Frank Roast Dinner [Crisps] (Walkers) [By @cinabar]


Walkers have got together with four comedians to create some new flavours – especially for Comic Relief. First up we have Frank Skinner’s Roast Chicken Dinner. I have to confess, Walkers Chicken are indeed one of my favourite flavours of crisps, so I had high hopes for these, and I was not to be disappointed.
Each crisp has the usual light Walkers texture, making it nice and easy to munch, but still with a decent amount of potato taste coming through.
The flavour is very much meaty and that of chicken, and it had a rich gravy essence on them too. There is an aftertaste which is salty, buttery and very herby (which seems to have hints of thyme) that gives the meatiness a good depth of flavour. In fact the herby aftertaste represents the stuffing remarkably well, and I was pleased to see that the crisps themselves are sprinkled with green specks of dried herbs. As a fan of chicken flavour crisps these certainly worked for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed their flavour. The other new tastes have a lot to contend with, but I’m still very much looking forward to trying them!

The con carne ones seem the closest to the flavour intended.

Ace- not tried them yet - but I have a bag. They sound the most different to regular flavours too. I'm also worried about any 'egg' taste in the Fry Up ones - I never did like the Builder Breakfast ones because of that.

Then egg-spect the worst.
They are eggy.

I actually like egg, proper egg with chips is heaven. But artifical sulphur egg... geez :-/
