Walkers Salt & Vinegar Flavour Crisps
Advantages: quiet cheap, very crunchy, suitable for vegeterians
Disadvantages: irritates lips, too much vinegar, not too healthy
From my childhood I have always liked all the junk food I could get hold of and that includes chocolate, biscuit, chips and crisp. Those days when I used to eat crisp I never minded which flavour I got as long as it was crisp. Nowadays I am a bit selective on what I eat of course as I've gained my independence on what food I eat. Crisp is now something I eat whenever my heart tells me to and that is usually a few times a week. Amongst those crisp happens to be the Walkers Salt and Vinegar crisps, which I've lost taste in.
I've never really had problems with walkers products at all. I think they are one of the companies that make crisp. But I guess sometimes, you do lose taste in things.
________Cost and Packaging________
These walkers' salt and Vinegar crisp come in a green packet and have a picture of the logo and crisps on the front. A packet of walkers Salt and Vinegar regularly cost me 40p when I buy them from a vending machine at my workplace. In my local Newsagent they however cost 35p a packet and I think about 32p in supermarkets. Therefore, the price varies depending were you buy them. You can also buy the crisp in a pack of 6. This tends to be cheaper as the price range from 90p-£110 (depending were you buy them) suggesting an average of 15-20p a packet of crisp.
Of course there were people who used to buy these crisp in packs of six and sold them separately to the public, thus generating a lot of profits. Walkers therefore decided to print out a note highlighted in yellow on the front of the crisp and the back (in a box) of the package saying "Multi-pack Bag, not for individual sale". For that reason when you buy your salt and Vinegar walkers crisp make sure it does not have that not in front of it.
________Taste & smell________
I am not going to lie but I used to like the taste of salt and vinegar in my childhood. Nowadays, I only eat the Salt and Vinegar walkers crisp if someone offers them to me, or if they are the last flavour in my pack of six walkers crisp were ready salted and cheese and onion flavour is present.
The salt and vinegar crisp have more vinegar than salt. Why do I say this? Well when I open the packet of crisp the first thing I smell is vinegar and when I put a salt and vinegar crisp on my tongue the first thing I taste is the sharp vinegar that makes my tongue feel like it is going to drop off. My mouth goes watery with the taste of sour. In my mind I'm wondering were is all the salt gone, but no the vinegar is fighting for victory, the salt has been tackled down and yes the vinegar wins and in it goes into your guts before the salt has its chance.
These crisp they taste bitter and it irritates my lips at times, after I finish eating them, my mouth tastes bitter too. Their taste is not what I look for in crisp really, but of course they are people out there whom like bitter crisp (like I used to like them)
I must admit that they are crunchy and that is what I look for in crisp.
These crisps are however not too healthy so make sure you control yourself when indulging them. They have a total of 131 calories per packet. If you are wondering, a 25g packet of Salt n vinegar crisp has 8.3g of fat (0.7g saturated fat) and a huge 12.5g of carbohydrates.
--- Moreover, you could buy this salt and vinegar in an 18 pack or 24 and sometimes even 36. However, it's not going to be only salt and vinegar in the pack but also other flavour e.g. ready salted prawn cocktail, cheese and onion etc. In a pack of six you are likely to find only Salt and Vinegar in supermarkets but it is rare nowadays.
---These Salt and Vinegar crisp have no artificial colours
---These Salt and Vinegar crisp are suitable for coeliacs and vegetarians.

Summary: takes away your hunger but leaves you feeling bitter. . .
