the king of all salted potato snacks?
and also the best reason for living in the north!
but i know the family who make them. so that probably tarnishes them somewhat
i know sam brook-crispin (real name), and her little sister is charlotte.
so her name is C. Brook-Crispin
pretty good eh!
not just a coincidence!
on the occasion of her forthcoming Directorship.
U GO GIRL!
the spring onion crisps are a truly remarkable feat of crisp design. They shit all over Walkers.
in the world. Prawn Cocktail, followed by Worcester Sauce, followed by Tomato Sauce.
we have them in Leicester.
fuck it we have them in SOUTH Leicestershire.
do not play down the reach of the Seabrook machine.
seabrook < walkers < mccoys < kettle chips < chipsticks
lol @ the 'village shop'
i might buy a box of salt and vinegar. or make a song out of his s-sea salt and v-vinegar chants.
when you order cheese n' chive the tiller goes, "That's p-p-posh ch-cheese n' onion to you."
Also, the fact that they do bespoke boxes of 48 is just amazing. £12...deal.
i just got one click away from buying one of those bespoke boxes. saw sense at the final furlong.
we had them at school in Shropshire
sez so on the packets
and you can buy boxes of them off the internet which is so awesome
smelly, smelly place that. now its staffed 100% by polish
That's in Crossharbour. I've not tried them, but I will have to now.
especially their salt and vinegar flavour. Best enjoyed in a country pub in some tiny village in the Peak District with a nice pint of real ale.
deep fried salted bank notes in the south.
go well with a pint of stapramen at the orange tree in nottingham. dont know where else to get them.
so you know where to look:
salt & vinegar crisps you can get
with a kapital k krisps.
taytos. fucking taytos. why does everyone rave about them? can someone explain why they're any better than any other crisp?
I miss these! I hadn't realised they don't sell them in the south, and I've lived in London for 4 years!
Prawn cocktail Seabrook FTW!!
although whats with the snazzy new ones which are about double the price?
are just sick and wrong but the canadian bacon are quality
I wish I could still find the spicy range. Wasabi crisps are great.
jeez this realisation has saddened me somewhat.
Burts of Devon are WAY better.
I know you do. Prawn especially, nom nom nom
from Poundland. Yes, Poundland. They were pale and greasy... although palatable, they were a long way off the king of crips.
It was always the scrubber kids at school that had Seabrooks.
Walkers were a statement of wealth, health and overall snack satisfaction.
Anyway, lets talk more about the JAG. Pretty impressive googling.
I'd like to try googling it myself but it will have been skewed by the bumping of this thread. Can Theo sort me out with google from an hour ago?
Sounds fishy to me.
New Walkers MD:
Davis 'smokey' Beckham
miss them a bit
East Dulwich Sainsburys has them. And by god, they're good.
I can't remember where it was but I went to school in Bradford so it must have been nearby.
They make two different flavours every day and they gave everyone on the trip a bag of each.
We were even allowed (and I'm sure this has been stopped since) to grab some of the crisps off a conveyor belt as they went past, before they were bagged up.
asda or tesco are your friends
2) They're not that great
they don't taste the same as a pack from the Head Of Steam in Newcastle though :0(
Although what happened to salt n shake, do those still exist? Were they even Seabrook...
the hottest crisps in the world!
Took me about an hour to eat them last night
and I think you can still get them in multipacks form supermarkets or pikey shops. Why is it that you can only get some crisps in multipacks from pikey shops? Like Frisps? They're in date and all.
I don't know any pikey shops in Leeds. Frisps were well good though! I used to love those.
Salt n Shake were ace, you'd get three crisps covered in salt, then the rest of the pack would be tasteless.
in the merrion centre probably has them. got knows when i've last been inside there though when it wasn't for idioteque, and idk if that counts.
might honestly be primary school. pretty interesting.
I live next to the Merrion Centre!
i cant remember the name of the ones i have in my head :(
also i JUST went to farmfoods in harehills. i dont think ive ever set foot in one before. i didnt realise theyre basically pound shops of frozen food. they had giant boxes of space raiders. was so tempted.
Yeh, the way way way huge silver tower with a flashy light on top. Sky Plaza/The Plaza. It's shit.
alongside 4 7-UPS for a quid.
i didnt think the plaza was that bad. though in the six or so sets of halls ive been in theyre all pretty much identical and boring. i suppose the location's both really rubbish/quite good in different ways.
As in it's £40 a week more than I was supposed to be paying in the halls I wanted to be in. I like the location though, I'm lazy so it's nice living next door to pretty much everything.
My view = that dead big road though, which isn't fun. I'm not even high up, so I can't see pretty lights and shit at night.
owned by Lays, anyway? The American lot? (Though you can get their crisps in Europe too)
especially those cheese and ham 3Ds in the shape of an ice cream cone AND you can still get those little wheel shaped crisps with no flavour and that are mainly air and grease yet they're amazing (though, my Nan, again, has discovered that you can get these as part of a multi pack thing in M&S :-D)
are the ones that come in a red, Ritz-biscuit-like box, and you can get them in Italy, Belgium and other European places. Can't for the life of me remember their name but they're by Croky, and they're like little bean-shaped delights of puffed air and reconstituted potato. Dear god they're astonishing.
fucking world conquering, monopolistic cunts.
when they vanished for all those years my Nan was still able to supply me with a packet every time I went round, the woman's a marvel...it's not the first time she's had some boundless supply of a discontinued foodstuff all still in date. I hope she'll pass on the secret for such bad times as when scampi and lemon nik naks decide to disappear again.
seabrook crisps were/are fantastic
In Stirling we could only get ready salted ones, and even those were only in Sainsbury's
King of all salty snacks full stop.
