Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Warburtons Chippidy DooDaa Chilli Jack Pitta Chips Confirmed sighting: Warburtons Chippidy DooDaa Chilli Jack Pitta Chips
Posted: 11:10 Mon 03-May-2010. Price: 0.64. Location: Preston. Sub-flavours: Mature Cheese and Spring Onion; Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar; Sea Salt and Black Pepper (?). Nutritional unusualness: 0.5g sat fat, 2.4g sugar, 0.8g salt per 40g bag.
"Voodoo" reports: A new snack by the famous bread makers, Warburtons... The chilli flavour, and the unusual pitta-style crisp bought me. Not really spicy, just a cheeky hint, but they do possess a more authentic warm chilli taste compared to most snacks. Not tried the other flavours as they do not appeal to me.

...And well done to first-time spotter "Voodoo" for today's Bank Holiday sighting of this oddly elusive product (apparently available online, and accompanied by Snack A Doodle wholegrain snacks in Sweet Chilli or Cheddar Cheese and Onion, 53p). In other belated updates: McCoy's Sausage Striker and Chicken Winger World Cup Limited Editions should be in shops by now; it says "Made with Doritos" on Subway's new Melted Cheese Nachos (in accordance with Snackspot prophecy), but I didn't expect to see them tipped out of a scrunched-up Doritos bag in front of me; and they should have a bit on Antiques Roadshow for people like West Fife's "john mellon", who inquires: "I have a packet of Tudor Savoury Straws with a best before date of 05 OCT 85, twenty five years old. They are in excellent condition, just very dusty on the packet!! Any suggestions what I should do with them?"

Comment: I suspect these aren't made by Warburton's at all: I remember seeing identical pitta chips on sale in Sainsbury's about 18 months ago. Sadly can't recall the brand but they were well over two quid for a big bag. Not that I'd buy anything off Warburton's anyway, the company who cynically doubled bread prices when the price of flour increased... and now the wholesale price of flour is lower than two years ago? Not one penny off the price of bread. Profiteering scumbags.

Comment: Those Savoury Straws became a CDC product if I recall correctly. Get them on Ebay. Everybody else does it.

Comment: They won't be made by Warburtons, they aren't going to gamble on a snack launch with new kit investment in the first instance anyhow....

PS anyone noticed a load of new snacks in Aldi??

Comment: They are made by Warnurtons on site in Bolton. I know more than the average man seeing as I made the flavour for them.

Comment: pointless dry bread tasting snacks with pitiful stingy on the flavourings. warburtons if you are gonna do without the fat 'fried snack' components than at least go a bit mad with the flavourings!!

tried cheese and onion but did not finish the bag as they were very dry and dull(some swans ate the rest)and the salt n vin which were passaable if you are stuck crispless on a desert island but i still wont be rushin back...poor in my opinion.
