Crisps
Started by: i-spy (14443)  Report abuse
After much market research I've come to the conclusion that crisps are a waste of money.
Walker's are just about the best of a bad bunch.

What happened to Bensons

Posted by: peebee (345)  Report abuse
Or Smiths with the little bag of salt ?

Posted by: tonker (20199)   Report abuse
Walkers (in my opinion) are amongst the worst crisps. Mind you, I only ever eat Cheese and Raw, so that makes me a bit biased.
The best for flavour (in my opinion) are Tesco's Cheese and Raws, 89p for a bag of 6 packets. Not many in a bag, laaaaike!

tonker what is/are cheese and Raws?

Posted by: i-spy (14443)  Report abuse

smiths with bag of salt are now owned by walkers, bensons are tasty.

I'm not a crisp lover on the whole but I do like Tyrell cheese and onion. they're like crisps used to be but suddenly they seem to have disappeared off the shelves.

Posted by: jo anne (32236)   Report abuse
Yes, that's right, Kenee!

Your solicitor, I-Spy? Sounds like it's crunch time! Watch it doesn't cost you a packet!

Best chips (crisp) in the USA iom..
Old Dutch salt and vinegar kettle cooked crisp

There's a big variety over here... crunchy

Posted by: kenee (2035) Report abuse

Aldi's duck confit & boozy berry flavour are OK
but their black truffle ones are disgusting!

Posted by: tonker (20199)   Report abuse
Britboy. Why do you say "Chips" for crisps, rather than Chip?
I know that there are more than one 'Chip', therefore they are 'Chips', but is there only one "Crisp"?

You're clearly an alien.

Posted by: britboy (6783) Report abuse
Thank you tonker, one of the few legal aliens in the USA

We have Kettle brand Chilli chips ( crisps ) perfect with a few coldies when watching the Sharkies in the NRL.

Posted by: tonker (20199)   Report abuse
Eating Kettle Crisps is like chewing glass!

Posted by: britboy (6783) Report abuse
It's an advantage to have your own teeth
