Walkers 1960’s Roast Lamb and Mint Crisps (Ocado) By @Cinabar

Basically Walkers have introduced a favourite flavour from each decade dating back to the 1950s. This range is called Flavours of the Decades. They are celebrating 70 years of crisps, and as a favourite brand we are more than happy to work our way through these new, well old, varieties. This particular bag of crisps represents the 1960s, and although I wasn’t born then we have tried these crisps before. They have been previously re-released, one example is as part of a similar project from Walkers Bring Me Back in 2015. Spectre tried them then and really enjoyed them, so I was pleased to get my hands on this bag.
Although a retro flavour the bag is a bit more up to date and neatly decorated with a sixties pattern that would look fitting on a vintage dress, it has kept its green colour though which is part of the original theme.
I have to say I was impressed by the flavour. I love meaty crisps, but usually find myself drawn to chicken crisps. These though are so distinctly lamb, they are meaty and juicy and just hit the spot. The mint flavour is a milder blend, but certainly present and add a lovely tang at the end of the flavour. These crisps were making me crave a Sunday dinner, so they are certainly doing something right. I have to say to Walkers I totally understand why they keep re-releasing this flavour as they are seriously tasty. Perhaps Walkers should just bite the bullet and bring them back for sale permanently and just stop teasing us!
