Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Jamaican Jerk Chicken 'New Limited Edition' crisps Confirmed sighting: Walkers Jamaican Jerk Chicken 'New Limited Edition' crisps
Posted: 09:38 Mon 31-Aug-2009. Price: 1.01/93p for multipack of 6 x 25g. Location: Sainsbury's, St Andrews Square, Edinburgh/ Sainsbury's, Islington. Nutritional unusualness: 8.2g of fat, of which 0.6g is saturated, and 1.1g of sugar per pack.
Apparently McCoy's are bringing back their Pub Grub range in the form of Lamb and Mint or Roast Beef and Horseradish varieties, and parent company United Biscuits are also relaunching Roast Beef and Mustard Mr Brannigan's . But those awaiting the answer to whether "Phill and Sharon" ever found anything to eat in Edinburgh will have to be content with the news that they found these Jamaican Jerk Chicken Walkers "whilst popping into Sainsbury's for something for dinner. Apparently they're exclusive to Sainsbury's. Only saw them in multi-bags."

...For more on the actual flavour, I refer you to either "Magnetic Ham Sandwich" or today's picture-provider "Nigel D", who "can only presume that Walkers are trying to hang on the coat tails of the current Levi Roots/Reggae Reggae Sauce inspired fad for 'Caribbean' flavours. Anyway, these were actually very pleasant. Opening the pack the aroma was reminiscent of Nice 'n' Spicy Nik Naks, though somewhat milder."

"My initial reaction to the flavour was that there were hints of Walkers' attempt at Onion Bhaji flavour earlier in the year. However, as I worked my way through the bag the overall flavour was very similar to standard Roast Chicken but a bit more lemony. Quite how this taste came from a set of flavourings including chilli, ginger and thyme I'm not sure, but I'm not going to worry myself over the mystery."

"Overall, the flavour was pretty good and there was a nice fizz of spice on the tongue. These were better than any of the 'Give Us A Flavour' offerings and if I had my way, Walkers would keep making these rather than the Builder's Breakfast malarkey."

Comment: Put a blindfold on when eating these and you could easily confuse them with Barbeque flavour - there's a nice smokey texture to them. That's the old paprika-based Barbeque flavour I'm on about, not the current soy sauce-based BBQ travesty Walkers try to sell us these days.

Comment: They're quite pleasant. Initial citric acid hit gives a fizzing lemon taste, then the mild chili, finishing with the minor ingedients such as clove and mustard oil.

Comment: I couldn't find a blindfold so I used my gimp mask instead. These are nice enough, but there was something very familiar about them. BBQ Pringles crossed with Scampi & Lemon Nik Naks perhaps? There was a slight taste of rubber too but I think that's my problem, not theirs.

Comment: To end Sharon and My dinner quest story, yes we did get something for dinner. We ended up buying the bits to make nachos. Anyway I wasn't to enamoured with this flavour of crisps and are enjoying the ID3 Doritos and Cheese and Chili Pringles. Not at the same time obviously.

Comment: Jingle Bells !! Walkers festive Turkey & Stuffing flavour crisps are back on the shelves at Sainsburys. The best before date is 21/11/09 though, so you will need to 'gobble' them all up long before Santa comes calling...

Comment: Is Drambuie the one that tastes like cough mixture? My nan used to have a nip of that at Christmas. Go party girl!

Comment: I have eaten 12 of the 15 new flavours for the Flavour Cup - my faves are the ones Walkers have produced before - Spag Bol and Roast Beef. Unimpressed by the Kangaroo and Edam though. Not seen the Irish, Welsh or Scottish flavours anywhere yet..
Posted: 17:41 Thu 08-Apr-2010 by Zeddy # permalink comment
Comment: I like the Edam ones and the garlic bread.

Comment: The South African Chutney flavour is okay: quite sweet and similar to Kettle Chips' Chutney flavour. The Japanese Chicken Teriyaki has an almost authentic teriyaki taste, and I don't say that very often about crisps. A bit like a cross between roast chicken and beef - but nicer than that sounds, I'm pleased to say. The research continues...

Comment: Nick, I heard the Chutney Farmers have been working overtime to get the orders out.

Comment: Really?? Omigod! Won't somebody think of the children?! I tried the BBQ Kangeroo last night. I've absolutely no idea what kangeroo tastes like, so who knows if it's even close? Unlike the old Hedgehog crisps of course which were totally authentic.
