Confirmed: delicious and I can play 13 unique songs on a McCoys crisp.

Seconded on the McCoys front, some of my favourite crisps (except when they accidentally put too much flavouring on them). Seebrooks do good ones too - like a thinner, lighter crisp alternative to McCoys (not cut as thickly).

Walker's Deep Ridged Salt & Malt Vinegar Crisps

These deep ridged crisps promise "ridges twice as deep" "for epic satisfaction". Only part of that is true, at least for the salt and vinegar flavour. The ridges make for an interesting crisp but it's more difficult to eat than it needs to be, and when you've just typed "it's more difficult to eat than it needs to be" about a crisp, something has gone Wrong.

Pros:

* Being Walker's guarantees some quality
* Very filling
* Very flavoursome...

Cons:

* ... but a poor flavour
* Expensive (77p for a 50g pack)
* Hard to eat (I know)

Overall: a decent experiment but a flawed one. If you liked your crisps with ridges, there's only been one company to buy from for a long time. Stick with those real McCoy's.

56%

Nail on head. I found the extra ridges to cut into my gums easily and they actually put me off the Walkers Crinkles from which they were based off - the Cheddar and Onion ones simply had too much flavouring on them (thanks to the larger ridges) which made them sickly. Never again.

Disagree with the flavour being poor but I know exactly what you mean by "hard to eat", my mouth is like a cat owner's face after I've eaten some of them.

Mini review: I had a more caramel snickers the other day, pretty good & not as chewy as it sounds.

Gregg's Sausage Roll



Pros:

Staple of lunchtime for everybody, be you working-class, inner-city bigwig, toddler in a pram or trampy student
Addictive
Low-budget
There's a Greggs every three doors down
Allowed me to break a twenty and go get a bus


Cons:

What meat is in this? Seriously?
Floppy and salty, like a fanny
Less nutritional value than anything else ever cooked
Always leaves you thirsty

65%

This is the toughest review I've ever had to write. They're a classic, but they're gross as well. Maybe my opinion has been swayed by this whole horsemeat thing.

I always find Gregg's sausage rolls really greasy. Now their sandwiches - now we're talking.

yep, they really do have some good sandwiches but they still haven't topped the old ham & egg extra bite.

Please tell me I'm not the only one to pick up on this? A floppy fanny? Never had one of those... Or even a particularly salty one Laughing

First of all, I'd like to apologise on behalf of Guest for writing a review of fanny. I'm assured that Guest had been down the pub for several hours before hand, and was less drunk than absolutely f**king c**ted.

Secondly, has nobody eaten anything in the last three weeks? Here comes Phillips:

Lebkuchen



DISCLAIMER: I had never, ever heard of this stuff as of ten minutes ago. I just saw a packet in the kitchen and wired in.

Pros:

Surprisingly dense!
Very tasty
Flavours do indeed remind me of Christmas!
Probably not as bad for you as other cakes

Cons:

Contains almond...almond cake...which *could* also be jobby.
It's Christmassy food in March
Thirsty work

82%

A huge surprise. I genuinely hadn't a clue what to expect, but the faint gingerbread/nutty taste and the moreishness of them was great. Having these again.

It looks dry, and meat like, worrying, I know you've given it a decent review but graphics mean a lot for me when it comes to snacks.

Oh yes, are those spiced Christmas cakes? Love those, though they do get samey after a while.

Millionaire Shortbread


I've been getting these from my local corner shop the last week or so & they're excellent, the base is just so crumbly.

Oh yes. Always feel guilty after eating one. probably the combination of the sugary caramel and buttery shortbread being a bit too indulgent for a 'light snack'. As I keep (well, kept, haven't had one in years sadly) telling myself.

Cadbury Mini Eggs



Pros:

Arguably the best thing about Easter
Wolfable
Best tasting chocolate out there

Cons:

Sadly not available 365 days a year
Too wolfable - a bag lasts seconds
Absolutely disgraceful for you. Get your arse down the gym, you fat bastard.

85%

Verdict: They're Mini Eggs, aren't they? They're brilliant, and you didn't need this review to tell you that.

Woo, the reviews train is back!

Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread



Pros
These never get old. Nope, never.
Rich, buttery crumbly texture that just melts in the mouth
It's like eating the best cookie dough ever

Cons
32% butter. Yeah, a third of that shortbread stick was pure butter. A third.
Eat something savoury before these and it'll taste like eating cream and butter together.
Addictive. And considering the high butter content, not a wise snack to devour
You'll feel terrible after you finish the pack of two/pack of 16/pack of 32/tin

wOOOOO!!! rEVIEWS tRAIN~!!! Definitely need to keep this going.

You can't go wrong with shortbread. The bar I work in has a constant supply of fresh, homemade shortbread next to the coffee station - it's probably my most eaten food!

My Easter egg was a mini eggs one, I tried to have just a few of the wee eggs & save the rest for the next day.......it didn't happen.

Ye can't beat a bit if shortbread.
