Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder Transform-A-Snack Spicy Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder Transform-A-Snack Spicy
Posted: 22:34 Sat 27-Aug-2011. Price: 99p for 6. Location: Waitrose, Fulham. Nutritional unusualness: 0.5g fibre, 5.2g fat, 12.3g carbohydrate, 0.17g sodium (per 20g pack).
"Simon Rugg" reports: Having spotted a bargain 6 packets for 1, this variant tastes like lightly spiced cheap crisps, with a hint of tommy k. Also answers once and for all the question of what would happen if you mixed Chipsticks with Space Raiders. Each pack contains [a?] crisp-shaped man as well as rings for wheels so you can, if you want to, create your own Sterling Moss-style racing car, resulting in minutes of fun.

...Cheers "Simon" - I've had a slight hitch with picture uploads recently so McCoy's Pickled Scrumion will have to wait for another sighting, but you could probably get stronger Scoville-scale scores from KP's Sweet Chilli Hula Hoops, Walkers' Mexican Fiery Sweet Chipotle Sensations, Subway's possibly on-limited-trial Sag Paneer Indian Sub, or the Spicy BBQ version of Blue Diamond Almonds which Zeddy paid 1.99 for in Lanark Tesco, quipping: Do you like your nuts? Do you like them spicy? Then you will love Blue Diamond's almond range. I first discovered them in the USA on holiday and now they have come to our shores. Almonds are a far more refined nut than your common peanut and the different flavours added to this range compliments them perfectly. The BBQ ones have habanero in them, whilst the Wasabi version has soy sauce to add a bit of saltiness. Perfect and good for you too! All that vitamin E (12.5 mg per 50g) helps the skin. Try telling that to your partner when they refuse your nuts.

Comment: I've tried the Mexican Fiery Sweet Chipotle Sensations and any "heat" is so faint it may as well not be there at all. The overwhelming taste is of sweet tomato. They're okay I suppose if you have a sweet craving. There's no wasabi flavour either Zeddy, in case you're wondering.

Comment: No, but there is a smoked goats cheese and chilli.

Comment: But Spicy Transform-a-Snacks aren't new and exciting - they have been around since the beginning of time! (Well, since I was a kid, anyway.) Pretty damn tasty, mind you. Pickled Scrumion McCoys are rubbish though.
