Crisp-y cravings.

{sometimes walker's even has classy giveaways, like hiding a a 20 pound note inside the bag!}

My post titles are getting funnier and funnier as I go along (really, I am so clever). So as many of you know--okay, all of you because who am I kidding, I tell everyone I come across--I lived in England for a glorious 2 years of my life, spanning the amazingly awkward ages of 9-11 (my awkward stage began and lasted waaaaay after it should have, but that's a story for another time. My awkward photos are ones for the ages, I tell you).

Why is this relevant today of all days, you ask?

Because who doesn't dream every day for a bag of Walkers Prawn Cocktail Crisps? A true prawn and cocktail flavor in EVERY SINGLE BITE. I mean, I cannot even begin to explain how delicious it is, but the name helps. I mean, "Shrimp Chips" doesn't quite have the same ring to it. Plus, since I am allergic to real prawns (and real lobsters, and real crabs, and real scallops), eating prawn cocktail flavor chips is a great alternative to death.

Lots of people hate British food, but considering that my West-Indian, British-bred parents force fed me baked beans and black pudding since birth, it's only natural that I come out loving perhaps the most disgusting flavor of Walkers crisps created to this date. At least, that's what my brothers said, but they only loved the cheese and onion flavor-- not even the pickled onion Monster Munch-- just plain c&o. Boring.

Hey! I like scones as much as the next person, but I also like curry and bangers...together! And chips for tea time! Who's with me?

Too bad a 48-pack of these babies is $42, plus like $20 shipping. It's probably because they are all healthy and organic and shit. I guess that's the price you pay for wanting 70% less saturated fat.
