    Salt & Vinegar Squares are painful to eat. That's why I love them.

    It's sad to think there have probably been more innovations in Crisps over the last five years than in music. I mean how can even the most cutting edge musician compete with 3D paprika doritos? That's like the Windowlicker of crisps.

    Crisps aren't proper food though, whilst you're eating them what you really want is something hot or at least a sarnie.

    Best crisp of all time. Accept no substitutes.

    S&V discos aren't bad either, and they are definitely painful.

    Edit: Nik Naks are wrong, but so right.

    And why is it that no other country in the world but the UK seems to do crisps well at all? Not even passably. It's like one of Britain's greatest cultural triumphs,w hich none can emulate.

    the british can be justifiably proud of their crisps, there's no disputing it.
    i am coming back to london on holiday soon. i will have been away for almost 3 years.
    have there been any developments in the world of crisps in that time? when i started this thread the crisp world was going through an unprecedented stage of innovation, as detailed above. has this ground to a complete halt, or are there voluptuous new flavour sensations awaiting my eager mouth?

    yeah cassava was in effect before i left.
    at first just ones that seemed to issue from india or the west indies, brand names i'd never heard of, but then taken up by walkers, most notably in the sensation range mentioned above. cassava does make an excellent alternative to potato. much lighter.
    i approve wholeheartedly.
    MSG is also a great crisp ingredient and much underrated.

    i think sweet chilli is overrated, just as an aside. too cloying. too ubiquitous.
    ditto cheap balsamic, used without discrimination. i'd rather a good wine or cider vinegar a lot of the time.
