It's the real World Cup

Some of you might remember last year that I tasted and posted about all the new Walkers crisp flavours, settling on the English Breakfast as the winner. This year, in support of the World Cup, comes the Flavour Cup, 15 new flavours from some of the participating countries (and Wales).

So I'm going to put these to the taste test too and have a little competition. Anyone who can correctly guess my top three from the list will receive a multipack of the crisps.

Here, in the order as tried by Charlie Brooker, are the contenders:

Japanese chicken teriyaki
Scottish haggis
Argentinian flame-grilled steak
English roast beef and yorkshire pudding
German bratwurst sausage
Dutch edam
Welsh rarebit
South African sweet chutney
Italian spaghetti bolognese
Brazilian salsa
Spanish chicken paella
Irish stew
French garlic baguette
Australian BBQ kangaroo
American cheeseburger

How much to get a multipack without winning?

Some of those flavours don't sound like a great match for crisps, and too many are variations on beef. I'll go for -
Japanese Chicken teriyaki
South African Sweet chutney
Welsh rarebit

Also colour me disappointed they didn't attempt Korean Kimchi. It's also a shame Iceland didn't qualify (but then, neither did Scotland, Ireland or Wales...), as Rotted Shark might have been fun.

I've had harkl, rotted shark. It tastes of piss. Pickled rams' testicles were much nicer.

Scots haggis
Brazilian salsa
BBQ Kangaroo

At a guess. Just so long as I don't have to eat Cajun Squirrel again. They were nasty.

Looking forward to trying ALL of the above!

I guess they started planning this before the qualification period was complete. Or else they think people are actually going to actively seek out Irish stew flavour crisps in preference to, I don't know, a harissa-flavoured Algerian one.
