Pickled onion Monster Munch are where it's at.
Anyone recall Smiths Horror Snacks from the late 70's?
I loved salt n vinegar bones and cheese fangs.
Pickled onion space Raiders! The students' choice.
Where has all Japanese design went to?

They've got to be the best.
I have to put my hand up and say know crisps in the car (i'm hanging my head in shame). I don't link many foods in the car, but non crumbly chocolate (i.e. nothing like a flake) is allowed. Twix is perfect, along with a coke zero in the cup holder.
crisps - great! they're totally responsible for my love tyres
but more importantly among you 'crisp lovers' - how many of you eat them in the car?
Many drivers i know won't allow anybody to munch in the car! ...and even if the journey is 4 hours long!
I'm curious to know if this is a common trait with car lovers!
Hedgehog Flavoured Crisps : In the UK in 1981, Hedgehog Foods Ltd decided, as a joke, to produce Hedgehog flavoured crisps (potato chips). To everyone's surprise, the crisps were a huge success.
Hedgehog flavoured crisps were actually flavoured with pork fat and no hedgehogs were used in the manufacturing process. Consequently, it wasn't long before Hedgehog Foods Ltd was in court (1982), up against the Office of Fair Trading, on a charge of false advertising.
Bizarrely, a settlement was finally reached when Mr Lewis, of Hedgehog Foods, interviewed gypsies who actually did eat baked hedgehogs, to ascertain the flavour of hedgehogs. Mr Lewis then commissioned a flavourings firm to duplicate the flavour as closely as possible and changed the labels from "hedgehog flavoured" to "hedgehog flavour" and all interests were satisfied!

It's all about the twisties........
Please don't ask me why I remember this.....
The crisps existed and they were supposed to actually taste like hedgehogs. I remember the up roar at the time, it even made it on to Newsround and Blue Peter!. It was a sales gimic and completely synthetic but I seem to remember it was to stop gypsies eating the prickly little creatures!
Infact I'm going to Google it now. I'll be back if I find anything interesting!
Were Hedgehog Flavoured Crisps not something of an urban myth? That's not to say they did not exist, but rather Hedgehog was the brand, and the product was simply called Flavoured Crisps, as in "Hedgehog. Flavoured Crisps"
If I knew what I was getting into, I wouldn't have done it...and I would have been wrong.
This has now got me thinking!
Can you still buy Hedgehog flavoured crisps?
Thats a blast from the past !
Thanks to this thread, I am now eating a big bag of Wotsits, 200 calories, 33% fat. Marvellous!
