Walkers Marvellous Mince Pies Crisps (Tesco) By @SpectreUK

Walkers Marvellous Mince Pies Crisps

Merry Christmas! I thought I'd get that out of the way first. I've recently had several guys complain to me about Christmas so far. The complaints ranged from expense of presents to the existence of Father Christmas (whether he exists or not, who can say!), and also gripes about Christmas music in the office while they were trying to concentrate and the pain of putting up Christmas decorations.

I'm not a fan of Christmas myself, but for some reason I'm looking forward to this one more than most. Besides I don't mind it all that much nowadays, as Cinabar gets super excited enough for both of us. I do really love the food and snacks this time of year. I love mince pies, and the Christmas cake Cinabar especially bakes for me (as I can't eat nuts for dietary reasons), and I'm quite partial to presents (mainly receiving them). So I get Christmas, I suppose, what I don't get is Walkers Marvellous Mince Pies crisps. They sound like a crime against snack food! And yet, here I am about to brave a blog about them…

I say 'brave' because Cinabar and her mom tried them first… They seemed to like them, stating that some of the actual mince pie flavours had been dulled down a little, such as the fruitiness and the pastry. In the UK our mince pies generally don't have any meat in them, as we don't seem to make the traditional mince pies nowadays. However, I say 'brave' because there is cinnamon in the flavouring of these crisps. I don't particularly like cinnamon. Especially when someone adds it to apple to make a pie or whatever, but there are no apples here, so we'll see…

On opening the bag there was indeed a mince pie spiced aroma from the crisps inside. It was a good smell, I have to say. A smell of Christmas no less. I have to disagree with Cinabar and her mom on the flavour of these Walkers Marvellous Mince Pies crisps. To me they tasted fully of mince pies, well, asides for the potato in the crisps.

They're actually bizarrely moreish. Whilst my brain was trying desperately to convince me that I really didn't like them, I kept munching more and more of them. No… I really shouldn't like these, and yet… they're really rather yummy. Walkers Marvellous Mince Pies crisps possibly need cream, but that would be totally insane!
