      Do Walkers still make them?

      Scanning around Dooyoo looking for products to review, I was reminded of one product that seemed oddly scarce this year - Walkers Roast Turkey with Paxo Sage & Onion, a Limited Edition brand of crisps that they would only manufacture around Christmas. Nearly every year without fail I would grab a bunch of these bags, but this year they were strangely conspicuous by their absence. Has anyone seen them this year? If so, let me know, as I quite enjoyed them!

      Upon opening the packet, you are greeted with a rather gorgeous and overpowering smell of Paxo stuffing, although perhaps this is to the extent of not really allowing the turkey flavour to breathe through. However, as soon as you take your first bite into a crisp, that is alleviated, and in almost mouth-watering fashion, it feels as though you're eating a Christmas dinner, with your palette becoming engorged with the wonderful tangs of turkey and stuffing.

      My only real complaint is that Walkers haven't gone even further and made the taste even more layered and complex. The turkey taste is very nice, but it's hard to tell it apart from the various other meat flavours they've used before, and what really wins out is the Paxo flavouring which is very unique and distinguishable. In fact, I think Walkers should supply a little sachet of Cranberry sauce with each packet or something: that would make them more festive and probably help enhance the taste.

      Overall, I can't complain: the stuffing taste is lovely, although of course they won't really do much for vegetarians as a result of the turkey flavouring. Still, I assume they are no longer making them as they were very conspicuous by their absence this year!

        lovely flavoured crisps

        Walkers Roast Turkey with Paxo are simply what they say on tin. They are crisps with have a rather unique flavour.

        These crisps are definitely my favourite ever Walkers Crisps. In this flavour they really do capture the sensational taste of Turkey and stuffing. The crisps and absolutely delicious and I eagerly await their retail every Christmas, to me it really signals the start of Christmas.

        However this year (Christmas 2008) I failed to spot their arrival on our shelves so I am presuming that Walkers have stopped making this flavour. If this is the case I am shocked and disappointed because they really are nice crisps. And I am sure that sales would have been high as they were a Christmas themed crisp.

        It has simply baffled me why these crisps were discontinued. They tasted good, were reasonably priced and must have sold well because some years I have struggled to purchase them due to very high demand throughout stores.

          only around at xmas but i would bother

          These crisps appear around xmas and do get you in the spirit of things but they may be seen as a bit tooo much as you dont want to ruin the taste of xmas turkey dinner.

          i bought these at Sainsburys, they cost me 27p per 34.5-gram pack but Sainsbury?s have a deal on, you can buy 4 packs for £1, not bad so I bought four packs.

          The ingredients are: -

          Potatoes, vegetable oil, lactose, flavour enhancer, fat, egg yolk and salt.

          The pack is dark blue with the usual Walkers icon of white lettering on a red banner. There is then a round Christmas bubble with a sprig of holly and the words ?Roast turkey with Paxo sage and onion stuffing?.

          The calories are very high as with most crisps.

          Per 34.5 pack. 752 kj/ 181 kcal.

          When I got home I settled with my purchase and opened the pack. As I opened it, I began to imagine the flavour of a lovely roasted turkey all golden and tasty with a nice helping of Paxo sage and onion stuffing, mmmmm lovely.

          Firstly I took a nice long sniff. The smell wasn?t at all strong, just a slight whiff of sage and perhaps a slightly greasy smell. No not even a slightest hint of Turkey. You couldn?t even smell the onion.

          The crisps their selves were quite bland looking, they didn?t look exactly coated in flavouring as they sometimes do. They were very light in colour. They were nice large crisps and not all broken, which is something I was glad of. I hate it when you open a crisp pack and find nothing but crumbs.

          I took one out of the pack to try. I popped it in my mouth. It wa s nice and crisp just as they should be. The taste? well not exactly roast turkey with stuffing. In fact I can?t say it tasted of any meat at all. There was a distinctive flavour of sage with a hint of onion.
          I think the idea is to suggest the turkey flavour and hope your imagination will do the rest. I?m afraid it didn?t work with me. Not bad to taste but nothing to get all excited about, not even anything to put you in a Christmassy mood. Well it didn?t me anyway. If anything I thought the flavour was a bit weak.

          There is a web site for Walkers crisps at walkers.co.uk. It?s not very exciting but it might give you something to do when you?re bored. Although I can think of many others I would rather visit.

          When my son got home, I gave him one of the other packs. After he had eaten his, he totally agreed with me. Although he did say he liked them and then scoffed another packet.

          My first thought on ?Walkers roast turkey with sage and onion crisps? has to be ? Where?s the Turkey?? in my opinion these crisp are just another attempt to jump on the Christmas band wagon by a leading crisp manufacturer. Personally I would have thought Walker?s would not have needed to resort to such gimmicks, as their crisps are one of the most popular on the market.

          All in all as someone who likes crisps these are fine, just another flavour, enjoyable, not very tasty but ok. Just another crisp at an average crisp price.

            Turkey with stuffing flavoured crisps but suitable for coeliacs

            WANTED TO BE ABLE TO UPDATE THIS WITH MORE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT BUT NOW AM ON A WHEAT FREE DIET, I BELIEVE THAT I CAN NOT NOW HAVE THIS PRODUCT.

            NAME OF FOOD: Walkers Crispmas crisps, which are crisps with a festive theme, i.e. Turkey and Saxo Sage and Onion Stuffing.

            BACKGROUND
            I was trawling round Tesco in search of some crisps to put in my lunch box and in addition to the Pringles (Pop till you pop review) I saw a "new" variety of Walkers Crisps "Crispmas" and bought a pack in addition to my normal Walkers multipack. Yes, I know I am gullible for these gimmicks and BOGOF (Buy one get one free) offers. Hey, I am female and love a "bargain".

