massively anti-gums, definitely

in france there's an illegal practice of eating whole songbirds cooked in madeira wine, so shameful is the practice the eating is all done under cover of a teatowel (master of shameful practices, jeremy clarkson, has done it)

you eat the bird bones and all and the tiny bone fragments lacerate one's gums so that the madeira wine, the fat and flesh of the bird and one's own blood mix creating what is considered by some to be a rare taste sensation

I always think eating kettle chips is much the same- a mouthful of sea salt with crushed black peppercorns, your shredded gums and your own bloody saliva creates a taste sensation fit for a clarkson

If they're anything like the Jalapeno & Habanero flavour you get this end (which aren't particularly hot, but, then again, I'm pretty used to spicy food), I want to try them :)

the other flavours were too grim to even contemplate
My housemate and I drunkenly lined up most of the flavours and sat eating them for about hour. Here's the verdicts. Excited?

Onion bhaji flavour is pointless. It's just cheese & onion flavour, but less cheesy. No cheesy, actually.

Fish & chips is just Nik Naks 'Scampi' flavour. Bit odd and 'cheap' tasting, but I quite liked them.

Hoisin duck was odd. Too much plum.

Builders breakfast. Egg fucking crisps. EGG FUCKING CRISPS. They don't taste so eggy once you've chewed on 'em a bit, but they're still chuffing rank.

Chilli & chocolate. Dire. As my housemate pointed out, they taste of 'brown'.

Cajun squirrel. Probably the best flavour, along with Fish & Chips, but I wasn't really tasting much squirrel. Though, if I'm honest, I have little reference. As someone else said, they should've been more spicy.

Crisps!

I'm partaking of some of these walker's world cup crisps- the american cheeseburger ones... they are vaguely reminscent, in flavour, of what it might taste like if you sucked the grease out of the bottom of a mcdonalds bag

I ate the Brazilian ones the other day. Munchety scrunchety. The German bratwurst ones are nowt special though.

Disappointed Iceland didn't qualify. Rotten shark and volcanic ash flavour could have been interesting.

Regrettably more salsa than coffee. Nice though.

those flavours in full:
English Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding
French Garlic Baguette
Irish Stew
Japanese Teriyaki Chicken
Dutch Edam Cheese
Brazilian Salsa
Argentinean Flame Grilled Steak
American Cheeseburger
Australian BBQ Kangaroo
German Bratwurst Sausage
Italian Spaghetti Bolognese
Scottish Haggis
South African Sweet Chutney
Spanish Chicken Paella
Welsh Rarebit
they all sound quite horrible

but, more importantly, what does charlton brooker have to say?

Dunno what Ireland, Scotland and Wales are doing in there, hoho.

It's all just Amusing Food Stereotypes isn't it? In context it's a slight relief North Korea aren't on the list.

Didn't Walkers, at one World Cup, change the name of Salt n Vinegar to Salt n Lineker? Or did I just make that up?

That definitely happened, I don't think it was World Cup related though. Just an extension of the global Lineker brand.

Still, I'd like to try all of those flavours, as long as none of them contain egg. That Builder's Breakfast flavour haunts me to this day.

Here we go:

Lineker's involvement with Walkers caused Mark E. Smith, singer with The Fall, to coin the nickname 'Crisp Man' for him.

My mission is clear. I am going to repeat Brooker's experiment, but I shall be going the extra mile, I will in fact actually eat the actual crisps during the actual matches of the actual countries during the actual world actual cup.

Thus handily avoiding the haggis flavour. I've already done that joke haven't I?

That Mark E. Smith is quite the card.

I just nearly wet myself at that. Why did that happen? It's not that funny, is it?
