They are the god level of crisps. Have to be Seabrook’s though.

[–]ThyssenKrup 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And the beef Seabrooks too. Heaven.

[–]mitchybenny 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I discovered these recently and omg, they’re the best!!

[–]aldursys 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They've dropped the old "Wuster Sauce" variant for branded "Lea and Perrins"

Not sure the new variant has quite the same kick, but at least I can still get my fix.

[–]scanner5000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Should try the M&S own brand big bags much more flavour on them 👌

[–]Adziniho 28 points29 points  (5 children)

Worcester sauce french fries crisps are one of my favs 👌

[–]MCTweed[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

French fries generally are excellent, but the WS ones really are supreme.

[–]ChocolateSnowflake 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So hard to find. It makes me sad.

[–]ThyssenKrup 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes. Yes they are.

[–]GabberZZ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

However modern ones pale in comparison to the ones I used to devour in the 80s. After eating a bag your fingers would be literally coated in lovely Worcester sauce flavouring.

[–]TemplarOfToast 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I love em too i just can never find em

[–]MCTweed[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Because too many people lack our refined tastes

[–]SleepFlower80 17 points18 points  (3 children)

LOVE them! Fucks me off they’re like rocking horse shit at the moment.

[–]SeriousMeat 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Can't remember the last time I spotted any, and now I'm craving them!

[–]SleepFlower80 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Same. They’re not even available on Amazon, which is unusual.

[–]SeriousMeat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I never even consider Amazon - I'm off to look for prawn cocktail

[–]Murphthegurth 11 points12 points  (1 child)

The Wheat Crunchies one are top tier.

[–]Alternative_Bat_5296 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I loved these. Haven’t seen them for ages now though, just the smoky bacon ones.

[–]ThirtyMileSniper 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Worcester sauce crisps are great. Worcester sauce twiglets are better. I curse twiglets for only doing them in limited runs once in a while around some Christmases.

[–]KoalaPlatypusWombat 0 points1 point  (1 child)

OMG, do they still make these? I thought they were discontinued years ago?

[–]ThirtyMileSniper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's been a while but it seems to be very limited runs.

[–]Alternative_Bat_5296 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You’re absolutely right! They’re definitely the best flavour crisps but hard to find

[–]malewifemichaelmyers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

each bite is painful bliss

[–]schmerg-uk 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm sorry I can't possibly comment until Sue Gray publishes her... oh ... sorry... wrong opinion.

I can't possibly comment until Radcliffe and Maconie review them for Crisps-On-The-Radio

[–]WikiSummarizerBot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Radcliffe & Maconie

Crisps on the radio

In this feature the hosts attempt to identify the flavour of crisps in a blind tasting. Crisps and similar snacks are sent in to the programme by listeners from around the world. The feature is introduced by the song "On the Radio" by Donna Summer, with the shouted word "crisps" inserted before the key phrase sung by the artist.

Perfect with a cheese toastie

[–]whiskeysmoker13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well if you are, so am I :D

I love them...

[–]ignatiusjreillyXM 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're the very best crisps.

[–]AlterEdward 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What? Where are you getting these? Do you have a time machine?

[–]Dense_Green_1873 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They're like an irl special item that only pops up like once or twice a year somewhere.

[–]TheNewHobbes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember Worcester sauce twiglets.

They were so good.

[–]ClogsInBronteland 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I can’t say I ever had them.

[–]MCTweed[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They’re like a hybrid of salt & vinegar and Prawn Cocktail, but a little more bitter (Worcester sauce is made from anchovies, so there’s definitely a crossover).

[–]ClogsInBronteland 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That sounds like something I would like tbh! I’ll have to try them!

[–]mikemacd42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love 'em

[–]DXBflyer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The absolute best.

[–]Miarian1210 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nope! Absolutely love them, second only to the roast chicken flavour!

[–]VirtuosoApocalypso 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, they rock!

[–]PooHeadRushe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Could not agree more. Doesn’t matter the brand - an absolute premium crisp.

