First of all apologies for the link to the Sun.

My pub landlady, friend and fellow Black Horse Rider made it into the papers. If you scroll about 3/4 of the way down that is Sarah looking a bit bookish.

I like pickled onion flavour monster munch but Dunckle doesn't, he won't kiss me if I have eaten some.
Someone I know had to ban his children from eating them in the back of the car as the smell made him gag.

I am a fiend for pickled onions, as it happens. :)

I assume they are Aldi's versions of monster munch.

Though I've never had either, so I'm no authority.
Frankly I'm shocked, shocked and very very disappointed. I'm not sure how to interact with someone that hasn't had (and by the way if you don't love them you need to have a word with yourself) pickled onion Monster Munch :(

I knew someone would take offence. They are just not a food you generally start eating as an adult, and they don't often serve them in pubs or cocktail parties 🍹 🎉. I've made a bit of an effort not to develop new comfort/junk foods. Not 100% successful, as I quickly discovered that Tunnock Tea Cakes are basically Chocolate Royals, Penguins are close enough to Tim Tams and I've developed a real taste for Sensations Sweet Chilli crisps. Never touch a Wagon Wheel, those monstrosities have no jam!

I'm still worried about having to kiss @Dunckel when he's got a pickled onion in his mouth..........or have I misunderstood?

Purely in the interests of research, you understand.

"eat a few" :-[ I ate them all. There are only about eight claws in each packet though.

I've never given that any thought. Are they monsters with some level of paw/claw symmetry or are they more of a hand/feet type of monster claw. I'm not sure how I'd feel about it if we were not using as much of the monster as we can and were discarding the hands (or feet) for not fitting a consumer monster based snack ideal.

When you say ate them all, are you talking about all the individual claws or all the packs in a multi pack?
