Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Sensations Pan-Fried Sausage and Sage/ German Tomato and Mozzarella Pringles Confirmed sighting: Walkers Sensations Pan-Fried Sausage and Sage/ German Tomato and Mozzarella Pringles
Posted: 12:02 Wed 27-Oct-2004. Price: 45p. Location: Mo's 24-hour store, Glasgow. Nutritional unusualness: Ingredients include "pork powder" and "animal rennet".
"Eldridge Cleaver" reports: "Seasonal Edition". A bit more sausagey than Golden Wonder's Sausage and Tomato. Delicate Sage notes are lost a bit in monosodium-glutamate overkill. Quite good.

...A terse sighting here from first-time spotter "Eldridge" - which sadly fails to address previous Snackspot controversy over their pretentious "Pan fried" nature (my personal theory: perhaps they're fried by - or in accordance with the teachings of - Pan, the ancient Roman god of wildlife and fertility). In other savoury snippets: Mature Brie and Cranberry, Mature Cheddar and Burgundy, and Roquefort and French Onion are this Christmas' new Kettle Chips limited editions, though The Grocer adds that they'll also be doing a more conventionally flavoured "Crinkle Cut" selection specifically for Asda customers put off by the "exotic" allure of their usual range; and international Pringles playboy "Marc" has added some German Tomato and Mozzarella Pringles to his online gallery, noting: The resourceful Pringles-guys in their secret Belgium flavour-bunker have done it again: yet another instalment of the "World Tour" stackable crisps. This time it's Tomato and Mozzarella Flavour (yes, since the last World Tour flavour - Feta - they finally admitted that they use FLAVOURS instead of the real deal). It tastes very tomato-ish which is a good thing. But why they had to mention the Mozzarella bit is beyond me. I also wonder what's next. Turkish Doner Kebab flavour? Chinese Dog flavour? Idaho Spuds flavour? African deep fried crickets flavour? Scottish Haggis flavour? (Note: all "flavours" as no actual ingredients are used.)

Comment: I found these crisps to be like all the other Sensations flavours - very disappointing. What little attempt at flavour there is is lost in the overly crunchy nature of the crisps. Perhaps the 'pan-frying' takes away a lot of the taste.

If you want a more satisfying taste, look out for the new Cumberland Sausage flavour in Marks & Spencers excellent 'Double Crunch' range of crisps. A spicy, oniony initial taste fades away to leave a strong mustardy aftertaste in your mouth. Very nice. They're in the packs with the blue stripe on the front. The other new flavour in the same range, Chipolte Chilli has a yellow stripe on the pack, and a strong chilli kick in the mouth.

Loads and loads of new crisp flavours out right now by the way. I especially enjoyed Tyrrells Asparagus and Black Pepper [just like having creamy asparagus in your mouth], and Tesco Temptations Roast Turkey, Herb Stuffing and Parsnip flavour [like roast chicken with a parsnip overtone.] Seabrooks now do an Unsalted variety in their Straight Cut range at 26p a bag incidentally. Avoid the 3 new 150G Tayto Fusion Pure Indulgence flavours that have appeared in Kwik Save stores though - the flavours are not very strong, and the crisps are small and curly making them hard to eat more than one at a time.

Lastly - this may or may not be news to anyone, but Pringles World Tour Latin Pepper flavour are on sale in places like Farm Foods and Poundzone shops. Grey tubes with red and white checks on the bottom. The pepper taste is very mild compared to some other salt and pepper crisps.

Comment: "what's next. Turkish Doner Kebab flavour?"

Morrisons currently have Doner Kebab flavour available in their own-brand crisps range, 99p or so for a six-pack. They're pretty good.

Comment: "German Tomato and Mozzarella flavour"? Doubleyou Tee Eff??? Are German tomatoes world renowned for their unique flavour or something?

Oh, no, hang on... i get it. Which country's cuisine do you always think of when someone mentions tomato and mozzarella? - Germany. Of *course*. Ermm...

I guess they must have already assigned Singapore to the forthcoming "bratwurst and sauerkraut" flavour.

Comment: (at!) Daveybaby: No no no, 'Tomato & Mozzarella Flavour' isn't German, it just happened to be bought in Germany! Mr. Pringles is wearing a straw hat with a green and a red ribbon attached. So it must look Italian.

Comment: Tried these yesterday on my hours break at work. Very disapointing. They don't even taste like I expect a sausage to taste like. They had that vinegary taste like prawn cocktail and fish & chip french fries do. Actaully tasted like the bland turkey & paxo flavour with I bit of sharpness thrown in there. I definately do not recommend buying them and I will not get them again.

Comment: (at!) Marc : Phew - so its just a thread mislabelling by snackspot. Boody amateurs. I'm releived that once again all is back to normal in the world of regional food-based stereotypes.

Comment: Daveybaby - you don't think my 'Scottish Haggis' suggestion would be considered a regional food-based stereotype?

Comment: The big bags are already piled up at 2 for £1 in Jack Fultons stores. Even then I wasn't moved to make a purchase - another disappointing flavour from Walkers.

Comment: I've been buying them from Jack Fultons and Home Bargains. The pan fried sausage ones taste and smell like the original Walkers chicken flavour crisps. The Mint & Lamb Sensations are bloody gorgeous though.

Comment: Saw the Mature Brie and Cranberry crisps in Sainsburys but didn't buy...I don't like either.

Comment: I tried all of theses flavours and hated them all- so I magically changed them to sweaty toad flavour, mmmmm.....

Comment: I agree, that sweaty toad flavour was delicious wasn't it Harry?

Comment: Although these ones were disapointing, I thought the Honey Roast Ham ones were very nice though. They smell just just like the ham that was being cooked at home. I'll have to try the steak ones too. They sound nice.

Comment: I must have Steak again....only had them once...I also haven't yet seen the Sausage and Sage ones 21225 7
