Anyone noticed that Oz is pritty obsessed with chicken flavoured crisps?
The other main crap flavours to choose from include Plain,Salt and Vinigar,Cheese and BBQ.

Where are the Wocester Sauce,Tomato Sauce,Prawn Cocktail and Pickled Onion flavours this side of the world??
It's a goddammnn travesty!!

I tried some in Aldi that were the same flavour but they were not as nice as the red rock deli. However, the Aldi Roquefort & Caramelised Onion are yum

Those are yum. But my personal favourite are the Smiths crinkle cut salt and vinegar ones, I can easily 'nibble' an entire bag whilst cooking, and then am too full to eat my meal! And they've been on offer recently... not any good for my theoretical 'diet' that I'm supposed to have started!!

Wow...never even tried them....Smiths in UK were always so much crapper than Walkers that I ain't bothered with Smiths here

That's pronounced chips. Maybe the exact crisps you want are back in England? Why do you expect to find them here?
By the way, we do have tomato chips, sour cream and chives chips, onion flavoured, pork, prawn chips, etc. etc. You must be looking in the wrong aisle.
