I had to try them, the new offer from Walkers crisps......Brussels Sprout flavour crisps. Now I like Brussels sprouts which is a bonus otherwise trying these would have been seen as some sort of torture, the EU are probably using these as a way of saying 'you know you want to stay'.
For some though Brussels sprouts are a sure reason for leaving the EU, not loved by everyone, awwww and they can play havoc with some people's digestive system. A bit wiffy aren't they when passing the old trumpety trump (fart/passing wind).
I love them and could eat them a lot so never stand behind me in a queue just in case but thankfully you should be safe after eating these crisps. I love how they have a big warning on the front saying they don't contain real Brussels, only flavouring. It's like saying in big capitals or shouting out that these will NOT MAKE YOU FART!!!
So what did I think? Well I love them, they do really taste like Brussels sprouts and I think combined with the pigs in blanket flavour and turkey stuffing flavour I may not have to even bother with a Christmas dinner. I might just have all three flavours on a plate and put some gravy over them and be done with it. The easiest Christmas dinner ever.....stand down Jamie Oliver, you've met ya match now.
I like them that much I'm thinking of stock piling a few packets in my cupboard so that I can have them for a few weeks to come. I wonder though if I would be sick of the sight of them after Christmas........naaaa love your Brussels embrace that taste and take in the aroma. It's there I can assure you in these packets of delish delights.
So give them a try, or if you have given them a try what did you think? Are you fan? I think most people will buy them out of curiosity, I did, but now I'm a bit hooked. I think they ought to be a permanent flavour - save the Brussels sprout crisps! Oh I feel a placard coming on and a demo outside of the Walkers HQ.
For now though we will leave it there, I'm back tomorrow with my Verse for Thursday so join me then......happy sprout season.....(paaaaarp).