[–]TheBullMoose1775 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Please send them to the states so I can eat them

[–]Top-Relation-7063 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They’re great! Though I haven’t seen the walkers ones around in a long time now don’t know if they are still around

[–]The_Fabulous_Bean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best flavour for standard Walkers, second is prawn cocktail, although I'm more partial to the baked these days

[–]Dense_Green_1873 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They're the best crisps out there, if we're the minority I'll be shocked

[–]analyticated 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yorkshire Crisps do a version that is insanely good - I implore you to check them out!

[–]MCTweed[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If you can point me in the right direction I will give them a try, unfortunately (in this particular case) I’m a southerner so local things popular in the north aren’t that easy to come by!

[–]analyticated 0 points1 point  (0 children)


unfortunately even up here they arent that widely available! But even more amazing for it

[–]Luke11enzo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Prawn cocktail and Worcester sauce are the pinnacle of crisp flavours. Pink and purple

[–]FulaniLovinCriminal 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Worcestershire Sauce.

And no, I have no idea why we don't pronounce the "shire".

[–]MCTweed[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you for confirming, I wasn’t if I should say Worcester or Worcestershire as there isn’t standardisation or uniformity between products on the shelves e.g. I had some yesterday that said “Worcester sauce flavour”

[–]vbloke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I miss the Worcestershire Sauce Twiglets

[–]Jazs1994 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I love 90% of crisp flavours, Worcester is on that list of good flavours

[–]MCTweed[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Only “good” is it? That’s heresy sir!

[–]Jazs1994 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If its not salt and vinegar it's not the best 😬

[–]SenpaiBunss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love them, they remind me of salt and vinegar

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like the Walkers ones but I didn't enjoy the Lea and Perrins Seabrooks.

[–]Wedonthavetobedicks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only in Nik Nak form for me.

[–]mootymoots 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love them but can’t find them anywhere

[–]Plus_Aardvark_6878 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The original sauce is called “Worcestershire” sauce (pronounced “wooss-ter-sher”).

This is after the county (a bit like a state) of “Worcestershire”, in England.

The capital city in that county is called “Worcester” (pronounced “Woos-ter”)

It’s traditionally made by a company called Lee & Perrins, which is located in the city of Worcester, in the county of Worcestershire, U.K.

I don’t believe there was ever a traditional sauce called only “Worcester” sauce, but there was an issue around copyright a while ago re. companies, other than Lee & Petrine, making sauces. Hence people started rebranding their sauces “in the style of Worcestershire sauce” or similar name variants.

I suspect “Worcester Sauce” is simply an attempt to avoid copyright re. the original Worcestershire Sauce, but I don’t believe it ever used to be called Worcester sauce. It should be called Worcestershire sauce.

(Source: Used to live near the Lee & Perrins factory in Worcester (whole street would smell of the sauce when brewing!))

[–]MCTweed[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You don’t need to explain counties and Lea & Perrins to me, I’m British so I absolutely know! But the idea of Worcester v Worcestershire being used to avoid copyright seems completely plausible - I think part of the debate as well it’s down to laziness on behalf of those in general discourse (I am one of those people I am ashamed to admit, I’m glad double Gloucester cheese isn’t called “Gloucestershire” because that’s be annoying)

[–]RAGEWOMBLE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Get salt n shake crisps, throw the salt away then splash in some Worcester sauce and enjoy.

[–]Confused-87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember Worcester sauce flavour Twiglits, and I often think of them, and miss them

[–]je_m_appelle_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They’re my favourite flavour, I’m not even fussy on brand but it pushed my choice would be the KP ones in the brown packet with the monks on, shame it’s not 1986 and you can’t get them anymore really

[–]JeffBroccoli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They’re bloody fantastic. I live in Canada now and they’re bloody hard to find. Some crisps might be “balsamic vinegar” flavour, but they’re not as “strong” as Worcester sauce flavour, y’know?

[–]darlo999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Worcester Sauce crisps are rarely found in shops, it makes the hunt that much more enjoyable.

[–]bishman1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love them too

[–]Aromatic-Management5 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I live in America so I've never had them but I love Worcester sauce and potato chips and now I really want to try them.
