'member salt'n'vinegar and prawn cocktail Quavers?



I have never liked prawn cocktail flavour but I 'member the salt'n'vinegar ones of the 1990's being much nicer than the original cheese ones. Tried the new rebooted version but they just tasted wrong, more like plain Quavers. The absence of cheese was conspicuous, like someone at the factory forgot to add it to a batch. I imagine this is because salt'n'vinegar crisps of the 1990's had enough flavour to take the roof off your mouth, something which just can't be replicated now. 'elf and safety innit?

Walkers are limp with flavourings, but get yourself down to the co-op for some Sea Salt and Chardonnay Vinegar big packs, proper acid.

Pleasantly surprised with how good these veggie Richmonds are given how shit normal Richmonds are. Probably the best sausages going in Tesco express, which seems to follow the Scottish cornershop tradition of having a terrible selection of link sausages (always Richmond, some pathetically thin and pale things and the weird beef sausages you get by the people who make breakfast packs).

Yes, these are the absolute fuckest uppest for salt and vinegar. I'm also happy to report Discos are back in business, albeit not to their sinus-shredding form of my youth.

I used to be a whore for the Halls Skinless Sausages. Pink matter held together solely by it's own shame.

Get them in the oven till they puff up and fire 4 or 5 of them onto a buttered Morton's roll. Michelin Star material.

Just had this incredible specimen:

Started getting bang into icecream last few months of lockdown. Pint of the good shit every 2 weeks or so is lovely.

On the Ben and Jerry’s “the tonight dough” just now, the only downside being jimmy fallon’s fucking gurning mug as you get the spoon in.

Nice auld nostalgic dinner, that. Just needs some beans and HP sauce on the side.

I've been getting through a bit of Bombay Mix recently. Cofresh is much better than the awful Asda rubbish. Also been eating some of these India's Magic Masala crisps, which are lovely.

Cofresh are the dogs bollocks,any of the lemon and chilli offerings especially. I don't know about other areas but back in my home town Leicester where the company is based the Cofresh sections are a real show of force.

You get so much for your money too - a nice big bag for just under £1. I honestly can't complain.

They look tempting,I'll need to keep an eye out, with the lays/blue packaging I'd have dismissed them as cheese and onion.

I like some of the unusual snacks you can get in spice shops. Some do salted banana chips that taste the same as crisps.

Been fucking demolishing wasabi peas recently. The bridge of my nose has really been suffering for it but I don’t care. I honestly think it might be the greatest flavour ever.

Aldi have upped their game with their Cheddars rip-offs. They used to have that really nasty cheap cheese powder taste, but I think now they are better than the authentic ones.

Is there anything less appetising sounding than "gobs" of cookie dough? Coupled with the Fallon face on the tub, it makes it sound as if it's come pre-masticated from Fallon's own gob. Vile

2. With small bits of cookie dough

1. Contains no cookie dough


Edit- this is even allowing for gob not really meaning 'expectorate' locally (america)

It's like in wine tasting notes - "gobs of sweet fruit". Er, no thanks.
