I just don't think that Monster Munch made by Walker's are as big, nice or as crunchy as Monster Munch made by Smith's all them years ago.

What do you think?

Crikey, of COURSE it's Smiths!!! If for no other reason then for this one alone - they had the best "shapes". Oh, and they made great "beef flavour" monster munch too. Luvvvverly... :wink:

Another vote for Smiths.

I also had a soft spot for cheese & onion Ringos. Smelt like old feet but were yummy. Are these still around?

You won't believe this but yes!! I had a packet the other night from a 'Tesco's Express', as it was the only place open. I was on my way home after a very late night working on RG19!

And they still smell vile, taste lovely and have the texture of soggy cardboard! Yum![/i]

All this talk about Monster Munch forced me to look at them inTesco today - Can you buy multi-packs of the Beef Flavour?

Walkers no question. The old monster munch were too big and took two bites - either that or you got a ripped top of the mouth! New monster much are much better.

Pickeled onion mmmmmmmmmmmmm

SMITHS. Come on: how can anyone say otherwise? Even the old-style monsters looked better.

Smiths made better everything imho... I found a packet of Ringos not so long ago and I thought they were foul... maybe they've changed again since though.

To me Monster Munch are different, Square Crisps, Discos and Hula Hoops - although they were KP. Does Walker's do those now as well? They give me terrible indigestion these days.

And Salt&Shake are back now too. A lot of brand ressurection.

Tell you what I really miss though... Tubes&Loops and Thundercats crisps. Mmmm....

I remember when Salt & Shake cropped up in the 70s and it was a relaunch then. Can't beat finding a tiny small blue packet in your crisps!
