This is the second flavour in the new Walkers range of mystery varieties which have launched with a big competition on the bags. I discussed the first one here, but there are three new packs out, and you can guess what flavours they are on the walkers site and try and win some money! Have look at the walkers homepage for full comp details: walkers.co.uk
As per the first pack (know as flavour A) this one doesn’t have much of a clue to the taste except a vague ‘meaty’ comment on the back. I should point out that the image on the bag shows inspirational ingredients and is not actually a clue to the contents (boo hiss).
I opened the pack up and the aroma was surprisingly sweet, more so than I had expected. The sweet tones dulled a little when I tried a crisp, and the meatiness promised on the back of the pack kicked in. I didn’t think it was as rich as beef, or as light as chicken, so I ended up concluding that it must be pork. The sweetness seems to turn into more of a tomato flavour mixed in, so as a conclusion I was thinking around a meat feast pizza or more simply sausage and red sauce. Either way I liked the crisps, but still feel that I haven’t quite hit the mark with the solution. There were some background hints of another flavour, and although it was just gentle, it was enough to make me think I’d missed something. Another friend who had tried them felt that it might be Spam, but as I’ve never tried the stuff I can’t really comment on that one, sadly.
Identifying these flavours is so much harder than you might think but I am enjoying trying! I’m off for another bag of Mystery Flavour B and going to have a bit more of a think. Anyone else got any ideas? Good luck with your guesses! :-)
