Dearest Sweettie Pies,

As a Sheepy I am of course tender, sweet, succulent and very tasty !  I hope to remain so for a very long time !

Look at these crisps though  (US TRANSLATION SERVICE: Crisps = Chips....sheesh !)



Nice eh ?...all types fine flavoured fayre happening there  !

How Do they make all the flavoured crisps the flavour they are ?. Cheese and onion, salt and vinegar, bacon ? roast chicken ??..BBQ beef ? etc etc.........what about things like perfumes ?..how do they make perfumes smell of vanilla or rose or whatever ?....Just how do they get these flavours ?



I asked Neda our Bulgarian Cleaner and she just said ' the bus was late' !!!....so...no joy there !!


Do ewe know ?

Hugs



neil
I'm Tasty !
xxxxxxxxxxx

Some of the flavours don't even taste anything like what they're supposed to be. I've never been reminded of chicken whilst eating chicken flavoured chips. Nor beef while eating beef flavoured things. And BBQ flavour? If you grind up a BBQ plate pretty sure you just end up with a whole of steel dust, dunno why you would want to flavour chips like that.

I think, in practice, they use highly paid people to mix all sorts of 'flavours' ('blending', I think they call it) until they get a result which reminds them of what they're after. If the beagles which they test it on don't die, they wrap it up and call it 'antelope' flavour or whatever.
It's not unlike colour TV, where they mix primary colours to get the one they want.
Tea, French Wine (yummy) and cheap Whisky (yuk) are all done this way. That's the only way to get consistent tastes on successive years.

No squirrels were harmed in the making of this product: they synthesize essence of squirrel.

If the above bag of Walkers crisps were made using the aforementioned rodent,
 would the bag have to carry the warning "may contain nuts" ?  :)
