Does anyone else find that after eating Tyrrells, Kettle and some of the other premium brands, Walkers in comparison tastes too soft and light? They lack that substantial crunch/weightiness.

I'd replace soft with cheek tearingly sharp. But yeah, they're thinner cuts than those of the "premium" brands, or even stuff like McCoy's. I'd say Seabrook (both kinds) were slightly chunkier than Walkers, too. Walkers MAX are okay, though.

Anyone who hasn't voted Piper's crisps obviously has never had Piper's crisps. My vote goes to Piper's crisps.

I'd like to give a shout out to Golden Wonder. They were THE big brand of crisps back in the day, then Walkers came seemingly out of nowhere (in Scotland, at least)and relegated them to a minority concern. Even now, I think the flavour of the crisp itself is superb, the crunch wonderful and at least two of their flavours (Salt and Vinegar/Smoky Bacon) are peerless. As far as more premium brands go, I like Tyrell's, but Kettle Salt and Pepper crisps are also pretty good.
Not available any more, as far as I know, anyway: Nando's Peri Peri crisps. Excellent, if ever-so-slightly greasy, but alas they are gone.

McCoy's are one of my least favourite crisp brands, I've never had a bag that didn't have at least one burnt or 'bad' crisp in it.

They also quite often taste slightly stale.

I just got a taste of it from seeing that shot of the bag :lol: (Taste of cheese and onion flavour, obviously.)

They ended production in 2013: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local ... 26-2534305 People may be losing their jobs but we have ours to do; time for a pun!

Article brought to mind another crispy crisp: Golden Wonder c&o. On the one hand it's a bit like regular Walkers in that the potato cut is somewhat thin, but the flavour is *really* flavourful, probably a bit too much, even.

The bacon & brown sauce highlanders were delicious.
