Good crisp bad crisp

Recommended Posts

I tried Iceland's Christmas Tree flavoured crisps.

 

They taste like toilet cleaner.

They're great. They taste exactly like something else I've had, can't think what though.

Just had a bag of these:

Really flavoursome and surprisingly spicy. Recommended!

 

The Honey Mustard and Onion flavour are the best.

 

Good crisps:

 

M&S's Lime Salsa tortilla scoops - the nearest thing to the original version of Kettle Tortillas from the turn of the century.

 

Doritos Collisions Honey Glazed Ribs & Lemon Blast - I'm addicted to these. Much better than the shite 'Roulette' ones. Almost as good as the Cheeseburger flavour they put out a couple of years ago (which lost the 'vote' to Salsa flavour which was the very height of bullshit)

 

Actually I have to stop for a minute and talk about those Cheeseburger Doritos, mankind's ultimate triumph of food science. You could taste the gherkin. You could taste the American cheese. You could taste the sesame seeds of the bun. If you closed your eyes you could smell the plastic tray. It is genuinely mental that they were a limited time thing, unless they were costing 10 quid per bag to manufacture or something.

 

Pickled Onion Fish N Chips

 

Kettle Chips Chefs Signature - Gressingham Duck

 

This thread has made me want to go buy some Brannigans, truly the "every time you mention Deus Ex someone reinstalls it" of crisps.

 

Mostly disappointing crisps:

 

Pringles are pretty weak these days.

Not bad, definitely feel the burn. But compared to the following...

I've had a few bags of these in the past. I don't know why i bought more than one bag because they will blow your head off. I think i had some milk and ice cream on standby (and used!) :lol:

Yushoi pea salt and vinegar are lush. 

 

I start liking the first couple of them then they start to gunge my teeth up and a nasty after taste comes thru.

 

I quite like those really thick cut crisps called slabs

If you want spicy crisps, Blair's Death Rain are a decent option (US Import), usually available on spicy foods websites and occasionally Amazon.

Tesco had them in. I bought the less spicy variety and they were still way too hot. Not in a nice way.

There is no such Pringles flavour?

Tyrrell's are the kings of the plain salted hand cooked crisp - we've tried every plain kettle style crisp we see and nothing beats Tyrrells, especially when you get the ones that curl over and aren't just flat - double crunch for you buck.

 

Most brands of plain salted upper end crisp are very nice (can't go wrong with M&S, Sainsbury TDF or many others) but Tyrrells are a notch above somehow, which for such a simple product with so few ingredients is interesting.

The last time I had them the Coop ones were still as magnificently punchy as ever - one notch short of being brutal (that was several months ago though). I've not tried the Tyrrell's so can't compare, but will check them out...

They don't seem to be available in supermarkets though, I've only ever seen them in pubs

Coop Salt & Vinegar wipe the floor with Tyrrell's

 

Indeed.  Tyrrell's are good (indeed, probably the second best) but Co-Op are the undisputed champions.  Really need to make the effort to visit my local to stock up. 

 

Sainsburys new own brand Salt and Vinegar flavour is pretty good too. 

 

Had these in Mexico and they were like touching God. Sadly, I cannot see anyway to obtain them over here.

Pretty sure Tyrrell's make those salt & vinegar crisps on behalf of Co-op. They certainly used to.

 

These are both lovely:

They did and may still do but something in the recipe has changed and they taste different now

It would not surprise me, both feel quite similar in texture.  I think Kettle's have gone wrong somewhere in recent years.  The flavours aren't there and they just feel so greasy now.
