The thing about the crisps is, they were SO GOOD originally, it's the fact they've gone of so badly and even when you get a 'good' packet, they aren't as good as they were. As to who makes them - well, I would say without a dadow of a shout that it's not Walkers, as they used to state in their advertising that they did not make crisps for anyone else. Things do change of course, so I've been on their website and asked through their enquiry setup. I also mailed Seabrooks about a week ago, no reply so far. If someone comes back with 'that is commercially sensitive' or 'no comment', a conclusion can be drawn I think. The Chilli are ok but still not as good as the others were, to me. When they came out, I assumed that the crisps were made by a small company Sam's had bought - it's what he does with everything else!
