Confirmed sighting: Tayto Today's Special Ulster Fry flavour crisps
Posted: 18:24 Sun 16-Oct-2011. Price: 20p. Location: B and M Bargains, East Kilbride.
Zeddy reports: B and M and their
bargain European acquisitions! What the heck is Ulster Fry? Well,
"A traditional Ulster Fry consists of bacon rashers, eggs, sausages (either pork or beef), vegetable roll, white pudding, black pudding or lamb's kidney, fried tomato, the farl form of soda bread (the farl is split in half crossways to expose the inner bread and then fried with the exposed side down), boxty or potato bread and wheaten farl. Other common components include mushrooms, baked beans or pancake."
Thanks Wiki - so, anyhow, these are reminiscent of Golden and Wonder's Sausage and Tomato variety. Good old-fashioned crisps with a traditional flavour from the UK's one-time crisp manufacturer. Oh, and STILL no Pringle Pickled onion flavour.
...And speaking of traditional flavours, Tyrrell's Proper Popcorn includes a Sour Cream and Jalapeno Chilli variety - you know, just like your local fleapit cinema used to sell in the "good old days". That said, the chilli isn't that prominent in the mix compared to, say, Mackie's Scotch Bonnet crisps ("Weren't as hot as Barry Norman's Hot and Spicy Pickled Onions" - Foodstuff Finds), and
Seabrook's Hot and Spicy Desi Curry ("Good crisps, and I would be totally raving about them if I didnít have the prior knowledge that the 2 Chilli ones are superior" - ibid.)

Comment: I spied these taking up some shelf space in B&M Bargains store in North Manchester shopping city and naturally bought a few bags to try for a low cost price of 25p (as all single crisp packets should be still priced at!)
The packaging was enticing and eye catching and I enjoyed the logo and shiny exterior. I have sampled Tayto crisps before and enjoyed the generousity of the portion size and these were no exception as this felt heavier than a bag of McCoys.
I was expecting a bacony n tomatoey breakfast combination similar to other brands that have served up breakfast flavours but these were slightly spicery than I was expecting. Some crips were coated in reddish brown flavouring and others were plain looking but thick golden potatoes nevertheless and one bag is very filling.
They did not wow me and I was not rushing back for more handfuls I just took my time eating them. Crisps should rarely be wasted in my view or fed to birds if not fully enjoyed.
I do not think I will be rushing back to buy them but the taste did grow on me after the last few mouthfuls.
Im hoping the store or indeed the Uk will start selling the other wonder flavours in the standard size and texture range as they really are tremendous. Asda in the Worlds food aisle have started selling multi bags of Tayto cheese n onion *(very strong please note) and a variety pack of mixed flavours and they are a welcome change to Walkers. Go try them!
