I've never seen the pickled onion ones but they look amazing. Haggis is a good flavour too - just the right amount of spice, and if you want something a bit stronger, scotch bonnet are nice too. Sadly, they're not too easy to find here, but there is one shop that has a decent range of flavours, alongside a very good beer selection (a winning combo). It's also the only place that consistently sells jalapeño flavoured pretzel pieces.

Yeah Aldi sell them, well I bought some Aberdeen Angus ones, I say ones because to use the term 'flavour' would be incorrect as they had no trace of flavourings, plain crisps in a brown bag?  Sort your bloody act out Mackies.

They save the beef flavour for their ice cream.[1]
 1. No they don't, it's quite nice actually.

I've enjoyed Mackies in the past, plain and mature cheddar and onion to be precise. Lidl did the mega bags but as with many things at Lidl they suddenly disappeared.

Never heard of the pickled onion variety though.

I've been going back to basics recently and buying plain Walkers. Solid all-rounder.

Disappointed to read that as I was poised to explore the other flavours. Suffice to say, the pickled onion article above is pretty sharp and pickley.

Well it's clearly a deliberate ploy, reminiscent of the Mediterraneans sending out their lower tier olives and cheese, this is the Scottish sending south their factory floor sweepings. And I live in Leicestershire the world crisp county, this is a declaration of snack war.

In Aldi they are on the LOL Random aisle, with the jumble sale offerings.

I wish McCoy's chargrilled chicken crisps were more common. I can never find the fuckers anywhere.

I like them wholewheat posho crisps from M&S they are a bit like Wheatos (but flat and curly)

My other half calls then SHLCs - Suspiciously Healthy Looking Crisps, I've told her it's not catching on, not sure if they are or not with the layers of MSG all over them.


anyway them. alright bye.

I bought a pack of Walkers Sensations balsamic vinegar & caramelised onion (*new recipe) the other week because they were half price. Those were really nice and quite pickled-oniony. I went back to get more a couple of days later and the shelf was bare. Word travels fast.

Crisps. But you buy them frozen and cook in your own oven!



They are doing Space Raiders too but not sure if a corn snack will translate into a potato form:



Only from Iceland. What a time to be alive.

Tomato was the only other flavour on sale, and well I have too much self respect to buy that filth, although they are probably just plain flavour in a red packet which makes sense for crisp rules.
The tomato flavour are a variation of "spice" flavour. Quite nice actually.

Pretty fucking tasty. Each poppadom is sprayed with an almost obnoxious mangoey paint. First you get citrus, then fruit, then spice, then a surprisingly wholemealy cereal grounds the whole thing nicely.

Basically if you gave 1 packet to 2 teenage brothers one will have been stabbed to death before the packet is finished, and not a jury in the land would convict.

I had these recently and they were great. I'm a life long hater of salt 'n vinegar so I'm surprised I liked them so much. I recoiled when I first opened the packet.

I'm actually ashamed to say I've missed the Cherry Blossom Lays and Cucumber Pringles, but they will back in my life upon my return to China next month. Those pickled plum things don't sound good on paper.

I bought some of the Space Raiders. The beef ones are quite nice and flavoursome, kind of like they've been dipped in beef dripping. Pickled onion I'm not so keen on. It does taste similar to the crisp flavour, but doesn't mesh well with potato.
Haven't tried Hula Hoops.

Yes, I think there have been several posts, usually noting their ability to take your face clean off.

The only thing I've truly missed about the UK since moving to Amsterdam in October is those Co-op bad boys, so imagine my delight when I found out that they were stocked in the British expat store. I felt like such a gammon even going into the place, but my god was it worth it for that tongue stripping vinegar savagery.
