Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Deep Ridged Confirmed sighting: Walkers Deep Ridged
Posted: 18:31 Sat 15-Sep-2012. Location: Tesco, Hayes (and currently 1/ multipack in Sainsbury). Sub-flavours: Ready Salted, Cheese and Onion, Salt and Vinegar, Grilled Steak.
Walkers' bare-faced attempts to dominate all crisp categories continue - these are currently co-existing with last year's Walkers Crinkles and the more recent Walkers Ruffles, although additionally feature, as "Allan" reports, "Massive ridges like I've never seen before!" According to "Allan", Tesco Hayes also had Walkers Extra Crunchy in "At last some new flavours. New packaging design too," (specifically, Cheese and Red Onion, or King Prawn Cocktail) - presumably a Walkers Deeply Crunchy Ruffley range can't be far behind.

...There's no arguing with the potent flavours of the Deep Ridgeds, though I wondered if they'd been extruded Pringles-style from potato dough, as the surface texture is like KP Skips? In other substantial savouries: I was pleased to see some branches of Greggs The Baker joining the pre-prepared hot sandwich wars with these reasonably priced baguettes (usually not much more than 2, even in central London) - plus I'd just like to pay tribute to the sadly no-longer-updated Gobble Monkey blog that specialised in Percy Pig (and other snack) news. The mint that tastes twice as extra strong, burns only half as extra long, Gobble Monkey - and you have tasted so very, very strongly, come back soon!

Comment: I enjoyed the cheese & onion variety -- almost as generous with the flavourings as Seabrooks or XL. And at £1 for six bags in Morrisons at the moment it'd be rude to refuse.

Comment: Couldn't you tell that from the weight of the pack Pete? It's feather-light. Not worth buying.
