Brannigans Crisps RIP
« on: September 22, 2020, 03:37:59 PM »
With a craving for Brannigans crisps in mind, which have been appearing in various corner shops and supermarkets up until very recently, I emailed KP directly and received the following reply:



As small a sadness as this is in the current climate, it is yet another FFS in relation to my memories of taste bliss.

pubs seemed to insist on stocking fucking mccoys instead, or pretentious 'hen and truffle' artisan crisps or wasabi peas .

Were these the mustard bastards?  Hard crisps, mean crisps.  Not crisps for the average journeyman but intended for the snack pro.

Fuck this country. Why are we so embarrassed by our vast variety of strongly flavoured crisps? Cunts coming back from their holidays "did you know they only do two flavours over there - plain and paprika?" "what, just paprika?" "yeah mental eh" Hope these people are satisfied now.

Their lamb and mint sauce crisps were one of the most disgusting things I've ever tasted, and I've normally a lot of time for shitty junk food.

I used to get Tesco value ready salted crisps in my packed lunch box. They just went straight in the bin every day. Be glad you've had your brannigans.

Not as sad about this as I once would have been.  No way - NO WAY - did the "rebooted" Brannigans taste the same as the originals.  The original roast beef and mustard were HOT as fuck, but the newer ones were lame in comparison.  Just backs up my great potato crisp conspiracy theory - bring out a new make or flavour, smack it up big with strong flavour that leaves blisters on the roof of your mouth, and then spend the next few years reducing the flavour a la Harry Hill's mash spoon on the way down.  There are exceptions (Co Op chardonnay vinegar and salt, a couple of Tesco Finest for example), but otherwise it's FACT.  Exhibit A is Kettle Chips salt and balsamic vinegar - hurt your mouth to eat them not so long ago.  Pretty much ready salted now.

Fortunately the cheapo corn snacks are on hand to give us that consistent flavour punch we deserve.

I love those Co Op Chardonnay Vinegar and Salt crisps and I'm with you on that they're one of the few with a decent strong taste, the majority of others are quite piss poor.

Same here. Plus they go through phases of doing a bag for £1.70 or 2 for £2. Deadly.

Presumably smokies or bush meat.

Two big size bags of those in one go will strip the lining from your mouth and tongue.  WHICH IS EXACTLY HOW IT SHOULD BE!!!!!!!!

Last crisps to take my face clean off were from the bar of a Holiday Inn [desolation]. If anyone knows the brand please let me know so I can avoid them in future.

Those jalapeno pretzel pieces are good for making your todds quick. Give them a wide berth.

Had some of those at the weekend because they were included in a gift box of Hitachino Nest ales I got as a thoughtful birthday gift. I can't recall any ill effects. They were coated in a decent quantity of spicy flavour dust, would have them again.

Mr Jam ordered a box of beers which came with some snacks, including a packet of Scampi Fries. We didn't dare open them in the house. I did briefly consider opening them before posting them through the letterbox of a certain local business run by a complete bell before realising this would probably be a breach of The Geneva Convention.

I like my hot crisps but these are just absurd.

If anyone can finish a bag on their own in one go no fucking about I'll give them a blowjob.
