putting 'SEE WHAT YOU ARE BUYING!' on the packet.

Also, in my teen years, I was a big fan of 'Wheelz', especially the 'mexican spice' flavour. Massive bags. I used to buy one nearly every dinner time.

Tyrrell's mixed root vegetable crisps are nice but a waste of money.

Is my thought on crisps.

If you don't use your crisps as umbrellas why would a massive one be good.

What gets me is that there are people posting on this very forum who aren't even old enough to remember crisp packets with real plastic windows.  They've only ever known foil wrappers.

I'm blaming youth but they're most likely stupid as well.
