It's the mint part that I find most disturbing, though that is because I'm 100% correct in the assertion that mint in savoury dishes is an abomination.

Alright then clever clogs is toothpaste a main course or a dessert

I tired them the other day. Was quite intrigued but didn't really hit the spot for me.

I also got these which were decent:


I’ll have a look out for those but reckon I’ll need to try a bigger Co-Op than the cupboard sized one next to me!

Picked up a big bag of these earlier. Not tried them yet but reckon they'll be nice.

Those naan chips are tasty but quite hard work on the teeth after a few.

I noticed that Walkers had some new flavours on promotion, in place of the bland Hot Dog and Chicken Tikka ones promoted during the football.



I didn't see the Madras, sadly, will need to keep an eye out, so got the Thai Green Chilli ones and they're almost nice, but a bit unusual, they taste quite creamy, there's a hint of something curry like and a bit of chicken crisp flavouring. Would eat again.

The Chicken Burrito I'm expecting to be very similar to Roast Chicken. And well, fish and chip flavour snacks are nothing new and usually a bit crap.

The madras was shit. Just the usual weak bog standard 'tikka masala' flavour.

Aldi do their own carbon copy version of walker's sensations, they're called "perfections".

Chicken and Thyme..absolutely the closest thing to the best crisp ever.

80p a bag, bargain.

What is the true arse-blasting, mouth-wrecking salt and vinegar crisp out there? I've always been quite keen on Squares, as they can be deceptively arse-blasting. It's not Coop, they're just relatively strong.

Those fish and chips crisps must be the worst.  An unmitigated whirl of “grease” flavouring.

You’d have to go back to childhood, I think.  There were those chipsticks things that had plenty of salt and vinegar careening through them in the early 90s, but nowadays they’re like toothpaste.  I suspect the same goes for Discos.

Found those lamb and mint Seabrooks in my local Sainsburys as they have expanded their crisp selection dramatically after getting rid of their fresh counters.

Yeah, not bad. They taste like a mild mix of roast beef, prawn cocktail and salt and vinegar flavours, but not as hideous as that looks written down. Not sure I'd go out of my way to buy them again over other crisps, but I wouldn't run screaming from a bag if it were offered.

Why does lamb and mint have even a hint of prawn cocktail in it?  If that's the case you are in no position at all to be saying "not bad".

Chipsticks are still salt and vinegary but it's a very "yer dad's flavor" sort of salt and vinegar; the kind that's scented to seem like a magnum round to the mouth but in reality it's just a very middle of the road taste for a clapped out old geezer.

Supermarket own-brand crisps used to be good for really OTT salt and vinegar flavours. Probably not any more, Lidl's are no great shakes.

Found an Ebay seller that sells salt and vinegar seasoning in kilo tubs though so might take matters into my own hands.

Really enjoying those Hairy Burger Bikers or whatever they are called. Not bad at £1.30 a bag either. Remind me of those Morrisons ridged Steak & (i think) ale one's from their finest range or whatever.

And surely the strongest S&V flavour ones were the Discos with the bomb sachet in them from years back.

Discos are the strongest I've encountered. Golden Wonder salt and vinegar are possibly around the level of the Co-op ones.

I quite liked the Chip Shop ones, a bit Lemony.

Live testing of Seabrook's Cream Cheese & Chive Crinkle Cut



Pretty much like all cream cheese & chive crisps, lacking something. Cheese & onion will always be the winner in that fight.
