REAL Crisps – Roast Ox (Vending Machine, Birmingham Bullring)
These crisps caught my eye in a vending machine at the Bullring, as I don’t think that I have seen them before. In texture they are a little bit thicker than a Walkers crisp, but still relatively light and easy to eat. They had a good full meaty flavour that was reminiscent of roast beef. The only negative thing about these crisps is that they were a little bit saltier than I was expecting, and as such they don’t quite beat Walker Beef and Onion for my taste buds.
Having done a little internet research I have found that REAL have got a variety of flavours out at the moment, including Spicy Jalapeno which I will keep my eye out for. REAL is part of the Tayto group, so if any Irish readers try some, I’d love to know what they think!
