Walkers Extra Crunchy
Advantages: big packet, taste great
Disadvantages: lots and lots of horrible little calories!
I saw these crisps advertised on the television with Lionel Richie and Gary Lineker and I had to try some. Not only are they made by my favourite brand of crisps, Walkers, but also they're in a bigger packet meaning munching for longer on them.
I bought these from Morissons for about £1.50, pretty expensive for crisps, but I think they're worth it.
The crisps come in a creamy coloured bag with the flavour colour around it, ie blue for cheese and onion. They have the walkers logo quite big on the top so you know immediately what they are. The nutritional calues are on the back saying that the bag ontains 150g and each 30g portion contains 139 calories, meaning one bag contains over 600 claories! So try not to get carried away and eat a whole bag like I nearly did.
The packet says that the crisps are made from fresh potatoes sliced thicker than regular walkers making the crisps thicker and crunchier.
The crisps themselves are lovely, bigger and thicker than normal crisps and darker in colour. The flavour is quite rich, not much different from the normal walkers flavours really. They are heavenly though, I personally like to sandwich them which is lovely!
These are really good for a long car/train ride rather than taking lots of packets of crisps, you can just take one big bag of tasty crisps, although I dont know how much you'll want to share them, I know I don't!
They come in a small vareity of flavours including: simply salted, flame grilled steak, cheddar & sour cream, sweet chilli chicken and salt and malt vinegar. I've only tried the salt and vinegar and the cheddar and sour cream, both of which I've since bought again and love. I intend to try more of these and will update my review when I do.
Summary: Great tasting crisps yet again from walkers.
