Walkers Deep Ridged Chilli Beef

These crisps come as part of Walkers attempt to go after the McCoys market with mixed success. The texture is lighter than the competitors but still nice and crunchy. The flavour hits the right notes without being too spicy but not that memorable either.

Walkers Prawn Cocktail Pops

Walkers launch another offensive into the healthy crisp market with Pops, which are apparently air popped crisps. The taste is the usual excellent Walkers prawn cocktail but it is slightly let town by the texture; surprisingly crunchy the flavour quickly fades to leave behind quite a bland taste. Enjoyable but needs a bit more work.

McCoy’s Ridge Cut Bullseye Bangers

McCoy’s are already highly regarded crisps so what is the only thing they need to make them better? Sausages which is what we have here. A nice round sweet flavour matches up well with the usual McCoy crunch making this an absolute treat.

Walkers Sunbites Wholegrain Crispy Snacks Cheddar and Caramelised Onion

What we have here is essentially a very this and crunchy Rivita shaped into little square crisps. The texture isn’t the best but passable but isn’t helped by the flavour; it says onion on the packet but someone should have told the crisps. Decent at best.

Cofresh Chilli and Lemon Potato Grills

So what is a grill? Well, it’s a small almost crinkled crisp with a punchy texture that deserves to more widely known. Couple this with a pleasantly spicy texture and you’ve got a great find that is recommended as one to hunt down.

Walkers Baked Hoops and Crosses Prawn Cocktail

In the spirit of Transform-a-Snacks, here is another baked corn smacked that tries to combine the world of toys and snacks. Here we have a simple variation on the childhood favourite noughts and crosses with snacks shaped as each. Whilst no where near as impressive as the Twisted snacks, these get the job done with a familiar flavour for those who have tried the Worsit variation. Not a bad snack but doesn’t have the theatricality of the Transform-a-Snack so okay at best.

Phileas Fogg American Style Bubble Chips Cheese and New York Deli Relish
Veteran crispologists may remember Phileas Fogg from the late eighties as an upper market brand showcasing flavours of the world, Punjab Puri being a particular favourite of this reviewer. They now return in the large bag format, this flavour highlighting New York. The ‘chips’ themselves are a delight, roughly the size of a mini popadum with a light bubbly texture. The flavour is good and in your face, if a little overwhelming if you’re trying to go for the whole bag in one. Overall, a treat.

Smiths Twisted Flamin’ Hot

Since the invention of the Wotsit, corn puff evolution appeared to be at a stand still. That is until Smiths launched the Twisted; take your standard Wotsit, stretch untill about three times it’s length then twist it round into a spring shape. Due to the impressive mouth filling size there aren’t that many to the bag and the Flamin’ Hot flavour has no surprises if you’ve ever tried the original Worsite variant. But what the Twisted does bring to table is corn puff construction of the highest order.

McCoy’s Ridge Cut Pickled One-Onion-And-Eighty
Pickled Onion is a flavour that doesn’t get enough praise. They were the best Nik Nak flavour before disappearing from our shelves and here they can stand amongst the best of the McCoy range. Nice and oniony but without the bite of the Monster Munch version this is well worth trying to track down.

Special K Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar Cracker Crisps
Another box, another great crispy potato snack. The flavour hits with a nice vinegary tone and the texture is still there behind him. Still a decent snack and the fact that it comes in a box still doesn’t get old.
