Is a crisp the same as potato chip? If so eat it. The green has something to do with something that starts with a G that I learned in Bio-101 a couple of years ago. Sorry for the long-winded technical answer.

As you know, crisps are made from potatoes.
---------------------
Are green potatoes safe to eat?

No, the green section may contain naturally occurring poisons called alkaloids. Potato varieties are not released in Australia if they exceed the maximum level set for alkaloids. This rule minimises the chances of severe poisoning where green potatoes are accidentally eaten.

-----------
So, no it's not really safe to eat them as they may contain poisons.

I think alkaloids are the least of your worries. Any snack item where the Roast Beef flavour is suitable for vegatarians, and the cheese 'n onion flavour isn't, has some serious additive issues, and is best avoided.

It's just "sunburned", meaning just "photosynthesized" potatoes that's taking on chlorophyll.

As discussed via e-mail Mr Cornish - I went for the safe bet as the green ones (which SHOULD be Cheese & Onion) and Salt 'n' Vinegar (which SHOULD be blue) are opposite in Walker's packets (WHY WHY WHY). Early on a Monday morning I went for the red as I don't think I could've done C&O before my first pint of meths.... boggled

I agree entirely. The unwritten law of the universe is that Ready Salted chips are in blue packets, and cheese-and-onion are green. Some at Walkers needs a slap.

See I would recommend a boycott of Walkers, but as they seemingly control the entire UK crisp industry now I'd be cutting off my nose to spite my face. After all I'd have t stop eating Pickled Onion Monster Munch and I don't think I have that much willpower  hissyfit

That goes for Thai Green curry flavoured, basalmic vinegar and sea salt (call it salt and vinegar for god's sake!), aubergine and yoghurt or whatever other god awful ridiculous flvaour they think of next.

Well, I suppose if you're eating Apple Crisps, and they're the Granny Smith Apple kind, there's no problem with eating the green ones. I'd be concerned if they weren't green.  yuck

Walkers should be boycotted, frisps and salt n shake haven't been the same since. And what happened to cheetos, they kicked wotsits arse any day. every walkers crisp tastes the same

Anyone remember 10p packets of puffs, they ruled!

aah this is my arena now

and why have they stopped making whispa chocolate bars! The team of whispa and cheeto beat wotsit and aero so why are we stuck with them

and I have to pay 2 pound fifty to get a packet of nerds imported from america  Sad its wrong!

For you Cornish backward thinking people who still think foil bags are a new invention then I agree that these are poncey crisps, but for us sophisticated Devon-type people these are everyday run-of-the-mill crisps.  Wink

My vote is to grant the exemption

Maybe we could have a chocolate bar Olympics...

Wispa v Aero

Oh Yes (remember them?) v Finger of Fudge (leave the innuendo for now, Cornish Wink)

Cheetos v Wotsits

Frisps v Discos

Pickled Onion Space Invaders v Scampi Nik Naks

Fish n Chips (in the newspaper like packets) v Mini Cheddars

and then we could diversify it....

Shandy Bass v Top Deck Larger & Lime

Cherry Coke v Vanilla (yuk yuk yuk) Coke

Anyone got any others...?
