To think you bite WITH the ridges, not against!

The person beside me is eating ridged crisps and not biting along the ridges. What madness is this?!

You're both wrong shock

Crisps should be inserted whole for the most satisfying crunch, those who nibble are just odd wink

Yabvu! There is no fun if you are not feeling the ridges as you eat!

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeG0es Fri 20-Nov-15 10:51:53

Yes, put them in whole, biting makes too many crumbs (which is a waste of crunchy deliciousness).

I bite against them - there's no point having ridged crisps otherwise, they aren't for people with dodgy teeth, the flavour gets caught in the ridges so they taste better.

You need to ask for one now and try it. Our way wins.

I think you should grab the packet from her and show her how it should be done angry depending on the flavour

How can you get it so wrong. Bite ACROSS the ridges. ACROSS

MERLYPUSSEDOFF Fri 20-Nov-15 11:28:07


(or shove them in whole)

YANBU. One ridge at a time is obviously what these crisps were invented for!

Bumpinthenight Fri 20-Nov-15 11:30:02

I think you will find you are supposed to kick along the ridges first to get maximum flavour and then eat them whole...

MaidOfStars Fri 20-Nov-15 11:30:06

Definitely with the ridges for me. Nice clean break.

Bumpinthenight Fri 20-Nov-15 11:30:19

That would be lick along the ridges!

SaucyJack Fri 20-Nov-15 11:30:35

I lick the salt off first, after which they're so soggy it doesn't matter which way you put them in.

reni2 Fri 20-Nov-15 11:30:54

Crisps are eaten whole if smaller than a palm.

Anniegetyourgun Fri 20-Nov-15 11:36:39

Well, I don't know about your mouth, but my teeth are arranged in a graceful curve barring a few gaps and wonky bits so unless it's a very small crisp some of my teeth will neatly fit along a ridge and others won't.

Aren't ridged crisps usually perfectly palate shaped?
Crunch across them

reni2 Fri 20-Nov-15 11:42:38

They go in whole, then tongue press up and teeth down- crunch.

Different if used as a shovel with dips like Taco chips and I haven't found a way to fit in papadums (sp?) yet.

<updates spreadshit>

I have disagreed with you about many things, OP, but here you are absolutely definitely and eternally NBU.

It's one of the chiefest joys of a packet of McCoys and makes it last two or three times as long as a packet of Walkers (etc) for the same calories. Diet tip right there.

As for the rest of you, I bet you eat KitKats like this too. Bastards.

TheOnlyOliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 20-Nov-15 11:54:26

See the Kit Kat is just WRONG

TobleroneBoo Fri 20-Nov-15 11:59:31

Nooo I agree with the OP! I have a huge dirty love for Flame Grilled Steak McCoys - they can only be eaten by nibbling each ridge individually, which I am sure my colleagues LOVE grin

bumbleymummy Fri 20-Nov-15 12:00:12

Baelish, you can still feel the ridges if you bite more than one at a time. (Although I quite like biting then off one at a time.... Makes them last aaaaages)

The kit-Kat is wrong! angry

bumbleymummy Fri 20-Nov-15 12:03:27

Kit-Kats MUST be nibbled around the edges of each individual finger before being eaten lengthways.

I haven't had one in years though. Bloody Nestle making me miss out on kit-kats!

lurkingabit Fri 20-Nov-15 12:12:11

OMG WHO who who in their right mind eats a KitKat like that??
So very wrong

mmgirish Fri 20-Nov-15 12:17:59

That kit Kat photo made me shudder. WHO would do that? However, YABU OP, you bite against the ridge...
