Crisps

I had some hand-cooked sea salt and balsamic vinegar ones from Marks & Spencers today. Good god, they were lovely.

You know when crisps are hand cooked? Well, I don't really understand what that means. All I know is that they are not as nice as robot cooked crisps.

Hand-cooked crisps are lovely and crunchy. If you don't like a crunchy crisp, you'd be out of luck there. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a crunchy crisp, sometimes I prefer softer maize snacks such as Wotsits or what have you. It really does depend on mood.

If I were to be really appalling honest with you, lynsosaurus, I would say the problem with hand cooked crisps lies manifestly in the issue of the oiliness/dryness continuum and not in the crunchiness/softliness trajectory. I would go so far as to describe hand cooked crisps as of greasy texture, if I may be so bold. I don't like a greasy crisp. If you ask me, robots make lovely dry crisps.

Not strictly crisps, but thought I'd share some of the funny shaped snacks I've found recently - The Man in the Moon prawn cracker, and the British Isles poppadum!

How could I have forgotten the king of crisps? Frazzles. Never a finer crisp was made.

i'd be less concerned about the british isles shape of the poppadum and more concerned about the fact the orkney isles appear to be (a) hideously out of proportion (b) made from a human ear.

also because i am very poor, today my lunch will consist of space raiders. the inflation busting and all round worst crisp on the market. i may as well eat a pritt stick for all the tastebud satisfaction and nutritional goodness i'll receive.

One of the few reasons I drive to Glasgow is to stop at Westmoreland Farm shops to pick up the apple crisps they sell there. You can probably buy them elsewhere, but its good an excuse as any

I love Scampi Fries. I like how when you bite into them and they're smooth inside, mmmm. They're a bit smelly, though.

I'm not that much of a crisp man. But I had some sweet chilli flavour Walkers Sensations today for the first time in a while and fuck me they were good.

Yup, they smell like vagina. Just like Scampi & lemon Nik Naks.

Both are so good, though!

Skips used to do a Sweetcorn flavour. I liked those.

I'm a huge crisp afficianado. I miss the UK's range of crisps. The US has about 6 flavours of Lays to choose from and they all suck. The UK has (or has had) upwards of 40 flavours to choose from (and now i'm talking Walker's)

High on my miss list are:

Pickled Onion Monster Munch
Sainsbury's cheese balls
Frisps
Frazzles
Bacon Wheat Crunchies
Skips

mmmm....i want some now.

no, i don't imagine a vagina to smell like eh. What does eh smell like?

Truly, on the serious side, vaginas smell good. As i said before, i do actually enjoy Scampi Flavour Fries. Tucking into a bowl of Vaginal Flora, however...not for me.

What woman wouldn't want to hear that her vagina smelled like seafood?
