Awaiting sightings: Walkers Shots/ Spanish Salsa Pringles
Posted: 20:59 Sat 05-04-2003.
Today's issue of The Grocer magazine has the startling news that Curry Pringles are being replaced over the next month with a new "Spanish Salsa" flavour - be interesting to see how they make it different from the previous "Pizza" variant and the current "Paprika". On the same page, they've got details of the upcoming bite-sized sesame seed version of Jacob's Tuc biscuits (RRP 82p), plus Walkers Shots (RRP 27p) - "tiny ball-shaped snacks" tasting of Nicely Spicely or Banging BBQ. Apparently these can be "positioned next to the till" and "eaten one-handed", a feature believed to have "particular appeal" for the primary target audience of 10-20 year old males. Stop snickering. Here's hoping they don't get mixed up with the similarly positioned Halls Shotgum (RRP 49p, for Menthol Chill or Menthol Heat), which appears to be the first chewing gum to come in nicotine-replacement-style packaging.

Comment: Walkers Shots are on sale at the UFO (Union Food Outlet, oh my aching sides) at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, for 27p. Only Nicely Spicy flavour, I think. The box helpfully says "display next to your till" on it, and indeed has diagrams of someone pouring the crispy snacks into their mouth, one-handed. Not yet tried...

Comment: Straight out of Walkers R&D - these are probably like other shots (small round wotsits) that I've heard about only with different flavourings. They taste a bit like they've stolen some of the taste of spicey niknaks and some of the taste of those McCoys spicey crisps with possible meaty undertones.

Also spotted - Monster Munch Ice Cream Flavour (not tasted but described as monster munch but tasting 'a bit like those creamy boiled sweets').

Comment: Had a couple of bags of Shots at the weekend (one of each flavour). BBQ ones are the nicest. Haven't seen them in shops yet :(

Comment: I can't remember the exact addy its near the tesco. One half sells Canadian food the other half sells south african food. Of course canadian and US food is the same just some maple syrup thrown in for good measure.
