Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Tyrells Strawberry, Sweet Chilli and White Wine Lovely Chips Confirmed sighting: Tyrells Strawberry, Sweet Chilli and White Wine Lovely Chips
Posted: 15:26 Sun 14-Feb-2010. Price: 1.69/150g. Location: Waitrose, Finchley Road. Nutritional unusualness: Contains strawberry powder, white wine powder, chilli powder, dried red peppers.
Snackspot reports: Kraft have stuck some vaguely Valentine-related incentive on their still-kicking-around-after-Christmas Tobelles, McDonald's have revived the Wispa McFlurry, and - you'll have to take my word on this as I didn't get a picture - Mr Kipling has produced a box of Fondest Fancies. But this was the year when I finally tracked down Tyrells' long-rumoured Strawberry, Sweet Chilli and White Wine variety - in practice, I could hardly detect any of those flavours (compared to other alcohol-based crisps), but at least Tyrells are keeping up a Great British tradition of potentially-misjudged romantic tie-ins going back as far as 2008's Marmite With a touch of Champagne and beyond. And if you find any madder Valentine's products reduced to clear over the next few days - well, that's exactly what today's Comments section is for.

...In other, less salacious savouries, a recent visit to the Old Kent Road Tesco yielded: some acceptably semi-fruity Reggae Reggae Peanuts and Cashews (99p/90g); these similar to Red Sky's Sun-Pat Crunchy Clusters (1.49/150g); plus what seems to be an entirely different range of Kettle Ridge Crisps to the Crinkle (or "Wave") cut ones still sold in Asda. Elsewhere, "premium nut company" Dormen are diversifying into luxury handmade crisps (in Lightly sea salted, Chardonnay wine vinegar, Cheddar and caremelised onion, or Sweet chilli and lime, around 70p/40g), but you can at least rely on McCoy's to aim more at the Bacon Sizzler end of the market.

Comment: Nice to see Tyrrell's have seen sense and started calling them crisps at last. (And sorry about the fire).
