Can't beat a builders breakfast - especially at about 10.00am when you've done a couple of hours work...

Onion Bhaji and curry on a night though 'MMmmmm.....lovely'

I remember there being hedgehog flavoured crisps years ago, just tasted like beef though.

Do you mean wife number 1 and daughter? How many wives do you have?
Or do you mean your 1st wife, now ex, in which case why is she buying you crisps?

Anyway, as for me, I wouldn't vote for any of them. Ready salted is fine for me.

Wonder who created these:

A: Wizard food scientist who spent sleepless nights and endured the hardships and self denial know only to the true genius to bring us these delights.


B: Gobshite marketing types who dreamt up such "innovative" products and only then asked the food scientists to brew up some flavouring that might approximate to what was on the outside of the packet after 15 pints of Old Atrocious and a Lamb Tindaloo.

The builder's breakfast ones are fcuking gopping. They taste like farts smell. Saying that, the rest of them aren't anything to write home about either.

All absolutely bogging, the builders breakfast tasted and smelled like rotten eggs with ketchup on. The aftertaste on the choc and chillie was foul like burnt toast. The onion bhaji and cajun squirrel whilst edible were anything but pleasant. I hope none of these end up in multipacks of walkers crisps. Its bad enough trying to get rid of prawn cocktail and smoky bacon at the best of times.

These sort of snacks (along with those corn or extruded potato snacks so beloved of Mr Deputy) only exist to serve the drinks industry. Their noble history stems from the desire of those who sell beer to make their customers more thirsty. And that all dates back for centuries, to the days when landlords would regularly water down their ale, and would add salt to it to increase their customers' thirst.

The post of ale tatster - a man who tested ale and beer for quality was first recorded in 1377 in London, and appointed by the Manor, a forerunner of the Inspector for Weights & Measures.

William Shakespeare's dad was an ale taster, appointed in 1556, he was chosen as one of Stratford-upon-Avon's two ale-tasters — an office for 'able persons and discreet', whose duties were to check that bakers made loaves of regulation weight, and brewers 'wholesome' ales and beers at regulation prices. The ale-taster's powers were considerable: those he found in breach of the regulations were liable to appear before the twice-yearly manorial court, or 'leet', which had the power to inflict punishments from fines to a whipping, a sojourn in the stocks or pillory, or even worse public humiliation in the 'cucking stool' — a chair in the shape of a giant chamber-pot, in which the offender was ducked in the river to the delighted derision of his clientele.

Anyway. The upshot of all this is that the whole point of these snacks is not to give you pleasure, but to make you drink more. Most of the flavours have never been within a mile of the animal or plant they are purporting to resemble. They are chemical concoctions of the utmost filth and the names they carry are simply marketing devices, to encourage you to buy them, consume them and then drink more booze.

Er, and thats about it. Rant over.

Sorry!

How much more do they want me drink??

I'm doing my best to curb young kids binge drinking by trying to rid the country of the demon drink.

I'm with Al Murray on this

ready salted - can't be faulted
cheese and onion - bags of fun..ion
salt and vinegar - they're a win...egar
all the rest you MUST NOT SAVOUR
'cept smokey bacon - which has a waiver

The Chocolate and Chilli were gopping, truely gopping. I couldn't say what they did taste like because clearly something that tasted as bad as those crisps was not designed to be eaten, and probably carries a warning label that reads 'In the event of injestion do not induce vomiting, and seek immediate medical advice.'
