Walkers Stax Limited Edition Sour Cream & Onion
Lay's Stax, yes. Of course I've seen them on websites and so on, but they've never been available in this country. Because as you know, we don't have the Lay's brand here. But Lay's is Walkers in disguise (or vice versa) and maybe Walkers have decided to trial a Stax brand.
So what do we think?
Well, obviously this is the Walkers (Lay's) version of a Pringle. Stax come in a tube but with a cardboard lid not a plastic one. And Pringles are circular while Stax are more of an oblong. Which I like. Because they fit in my mouth better. Pringles are too big. Or I have a small mouth.
But aside from that this is pretty much the same product. Doing its best to avoid copyright issues.
Most of the reluctant taste testers (except those who don't enjoy Pringles) rather enjoyed this crispy snack and quite a lot were eaten up. I have to say that when I first tried I thought the oniony taste was very strong, and then it rather grew on me. But since I had some sour cream and chive dip handy I tried it with these crisps.
You might suppose that a sour cream and chive dip combined with a sour cream and onion crispy snack would be too much of a good thing. But guess what? The two tastes combined to successful effect and I thought worked very well.
What did we think? Rather good. Now, can I find another flavour before this limited edition disappears forever?
