Yes they are. Any potato, maize or corn snacks like this are classed as … Yes they are. Any potato, maize or corn snacks like this are classed as 'crisps'. Not just potato based products.



I'd have to disagree, i would call them corn snacks. Crisps are made from potatoes only, hence the reason they call crisps chips in America etc. Monster munch, space raiders wottsits etc all corn snacks.

Whats MSG?



Monosodium Glutamate - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monosodium_glutamate

It's a salt-flavoured amino acid, and isn't massively good for you!

Taste skanky. Lush.

This is a common misconception. MSG stands for monosodium glutamate. Glutamate is a naturally occuring amino acid. It's found it loads of everday foods such as ripe tomatoes, parmesan cheese, mushrooms. It's basically that 'meaty' taste you get from some foods. You'll know what I mean if you've ever eaten a packet of Steak McCoys or Chinese Takeaway food. The Japanese call this taste 'umami'.

MSG is chemically created glutamate that has been turned into a salt. However the body doesn't distinguish between naturally occuring glutamate and the chemically created MSG. Some people are allergic to MSG, but that means they're also allergic to natural glutamate.

There's been no solid evidence that MSG is bad for you in anyway. It's in loads of processed food, especially crisps. Manufacturers have been taking the MSG out of crisps due to public fears of MSG's safety, which personally annoys me. A packet of skips these days taste of hardly anything and I'm fairly sure it's because they've removed the MSG. Asians eat ramen noodles all the time, if MSG were truly bad for you, they'd all be ill because instant ramen contains a lot of MSG, you can see it when you pour out the flavouring packet. It's all the white crystals.

TL:DR MSG is absolutely fine to consume, UNLESS you happen to be allergic to glutamate which is a small majority. The body doesn't differentiate between chemically produced MSG or natural glutamate.

not long moved from Scotland to NI and tried to get these in Asda Kilkeel but none there:(
