One of the major UK potato crisp manufacturers, Walkers, has asked the Great British Public to come up with new flavours to add to their range. They have made the six most popular, as a limited edition range, and we now have to vote for the one we want to remain in the range.
The six are: Fish & Chips, Chilli & Chocolate, Crispy Duck & Hoisin, Onion Bhaji, Builders Breakfast and Cajun Squirrel.
Now, the squirrel really intrigues me; I’ve never tasted squirrel. Imagine my disapppointment when I tried them, and the taste was just that generic crisp flavour with a vague hint of cajun flavour. I checked the ingredients - and there’s no bloody squirrel in it! Not crushed, au tartare or roasted. No furry tail veloute. Nada. Zilch. Apart from feeling deprived by the lack of squirrel, I’m surprised it’s not against the trade description act or something to misleadingly dangle a squirrel in front of me.
Yes, but as I said, in the ingredients there’s no squirrel listed; not even squirrel flavouring. Not even listed as an anagram or palindrome. And I’ve tried reading the packet upside down: still no squirrel.
Actually, I’m beginning to think that this might be something to do with the SLF*. I remember reading about them: they’re dedicated to removing squirrels from food. I don’t know if any of you can remember, but there used to be squirrel in, for example, Baked Alaska, but those bastards got it taken out. I can recognise their methods.
