Walkers Worcester Sauce Potato Crisps & Wasteful Wednesdays: My Paper Towel Abuse
Junk Food Nation, I have an admission to make. I am usually pretty green – turn the lights off when I leave a room, recycle like a fiend, use cloth grocery bags, reuse scrap paper, employ a reusable water bottle etc. But I do have one vice which I am trying to break, and it’s my most UN-green habit of all. I waste paper towels.
Trust me, I’m not happy about it. But I’m just so used to it – from public restrooms to school bathrooms, I am confronted with paper towels. So I use them, and my hands are used to grabbing for that absorbent material with any bit of wetness.
What happens? Well, in the kitchen what ends up happening is I have a pile of partially wet/partially drying paper towels next to the sink that I dry my hands on next time. Why not just have a kitchen towel? I’ve asked myself the same question a million times. I’m trying to fix it, JFN – trust me. I have a kitchen towel now that I try to remember to use, but I am, indeed, a 5-year old. I bite my nails when I’m nervous and I reach for paper towels instinctively. Sigh.

Today’s junk food: Walkers Worcester Sauce Potato Crisps!
These Walkers Worcester Sauce Potato Crisps are the last of my Walkers stash from Ireland. Note that these aren’t worcestershire sauce crisps, but worcester chips. So…Wus-ter chips. Worcester sauce is, according to Wiki, the same as worcestershire sauce, so the last two sentences really have no meaning or relevance. Moving on…
Why’d I save these Walkers Worcester Sauce Potato Crisps for last? Well, to be honest – because I forgot I had them! They were buried under a few other Irish snacks (yep, there’s still a couple more left) and lemme tell you, I was STOKED when I uncovered them. It’s like finding five bucks in your pocket. If the bill was covered in worcester sauce.
Walkers Worcester Sauce Potato Crisps contain a slew of ingredients, because worcester sauce is made of a slew of ingredients. What do you guys use it for? Apparently, worcestershire sauce can be used to flavor any meat and soups and drinks, but I have only sued it when making juicy hamburgers. Is there a more common deployment of this sauce?
Walkers Worcester Sauce Potato Crisps tasted exactly as you’d expect them to taste – like potato chips dipped in Worcestershire Sauce. The crisps were light and crispy, and in the traditional not-too-greasy Walkers style. Really good. Salty but not too salty, and didn’t leave me feeling gross.
The flavor? As soon as it hits your tongue you get that smoky tang of worcestershire sauce, almost like a sour ketchup/vinegar flavor. There’s a slightly sweet taste as the onion and garlic powders come out to round out the savory taste. Finally, as the taste ends, you get that nice ground black pepper afterbite.
Unlike the Prawn Cocktail crisps, which tasted like cocktail sauce through and through, I must say these were even tastier. It’s as if Walkers took a chip, made it taste like worcestershire sauce, and then made it just a LITTTTLE more savory. Very acidic. This was like a smoky salt & vinegar chip.
Simply excellent. Would definitely eat these again.
