C&O should be green
S&V should be blue. Pale blue at that.
Anyway, bring back Smith's Bovril crisps. They were just the best. The Walkers Marmite ones don't even get close.

Think I last ate these in the 1970's. Very strange cheese.
You can still get them now. Just go in Morrisons & ask loudly if anyone's got cheesy balls.

C&O Green, S&V Blue. Simple as.

Prawn Cocktail crisps are rank, there are only two things that smell like Prawn Cocktail crisps, and one of them is Prawn Cocktail crisps, the other..................

I love Roysters T Bone Steak flavour crisps, they taste like what they ought to.
Golden Wonder Sausage and Tomato are another favourite of mine.

Crisp packet colours - salt & vinegar blue, cheese & onion green, or salt & vinegar green, cheese & onion blue?
As cheese is more often than not yellow in colour, I'd say neither. Brannigan's beef and mustard are the king of crisps.

And this.

It's a bigger question than that, the true question should be Walkers or Golden Wonder?

However Green for Salt and Vinegar(Walkers) for me. Also so much vinegar that I get a healthy sweat.

Also Beef Hula Hoops (only grab bag size!) Or Kettle Chips Red Pepper and Sweet Chilli.

I would gladly eat an out of date pack of Football Crazy's if it meant one last munch on those wonders. I think I sent the local cornershop owner into early retirement on my daily purchases of those back in the day.

Blue cheese flavoured Jacob's cheeslets is the way to go, I eat them secretly as my 2 dogs are fond of them too and they are only small packets
These are amazing :thup:
