Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Max Cheese-Burger flavour Confirmed sighting: Walkers Max Cheese-Burger flavour
Posted: 14:00 Sun 18-Oct-2009. Price: 60p. Location: Newsagents.
A triple helping of crisps today, crunched up into small pieces so you can't take them all in one go - "Fishface" doesn't add too much to our previous Walkers Max coverage with the admission that: "I haven't tried these yet, so the most I can offer without being a complete snack nerd about it is that they are in a yellow [version] of the usual packaging." "I kid you not, I saw them, but I never bought them for some reason, but McCoy's have released a Sizzling King Prawn flavour of their crisps, want proof, well, you should see them soon hopefully..." adds "Marc Carran" of Southport, while Turkey and Onion Gravy and Extra Special Pigs in Blankets (1 for 150g, Arnold Nottingham) are among Asda's Christmas offerings according to "Laura Martin" who, regarding the Pigs in Blankets, reports: "Sausage wrapped in bacon it says on the packet but I couldn't taste much bacon. Reminded me of sausage flavour Pringles."

...Bafflingly, Walkers have added not-very-seasonal Sea Salt and Cracked Peppercorn, or English Cheddar and Red Onion to their Red Sky range - and, in other burger-based urges, McDonald's seem to have replaced the recently-revived M Burger with a Caramel McFlurry, Little Tex Mex, Garlic and Herb Chicken Snack Wrap and maybe the Big Tasty again? Subway also appear to have ditched their summertime Reggae Reggae Chicken Sub in favour of a pepperoni-packed Chicken Pizziola - though I hope it's not as much of a letdown as this Tesco Fish Fingers and Ketchup sandwich that I (over)paid 1.55 for yesterday in Golders Green.

Comment: re Subway- here in Manchester we have a New Yorker sub, not the Chicken Pizzaola.

I quite like the Cheese-burger crisps, I guess it would be difficult to get them tasing 'beefy' without getting into Beef & Onion /BBQ beef territory

Comment: Ref Zeddy's comment, I'm currently in Guangzhou, China, where Pringles are available in 'Screaming Dill Pickle' flavour at the Seven-11. Unfortunately they're also 20RMB/two quid a tube so I'll be darned if I'm spending that much on something which I'd never get past the crone in expenses and which sounds horrible anyway. Sorry folks!

Comment: They look nice, I'll keep an eye out.

(OFFTOPIC)Question! Is this site still ran by the same person from 2003/4? Just curious ;) ♥ the original bob ;)

Comment: Yes "Bob", still here - though I think some of the regular contributors may have shifted over the years, a bit like the lineup of the Sugababes?

Comment: Great news to hear! (I saw new(?) Cherry Lucozade in Morrirsons [6 Pack currently half price, £1.7?] yesterday and it made me rememeber here). Haha, guess so yes, re: Sugababes, does make me wonder if my dear friend Alex is still about though! (lol) Oh and on that note, well I apologize for my duo userdays, it's embarrassing reading back the comments. I have, thankfuly, grown up now, however my love for new snacks and such remains, so I shall be around again. Oh, sorry for offtopic again lol.

Comment: just spotted these in a machine - was not particularly hungry but zomg cheeseburger flavour crisps? how could I not. Unfortuantely all I can really pick up is pickle. slightly disappointing.

Comment: just tried these and they are pretty good (but for me the best bit of a cheeseburger is the pickles anyway). a little bit cheesy and and mostly pickly. yum!

Comment: My husband and I both liked these and thought they tasted quite a lot like a Burger King burger - which admittedly isn't that meaty but more chargrilled flavour, and we could taste pickle and ketchup too.