            COLOUR
            The packaging is dark almost navy blue similar to Cheese and Onion but darker, but the crisps are a delicious light creamy yellow.

            PACKAGING.
            The bag contained 6 bags of crisps

            TASTE
            I find these to be very similar to the Roast Chicken variety of old.

            SMELL
            Like the old roast Chicken I remember from my youth.

            MAIN INGREDIENTS
            Dehydrated potatoes, vegetable oil, corn flour, paprika flavouring. Suitable for coeliacs, despite having stuffing as a possible ingredient.

            PRICE
            92p for a multi-pack of 6 at Tesco. I haven't seen them loose so am unable to comment on individual packets.

            GOOD POINTS

            Very edible crisps - I have no packets left, but my boyfriend who visits at weekends also gobbled some up.

            BAD POINTS
            Can't think of any but the fat content is probably a lot if on a diet. Cheese and onion packet is 8.3g fat per 25g packet (as don't have this packet to hand now as only available at Christmas).

            AFTERWARDS
            You have to buy more of these but they only seem to be available at Christmas, more's the pity.

            MADE BY/MORE INFORMATION FROM
            I have not checked out the Walkers website but list it here for information. www. walkers.co.uk

            Made by Walkers Crisps, Consumer Services Department Walkers Snack Foods Ltd, PO Box 23, Leicester, LE4 8ZU, UK.

              Disadvantages

              Crisps are my weak spot and they have been for many years now. I recently was introduced to chocolate and wrote many chocolate opinions but they couldn’t sway me from my addiction to crisps for long and this flavour was the turning point for me that got me back into them. *A little about Walkers* I’d be very surprised if there were people reading this that hadn’t heard of walkers. They have been around for years and years and there are many different flavours in the walker’s range. These flavours include: Prawn cocktail Cheese and onion Salt and vinegar Cheese and pickle Marmite Barbeque Beef and onion Smoky bacon Roast chicken They have also brought out some newer flavours including: Chinese spare rib flavour Barbeque ribs flavour Sweet and sour flavours And they are the makers of those yummy sensation crisps ‘walker’s sensations’. These flavours include: Four cheeses flavour Roast ham flavour Walkers are forever growing and they are by far the leading manufacturers of crisps. They use Gary Lineker to advertise them, which I’m sure you have all seen. And they have also reached out to the Kumar’s (that lovely Indian? Family that have their own show on channel 2), to join forces with Gary in their latest adverts for the take away selections. I don’t doubt that walkers have high quality and more people trust walkers crisps than any other brand. I however can take them or leave them…I love any brand of crisps! *What is this particular flavour like?* Well roast turkey and paxo sage and onion flavour crisps is the latest in the selection and they are obviously made due to it being Xmas time. The packaging is C
              ;hristmassy and it actually says on the bag merry crispmas! The packaging isn’t really that exciting and it has the colours of cheese and onion only in a darker blue. On the back there is more of a Christmassy feel as it gives the classic Christmas carol “we wish you a merry Christmas only changing the Christmas to crispmas. Apart from that though you will find the usual information like nutritional information, ingredients, address for comments, complaints and questions you may have, how much is in the bag and the best before date. Oh and another thing it mentions is that these crisps are suitable for coeliacs. *What nutritional information is there?* Well there’s the important information people on diets need to know (fat and calories) so here is that information especially for you people: Per bag there are, 131 calories 8.3g fat Not bad in calories but the fat content is quite high (whoops me and Stephen had 3 bags each!). *What do they taste like and do they smell nice?* I was really disappointed with the taste of these to be honest. When you buy something new you want it to be just that…not tried before. However when I tried them I noticed that they tasted an awful lot like another flavour walkers do…roast chicken. Some people could argue this is because chicken and turkey are quite alike and that may be true but if it’s a different flavour it should taste different. You can taste the paxo a little but the chicken taste dominates most of it and there also isn’t much flavour on the crisps. Don’t get me wrong they are nice but next time I might as well buy some chicken crisps and get the same taste. They do smell nice though and they don’t smell as strong as chicken crisps. They smell more like turkey before you try them.
              *Price, how much you get in a bag and availability* We bought these in a 6 pack for £1.08. I haven’t seen them around singly although I’m sure they will do them in most supermarkets and corner shops. You get 25g in a bag as with all walkers normal packs and I assume singly they will be priced between 30p-45p depending on where you buy them from. *My overall opinion of them* I did like these but I didn’t find them to be anything to make a song and dance about. They didn’t have much flavour and they lacked in originality. The only difference with them for me was the name and the packaging. I don’t think I’ll bother buying them again but you never know. I hope this has helped you make up your mind but hey don’t take my word for it because some people might like these and think they are different. Everyone has different tastes.

                Oh dear Christmas is being thrown in our faces so early these days. Decorations are starting to take over the supermarkets and shops, Toys are now being advertised on TV like they are going out of fashion and Walkers have brought out their version of Christmas as well. I am talking about ?Walkers roast turkey with Paxo sage and onion stuffing? crisps. These crisps have been brought out previously at Christmases past just for a limited time. I do remember them from last year but I?m not sure just when they first hit the market. How ever their back again. I bought these at Sainsburys, they cost me 27p per 34.5-gram pack but Sainsbury?s have a deal on, you can buy 4 packs for £1, not bad so I bought four packs. The ingredients are: - Potatoes, vegetable oil, lactose, flavour enhancer, fat, egg yolk and salt. The pack is dark blue with the usual Walkers icon of white lettering on a red banner.

All in all as someone who likes crisps these are fine, just another flavour, enjoyable, not very tasty but ok. Just another crisp at an average crisp price. I might buy these again if there is not another flavour I like but I wouldn?t go out purposely to buy them. Thanks for reading.
