I know Walkers have just released a a whole bunch of new flavours but I still havent gotten around to reviewing the ones that they made before so I thought Id make a start on them today - and get them over with. It was actually my mom who pestered me to try this "Fish & Chip" flavour because she was going on about how great they were so I just wanted to try them to shut her up LOL. I never thought for a second that they would actually be any good but I have say I was pleasantly surprised. I absolutely love chip shop fish & chips so I really hoped that Walkers would have managed to capture the flavour in these crisps and to be fair to a certain extent they did - but they were never going to taste like REAL fish and chips were they? But they were pretty damn close.
I cannot find the exact nutritional values for these crisps but again as I say all the time they cant be very good for you. For that matter this flavour crisp isnt even still available as they didnt win the flavour competition although if you do like them if you keep your eyes peeled in places like Poundland and Home Bargains you could find a few packs for very little cash.
If I was going on smell alone then I would urge everyone to stay away from these crisps because they really dont smell great. The smell VERY strongly of fish and the smell is very overpowering so make sure you wash your hands after eating a packet of these! This flavour doesnt smell anything like fish and chips I dont think just like rotten fish...not off to a good start, they DO NOT smell yummy.
Luckily enough though they taste quite a bit better. The fish definately is the strongest flavour out of the lot but the taste is no where near as overpowering as the scent, I wouldnt say it tastes exactly like a piece of battered cod from the chippy but the taste is quite similar. I cant really taste any "chip" flavour in these crisps but I guess that flavour comes from the crisp itself as obviously they are both taste like potato I would have liked that taste to be a little bit stronger because of the intensity of the fish but I think they have got the balance between the two alright, not spot on though. I liked the fact that these crisps had a lovely salt and vinegar tang to them which made them even more like proper fish and chips and overall I reckon these were quite nice. Definately the best flavour out of the competition in my opinion and I cant believe they didnt win!
Im going to give them a 3 out of 5 overall because the smell really is pretty rank and Im sure they would make some people want to stay the hell away! These are definately the marmite of crisps because looking at the other reviews the opinion seems to be split right down the middle! If you can find a packet I reckon you should try them though - fish and chip supper with half the calories!
Thanks For Reading
