Is somebody taking the crisp?

Tuna salad roll for m'lunch out in the sun today but what's this, only half in a newly opened packet crisps!

At 60p a shout it's not only 'multi millionaire and everywhere' Gary Lineker taking the crisp.

Questions need to be asked. 😀

If we're talking Walkers crisps, then who actually pays 60p per bag?

Not me for sure, I buy several of the multi-packs containing 6 or 12 x 25g packets at a time, but only when they're on offer.

That usually works out at under 20p per bag.

I've had packets of crisps that look like a Road Roller has gone over them they were that thin.

@RobPN 

Maybe for those multi pack buys, but this 25g bag was 60p from my local Nesta mini supermarket. Don't often buy crisps as to be quite honest they are not my thing beside which the Mrs always does the shopping. Was I diddled?

"Elsewhere, pack sizes have stayed the same but prices have risen. A 32.5g back of Walkers ready Salted is now 3p more expensive on average at 68p, while a bag of Squares is 70p now - an increase of 5p - according to The Grocer. Wotsits have also increased in price on average by 24p up to £1.56 for a six-bag multipack, it's said... "

Link 

Sorry the above is from The Sun but first google result... and from 2019 so I guess they have gone up even more now.

But even so and at whatever the price, half a packet?

PS. Yes Walkers, hence the Gary Lineker quip.... but I did not want to advertise. 🙂

Well well @RobPN 

Mrs Minivanman just back from shopping with would you Adam and Eve, a Walkers multipack of crisps.

Six packets for £1.50 is err... 25p per packet.

And the moral of the story is, check before I buy.   😳

Well they'd better be more than half full!

Re: Is somebody taking the crisp?

Even cheaper if you buy the offers @Minivanman ...

e.g. I stocked up from Asda yesterday where the present (regular) offer is 3 x 6 x 25g for £3.50, so 19.4̇p per packet Wink

 

I use trolley.co.uk to find which shops have the best offers on at any given time, and I've got a list of about 15-20 URLs direct to the products of interest saved in their own favourites folder in a browser on my phone, so a couple of taps and I know the best price for any of those items Wink

e.g. Walkers Cheese & Onion 25g :
