Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Sensations Jalapeno And Sour Cream Corn Chips with Poppy Seeds Confirmed sighting: Walkers Sensations Jalapeno And Sour Cream Corn Chips with Poppy Seeds
Posted: 21:51 Thu 13-Dec-2007. Price: 2 for 2 (all non-potato-crisp Sensations). Location: Morrisons, Bradford. Nutritional unusualness: The usual "60% less saturated fat" Walkers claim (referring to the oil).
"Ronnie DiMarco" reports: I was shopping in Morrisons, looking for some McCoy's Tortillas, but these caught my eye when all I could find was Cool Ranch flavour. I ate the Sweet Chilli and Coriander ones I also picked up first, mistakenly thinking that these would be nicer, but in comparison to their non-limited-edition brethren, I found these to be dull and tasteless. They are vaguely reminiscent of the Original Dorito and moreso the Pepper and Sour Cream Sunbites. Jalapeno maybe just doesn't come out well in crisp flavours, but without the effect the fresh ones have on the tastebuds, these corn chips are a flop, although the pleasant poppy seed taste does make up for it slightly.

These would probably be fine with something else, such as a bowl of sour cream and jalapenos as the serving suggestion shows; if anything strengthening claims that there isn't much to them if it's suggested that you'll enjoy them more if you cover them with the two stronger tasting things that they are already supposed to taste of in the first place. There's always the "Divine with Wine" suggestion as well; drink enough wine and you won't care what these (don't) taste of. Either way I wouldn't suggest they are particularly edible on their own, so with Morrisons' 2 for 2 at the moment, if you're going to give them a try, combine the offer with an existing flavour.

..."Ronnie" expands on the comments of the ever-observant "Magnetic Ham Sandwich" - speaking of BOGOFs, I'm still marvelling at how much nicer the Japanese Teriyaki Nobby's Nuts are compared to the Hot Indonesian Spices variety (2.99 for 2 x 200g bags, Sainsbury), while "susan" gets in touch to inquire: "What happened to savoury vinegar crisps? I think they were by Smiths Crisps. My mouth is watering just thinking about them, after all these years the flavour is flooding back. Does anyone else remember them? Also Smokees? They were delicious."

Comment: Surely all vinegar crisps are savoury?

Comment: i loooooove these. ok they're not as highly flavoured as some other varieties but i think that's a GOOD thing. i'm sick of corn chips and crisps that have this yukky powder coating all over them. makes me think i'm eating powdered msg. at least these actually taste of corn, and poppy seeds. with a hint of fire from the chillies and a delicate sour cream flavour. (though it's fair to say that these probably also contain msg) really, what's there not to like?! i think they're almost as good as the turkish dorito's tomato and poppy version, seriously almost!
