Crisp-adjacent snacks

You know, things like Wotsits, Monster Munch, chipsticks, frazzles. Snacks that come in packets like crisps but sure as shit aren’t crisps. I’m a big fan. Sometimes much prefer stuff like this to actual crisps. Personal favourites include:

Ready salted potato sticks
S&V chipsticks
Pickled onion monster munch
M&S snack mix

What’s the verdict on this stuff then?

Sainsbury’s own brand salt and vinegar chipsticks are ridiculously addicitve, can’t have them in the house, would destroy a packet in seconds.

No they’re not, they’re crisp adjacent snacks, it says so in the thread title.

Oh, the spicy marks and spencers combo mix are great too.

Theyre universally better than all crisps

I don’t know how true this is, and we’d need extensive research to prove it either way, but I very much respect this opinion.

Used to like these. Just fat and salt really but wth.

A lot of them aren’t as good as they used to be. Thing they’ve taken a lot of the harmful really tasty stuff out. Monster Munch are nothing these days compared to what they were twenty years ago.

These used to be great. Would be blood red and absolutely coated to hell in flavouring. Bland these days.

Flamin’ hot Monster Munches might be the pinnacle of human gastronomy.

Tayto actually does a mad range of stuff, visitors from the uk can do some really good snack-tourism when they come to Ireland

What are Walkers Baked? Somewhere in between, I am a fan though.
