It wouldn't be an economic cycle if we, as a race of humans, didn't find ourselves in something of monetary pickle now and then now would it? And so it is, that in the year 2012 we're scraping around for cash in every situation we find ourselves in. Be it our democratically elected governments asking big banks for loads of money or people like you and I pacing up and down the crisp aisle of supermarkets looking for deals on crisps. And so it was, with the weight of the world on my shoulders, I bought six packets of Tesco Cheese& Onion Crisps for €1.34.
Every day for the next six, I proceded to pack one of these bags in with my lunch. But do these crisps taste like actual austerity? Excellent question. Well first off there aren't a lot in the bag, so that's not a good start, but the actual crisps themselves are quite the surprise indeed. Not overly cheesy or salty, but not under seasoned either, they're sitting on the taste fence as it were, and that's a fine place to be. Texture wise they are a little brittle, but that's fine too. They taste just fine, but when you add the secret ingredient of value you're looking at a real winner. These crisps are great, cheap and come in a funny looking bag. What's not to like?
So Tesco Cheese & Onion then, one of the tastier aspects of the credit crunch! ....... oh dear.
