    Less salt, less fat than before = less taste. Used to love them when I was young (many years ago). Just not as nice now. Bring back artificial flavourings I say.

    Haven't had Monster Munch for ages, but salt and vinegar Disco's still rock! Just a shame you only get about 3 in a bag these days. :suicide: :rolleyes:

    monster munch downsized the pieces too :(

    they used to be thicker and chunkier....and no i'm not thinking back to when i was a kid and my hands were smaller...lol

    but yes, a packet of the beef ones used to leave you so thirsty you'd drink pond water....heh....now you need to the whole 6 pack to get that way....

    Have to say apart from the size difference they taste just fine to me.

    Only eat the Pickled Onion ones though and only if I have a can of Irn Bru as well.
    The burps produced are stupendous in sound and smell quality. :devil:

    I've just had a pack of pickled onion ones and they were .... DELICIOUS!

    I managed to spray crumbs over everyone as well, bit of a brucie bonus.

    However, you no longer get the little monster joke on the back of the packets which I felt a bit miffed at. And I'm 32 - think how disappointed anyone under 20 will be.

    Thats how i remember them! Now they seem to be full of little holes so less crisp = less taste :(

    Don't even get me started on beef Frisps, best crisps ever..................where the hell did they go :confused:

    This really does show how crap British snacks now are, and how :censored:-up our gvoernment have become in the past ten years!

    When sunny Californian raisins, pop tarts, and beef jerky can be bought freely, without any shame, Tony Blair deserves to be shot...

    ... out of a cannonball, minus the crash-helmet, and into the nearest volcano! :devil:

    You have to wonder what kind of pillocks work in the department of snacks, when any ordinary member of society can't get the Monster Munch they know and love :mad:

    No wonder no one calls Great Britain "great" any more, if this is the kind of lesson we're passing on to the rest of the world, when it comes to being "tough on bad snacks" and "tough on the causes of bad snacks"! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    :devil: :devil: :devil:
