65p what? I paid 60p for a small packet of Wotsits earlier! I'm getting gouged at the till.

I remember some Cajun chicken flavour crisps I had many years ago, thick rippled and crunchy and blow your head off in flavour - I think Roysters used to do a similar flavour themselves. I would nibble at them slowly, a ripple at a time between chugs from a bottle of Irn Bru, then finish off with a Galaxy Caramel for pudding. Glorious.

By Jebus you weren't wrong - buffalo got tanned over the weekend and opened Jalapeņo tonight - "crisps" will never be the same again - simply amazing !!

I know right! They're incredibly delicious, a shop across the road from me back in Northern Ireland used to stock them along with loads of other imported American stuff. Used to buy a bag a day.

I went and ordered a few bags of the Snyder's Pretzel Pieces (Jalepeno and Buffalo Wing), too. They are rather nice, aren't they? Not at all hot, but just soaked in flavour.

I've also got a bag, or maybe two, of those really hot crisps that were posted in here. I'm saving them.

The Blair's chips? Eat a bag now and let us all know what you think. They really are the hottest crisps available, but they're so very very tasty.

That's the ones. I had a bag recently, they were okay. The heat was fine but I just wasn't keen on them as they are kettle chips. I'd much prefer a tortilla version, I reckon.

Finally picked up some of those Snyder's pretzel pieces at the weekend. The verdict is that the Jalapeno ones are pretty gross because they're way too salty, but the Buffalo Wing ones are amazing and the BBQ ones are pretty nice too.

Anyone tried the cheese and honey + mustard flavours? If so are they any good?

I love the Jalapeño and Coriander flavour of these... Can never find them anywhere though.

Salty Dog crisps are bizarre... On one hand they're really nice crisps, however ever since I've discovered that they're sold for 10p a bag in B&M/Home Bargains, any time I taste them they always seem a bit weird. Clearly I'm a crisp snob, but if you love them you really should go to B&M/Home Bargains and buy 10 packets for a quid.

Avoid the Burger King range of crisps from the US like the plague. I brought some back recently and they were one of the worst things I've ever eaten.

They actually taste like the smell of cooking oil you get outside of a takeaway. Foul things.

These on the other hand are lovely: Ruffles Molten Hot Wings

Also these were great too:

Fantastic. The Americans really know how to pile on the flavour.

Are there any cajun chicken crisps around? Roysters used to do some and there was another company making thick crinkly ones; I use to love the combination of mouth-searing cayenne and cluck.

I've always tried new salt and vinegar crisps-I used to like Kettle Chips but they're just not as strong as they used to be.

I recommend Tyrell's Salt and Malt Vinegar Furrows. It's just a fancy name for ridged crisps but they are awesome. They do the flavour in 'normal' crisps but the ridged ones are so much better. My second favourite salt and vinegar are the more common Walker's extra crunchy variety...anyone got any recommendations for Salt n Vinegar in a bigger bag? I find almost all supermarket versions taste the same (Tesco Finest, M&S etc etc) they're not bad but just not strong enough.

Co-op 'Finest' (whatever the fancy range is called) are salt and vinegar to the extreme, they're lovely.

Power of the ridged surface area

I don't know what it is about them, but I've eaten 3 bags of newsagent brand Chipsticks over the past fortnight - proper addictive.

I think they've gone downhill over recent years. They used to be amazing for burning the corners of your lips, but now I think they've gone pretty mild. As with all crisps though, you still occasionally hit the jackpot and spawn a bag with mega-flavour.

There's a petrol station near me that sells Brannigans, so they are out there. Beef and Mustard are as amazing now as they were in my youth. They sell Roysters too. Num.

I had some of these today.

Kind of spicy but not what I'd call "chilli"; there was none of the lingering heat that builds up as you eat more of them, so it was a bit disappointing. :(

Not a crisp per-se but Satan's Nuts are both incredibly hot and incredibly moreish all at once. If you have a beer with them you can expect to have it finished very quickly indeed.

I've not eaten crisps for around 4 weeks now, since I went mostly Primal.

I had a strange craving for them today. My favourites are the Fire Cracker Lobster ones from Burts but, maybe thankfully, I don't think they make them anymore.

From that same site I've had Blair's "Death Rain Potato Chips":

Better for sharing, I once ate a whole packet and got the chilli sweats :( They are pretty amazingly hot. The stuff you get at the bottom of the packet could be used as a weapon.

The key with Blairs chilli crisps is to gently shake the bag back and forth to distrubute the toxic dust evenly.

Into wasabi peas at present and have bought all the varieties we can find, singl complaint is none are hot enough, even those that claim to be. The best ones those sold in Tesco.
