Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Seabrook Hot and Spicy Wasabi flavour Confirmed sighting: Seabrook Hot and Spicy Wasabi flavour
Posted: 23:02 Wed 15-Apr-2009. Price: 1.15. Location: Morrisons, Denton. Sub-flavours: Wasabi, Mustard, "Oriental", 2 Chilli. Nutritional unusualness: Has more horseradish powder than salt in the listed ingredients.
A quick post-Easter sighting this week, as "Dave" reports: Amazing. Neutral, not-crispy smell on opening the bag. Usual Seabrook thin crinkleyness to the crisps, and yet they pack a powerful hit of wasabi - noshing down on several crisps at a time will deliver a powerful emptying blow to the throat and nose, as wasabi should. Excellent! For what I believe to be the first adoption of wasabi by a British manufacturer (possibly any manufacturer), it's an excellent implementation, and couldn't have gone to a finer and more innovative portfolio than Seabrook. Recommended - hunt down and eat.

..."Dave" supplied the photo here, but Zeddy paid only a pound for the same product in East Kilbride Morrisons, trumpeting: "Found these buggers at last! I stumbled upon them quite by accident when I was looking at Red Sky crisps and wondering what all the fuss was about. These have a real wasabi flavour and cause your nose to tingle slightly upon consumption. Thumbs up from me for these." In other spicy surprises: Burger King's latest Texican Whopper is "topped with delicious taco coated chilli con carne, spicy jalapenos, onion, crispy lettuce and Cajun mayonnaise"; or, as a more oesophagus-soothing alternative, LanesHealth's Throat Coolers are "a range of flavoured ice bars" - in other words, vaguely medicinal ice pops!

Comment: Mmmm - our local Morrisons stocks the 2 Chilli variety but I couldn't even taste one chilli so I wasn't going to bother with Wasabi, but looking forward to trying these now!

Comment: Am eating my way through a packet of these after enjoying the oriental rib and mustard flavours. All three purchased at local-ish Asda.

Comment: Wasabi flavour is awesome. Best new flavour in a long time. Walkers have been messing around with their new launches but these beats all.

Comment: New flavours and more marketing gimmiks? They ruined the way the original ones were made... now they are thinner, poorly flavoured crisps - everyone that know how to make them must have left one night. Seabrooks used to be the ultimate champion amoungst crisps - now they have introduced the foil pack and you can't 'See What You Buy' they have gone all Walkers on us and have only a few crisps (more easily broken too due to the pack) rattling around in there - it's no longer 'more than a snack' as they used to proclaim - they've sold out - one more classic crisp variety that's been lost probably due to the big business pressure of trying to fit in with the supermarket game. Bollo :(

Comment: Imported to Manchester on a regular basis and taste tested. The results are Seasalt & Black Pepper, Wasabi, Mustard, 2 Chilli. The Red Sky West Country Bacon and Cream Cheese were consigned to the bin while they were half full. I wish they'd been empty
