we can thank Columbo for many things, including cheese and ham (or even smoky bacon) crisps
You wouldn't know it to look at him, but he was clearly a genius.




I need to move closer to bobbo89 as I can't find these anywhere near me and they are my favourite.

I don't really have a particular crisp to do a certain job, but favourites are Walkers and Seabrook, S&V, beef.

Sorry to be picky, but many of the snacks mentioned are not crisps, as the OP points out, crisps are made from potatos.

Monster munch
Pringles
Wotsits
Frazzles
Bacon Fries
Quavers
Squares
Scampi fries
Hula Hoops

I had a packet of Pipers Chorizo crisps last night in the pub, they were absolutely stunning & perfect with ale & much hotter than I expected.

I think it's very great that crisps are actually just called what they are, ie: crisp.

Wouldn't life be so much simpler if we just called everything what it was?

Not my point.

Not that frazzles aren't salty enough compared to own brands, rather that the frazzles recipe changed significantly post salt revolution.

Many own brands just have weird tastes/aftertastes. Salty or not.
Ah right I see - fair dos.

Have you tried making your own?

My friend used to make his own crisps, took a few tries to get everything perfect but after that they were brilliant.

I just dug this thread back up to say I discovered Pipers crisps today and they are fantastic. lick
We went to Theakstons Brewery and had a few drink
The quality of the Old Peculier was beyond belief as you would have hoped so and even though the crisps were £1 per packet they were a worthy partner.

It's such a shame this isn't a more popular drink, because most places that sell it have to hang onto it for so long it starts to go off and it's crap, this in turn probably puts people off buying it again.

I remember xl from growing up in the lakes. Good crisps.

Coincidentally, am up visiting my mum, so may have to go on a crisp hunt today.
