Will check out the Birmingham Perry Barr branch and update on availability

Hot
These are sometimes on offer in Asda for £1

NOT available in the Birmingham Perry Barr branch

Notice it is 5 packs not 6 like you get for £1 elsewhere. Still not a bad price though.

What does 'real hand cooked' actually mean? Considering they must sell millions of these per year how on earth can they all be hand cooked? Is there an army of people somewhere cooking these?

Or is pressing an ON button on a fryer good enough for them to be described as hand cooked?

As opposed to fake?

I think they rub their hands together really fast for a few hours until hot enough to cook the crisps.

I managed to cook a bag up last month but it was hard work

Hand cooked with the hands of virgins. Either by a virgin having direct contact with the crisps or a virgins hands pressing the buttons on the machine.

Apparently it means that they are raked by hand as they go past on a conveyor belt - or something like that - according to wikipedia.

Classic or original potato chips: The chips are moved through a fryer on a conveyor belt.
Kettle-cooked chips: The snacks are made in small batches without a conveyor belt.
Handmade or hand-cooked chips: No automated machinery is used to peel, slice, or fry the potatoes.
Baked chips: Cooked in an oven rather than fried in oil, they contain less fat and fewer calories than fried chips.
Crisps: These are made from potatoes that have been dehydrated, flaked, rehydrated, and pressed into uniform shapes. Pringles and Lays Stax are crisps.
Natural potato chips: According to the Food and Drug Administration, natural potato chips cannot contain artificial flavorings, colors, or preservatives.
Light chips: The product contains half the fat of, or one-third fewer calories than, regular chips.
Reduced-fat chips: Contain at least 25 percent fewer calories than the standard product.

Will check out the West Bromwich branch and update on availability

That's a great price. These Crisps are class.

Ermm..thanks...I think

6 pack for this price in my local.

Good deal, voted hot as one of my favourite crisps.

Although the RRP is rather dubious for 5 bags!

So can use machinery, as long as its not automated. LOL "So what does automated machinery actually mean?"

Walkers have reduced their 6 packs to 4 packs and kept their price the same so I guess reducing these 6 to 5 isn't so bad.

they used to do a jalapeño flavour that was amazing. but the last time i tried it they had changed to a bizarre beef type joke. .. strange

Plentiful stock in the West Bromwich branch

Because of this deal looked for them just now and got 6 Salt n Vinegar for 65p or 69p. Better price than your std Golden Wonder/Walkers. Will be tasing tonight.

They are ok. Lots of vinegar not much salt. Added my own salt.

Will vote hot. Only ready salted left in Bury.
