Its funny. You'd think that you'd never, ever, throw away a half eaten packet of crisps, but then they invent these 'flavours' where you end up having to do exactly that.

Just ask yourself: if given the chance, would you like to combine the varied tastes and scents of your favourite female with the cheesy goodness of a maize corn snack, or would you prefer to keep those two realities apart??

Because for me that is easy - I want them combined. I want both of my favourite things combined into one sweet package. It's a no-brainer! But I think I am an outlier.

Bah. It was a bravely designed bar and I for one loved them. So sick of hearing people deride them. People who, lets face it, always wanted them to fail.

I will say they seemed slightly expensive at one Euro a pop but I ate 'em up wherever I could find them. Stuffed hundreds down my throat over the twelve months they were out.

Thought a Renaissance man like yourself would see the beauty in those little tayto-flecked bars of chocolate Em.

They ain’t great Tayto...their Smokey bacon I really like that’s about it.

King cheese and onion are so much nicer than Tayto, both texture and flavor.

Pringles are nice with a dip a bit bland and dry without.

Beyond me how anyone could find Tayto anything less than the perfect Cheese and Onion potato crisp.

King much more flavorsome, nicer texture and less of an artificial flavor too. I think I’ll go grab me some.

I have seen Salted multipack Taytos but haven't tried them yet, I do like walkers ready salted so i wonder how they compare. It's nice to have more choice instead of everything being Cheese & Onion

Tayto Hunky Dory Cheese and Onion - they've added "tayto" to the name so now you have to choose Tayto original or Tayto Honky Dory Cheese and Onion.

The world has gone mad Ted

Has anyone noticed that the hunky dory crisps now taste stale and like cardboard?

I just had the Flamed Grill Steaks ones yesterday and to be honest, they lacked flavour and i won't be as quick to pick them up in the future.

They're all packaged like this in the shops now. Has anyone seen them yet?

My local shop in Dublin has them in stock for a fair bit. I barely recognised them when going near the tills recently.

Meh. All of those are too salty for me.
I once tasted one of those “local” crisps like O’Donnell’s (?) or one of those.
They were not drenched in oil or covered in salt, so you got the real taste of real shpud, but nice and crispy. Lay’s would be the next best thing. But these days the closest I can get is Pringles Original or their Aldi equivalent.
Can’t bate the taste of shpuds.
