FREAK OUT! More snacks are missing!

Published: 10th Mar, 2009

It’s getting scary now…


It seems like only yesterday when we expressed concern over some missing crisps, and it looks like we’re not alone when it comes to lying in bed at night, staring open-eyed at the dark ceiling, imagining all the worst case scenarios for these snacks. Fantastic contributor to the site, Debs, has clocked a lack of Salt n Shake, Discos, Sky Divers, Nik Naks, Toffos, and the elusive Pyramints on modern newsagent shelves. While friend of the site Matt has been going out of his mind trying to track down a tasty packet of Worcester Sauce French Fries.

Matt also expressed some concern over cans of Lilt, but no need to worry. The good news, Matt, is that those have been tracked down, and do still exist.

If you’ve seen any of the above missing items, happily stocked in a local shop, please leave a comment… we’re insane with worry.

    THIS IS BULLSH!T INTERESTMENT. I’ve recently enjoyed “discos”, “french fries” AND “salt ‘n’ shake” crisps.

    Salt and Vin Discos are easily available. Get the multipack for delicious Beef and slightly shit Cheese and Onion.

    pretty sure that Lilt in cans has been discontinued or praps i am looking in the wrong (ie: London) chiller cabinets

    Discos are everywhere

    Tell you what has gone though – Phileas Fogg Mignons Morceaux and Shanghai Nuts. That was a pub snack

    I can’t remember exactly -although, I think the “French Fries” were from “Boots”

    I remember Phillias Fogg Shanghai nuts too! They were amazing and I do miss them. They were the best snacks around.

    Bring back Shanghai Nuts PLEASE!
