Zweifel versus Walkers

Time to create a very useful poll.

For the past few months, we have been hooked on Zweifel's new flavour of crisps, Red & Hot. It's a great addition to their Salt & Vinegar flavour which they introduced last year. So now, we no longer have to wait for our yearly trips to the UK to bring back bags of Walkers and Marks&Spencer's crisps.

So what do everyone else think?

Re: Zweifel versus Walkers

I've not voted yet but based on packaging, it seems to me that Zweifel and Walkers / Lays are all the same company somewhere along the line?

I am the "other". I only like sweet potato/root veg crisps or corn nachos.

Re: Zweifel versus Walkers

The larger Co-ops have started selling Tyrell's crisps here. Hand-made in Hertfordshire and very good.

Re: Zweifel versus Walkers

I've got to go with Zweifel. The Paprika flavor and Snaghetti line beat out anything Walkers or Lays has to offer. This coming from guy who grew up on Wotsits and Ribeana.

Smiths. The plain salty ones with the lickle blue bags of salt.

I do like Zweiffels S&V though but I'm missing cheese and onion big time.

Re: Zweifel versus Walkers

Funny you should mention this - I did a parallel S&V test over the weekend: bag of Zweifel, bag of Tyrell S&V side by side, alternating between the two with a bottle of red wine on the side to clean the palate in between.

Both were very good, although I think I remember the Zweifel being a bit more vinagryererer, if you know what I mean. The wine was excellent

Maybe - but Swiss people generally seem to understand that the big packets they sell here aren't intended to be eaten by one person at one sitting.

Unlike in the U.K. where crisps are seen as the ideal food to serve your toddlers for breakfast (they are vegetables, after all)

Seabrooks crisps: "More" than a crisp

Of course it is (looks like they made their homework before they entered the Swiss market...):

"Die Chio Chips werden in der Schweiz produziert"

http://www.chio.ch/

They only made some vague statements weather or not they are using Swiss potatoes...

Fair enough. Not being able to market to innerschweiz due to lack of clear Swiss provenance is hardly a major loss. Do they taste good?
