DD has tried them and reckons they are the best of the funky flavours Walkers are trying out on the public right now.

I'm a bit conservative about Walkers crisps. If they ain't roast chicken then they ain't going in my mouth..

Well that would put me off right away.
Do some taste of fish and some of chips? Or is it a messy amalgamation of the two, with a whif of Grimsby?

I'll be sticking to Scampi Fries, then. They taste of Filey

the only one I've tried that comes anywhere near close to edible is chocolate and chili

Oh no, I thought the chocolate and chilli ones were foul. Can these possibly be worse?

You lot are just weird.
Over here, for years, it was plain or paprika, they're only just starting to accept cheese & onion.

Chocolate and chilli are worse. The smell of the Grimsby ones are worse, the taste is not as revolting.

The onion bharji ones are ok

Years back, Walkers bought out Tudor Crisps, but kept the brand name to experiment with, so things like hedgehog crisps appeared under the Tudor brand, and any that sold well were then incorporated into the Walkers range. Here endeth today's lesson.

Is there a mushy pea flavour to go with the fish and chips?

I had to google Walker's Crisps. flavours like marmite and worcester sauce are to be expected, but chilli and chocolate, cajun squirrel??

they are importing squirrels from Louisiana for chip flavour? btw, how did they get all the pointy bits out for the hedgehog crisps?

Walkers crisps are the best on the planet!

FilbertFox says:

Not sure if I have ever had scampi fries

Rich says:

If you've ever had scampi and lemon nik-naks then the taste of walkers fish and chips is highly reminiscent.

Builders Breakfast FTW!
