    Looks like Martin is losing to us 'philistine' C&O fans :D

    C&O is by far my favourite flavour but it has to be Walkers coz no other brand tastes anywhere near the same...

    My 2nd faves were Smokey Bacon (Walkers again) but I haven't been able to get them for absolutely ages - can anyone still get them?
    You should never call somebody else a nerd or geek because everybody (even YOU !!!) is an
    "anorak" about something whether it's trains, computers, football, shoes or celebs :p :rotfl:

    Smokey bacon for me... if you could show me a desert island with an infinite supply I'd paddle all the way.
    They are getting harder to find, local Co-op still sold Walkers smokey bacon flavour last time I looked. (Two weeks ago, before the diet started...:sad:)

    The only proper crisps are PLAIN!

    Poncy flavourwise, has to be worcester(shire?) Wheaty Crunchies... (dunno if you can still get them though).

    Ohh has to be Salt & Vinegar! :D

    The only decision is whether to have Mcoys or Disco's! :drool:

    Although I'm quite partial to Ringo's (S&V) since they made a bit of a comeback ? :think:

    Now that's a good post. If I could award stars for posts that would win it.

    I agree with you but would like to add in 'fish n chips' which are a minaly northern thing, but still available from poundstretcher, and 1980's M&S potatoe sticks. Plus SnV french fries, but not the crisps themselves, just the little bit of flavouring that remains in the bottom of the packet at the end!

    Cheese n Onion anyday !
    By the way, why do Walkers have blue packets for their Cheese n Onion??? All the rest have Green. Makes sense

    Well I voted for ready salted ...... but the the most enjoyable are the ones with the little blue packet
    Watch out for the sandbag.
