Been to M&S today and found that they do crisps with no added salt!!!

Great, no blue bags to save.

Sorry Panda I'm not going searching. It's too long, and I'm not only talking about my age. Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_11

I right fancy some S&V crisps now, so I do...

Did you know that when you're in the pub, your potassium levels become higher than your sodium levels, and you crave salty things, such as, handily, crisps, to redress the balance?

Wow thats an amazing fact!

With the salt and shake i think it was just the thrill of finding a little blue packet inside your crisp packet, like walkers did when you won something! :?

Heh, thanks :wink:

It's also the noise you can make when shaking the bag, although it's not popular in a quiet office environment :oops:

What you talkin' bout, Cheese and Onion should always be blue, S&V should always be green.
Also, is 'ready salted' a flavour, or should these be known as 'plain'.
I had many a heated debate about that one at work when I was an apprentice.

Walkers have always been green for Salt 'n' Vinegar and blue for Cheese and Onion. Yes, it's different to everyone else. As far as I can see none of the supermarkets have copied, but if they have what do you expect? Walkers are the biggest crisp brand there is. Why do you think most own brand Colas have red packaging?

In the 1950's there were only Smiths Crisps, plain, in a blue bag with a little salt in a twist-open blue paper square inside.

Those were real crisps: no wonder I've no great enthusiasm for crisps to this day, new-fangled flavours and colour-coding notwithstanding...
Sworn, b'loody!

IMHO, plain crisps are just that - plain, with nuthin on

However, seeing as you very rarely get crisps with not even salt on, salty crips seem to have taken the mantle of 'plain'

? This place has become impossible. Nothing to eat, freezing cold and now a madman on the prowl outside with eels.

You can actually get crisps without the salt.

Walkers do the "Salt and Shake" crisps, labelled "Originally Smiths"(TM)
I but two packs of six every time I go shopping (six to eat at home - six for my pack-up for work). Throw the salt away and just eat the crisps in their natural form... Scrumptious.

Weren't they the crisps that in first school the first person that ever bought them to school thought they had won a prize due to that promotion that walkers did in the crisp packets? :?
