Ugh. Pork scratchings are hideous.

 

Also if you want a crisp where you don't care how bad they make you stink, everyone should know that picked onion monster munch are the finest choice. (space raiders are an acceptable substitute if you're on a budget).

ARRIVAL.   They threw ina  free garklic bread too. This is the greatest thing I have ever eaten. Easily. Full now. Going to bed.

“Someone” 

Ever see a foodstuff that looks so spectacularly dreadful you feel compelled to buy it? In Tesco the other day I picked up a "Breakfast wrap" from the frozen section. You get 2 in a packet. Accor

Pork scratters are tremendous. If you get one where you can clearly read the tattoo that was on the pig, that is like finding a copy of Fly Fishing by J R Hartley

 

The problem with the bacon flavoured crisp of any sort is that when you burp for the rest of the day you get a call back to the earlier snack.

 

The king of the prawn flavoured crisp used to be the Prawn Cocktail Skips, the Prawn Cocktail Pom Bear is made by the same parent company, but is a pale imitation of  Skips

The stinkiest crisps of all time were KP cheese & onion. They had a half-life of about 7,000 years, they were terrific. The closest you get these days are Golden Wonder ones but Morrisons and Poundstretcher stopped stocking them near us so I don't even know if they're still making them.

Walkers 'Bitza Pizza' had immense flavouring. Pizza flavour Pringles don't really come close -

I remember my mum buying a multipack of 'Flavour & Shake' (like salt & shake but the blue sachet contained pure E numbers). Most of the Ketchup flavour stuck to one crisp, an intense experience for a young child.

I remember a short run of other flavored skips when I was a kid that I really enjoyed. Can't remember what they were other than that one was spare rib flavoured, and those were great.

I remember the rib and a curry one. Salt and Vinegar were top draw!

They do! A staple in my local Home Bargains at 19p a bag or a 6 pack for £1. Bacon I have seen recently, didnt look for others as the only two flavors to buy are those and the pickled onion ones which were amazing. flavour was like Monster Munch but on drugs.

Might nip in B&M in Gorton on Friday and have a look. I do like the bacon ones as well but I agree most bacon flavoured crisps and snacks are shit. Walkers ones are especially piss-poor.

Bacon flavour crisps are second only to chicken in the potato based disappointment stakes.

False.

 

 

False is an understatement, that's downright slander right there. Frazzles are in the high echelon of snacks. And the greatest crisps ever made, which sadly are no longer available (save from the odd vending machine in Halfords), are bacon flavour Crunchy Fries.

I never had school lunch from years 8-10 at school, because I would spunk all of my lunch money on these and cans of Dr Pepper on the way to school every morning.

Chicken Crisps really smell rotten, i've always got an instant opinion of somebody if i see/smell them eating them without knowing them, Povo.

 

Definitely not povo:

I'd agree most chicken crisps are poor (i eat them first in a multipack to get them out of the way). But these are most certainly the exception to that rule. Also a big fan of the Chinese crackers they do in the same range

I mentioned Walkers' Cheeseburger-flavour deep ridged crisps many pages ago in the thread, and I still stand by them as being one of the best flavours ever.

 

As to the whole Nik Naks debate, I like the rib and Worcester sauce ones, but don't like the scampi ones, which is odd, as I do love Scampi Fries, which come only second to pork scratchings for pub snacks. (Also love chilli-coated peanuts).
