Woolly Knitted Wotsits

Anyone who knows me is aware that I am a huge fan of Walkers Cheesy Wotsits and other Wotsit-alike crispy snacks. But what about this one?

Spotted on Instagram, this woolly Wotsit snack is by textile artist Kate Jenkins. Isn’t this fun? A packet of knitted Wotsits.

You can find more of her fascinating work here at Kate Jenkins Studio.

Ficosota Food Maretti Oven Baked Bruschette Chips Pizza

I saw this little 70g packet of crispy snacks when I ran down the road for the weekend newspapers. I thought we had tried this style of snack before, but I was fairly sure we hadn’t tried Pizza. And, no, we hadn’t.

We’ve tried Maretti Bruschette in Italian Ham, Mixed Vegetables, Mixed Cheese, Roasted Garlic, Mushrooms and Cream, and Spinach and Cheese. All back in 2016 and 17. Back then the maker’s name was Ital. And now here we have Pizza. 

It’s a pity the Pizza flavour isn’t as pizza-y as it might be. But it’s a tasty snack with a good crunch.

The Chef agrees. The taste isn’t quite right. But it’s still a very tasty snack. And I can’t help wondering if it might work very well with a dip.

Monster Munch Roast Beef

Isn’t this a great way to use a crisp packet design? I found this work of art on Instagram recently. You can buy Little Fish Designs from 
Art Republic.

Here’s a review of from Monster Munch Pickled Onion flavour from 2013. I have never been mad keen on these crispy snacks; perhaps because I never came across Monster Munch as a child. But I do know a big fan, in fact it’s (now ex-)Managerial Taste Tester’s wife. She has never quite recovered from the most exciting day of her life (except for giving birth to her two children, but apparently not including her wedding day): the day the Monster Munch taste testing team visited her primary school! She and her friends got to trial a bunch of new flavours! Amazing.

Also now available Monster Munch Giants shown here in Roast Beef flavour.
