Tayto Prawn Cocktail Flavour Crisps

This is another little 25g packet from the Tayto multi-pack I found in Tesco. And something of a disappointment.

As before I noticed that the Tayto crisps are very small. Which is fine. After all the size of the potato doesn't affect the taste of the crisp.

But the flavour. How can I put it? Very sharp tomato ketchup. That's how.

No prawns were harmed in the making of these crisps which are suitable for vegetarians. And you might think that they are suitable for healthy eaters because just like breakfast cereals they contain iron, thiamin and niacin. I wonder why?

On the other hand you might say they really aren't suitable for healthy eaters because of all the Disodium 5 Ribonucleotide and Sodium Diacetate etc. Surely these days a proper crisp doesn't need to be covered in chemicals.

Oh yes, and the tomato ketchup taste? Where does that come from? No idea at all. Unless from the mystery "flavouring" on the list of ingredients.

The reluctant taste testers were not impressed. The extremely senior volunteer taste tester ate one and a half bags (at the very least) all by himself. But I have to tell you that he'll eat almost anything. We don't think he's allowed crispy snacks at home.
