Walkers World Cup Crisps 2010

8 08 2010

This year, Walkers launched the World Cup Flavour Cup. They released 15 new flavours of crisps, though not necessarily competing countries, and I made it my aim to try them all. Last night, my housemate, Alana and I sat down and tried them all!
We scored them based on: appealingness of name, realisticness of taste, and actual enjoyment of taste. We took an average for ranking purposes, and the combined results are below!

= 1. American Cheeseburger
= 1. French Garlic Baguette
3. Argentinian Flame Grilled Steak
4. South African Sweet Chutney
5. English Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding
= 6. Italian Spaghetti Bolognaise
= 6. Brazilian Salsa
= 8. Dutch Edam Cheese
= 8. Japanese Teriyaki Chicken
10. Welsh Rarebit
11. German Bratwurst Sausage
12. Irish Stew
13. Spanish Chicken Paella
14. Australian BBQ Kangaroo
15. Scottish Haggis

And here’s the Breakdown of our scoring. Obviously some of the flavours we’d never tried in real life, so couldn’t given them a “realistic” score.

I’m having an internal debate

5 08 2010

You know how sometimes you will walk out of a shop (or off of an internet page) and think, “Hey, that was really good service in there, I should really tell someone about it!” or “Well I’m never going there again!”. I thought this would be a good place for me to share a couple of my experiences with you all; giving credit where credit’s due, and maybe adding a bit of wariness with some other places.

I’m not sure though.

I’m definitely thinking it’s a good idea to hand out a few positive comments to places who’ve done really well, but I’m not sure about the negative stuff.
All I would put would be factual, but I don’t want to get in trouble, and don’t really want to offend (too much!)

Anyone any thoughts or advice?
