Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Sausage and Heinz Tomato Ketchup crisps Confirmed sighting: Walkers Sausage and Heinz Tomato Ketchup crisps
Posted: 19:48 Thu 07-Jul-2005. Price: 50p. Location: Skypark, Glasgow. Sub-flavours: Chicken and Heinz BBQ Sauce; Classic Heinz Tomato Ketchup. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"aerisdead" reports: I really can't honestly work out what is so special about these crisps that they're limited edition and released with much fanfare (well, uh, an eye-catching packet). It certainly can't be new flavour technology, because the Heinz tomato ketchup flavour tastes like... every other kind of tomato ketchup crisps. These ones smell far more strong than they taste, and the sausage flavour, well... it's barely a hint, making the size of the text for "Sausage" on the packet a bit misleading. Boring!

..."aerisdead" here confirms "Stuart's" previous suspicions - while, in other ostensibly-upmarket updates: the Yorkshire Crisp Company are producing tins of "sour cream, dill and mustard" crisps specially designed to go with smoked salmon and champagne; though "Andy Heer" neglected to provide a pic of the latest addition to the growing apple-based snack market - the Apple Snapz he apparently paid 50p for in "Health food store, Perth", enthusing: These are like crisps only they are made of apple - nothing else! No added preservatives, no flavourings, just apple. Apparently the small amount of fat present comes from the natural wax in the apple peel. They're great, you can eat them all day and not get fat.

Comment: You must have been unlucky. The ones I just bought are distinctly sausagey, and really nice.

Comment: I rather liked the Sausage and Tomato ones. How do they compare with the Golden Wonder ones for you Stuart?

But the Barbecue Chicken oens... remind me of something else :D

Comment: These crisps are on offer now in Woolies. Either 4 standard size bags for £1, or a 6 bag multipack of the smaller size bags for 89p. The Sausage & Tom flavour is quite nice and sausagey. The Chicken & BBQ flavour sadly tastes virtually the same as Walkers existing Barbecue flavour. And of course the Tom Ketchup flavour is exactly the same as Walkers already make, just in a different bag. I can't see the point of inventing flavours that are so similar to those already produced.

Also Walkers-related though, it's nice to see their Worcester Sauce flavour is back on the shelves after the Sudan 1 food dye scare. The packs proudly proclaim 'New Recipe' in big letters across the top, and the taste is different. It's less tangy than it used to be, and better for it.

Comment: the chicken and bbq crisps are sublime. there is indeed a subtle chicken flavour underneath - sometimes i find the barbeque crisps overwhelming. Good show, walkers!

Comment: These crisps have a very even balance. You can taste the Sausage and the Tomato and none of them overpower each other. The Chicken crisps in the series taste nice aswell. They taste more of a sweet Chicken but not hot like the McCoys Thai Sweet Chicken. The Tomato ones in the series have a tangy "Tangy Toms" taste.

Comment: Sorry but these are minging... the best sausage flavour crisps were the postman pat ones. I don't like tomato... why couldn't they bring out a sausage flavour one? Or a cheeseburger one? The only cheeseburger flavour crisps I'm aware of are Red Mill Quarterbacks.

Comment: Golden Wonder did a Flame Grilled Cheeseburger flavour crisp for a while back in 1997. But for flavours of the past nothing can top the Chocolate flavour Tudor Crisps produced back in 1992.

Comment: All 3 varieties piled up at 10p a bag in Hyper Value [and no doubt other cheap shops up and down the country] already. Alongside the 6 bag multipacks of Walker's Lites Honey Roast Ham flavour for 50p by the way.

Comment: I'm not keen on the sound of tomato ketchup flavoured crisps - i prefer the real thing. I heard recently that Heinz have their own tomato vineyards where they grow the tomatoes for their ketchup. Apparently they grade them like grapes for winemaking. This way they can account for every tomato they produce and regulate the flavour - could be the reason that the taste has remained consistent over the years, like Coca-Cola or KFC - traditional flavours that everyone loves. I'm not sure though - where would these vineyards be? America?

Comment: They're not the same as the Spicy Sausage Walkers from the 80's. I remember when they came out and everyone thought it was completely mad to have a sausage flavour crisps. All you had then was the big three and maize based snacks that were cheese flavoured. That was it.

Comment: At last, the Worcester Sauce Walker has made a long awaited come back... !!
