Iceland does enough non-frozen stuff that you can get up to £40 on a delivery without too much trouble, however inadequate your freezer is.

They do deliveries, if you ever feel in need of a large amount of frozen foods.

But what would the neighbours think if they saw an Iceland van pull up outside?!

These things are phenomenal, I've only seen them turn up occasionally in corner shops, not in supermarkets

My very posh next door neighbours get Iceland deliveries. Their others are like 'Artisan purveyors of fine meat and cheese since 1756' type places so I think like a lot of posh people they like a bargain or high-end but despise the middle ground.

They'd think, "There's that fella getting his stash in of Space Raiders Pickled Onion Flavour Potato Shapes. What a chap. I should probably offer to go over there later and sit on his face".
That's what they're thinking.

Crisps is a satisfying word to say in a Scottish accent. Almost two syllables: ku rusps.

Hasn't Mr Iceland's son carved out an upmarket vegan thing under the Iceland banner? The Barratt estate lot can just pretend to be lentil munchers if anyone asks questions.

Iceland stuff is great. I had some barbecue chicken wings tonight. Them and Sainsburys kept me alive during lockdown.

Mackie's are presently my crisps of choice but I've only tried the cheese and onion and plain.

I've not seen these let alone tried them. Any good?

I didn't like them. Not a fan of Mackie's crisps, though. Undercooked and cardboardy. Flavour was a bit odd.

Own-brand kettle chips mate


Nothing wrong with that, but it’s what they are.


Very wrong opinion. Salt and vinegar kettle chips are a flaccid travesty compared with these absolutely beautifully brutish mouth-reavers. Different universe, a proper one.

Seabrooks were always absolute compost crisps, but their scorpion chilli ones are incredible. I love a properly spicy crisp - Really Ruthless were great back in the day - and these things will blow your head off. One of the few crisps I’ve had which make you question whether your tongue can take just one more.

When I was last the UK the local B&M used to have them at £1 a bag.

Never heard of cheese and onion and plain before. Is that plain plain, or ready salted plain?

I thought they were rancid, and I love spicy crisps and other snacks. Just bitterness and heat with no flavour. Different strokes etc.

Bitterness and heat with no flavour sums it up, but by god are they hot. I’d love a crisp which had the taste and heat of, say, a Thai curry, but those things hit the spot if you’re after a fuckinell snack.

Bring back Phileas Fogg's Extra Hot Tortilla Chips from 25 years ago, I say. I don't know if you have any clout in the snack world but if you do could you ask your cohorts to get on it, thanks.

Erm, they were "devilishly" hot, actually. Source: I stacked Phileas Fogg crisps on super marker shelves for a month or so in 2003.

Let's talk Monster Munch, specifically Pickled Onion Monster Munch. Bought a packet the other day and they've changed the taste, they're more mellow now, not as tangy as I remember. Anyone else noticed?

Fogg's devilishly hot always seemed like a rariety. Felt like Elvis coming back out for an encore whenever you walked into a common room with a bag of them.

My aunt once lobbed a bag of them of at us when we were sitting around playing nintendo or whatever and I think we reacted like when Oprah bought everyone cars.

The only other snack I can remember getting such a reaction was littlewoods did ridged charcoal grilled steak flavour

Crisps so good they were banned from church (caused a ruckus after a confirmation do because all the adolescents rushed the snack table, I remember a big lad yelling "charcoal steak!" and rushing to hover them in a very appropriate Christ the Redeemer pose. didn't mind because I had two packs at home)
