Walkers Brussels Sprout Crisps Review

Walkers Brussels Sprout Crisps

It wouldn't be nearly Winter without an assortment of weird new products on shelves, and this year is no exception - there's oddities like Christmas Tree flavour Crisps, Prosecco and Gin flavour crisps and even Pigs in Blankets and Brussels Sprouts tea...so what's left? Brussels Sprouts crisps of course!

I knew these were coming out, so they weren't much of a surprise when I spotted a multipack in Sainsbury's over the weekend...and straight into my basket it went.

What a lovely shade of green!

The multipacks cost £1 and are called "Christmas Dinner for Sprout Lovers", with two other flavours: Pigs in Blankets and Turkey & Stuffing (speaking of Pigs In Blankets - Asda are selling a huge "Pig in Blanket" for £5 - check out my Instagram page for pics!)

I'll focus on the most unusual flavour from the multipack today - brussels sprouts! My most hated and feared vegetable, yet one I still keep trying in all its weird incarnations. Opening the bag, these certainly had a sulphurous sprout-like aroma, and an odd shade of green - almost like green potatoes. Scary!

I took a bite, and as expected they did have the familiar sprout-like flavour, but luckily it was mild enough to be inoffensive. Certainly nothing like the horror that was Brussels Sprout Flavour Tea, anyway! I managed to finish the bag which is an achievement for someone who loathes sprouts so much - I even started to enjoy them after a few handfuls. They definitely make for an interesting novelty and I'd say are worth a try just for the fun of it. The other flavours in the pack make it a pretty decent selection overall; the Pigs in Blankets is rather similar to Smoky Bacon whilst the Turkey & Stuffing is like Walkers Roast Chicken.

All in all then, as novelty products go this one really isn't too bad - what a revelation! I'm tempted now to try the Prosecco and Peppercorn Xmas Dinner Pringles that were recently released...anyone dare me?!

  1. That shade of green makes them look like they're not fit for human consumption! Oh Kev, you're so brave this festive season. :D

  3. I love sprouts - would be interesting to try - i dont really want this multipack though, i dont eat bacon crisps - i like the taste but dont like the fact they repeat on you for approx a decade.

    1. Yeah that was definitely a downside to them :(

    2. The sprout ones repeated on me for hours. The burps only intensified the sprout taste. They were ok though.
