Advantages: Really tasty and supprisingly a bit healthier
Disadvantages: need more flavours in the range
I simply love Disco's and its one of the types of crisps that I have continued to buy over the years since I was very young. I can't remember when they first hit the shops but I do remember buying them when I was very young. They are different from normal crisps mostly because according to the packaging they are made from wheat. They are thicker than normal potato crisps and they are mostly round in shape. The texture is a bit rough but the best thing I like about them is that the flavour really sticks to them and although they don't have a huge range of flavours what they have is a really strong flavour in each type. The other thing I like about them is that sometimes normal crisps can splinter in your mouth and I get the odd stray shard piercing my gum, but not with these. I'm sure it's the wheat mixed with potato that gives the unusual texture.
Salt and vinegar is probably the strongest one and my favourite one. They are really strong with the vinegar so much so that they can make your mouth feel like its burning. I mean that in a good way as I like things to be a bit spicy.
Beef flavour again is very strong and not unlike Roysters T-bone steak flavour. With this flavour you can see how strong in flavour each crisp will be by the amount of beef flavouring on them.
Bacon flavour are ok and again you can really taste the bacon but there's just something missing in the bacon that I cant put my finger on. But if they are in my cupboard I will eat them.
Cheese and onion just taste very much the same as any other decent brand of crisp, however I do like these with a small dab of salad cream with them. This seems to really bring out the cheese side although be aware your breath does stink afterwards. Worth the pain though.
I have only commented on the above flavours as this is the ones we get in the multi packs. They usually come in packs of nine with three of each flavour. It was always salt and vinegar, cheese and onion and beef but that has changed recently and the beef have been replaced with bacon. The price of these multi packs varies from the odd deal at £1.00 up to about £1.59 for the pack.
I have just finished two packs so I have some of the facts on hand:
Per bag 28g
Energy kcal 146
They also claim to now have 50% less saturated fat and to be honest I don't care as long as they taste good.
The only thing bad i would say is that about 10 years ago they produced a flavour and from memory i think they were called really tangy flavour or something like that and they were the greatest flavour of crisp snacks i have ever expeirianced. They were so spicy that they could make you break out in a sweat. C'MON KP BRING BACK THE TANGY ONES!
