As a child these seemed the unglamorous choice, a packet for adults, when I was happy to take a risk with what i saw as exciting flavours such as Roast Chicken or Smoky Bacon.
As the years went by, no amount of limited edition flavours could sway me from my gradual realisation that these flavours would often repeat on me, which left just the basic flavours...
Cheese and onion, while tasty also had this subtle after-effect and salt and vinegar are too much for me.
As a result I began to get a taste for what were often called 'plain' crisps and a love affair was born.
A no-frills taste but more-ish nevertheless.
I am now an adult, no longer a child.
