Phileas Fogg – Poppadoms Indian Red Chilli (Sainsbury’s)

Recently I was reviewing the ‘Do Us A Flavour’ Walkers crisp’s range, and amongst them are the Onion Bhaji ones. I mention this particular flavour as it led to a strange conversation with Spectre (our resident crisp expert). He said that the taste of the Onion Bhaji crisps reminded him of ‘Poppadom crisps’ from the eighties. I had no idea what he was talking about, and didn’t really give it a second thought. That was until I was wandering around the supermarket and these caught my eye. They are Poppadom crisps from Phileas Fogg and are part of a product re-launch. Clearly fate was dictating that I should purchase them.
Wow. I was not disappointed, these poppadoms are absolutely fantastic. They are shaped like small round poppadoms, and have a lovely authentic taste. The added flavour of red chilli gives a gentle burn and adds warmth. They are morish, tasty and gorgeous. I honestly can’t recommend them enough!
