Eating a six pack of these now. Completely underrated, before I was opening a pack I thought to myself "wish I'd gone for the beefy Aliens instead" (no intergalactic homo) but these aren't fucking bad. Not a patch on Flamin' Hot/Prawn Cocktail Wotsits though. I should probably buy some Wotsits.

Crisps might be my favourite food.


Can you find these anywhere these days?



Cheeseburger flavour Quarterbacks were amazing.

You can get a 7 pack of Hula-Hoops for a quid in Asda. What a deal. Might be my favourite 'everyday' crisp. When the occassion doesn't call for a posher crisp, then these do the trick like no other.

To this day, still the best sea salt flavoured crisps I've ever had. Those Salt & Shake bastards could never fill the void that Highlanders left.

I think Transform-a-snacks technically aren't crisps, because they're corn not potato. Like Doritos. I swear we already had a crisp thread on here where this was argued :lol:

Buuut they are lush and I could easily eat a 6 pack of those spicy ones at any time.

Good call on the Seabrooks. Might have to buy a couple of packets when I get a chance. Their Salt & Vinegar ones almost give me an epileptic fit, but they're well nice.

The best threads on CHB thus far have all been food/drink related ones, in my opinion.

Co-signing this one as a result.

Transform-a-snacks are fucking ace, especiallly for a cheapo brand. There's a little newsagents round here that sells all those cheapo 10p bags of stuff like Tangy Toms, bacon thingys, the quarterback ones. For me though, as well as T-a-S, any of these are ace:

Felix bringing in the big guns now. Purple Nik Naks, there's a blast from the past. Used to eat the fuck out of them. Roysters are wicked to eat when you're baked, and Monster Munch have been in the P4P top 5 since they debuted.

Nik Naks have been a favourite of mine for many a year. Top crisp, nice and substantial. Whoever mentioned Seabrooks' also deserves a hearty congratulaion; they're ace. Anyone remember those chip shop fries? They came in a landscape bag, as opposed to the regular portrait format, and they were summat like chip shop curry sauce, and salt & vinegar flavours. The bags were meant to look like newspaper wrapping, and they might have been by Smiths. SALT 'N' SHAKE!! One second no salt; the next it's be like licking the inside of a council gritter (no euphemism).

Nobody ever bought those Scampi Fries when I worked on crisps in Morrisons, they would lay dormant there for fucking weeks. Always a Chipstick man, myself. They were always the first to go on the weekly deals, leaving two dump bins of fucking frazzles.

See, Frazzles are a bit of a guilty pleasure; strong flavour, loads in a bag, but really greasy and leave me feeling a bit sickly afterwards. As for scampi fries, they were always the crisps I'd ignore because they were more expensive and there was fuck all in the bag.
