They are rather good and you can also get Smoked Chorizo, however I have been unable to find the 3rd type, BBQ Rib

Just had my 2nd packet earlier. No noticeable heat.

 

Had a bag of the KFC Zinger ones at the weekend and they were quite nice and I would eat them again. Couldn't place the flavour. Occasional hints of chicken I suppose. Heat was somewhere between salt and vinegar and Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations.

Seen the BBQ Rib in a few places but never knew the chorizo ones existed. Will need to keep an eye out.

Yep, found an unopened BBQ box on top shelf at Morrison’s at Gyle, so helped myself. They were decent.

Brannigan's roast beef and mustard are the best crisps ever made.

Reading this thread makes me want crisps :) 

 

I save them for Saturday evenings in my rock n roll lifestyle... It's only Tuesday :( 

I deliberately didn’t read this thread till now as it would definitely make me want crisps too !! Some great memories of by gone ones . It’s hard being on a diet looking at this thread 😂

Pretty similar to a real KFC meal, then ;)

These are nice, quite strong and flavoursome.

Was keen on big bags of Tyrrells Sea salt and vinegar, but £2 a bag.  Moved onto Sainsbury's finest at £1 a bag.  Much better value.  Also keen on Baked Cheesy Wotsits.  No wonder I am getting a fat git.

Mackies Crisps are an abomination of a crisp. Trick you into thinking they're going to be kettle chipesque but in reality it's like eating salted cardboard.

Has anyone found these anywhere in Edinburgh?

Furrows Cheese & Pickled Onion

 

Edit - Appears they may be in Waitrose - anyone confirm this?

They've got a strange texture. It's like they've been dehydrated rather than fried. First time I tried them, I had to check the ingredients to see if they were made with powdered potato, or something. Definitely not a favourite.

"KP Foods said demand had fallen, so bosses took the decision to cease production. A nation is mourning the loss of the old-time crisp brand Brannigans, a mainstay of pub bar shelves and a corner shop staple, which has been suddenly discontinued due to falling sales"

 

but if you Google them it's literally just loads of various forums (from football fans all the way through to Mumsnet!) Asking for stockists.

 

farmfoods were the only stockist really. Maybe if KP/branigans had actually supplied them properly they'd find they sell fine.

 

trouble is Tesco express etc all have the same tired variety of crisps every time.

 

my workmate was telling me his local cornershop usually just has your regular safe bets. Walkers etc. But every so often he'd make a request to the owner and knowing he's a regular he would get something in (roysters, bacon oinks etc). My workmate swears by the time he returned for another bag a day or so later the other customers would've finishes off the box of 'new crisps'. dunno how accurate that is exactly but point being shops, Especially big chains, will constantly just go for boring and safe.

I still miss the Phileas Fogg snack range from the late 1980's/early 1990s.

They had some incredible products.

The modern range is pish.

Amazing them. Have to try and avoid that aisle in Asda or they'll end up in my basket.

I had a ritual when they were available to buy a packet before every Grand Prix and work my way through them with numerous cups of coffee while watching the race.

The Scotmid at Whitehouse Road had a load of Mackie's flavours when I was in yesterday, looked like new ones, but I didn't take a proper look so can't say they had these ones. They were on their own wee stand in one of the aisles.

Found a Brannigans roast beef and mustard substitute. Not bad at all. 

 

 

 

I need to thank you. Bought a packet and LOVE them. THANK YOU

Salt and Vinegar Pringles with a bottle of  peroni today was delicious.   Was helpful because the beer was awful!   Tasty crisps.  I could have them on their own.

Never tried Peroni.

 

Pretty expensive compared to other beers and, well, you may as well stick to what you know and like.

 

Nothing worse than getting home and realising you have a fridge full of bottled dish water.

 

Had that experience with Rolling Rock. No crisp in the world could make that muck taste better. 😊

Love Cofresh stuff. Their crisps are in Tesco, but Morrisons have their coated peanuts which come in an array of different curry flavours. Shame there's no Morrisons that close to me. :(

It is. 2 for £1 and have been for donks.

 

Huge range and great for when your beer gets a bit too wet.
