    Also. People who don’t like olives should be sent to prison.

    I am a heterosexual man and I don’t like Monster Munch.

    You can come out of the closet now. You’re amongst friends. Well, you’re amongst complete strangers on the Internet and we promise not to take the micky. Well, we might not do it a lot. Well, ok, we’ll mercilessly take the piss, but we’ll be laughing with you, not at you. Well, actually we won’t. You know, it doesn’t look good for you, if I’m honest.

    If I’m honest I have let my curiosity get the better of me recently. But I still can’t stand them. I don’t like the flavour or the ‘sticking to the roof of my mouth’ thing.

    Seabrook crisps are far and away the best ‘standard’ crisp.

    If you’ve never had ‘owt’ better, perhaps.

    Ah, so sad to see all this. I think the government should organise some emergency supplies of Walkers and Golden Wonder to be airlifted to the North as soon as possible, end this suffering. πŸ™

    I thought nowadays a bowl of olives had replaced crisps as the pub snack of choice daaaaahn saaaaarf Fred? Or some swans livers if you were particularly peckish?

    Not the pubs I go to. The whine bahs Flashy and Stoner and the like might frequent, maybe, but where I go you get proper crisps, and fish n chips to die for:

    From the Grapes in Limehouse. Famous for it’s fish n chips. Fresh fish every day, top-grade chips, and the most sublime mushy peas you’ve ever tasted. All that for Β£8-9 or something. I’m sure some Northerner will be along to say you can get all that and a pint of warm beer for thruppence or something, but come down here and try some. You will not be disappoint.

    Olives on the bar?? Eh?? You sure, not where we live SonnyJim, they’d flatten the Mirco Brewery Real Ale’ist in all of us. They’re fine if drinking wine or savory cocktails, but never with beer, ewe, megga ewe.
    Now if you are talking Nuts on the bar, then ewe too.. all that finger grabbing/haven’t washed hands from the vist to the loo syndrome.. no, no thanks.
    Quavers and Guiness come recommended from me, have been known to miss supper for a couple of pints and a couple of bags of cheesy Quavers.

    Another fan of Seabrooks Ready Salted here but those Jacket Potato and Butter are disgusting. They’re so sweet and have a horrible after taste.

    No you don’t; you get something that’s bin deep frozen for several centuries, some McCains if you’re lucky, and Happy Shopper peas. Unles you live near Grimsby, and quite frankly, who wants to do that? 😯

    kettle chips for me are a bit too greasy and crunchy.

    i like the red sky crisps and McCoys are great if you ignore the nutrition advice on the back.

    I also like smiths crisps that you salt yourself, chuck away the salt and you’re left with greasy potatoes.

    oh an artichokes on pizza are awesome.

    Can I mention Pringles here, are they a proper crisp?

    Love kettle chips, crushed up and mixed with grated cheese and onion and popped on top of a pasta bake for 10 mins for that perfect crunchy topping!

    In the interests of research I’ve just eaten a packet of the jacket spud seabrook. They’re not good! You should stick to what you know really. Its a bit like a group of northern blokes forsaking an evening of ale, darts and whippets to attend a contemporary dance event! It’s never going to end well

    Santacoops – quite alright. Youre pretty much spot on with the rest of your potato based snack views so ill forgive you this.

    The tyrells popcorn is fantastic though clearly falls down on the fact it doesnt have any potato in it.

    In fairness, I have eaten fish n chips in all sorts of places around England and Wales, from scabby local chippies to posh(ish) restaurants, and The Grapes’ offerings are superb, and unbeatable for value imo. Simple, unpretentious food cooked properly.

    Take Gordon Ramsey’s The Narrow just down the road though; I won’t go in there now, unless it’s for a pint as they do Meantime beer in there. Now if you want overpriced, pretentious, soulless and poncified, then the Narrow is perfect. Microwaved pre-prepared food at restaurant prices. It’s little more than a glorified canteen; noisy, impersonal and rushed.

    People will turn their noses up at the Grapes, with it’s authentic decor and a few smelly dogs, and go and get ripped off in The Narrow, thinking they’re oh so sophisticated. Mugs. GR is laughing at you as he counts his money…

    I accept the bit about Grimsby tho

    It’s sad though really isn’t it? πŸ™
