Snack Findings




I was really looking forward to these.
"Monster Munch flavoured regular crisps! Excite!!"

But, no.
They're "flamin' hot", don't get me wrong. They have a kick. It's a nice kick.
But they're not Monster Munch Flamin' Hot flavoured.
In fact they barely have much of a flavour, and are just that boring "spice for the sake of spice" thing.

Damnit.
I was really looking forward to these...

Rating : 2/5 .. spicy, but not nicey..

TBH the Monster Munch snack doesn't have half as much flavour or kick as when they first came out.

I always put that down to the Golden Wonder -> Walkers switch.

Walkers logo looks a lot like Lay's chips, in the US. Probably the same parent company.

I also tried these a while back, Jay. Super disappointing

Pro, you're correct! Both brands are owned by Frito-Lays

Walkers/Lays chips/crisps and snacks are a global thing - not just UK/US.

Most of the world uses Lays. UK only really retained the Walkers name because everyone was so familiar with it, much like how there are still a few Smiths products flailing around, even though Walkers nabbed them yonks ago. (I think Frazzles are still Smiths, though Salt'&'Shake have recently been rebranded as Walkers)

The big giant PepsiCo bought both Walkers and Lays, decades ago, and smushed various bits of the two logos together to make the current one somewhat familiar in both territories.
