Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder Rough Cuts Confirmed sighting: Golden Wonder Rough Cuts
Posted: 11:03 Sun 27-Nov-2011. Price: 50p. Location: News Shop, Leicester. Sub-flavours: Bang Bang Spicy Thai [tested], presumably other Tayto Rough Cuts Flavours (ie, Cheese and Onion, Salt and Vinegar, Chargrilled Steak).
Foodstuff Finds has been "missing [the] burn" in Levi's Caribbean Chilli Beef Grove Cut Crisps and UB/KP are replacing Pickled Onion in 6-packs of Nik Naks with our old friend, "stinky" Scampi'n'Lemon. But today's headliner is the ever-articulate "Nick T", who quips: "Everybody likes a little Thai, and everybody likes a little Bang Bang. Ladies and gentlemen, we are now entering the Benny Hill zone."


"I'm assuming Rough Cuts are a test product: well if there's space in the crowded adult end of the market for them, they may be onto a winner. For the past few years Golden Wonder have sadly lounged in the lunchbox/pocket-money snack space but maybe with the change of ownership - and I notice the contact address is Scunthorpe, often called The Athens Of The North - these ridged crisps are definitely moving into McCoy's territory, and 15p cheaper too."

"Taste-wise they're very, very similar to McCoy's recent excellent Ruck of Ribs, but not quite such a full-on flavour. There's a little more sourness and a lot more sweetness but still a very tasty crisp. The coating isn't very even though: occasionally you'll get one with hardly any seasoning at all, then you'll find the one with all the chilli. That could be seen as a big fail, but I just like to think of it as Thai Roulette. If you like a little Rough, these are well worth tracking down."

Comment: These are almost certainly one of my favourite 'crinkle cut', sweet and spicy and almost as good for me as Mccoys steak in the crinkle corner. looking forward to others in the range!!

Comment: I still haven't found the Bang Bang Spicy Thai flavour for sale anywhere around here, but Iceland sell 6 packs of the Cheese & Onion or Chargrilled Steak for just £1. Yum !!
