Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kettle Chips Red Thai Curry Confirmed sighting: Kettle Chips Red Thai Curry
Posted: 23:06 Thu 04-Sep-2008. Price: 1.59. Location: Tesco, Rugby. Nutritional unusualness: "Contains smoke flavouring".
"Nick T" reports: Ah, Thailand. Let me whisk you off now to wonder at the bustling street markets, the restful gilded wats, and smiling, gracious people. None of which you will find as we return with a disappointing thump to the cousin-marrying flatlands of Far East Anglia, where we can only imagine the frustration of Norwich's industrial chemists who have packed no fewer than 32(!) ingredients into this exotic new flavour, only for it to taste overwhelmingly of lemon and chilli. Be patient and you'll discover a powerful garlic aftertaste which you only realise with deep regret much later; a feeling familiar to anyone who has woken up sober next to last night's charming Phuket waitress only to realise she also has an Adam's apple.

All the Eastern promise is there, and it's a joyfully attractive crisp which marries deep russet colour with intriguing gold and scarlet flecks of spice. If only they could tone the lemon down a bit this could be one of Kettles' best flavours, but as it stands sadly it's as authentic as a Bangkok Rolex.

..."Nick T" returns with his most evocative sighting yet - while, in rather more carnivorous innovation: I can't wait for Wes's analysis of Burger King's brand-new Hideous Meaty Bastard, and the sun appeared to be setting on Zeddy's tube of Pringles Sizzzzling Sausage flavour (1.09, Morrisons, East Kilbride, Scotland), as he continued his ongoing vendetta with the news that: "I was in looking for Alan Hansen or Lulu to kick their a**e for those awful adverts when I came across these. The store security kicked me out for being a dirty pervert. Ok, ok, I saw these on the shelf with the 'Exclusive Flavour' tag line. Quite spicy too, they are. You certainly need a drink after a few of these if for no other reason than the saltiness."

Comment: Those sausage flavoured Pringles are actually damned good.

Comment: Can't submit a picture as I'm at work and don't have any of these with me to show, but Pringles Select have shown up in my local Scotmid for £1 a pack. Although possibly not the exact names the flavours are - Itallian Cheese with a hint of Garlic, Sea Salt with Balsamic Vinegar, Szechuan Barbecue, and Thai Sweet Chilli. They're all pretty good flavours, and come about the Pringles are about the same size as the pringles in the Tubes of Mini Pringles, so you're getting more flavour per pack. Each bag is also £150g so at the offer price of a £1 a pack its a good deal. I'm in Scotland, in the Edinburgh area, so other Scotmid's nearby should have this offer too.
