There's black pudding and english mustard crisps in the vending machine which is threatening my resolve to stay off crappy fatty foods.......

    oooh, who makes those .... not seen them before ..... if it was me I would buy them to try and cut out something else of a similar calorific value

    I am all for ignoring the vending machine ... but a new flavour of crisps is essential

    I'm not a big eater of crisps, never buy them for myself. But the Mrs likes them and I'll pinch a few if she gets some. But. Black pudding and English mustard crisps would do it for me and I would undoubtedly buy a bag. There is of course a high probability that having done so I would be disappointed with the result and not buy them again.

    I 100% blame crisps for making me fat

    now I can mostly ignore what they say ... probably eat on average about 1 packet every couple of months now ... but .. if I saw black pudding crisps I would buy them, eat them ... and I too would be massively disappointed with them .. and myself

    All crisps are disappointing since I first discovered prawn cocktail ones.

    Mmmmm black pudding crisps. If it wasn't for my vanity I could bang out a large box of pringles daily.

    I would eat any crisps apart from Monster Much pickle and onion or marmite flavour.

    A petrol station attendant in Leicester once shouted at me because I wanted to pay for some smokey bacon crisps (the king of crisps, married to its queen, pickled onion monster munch and father of the prince of crisps, pickled onion aliens) with a Visa card.

    Not that anyone who eats crisps would worry about the ingredients...

    Ingredients:
    Potatoes, sunflower oil, milk, lactose, salt, sugar, dried onion, dried tomato, palm oil, yeast extract, flavouring, wheat flour, milk protein, black pepper, garlic powder, rapeseed oil, mace, nutmeg, paprika.

    Personally, I would blow the vending machine up.

    Chilli heat wave Tortilla crisps from Lidl are okay.

    Question should be though: crisps or Twiglets? I'm afraid the latter for me...

    I would never thought that MF was a Twiglet man. I can't think of Twiglets without thinking of Mr Bean and his New Year Party.

    Actually, when you think about it, he likes Twiglet women.

    It's like MF has a split personality!

    Twiglets, NO!

    Cheese and onion for me.

    I had my first packet this year on Tuesday, if I'm feeling rash, I might have another before June.


    The older I get, the better I was.

    You can also use Twiglets as pointers "hmmm, yes, that laceration there - it's really quite deep isn't it" whilst pointing at it with a Twiglet then destroying the evidence by eating it.

    Monster Munch are really cool because you can use them as false teeth when giving a clinical diagnosis "mmmummmm mmmummmm mummm amputation mmmmummm mummmm pickled onion mummmm mummmm mmmuummm lose it above the knee".

    I find it always puts people at ease.

    Surely you can munch anything whilst giving a clinical diagnosis?

    I would have thought peeling the shells off the Pistachio's you keep in your pocket (amongst the old tissues, jelly babies, buttons, needles, shrapnel of various denomination, cigar butts) and then chucking them anywhere would have been a better choice.
    Plus you have to stink of garlic and have swivel eyes, long scraggly hair and look totally unkempt wearing your green cardigan with holes in it.

    Have I just...?

    Pistachios don't give you fake teeth though.

    See - it's the fake comedy teeth made out of crisps that separates the professionals from the amateurs .....

    They've sat on my desk aaaalllll morning and were bought in a moment of weakness. They only weigh 40grams so they're not the largest pack of crisps.........

    Eat the lot. Have a heart attack. Put even more pressure on the NHS. That's fine.
