Discos New Bacon Flavour (Sainsbury's)
Many thanks to DavidH who emailed me to let me know these crisps have become available.
Discos remind me of my school lunch boxes, and I don't think I've had any for years. It was nice then to buy them, and re-discover them. The new Bacon flavour is available in the multi-pack which comes with Salt and Vinegar and Cheese and Onion, so it is good to experience more items in the range too.
The first thing I noticed was that on the back of the packet they are described as 'crunchy snacks' not 'potato snacks' a quick look at the ingredients list reveals the reasoning and it is because they contain a substantial amount of wheat too. This wheat does give them a lovely wholesome texture that seems to make them quite moreish. The flavour itself is smoky, salty and meaty and really does the job. A lovely new addition to the Discos range, and I’m looking forward to re-experiencing the original flavours.
