Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nando's Peri Peri Chips Confirmed sighting: Nando's Peri Peri Chips
Posted: 22:41 Thu 20-Nov-2008. Price: 1.59. Location: Tesco. Sub-flavours: Peri Peri Chicken, Smokey BBQ Peri Peri, Hot Peri Peri.
Just before we get to the Nando's - the Lamb And Mint McCoy's Winter Warmers definitely taste of mint, but the Steak And Ale ones aren't as alcohol-flavoured as Tyrrells' new Dorothy Goodbody Ale and Mature Cheddar Cheese (themselves evocative of 2007's Kettle Chips Mature Cheddar with Adnams Broadside Beer). Anyway, I'm only slightly suspicious of "Charlotte Dewhurst" using the official Nando's Peri-Peri Chips product name, as she enthusiastically reports: "Tried these - they are amazing. I love Nando's and I love hand-cooked chips. These will be great for the Christmas party season!"

...In somewhat nuttier alternatives: KP have added a slightly disappointing Caramelised Onion, Balsamic Vinegar and Herbs Christmas-ish flavour to their previously-faultless Baked and Seasoned Nuts range (3.49/400g), but at least they weren't as weird as Passion Shed's Modena Way "Jumbo pecan nuts drizzled with real Italian Balsamic Vinegar and seasoned with a piquant Balsamic and Oregano seasoning" (2.79/175g in Waitrose).

And speaking of KP: "Hi, can anyone remember a snack that I think was made by KP - they were two savoury-filled wafers like a Twix packet with a creamy filling of cheese flavour and a bacon one I think like what you get in cheesy footballs?" "karen" inquires. "I can remember them being the best and this was late '80s/very early '90s. Help, it's driving me mad, oh and those crunchy crisps like hard Quavers - prawn cocktail packet was half pink and navy with the clear window and 10p, anyone remember them?"

Comment: Vinegar flavoured pecan nuts?! That's be more suited to cashews.

Comment: Got to try these before they hit the stores and new they'd go down well! Medium spice ones are deffinatly a winner!

Comment: Yes Karen, I remember the cheesy lattice snack bar thingies (if those are what you mean) They were incredibly fragile lattices of reformed potato and maize (the same stuff 'chipsticks' were made out of, but not quite as puffed up, filled with a slightly soft paste of cheese powder and what I now presume was hydrogenated fat.

I think they did chesse, cheese and onion and cheese and bacon varieties.

Two to a pack, and one pack definitely not enough.. Every few years I try and see if any of the cheesy footballs are anywhere near as good as they were, but have yet to find any. You don't know of any do you?

I've had a look around to see if I could see a wrapper or something, but failed so far. Even tv.cream.org didn't have any in it's archives. (go visit tvcream as they have loads of old stuff you might remember: http://tv.cream.org/ In the best before - snack attack section)

One thing I did find while there was a reference to Wickers (roast chicken) - What ever happened to those!! I'd forgotten completely about them until I read that.

Comment: These are good, but loaded with Salt, have they not heard of FSA Salt guidelines for 2010.

Comment: Love them! But they are hard to get hold of, most Tesco's near me have sold out completely. The medium BBQ ones are definately the nicest, and to me are much hotter than the hot ones.
