Re: Salt and vinegar crisps!

Huh? Pringles are not crisps. They went to court to prove it and everything!

And they are made from the potatoes that are turned away from the doors of the crisp factories

Re: Salt and vinegar crisps!

COOP do quite a few flavours now, including salt and vinegar, granted not as many as back home, but enough

Re: Salt and vinegar crisps!

Don't know if this will help given your location, but I have found Bret's salt & vinegar chips at Migros in France. Nice texture, ripples, with more vinegar tang than Zweifel or Kettle, in my opinion. Cheaper than Zweifel, as well!

Just saw an advert for Salt and vinegar crisps on SF2!!!

Hopefully they will do roast chicken, bacon, cheese and onion, ham and pickle..... Gotta go, drooling.
Ah somebody else watching "house" and "castle"
And yes I am a bit of a heretic because I prefere Zweifel over Walkers.

Re: Salt and vinegar crisps!

The Zwiefel Provencal flavor are so herby that they taste like rotisserie chicken

Years ago (about 5 or 6) one of these chip manufacturers here did make a roast chicken flavour. I don't know what happened to it but it disappeared . Sucks, I really liked it.

Re: Salt and vinegar crisps!

Another way to take your salt and vinegar game up a notch is to microwave your chips for 10 or so seconds (depends on how many chips) and then splash them with real malt vinegar (and extra sea salt if you roll like that). Crazy good, y'all.

I agree.
I went back to the UK for an overnight dropping-off-daughter-to-ex trip and my parents asked if I wanted anything special in. Promptly I asked for extra strong cheddar and walkers flavoured crisps, preferably Roast chicken or Smokey bacon.
What I got was extra strong cheddar and a multipack of golden wonder crisps. Ok they were assorted meat flavours but golden wonder does not have as much flavour as walkers.
I found brannigans and seabrooks out there though, and managed to get them back without too much crumbage.

That sounds delicious; I just have to find the malt vinegar! I suppose I will need to go to the British Market, since I have yet to see it at Migros, Coop, Carrefour, etc.

I just bought Sarsons malt vinegar online from Coop!

Might interest you to know that lots of the Walkers business is done through Switzerland, their HQ being located here
