Anyone tried them?

Onion bhaji
Builder's breakfast
Duck and hoisin sauce
Cajun squirrel
Fish and chips
Chilli and chocolate

i've tried the first four and Builder's breakfast is the 'best'. It tastes like smoky bacon with a hint of fried egg. Onion bhaji was ok too. Duck was so sweet, but could taste a hint of hoisin at least. squirrel was just spicy, could've been cajun anything

What does anyone else think of the new flavours?

Personally I'll stick with good old cheese and onion!

Have tried Builders Breakfast and Fish & Chips, and wasn't really impressed by either.  I wasn't keen on the eggy aftertaste of the breakfast one, while the fish & chips one left me with that claggy-mouth feeling of having eaten cold greasy chips.  Not nice.  Weird though, as my mouth wasn't actually claggy, it was just that I had that feeling as a result of the flavour alone (cold chips with vinegar).

Patatas Bravas sounds like a great suggestion to me Jon.  I'm with you - they should have picked that!  Thumbs%20Up

Not mad keen on Walkers generally.  Give me Kettlechips any day.

oh yes S&V FTW all the way, there is no contest (especially walkers S&V square crisps) however the largely ignored frazzle also features highly for me... and the new/old beef flavoured monster munch

Walkers Worcester Sauce now that is heaven.
 
They should of done Sweet and Sour flavoured crisps.

Walkers ready salted are to die for. Cheese and onion make me want to gip at the smell when anyone opens a packet. Puke

Right, I've tried them all now with the exception of Builders Breakfast. I hear they smell and taste strongly of eggs, which I hate. I think they look brilliant and I would love to eat a runny fried egg but the flavour makes me ill.
 
ANYWAY, my vote goes to either Onion Bhaji or Chilli & Chocolate. I think Onion Bhaji just pips Chilli & Choc though.

Fish and chips are REALLY fishy aren't they? They were alright but they should be more vinegary. I prefer Scampi Fries anyway.

See I couldn't really taste much of either, they tasted more to me like posh salted crisps but last night I had a packet and they were the business. My tongue nipped for ages afterward. Cajun Squirrel are fairly ok too.

I can't have crisps as I have given them up for lent.

Apparently you can have what you have given up for lent on a Sunday - heard that from a vicar.

I don't give up anything for Lent but that is a good thing to know! Especially if you wanted to tempt somebody...

i believe builders breakfast won. must have been the taste of egg what did it.

or just the fact that all the others were mre unpleasant!!

I'm disappointed in the winner here. I HATE eggs but stangely enjoyed the switch from egg to generic spicy meat (snouts OM NOM NOM) when eating these but I definitely preferred Onion Bhaji and Cajun Squirrel.

I don't think I'll ever buy these unless they do a modified Sensations line - sausage, bacon and BBQ sauce flavour. Then we will be talking.

I didn't try any of them, I could feel the indigestion just looking at the packs.

Yup they are proper heartburn material but I'm not scared of that anymore, I could get heartburn drinking a glass of water. Eating plenty of yoghurt and nicking my workmate's gran's heartburn pills sorts that out nicely.

Walkers should totally do bacon and BEANS flavour! There used to be these cheap, bean-shaped corn snacks that were bacon & bean flavour and they were dynamite.

watch out with those gaviscon and zantax pill you, I had the same, used to live on the pills as the only way of getting through the day... then gave up red wine and bread and *poof* gone

Still not tried any of these new flavoured cisps.  Are they staying around or are they limited editions?
 
Marmite is my favourite flavour of all crisps!

Date Posted: 08 June 2009 at 11:23
Builders breakfast will stay around as it was the winner but you can still buy the multi packs

Marmite is evil

Oh I don't mind Marmite flavour. I can't stand actual Marmite but the crisps are ok. I had some Oriental Red Curry Sensations on Saturday but they were pretty rubbish. I'll stick to chicken & thyme flavour, it's like Christmas dinner in a bag.

I love Marmite. It's what poached eggs and muffins were made for!

As for the crisps - I find that with a lot of flavours I have to look at the packet to know what it's supposed to taste like!

Nothing better than good old cheese and onion for me!

I've said this before, but Walkers cheese & onion on a sandwich with Primula cheese & chive (or cheese & ham) is amazing. Perfect hangover food.

Me too! Give that a go, I swear it's brilliant. If you've got strong teeth, BBQ Beef Hula Hoops are also a winner. Discos now have a bacon falvour so will have to investigate what cheese spread goes best with them now *slabbers*

I find Cheese and onion are good in sarnies, or even better Pringles sour cream and chive.

Date Posted: 03 Aug 2009 at 19:05
Ah now Pringles aren't crisps! They contain about 42% potato, the rest is rice flour.  Still yummy though!!!

Look out for iD3 mystery flavour Doritos, I'm working on the campaign.

You can get them in morrisons and small retailers at the moment, guess the flavour online and be in for a chance of £20k

Plus an interactive game that you will find life codes on the packs themselves to let you play http://id3.doritos.co.uk/ - http://id3.doritos.co.uk/

I saw an advert for this outside Costcutter earlier. Is it something exotic like celery & piss? Walkers make Doritos don't they? I only really like the cheese ones. I'd love a big tub of the cheese powder to put on chips.
