In what may or may [hopefully] not prove a short term deal between budget high street chain Poundland and Walkers, a small run of Original flavours have been re-introduced. The packaging is virtually identical (transparent window apart) to the bags many remember from the 1960s. A broad colour coded bag with the famous logo of three blue and three red stripes. It has no good design features, but put it alongside all those on the shelves that have, and it will undoubtedly stand out.
Crack and tumble, mush and mumble. They were thinly cut and turned to mash straight away.
Pale yellow with a lot of oil blisters. They were thinly cut and rather transparent in places. There was some skin on edges.
These Crisps are among the oldest of this flavour in the world. It was therefore a rather emotional experience for us to taste test a piece of history for these pages. There was an instant reminder of childhood, but with more refined Chips and Crisps palates, it would be fair to say that there was a familiar and credible taste, but there was a slight imbalance - not so much Salt, but a certain over-balance of Malt Vinegar.
