I'm taking Micro and Nano Bolt's to see UP tomorrow, after successfully avoiding almost all info about it. Mini-Bolt saw it midweek and proclaimed it genius, which is high praise as we are both pretty big fans of Pixar. I'm even springing for the 3-D.

Then I might well pick up Chinese take-away on the way home.

Yum!

I remember those crisps, Ush!  They were WICKED, SKILL and other kid buzzwords of the period.

Hmmm. That period would have been the nineteen-eighties. I don't remember how long Outer Spacers persisted after their 1970s inception. But look: I found this on youtube -

Didn't Outer Spacers grow up to become the Space Raiders which are still with us today?

You couldn't beat the pickled onion flavour for a 5p bag of awesome.

I lived on these in the laste 70's/early 80's and ate so much I managed to save up for a huge set of space realted posters. Well worth the money and heart congestion.

Pickled onion monster munch are a suitable replacement these days though.

Indeed, Space Raiders are made by KP, who used to make Outer Spacers. But I am sure Outer Spacers were of a similar quality to Monster Munch, whereas Space raiders seem rather an inferior product. Incidentally, Monster Munch are made by Walkers, for anyone who wasn't wondering.
STRIKE !!!

Recently spotted a LARGE, old-style Monster Munch multipack containing the pickled oniony "goodness" I remember with fondness from childhood.  Fine fine snack.

We appear to be lazy local radio presenters, talking about sweets you used to be able to get.  "Whatever happened to Spangles?"

Most of the flavours I eat are the meat flavours but I do love a couple of bags of scampi nik naks now and again.
Who else shoves their fingers under a mates nose and says 'sniff', oh, it's just me then :-[

You know, Space Raiders are 20p now? That's an increase of 300% on how much they were when even I, one of the board youth, was a nipper.

And don't get me started on Nik Naks. First they replaced the brilliant Cream 'n' Cheesy with the adequate Scampi 'n' Lemon, and now they've gone and replaced that with the crappy Pickle 'n' Onion. Bastards.
Nobody warned me I would be so awesome.

Oh, I'm not having this Wilkinson.  Pickle 'n' Onion is a fine flavour, although I will concede that I like to have the choice.

For the real Nik Nak connoisseur, eating a bag of Rib 'n' Saucy is like being french kissed by God!
