Prawn Cocktail Crisps Australia

Recommended Posts

Yes, I know, third world matters, but I just saw on the grapevine that Aldi are now stocking Prawn Cocktail Crisps. I’m not sure if they will taste as good as walkers, mind you my favourite were seabrook crinkle cut prawn cocktail.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Makes me hungry for a packet of Skips, or even some scampi fries, do they even make them anymore?!!?

I’ve purchased Skips at the British Lolly Shops before along with Monster Munch, French Fries (Worcester Sauce) and Chip Sticks.

I loved these but never seen them here

Tick food and when asked just say they are British crisps. Usually met by a roll of the eyes, unless the Customs person is British in which case they may ask for a taste!!

I like skips but not normal crisps that are prawn cocktail flavour.. I like (and miss) Quavers too.

JJ'S are about the nearest i've found to an equivalent.

I brought some Walkers recently from a "British Sweets and Treats" store in Sydney (Woolworths also have a British section). But not as good as I remember them. Like everything in life - doesn't seem to taste as good when an adult.

What about Thins 'Light and Tangy'?  U reckon they're close to prawn cocktail?

The best could be the chilli chips from Aldi.  Seriously hot, and no MSG

Disgusting. Can't stand the things. Must be a British thing. Tastes nothing like a prawn cocktail.

Foul - must be an acquired taste I guess. I avoid that horrible raw chilli flavour too, quite disgusting. I had some vegetable chips I liked , think they may have been from Costco.

my friend just finished a150g of your prawn chips and they were very moreish I heard that the chips are not going to be on the shelf for long.  

I hope that doesn't happen as they are too tasty not to be on the shelves all the time. I hope they stay at Aldi s Stores all the time. We are huge fans of this flavour and hope will be around years to come.

I’ve got 2 packets in the larder I bought for my daughter next time she visits. Haven’t told her as they might not last that long.
