Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder Ringos Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder Ringos
Posted: 20:08 Tue 14-Sep-2004. Price: 69p/ variety six-pack. Location: Sainsbury's, Bath. Sub-flavours: Salt'n'Vinegar, Cheese and Onion, Pickled Onion. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: This is a bit odd. Alert snacklovers may remember Ringos coming back a couple of years ago, but only in Cheese and Onion and in a puffed-up, luminous orange, greasy format that bore no resemblance whatsoever to the Ringos of years ago. These, however (whose individual packs are, incidentally, marked "Trial Price 20p") are classic-style skinny Ringos like you remember from your youth, and vastly superior for it. The Cheese and Onion are a bit pungent, but the other two flavours are sharp and tangy, and I think I'm going to nip out now and get some more in while they're cheap.

..."Stuart" here confirms the welcome previously extended by "Cameron" to this Golden Wonder retro favourite, but the "third force" in the UK crisps market - KP/ United Biscuits - aren't giving up just yet either, with a McCoy's Honey Roast Ham and Mustard variant, plus the special Halloween tie-in of Spooky Spice Skips. And, in rather meatier matters, Peperami are reported to be launching no less than 4 new sausage-based snacks sometime towards the end of September: the bread, sausage, tomato and cheese Peperami Sarni (99p); the "extra hot" Peperami Firestick (49p); "mini sticks with either tomato ketchup or BBQ dipping sauce" Peperami Dunkers (89p); plus balls of Peperami wrapped in soft bread going under the name of Canniballs (99p).
