What ever happened to standard perri crisps ???
I knw they still do a few products like spicy rings, catering crisps etc but they used to do normal Cheese and Onion and S&V ones 

Discos are also legendary but hard to get 

No Manhattan crisps in Waterford, how come they never went national?

ALDi currently have a 45g bag for sale as part of what appears to be a thrown together multipack, as the packs are just in a clear plastic packaging. Anyhow, my point on this is directed in particular to crisp sambo fans. You’d get a well filled sambo and a decent amount leftover with the 45g bag.

I also notice that with Aldi and Lidl multipack purchases, i've bought a few and some of the individual packs of crips are sealed to the actual outer. This sometimes breaks the seal in the said pack of crips, therefore leaving you with a stale mess.

Dunnes Stores big bag packets all the flavours are exceptional and the crunch isn't too hard. I can pm you my bank details and you can send me your thanks once you try them 
It would damage this forums' reputation

A top quality bag of crisps. Wasn’t expecting much when I first tried them. Straight into my top 3 crisps also.

I have been looking to see where you can get these Ballymaloe Relish crisps here and can't find anything. I think they would be worth sampling.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I was talking about the red pack, the cheese and onion flavour.
Picked up the ballymaloe ones earlier. Dear God almighty they are so flavourful.  Yet to try on a Sandwich but predicting top marks

They actually sell a large bag of those in most centras.
Please name some specific Centras which sell large bags of these, because I have not seen them.

Even if it's 200 miles away, I will break lockdown to travel to wherever these large bags are being sold.
