Jimmy Con Carrne [Crisps] (Walkers) [By @cinabar]
Working our way through the new Comic Relief Walkers flavours, we now have Jimmy Carrs’s contribution of a Chilli Con Carne variety. I was quite excited about these because their flavour is a little more unique than the others. Although I have tried quite a few chilli crisps, these are the first chilli con carne ones.
Opening the pack, the aroma was very pleasant and appealing, with a good hint of spice and Mexican flavours. These crisp were indeed very different to regular chilli crisps, and had a much bigger depth of flavour. In fact the flavour is surprisingly different, tasting rather like a vegetarian chilli con carne. The was definitely a good hint of chilli, which left the mouth with a decent warmth, but the other flavours of beans, vegetables, tomato and paprika complemented it really well. Sadly there wasn’t much of a beef or meat taste mixed in, but the other flavours made for a very nice packet of crisps. These are my favourite so far out of all the new varities, as they are just so munchable and tasty. I still have Stephen Fry’s Full English left to try, but these Jimmy Con Carrne crisps have set the standard very high.
