    Best snack - your choice and reason.

    Cheese 'n' onion crisps? Frazzles? Mini cheddars? Quavers? Wotsits? My vote - Pringles, sour cream. Just yum!
  5. Multi-pack Crisps - What's Your Flava - Tell Me....

    I have yet to come across a multi-pack of mixed flavour crisps that didn't contain at least one flavour that no-one in the family will eat. Here it's Roast Chicken - I have to sneak them into the family by crushing them and using them to top Macaroni- or Cauliflower-Cheese. If you could...

    Crisps of yesteryear.

    I wish they still made chicken wickers.

    Guinness Crisps

    Just tucking into a packet of Burts Guinness crisps. I bought them with a degree of dubiety, but have to say they are THE best.
  8. Amazing Machine.

    Just been to the gym and there's a new machine, only used it for an hour as I started to feel sick! Its good though - it does everything.... KitKats, Mars Bars, Snickers, Crisps. the lot.
  9. Travel to D'Nam

    Just wanted to say that I travelled with SZ travel to D'nam on Saturday, for the first time. I couldn't be asked to drive as the rest of the guys I travel with were unable to get tickets or were working. Well... What a great bunch, I was made to feel very welcome, including signing a Birthday...

    Walkers flavour cup crisps.

    I have just purchased a bag of English roast beef and Yorkshire pudding flavour crisps from Waitrose. Not bad but not hugely different from regular roast beef flavour. Surely they should be breaking new ground and concentrating on flavours that have never been twinned with crips before? I'll...

    Those office workers...

    Kris Akabusi Stories

    How do you like my bit of spare time writing ....i wish !! Akabusi scaled the walls of the £756,000 Sussex mansion with all the stealth of a gekko on a Mallorcan shower wall. As luck would have it the window was open. He dropped in and slipped out of his dungerees and let the cool air caress...

    Non brand crisps of distinction.

    Has anyone got any decent non-brand crisp recommendations? I am currently into Kolak Chilli and Lemon flavour crisps which can be found in the ethnic foods aisle in Tesco or the 99p shop on Canvey Island. Kolak do a number of other Indian inspired flavours and the curry/chutney ones aren't bad...

    Wenger's Bar

    I'm afraid I won't be writing a column this week, or indeed ever again. Yep, I'm hanging up my presspass and shutting my laptop for the final time. I'm off to France, you see. Arsene Wenger's assertion that he learned everything he needed to know about football in a pub gave me food for thought...
  15. Walker's Crisps - New flavours

    so which of the new trial flavours is your favourite? Have you worked your way through all of them? I just tried my last one today (Fish and Chips) and a couple of them at least are fairly nice (although not as strongly flavoured as I was expecting) Good times
  16. Essex Hurricane Appeal

    ESSEX HURRICANE APPEAL A major hurricane (Hurricane Shazza) and earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter Scale hit Essex in the early hours of Thursday with its epicentre in Basildon. Victims were seen wandering around aimlessly, muttering "Faaackinell". The hurricane decimated the area...

    Being Unemployed is boring.......

    When I first lost my job at the start of December, I thought a couple of weeks off might be very nice, relax a bit over xmas, think about where I am and where I want to go, things like that. Begining my ninth week of sitting at home, it is starting to wear a bit thin. I seem to have developed...
  18. My Housemate's a Moron, Appropriate Banter Needed

    I'm living in a house down here in Eastbourne with 4 other lads, all students, and as you may expect, the banter tends to fly around. All legit banter, nothing too serious or personal, nothing physical either. One of my Housemates is a bit of a bargain hunter, addicted to those money saving...

    Walkers 'Vote for me!' crisps.

    I have just tried a packet of Builders breakfast flavour and I wasn't particularly impressed. Is anyone else concerned with the whole concept of mixing snack treats and talent competitions? Let's face it - Big Brother and X factor do not produce a higher calibre of celebrity, do they?
