Confirmed sighting: Walkers Comic Relief Baked Bean flavour crisps
Posted: 19:03 Tue 21-01-2003. Price: 35p. Location: Bath. Sub-flavours: Standard crisps or Monster Munch. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
Stuart Campbell is divided on the merits of this Comic Relief limited edition: "Baked Bean Walkers crisps = the rock", he opines, but counters with "Baked Bean Monster Munch = the suck". "Had to immediately go and buy a case of the former, couldn't even finish a bag of the latter. Life is strange", he concludes. I didn't think the Monster Munch one was that bad - pretty similar to other tomato-ish maize snacks. But, especially after seeing the TV ads, we should at least be grateful they didn't call it "Special Comic Relief Fart Flavour"...

Comment: I also strongly recommend Tesco own-brand "Beast" snacks (pickled onion, 99p for 10 packets) to anyone who liked Monster Munch in the beginning or Outer Spacers before they became the vastly inferior Space Raiders. It's a little stinky trip back to a better time.

Comment: I tried the Walkers Baked Bean crisps (on sale at Aston Uni's student shop) and was pleasantly surprised. A bit like tomato ketchup crisps, but not as strong.

Comment: walkers have cleverly given consumers a bag with all the flavour of a plate of baked beans with the added bonus of scraping the roof of your mouth off. more ideas like this please!

Comment: These are the best crisps EVER. However, is it just me (and my age) or are Monster Munch crisps smaller these days??

Comment: Monster Munch are definately smaller and you don't get the bits of "flavour" in them like you used to!! Asda do a great range of pickled onion flavour snacks though that are really strong & yummy! I also really like the Baked Bean flavour - but really similar to the tomato ketchup as previously mentioned....

Comment: Baked Bean flavour are far tastier than the tomato ketchup ones! Maybe a campaign for larger Monster Munch is called for?! ;-)

Comment: I'm with you all the way on that one Dudley!!! I remember when the pickled onion ones were huge and in red packets and the beef ones were in yellow packaging! Really showing my age!!
