Marmite crisps resurface every now and then as a Wlakers 'special'

Bovril crisps eh? I had a cup of Bovril at the match last week...
? I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze.
? This place has become impossible. Nothing to eat, freezing cold and now a madman on the prowl outside with eels.

I used to sell Bovril at the match. And pies and boiled burgers(!) and boiled hotdogs.

Swimming out of the vending machine?
Neat trick.
Did you have to wait for someone to put the right money in first?

Greenwich swimming baths was the only place I knew of that sold Bovril crisps back then. Everywhere else just sold boring old plain with the little salt bag made from a twist of dark blue waxed paper. Mind you, sometimes you struck gold and got 2 bags of salt...........now that really was something to brag about in the playground.

I have tried them but they are not the same. The original Bovril crisps I reckon were probably hand made as the flavour varied between packets and individual crisps. Some crisps were so strong that that it was like licking the inside of a jar of Bovril and others were quite bland.
There was just something about them that made them so scrummy. Crisps nowadays are OK but the flavours taste chemical and what is now termed "nature identical". IE...not real but synthesisied in the lab. Which is why bacon crisps dont taste of real bacon, just a savoury taste similar to bacon.
Thats progress I suppose.

I think the 'flavours' changed when they were forced to take out all the carcenagenic "E" numbers. :roll:
