Shoulders?-Stomach!

Quote from: pancreasScampi fries taste a bit like rotten prawns mixed with genital discharge and salt. They're really great.

New recommendation



Oho! Lentil Chips, Jalapeno + Lime

Genuine heat for a change but not the crap Cofresh heat, actual layered heat that stands up to snacking, meanwhile the lime always there adding just the right edge.

The texture is really satisfying as well, lentils have been reforged into a sort of sturdy Wotsit-esque weevil, but with more crunch and less clag.

But for the cruelty of the corporate behemoths, this would be the IN THING FOR 2021

The new spicy pringles range aren't bad, although not all that much difference between medium/hot/megahot. Chilli and cheese probably the best.

Unfortunately chilli+lime is my least favourite snack flavour, so it's an ONo! from me.

Dirtiest crisp flavour -Lemon and Scampi Nik Naks. Honkingly fishy with an overtone of zing. They make me feel like a bad widdle boy

used to love lennon and mccartney themed jacobs crackers that they used to do in fish and chips bars in the 80s, until they stopped doing them because bros became popular instead

Singapore has these stupidly tasty fish skin crisps. Nothing really comes close once you've tried them. Probably a good thing you can only import them for silly money in the UK

They look appetising, at least.

They do a spicy version as well, if it helps.

I have dreamed about owning a packet of those.

If Shoulders is allowed deep-fried lentils in their pods, I feel safe to add these:


They taste exactly like oyster mushrooms but only about a quarter as much. And that's all.

The addition of some salt or soy or something to replace the umami they've managed to extract would definitely improve them. It's as if they've soaked them long enough to extract all the flavour thay can then dried them then cooked them in the way they do with assorted veg these days so they're puffy and crunchy but not oily. So no salt, no sugar, no fat, no umami - no wonder they leave you dissatisfied.

My cousin used to live over there and he brought some back once; they're every bit as good as you'd imagine, but sadly, I haven't even seen them in the Asian supermarkets I normally buy weird snacks in.

Lentil, mushroom and fish skin crisps? This is just getting silly now. Stop it.

I'm not sure I could cope with those but definitely want to find out

Sebastian Cobb

Haven't tried but a mate said his local does these...



Nothing you couldn't assemble yourself with a jar of pickled onions and some jacobs crackers but I like the utility of it.

I don't see any Branston pickle there.

Crackers will be all soggy from the onion juice, 0/10.

I asked how this worked and apparently they put the onions in a bag inside the bag.

I used to love these! These used to be really prevalent but the last time I saw them in Sheffield was in the Roebuck Tavern about eight years ago, never seen them since! The cheese triangle is either made by Kerrygold or a brand you've never heard of. In some you'd get a little wooden spatula to spread out the cheese.

Really no need to bump a four-year-old thread about crisps instead of just starting a new one.

True this.  The crisps at the start of that thread were making me a bit nauseous from how old they are.

I know it'll be considered gauche, but Walkers Max Strong Jalapeño and Cheese really are great. They're horrible, which of course makes them great as, quite clearly, the more objectionable and unfoodlike a crisp is, the better it is. Everyone I know hates them, which only strengthens my resolve. Absolute shit heaven.

Rarely is snackfood so pungently steeped in taint sweat and general gooch.

Ripe groins on the turn have nothing on those shards of stinking shit. Hope my internal organs have to be studied on an AIDS ward.
