Two Pints of Baileys and a Packet of Brussels Sprouts Crisps, Please

By Gary Cutlack on at

Walkers is about to launch three new types of crisp packet that will eventually end up preserved at the bottom of the Mariana Trench for millennia, and one of them will divide the country like never before. There will soon be a Brussels. Sprout. Flavour. Crisp. Packet. Containing Brussels. Sprout. Flavour. Crisps.

Yes, Brussels sprout flavour crisps are bang in the middle of the Walkers festive display triptych of new novelty flavours, set to launch in mid-October, as that seems to be when our minds surrender to it inevitably going to be Christmas again soon, and we start getting a bit emotional in the snacks aisle and are suggestible to trying new and exciting and potentially horrible-tasting things.

There will also be ham and pigs in blanket flavours, both of which will inevitably taste like chicken after two mouthfuls. The Brussels sprout one, though. You have to admit that sounds interesting. They launch on October 15. [Talking Retail]
