OH DEAR GOD! More snack news…

Published: 11th Mar, 2009

Once upon a time, these were king…


Back before your Kettle Chips and your Pringles, the truest sign of snack sophistication was to have a few bags of Phileas Fogg littered cleverly about the house. Punjab Puri, Shanghai Nuts, and the amazing Mignons Morceaux – mini crunchy garlic breads, for those who haven’t had the pleasure – these were the kind of crisps you could imagine Lady Diana insisting on at a royal gala or a dinner party. And yet, as noticed by great friend of the site, Matt, they have all gone missing.

It’s another outrage, people. Another snack outrage.

    OMG what a travesty. They were so delicious. My friend from school’s parents were way posher than mine and used to give them to me as a snack when I visited. I loved going to their house for this reason. I felt like a princess.
    Phileas Fogg used to do well nice nacho cheese flavour tortilla chips, are those now consigned to my taste memory too?

    I used to love these.
    I also used to enjoy reading the story on the back explaining how he had discovered each snack.
