Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Lights Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper Confirmed sighting: Walkers Lights Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper
Posted: 21:03 Tue 13-Feb-2007. Price: 1.09 for 6 multipack. Location: Tesco, Plymouth. Nutritional unusualness: 115 calories/ 5.3g of fat per bag.
"Magnetic Ham Sandwich" reports: After a slow start to 2007, Walkers have added a fourth flavour to their rebranded Lights range of reduced fat crisps. The new flavour - Salt and Pepper - is pleasant enough but not really going to change the world. The last time a fourth Lites flavour arrived - Honey Glazed Ham - it was quite short lived so if you're a Salt and Pepper fan let's hope these stay around a little longer. Maybe one day Walkers will add this flavour to their standard range of crisps, but even if they don't these crisps are a suitable alternative. Now Lights fans have a fourth flavour to choose from I wonder how long it will be before the very successful Baked range will be similarly extended?

...In other sources of sodium, I've just found an old message from "ant", confirming: Purchased the last two packets of salt and vinegar Pepperidge Farm Finz in Quedgeley Tescos. Barcode on shelf read "discontinued line". Sorry to give the bad news. Well, maybe they needed shelf-space for the rumoured Valentine's Day '07 return of Tyrrells' Strawberry, Sweet Chilli and White Wine crisps - to compete with Sainsbury's pioneering Valentine's Sweet Pizza which, with any luck, should be half-price or less by Thursday.

Comment: On the subject of crisps, Kettle Chips are returning with a new flavour "Mexican Limes with Chilli" in March and will release a new flavour of their Crispy Bakes range, "Salt & Malt Vinegar" as well.

Comment: I see the Kettle Crispy Bakes are onto their third style of packaging already since their launch last year. I've had the Tomato, Basil & Green Peppercorns flavour and the Mild Cheese with Sweet Onion flavour in the new style bags so far.

And takling of new style bags, I saw brand new designs of Monster Munch, French Fries and Square Crisps multipacks in Asda last Saturday, so maybe Walkers haven't been as quiet in 2007 as I first thought.

Comment: I have seen the new design walkers snacks (french fries and wotsits) in waitrose. They are a new design because they are using sunseed oil, which is healthier apparently!

Comment: In reply to EW (above) the Kettle Lime one you mention - this could be the new Crinkle Tangy Salsa in Asda only (bright green pack?)

Tyrrells DO have the excellent Chilli, Strawberry and White Wine Chips out again for Valo's Day - spotted yesterday!

Comment: Sticky Egg Toastie - I got the news about the new Kettle Chips flavour from an e-mail their website sent me. They said they're aren't in the shops until next month. Didn't know about the new flavour of the crinkle range, they sound nice.

Comment: I prefer the Walkers Baked to these.
