Walkers Worcester Sauce French Fries


Recommended Posts

I apologise if this has been mentioned before. I used to love Worcester sauce French fries, i am sure they used to be in a 6 pack with salt&vinegar, ready salted. Is there any idea why that stopped ?.

Worcester Sauce French Fries to me are like cookies to the Cookie Monster. They're just not that easy to find. Big Asdas near me sell six packs of them (I don't generally shop at Asda, which is probably a good thing).

As to your actual question, no idea. I can only really remember the variety six pack being the three flavours you mention. Two thirds of which are fine I guess but the ready salted is poor.

You can get a 32-pack box of them from Amazon for £30. LINK HERE

There are some crisps that just pack significantly more punch than others. These are one of those.

May I add Beef and Mustard Brannigans and Pickled Onion Space Raiders to that list?

Salt and Vinegar is a particular favourite flavour of mine and at the top end of the scale, McCoys and Discos pack the most flavour here, IMO.

I think the great thing about W.S. French Fries is that I just can keep eating them whereas, even for me, after a while the kick of a decent salt & vinegar starts to hit. Pickled Onion Space Raiders are good, slightly milder than their Monster Munch cousins and have always had a favourable price point (I'm always shocked they're not still 10p).

I have a rotating cast of favourite crisps: Seabrooks are a good all-rounder (S&V, Worcester Sauce, Prawn Cocktail the ones I usually go for). I don't mind Quavers or Skips every now and then for a change. But top tier are Worcester Sauce French Fries, Scampi & Lemon Nik Naks and Spicy Tomato Wheat Crunchies (Bacon Wheat Crunchies are easier to come by and acceptable but not quite as good).

I couldn't have said it better. I mean, you've literally listed off the whole range of our old 1980s school tuck shop. The halcyon days of crisp-age are happily being relived in a retro-style. Long may that continue! 

Seabrooks, say the scientists, gain their punch from the larger surface area of the crinkle-cut technique and the good old 'melt-in-the-mouth' Skips are very much an experience.

I noticed a dilution in common flavourings from the 80s onwards. In the 70s, Golden Wonder Salt and Vinegar could rip the roof of your mouth off.

Quiz question - Which one of the following ten Tudor Crisps flavours is not cannily authentic?

Mint Sauce

Tomato Sauce

Brown Sauce

Chocolate

Kipper

Hot Dog and Mustard

Hot Dog and Ketchup

Roast Beef and Pickle

Gammon and Pineapple

Blackcurrant and Curry
