This could get confusing. This is a taste comparison of the old but now new Monster Munch vs the new but now old Monster Munch...
Old New - VS - New Old Everybody with me so far?
Walkers re-introduced the Monster Munch from the 70s and 80s which is bigger (both in terms of snack size and packet size) and has the old style characters. Let’s call this Monster Munch Retro.
Still available though is the more modern smaller style, available in multi-packs, lets call this Monster Munch Small.
Retro - VS - Small
Two packets of Monster Munch in pickled onion flavour were purchased... And a Monster Munch expert was hired, (his anonymity is being kept to protect him from potential fans, think of him like you would the Stig, but call him Spectre!).
The packets were tested and re-tested by the expert who assured me there were obvious taste differences. Just to be certain of both the expert’s skills and taste buds, a blind test also took place. (Using smaller broken pieces, so as not to give anything away from the size). I can report that the expert could successfully tell the difference and passed the test.
And now the results are in...
The expert stated that the Small Monster Munch had more flavour and were tastier, but that the Monster Munch Retro did have the better crunch. If pushed for an over all winner, Monster Munch Small won the day! An unexpected result!
The expert then finished off both bags... What a trooper!
