    Anything potato, yes. Anything else, definitely no.

    I’ve just noticed it has Anglesey sea salt, surely this doesn’t matter, the sea just generally floats about and so I would imagine tastes the same wherever it is (unless it the Dead Sea)

    I like a square or two of dark chocolate and the Aldi own brand Moser Roth is spot on. They also do a sea salt which I agree is "not right" and also a chilli which is doubly "not right".
    Whilst we are on the flavour subject I have just come home from the local following a couple of pints from the Three Brothers Brewery which was nice, however whilst there I was asked to try a strawberry flavoured real ale from the Navigation Brewery. As soon as Jacob started pulling it the smell was putrid and the small taste I had was no better.
    Why do these people have to mess with tried and tested flavours. Its not right!

    Isn't there a bit of a myth about sea salt being healthier than normal table salt? Gram for gram it still has the same amount of sodium though.

    I think the Anglesey sea salt has a certain Je ne said quoi from Wylfa nuclear power station.

    I agree on the Moser Roth chocolate, Mrs DTR doesn’t buy it cos it’s too nice, as for the strawberry beer, I have tried a few fruit beers, some reasonable, so less reasonable but generally not the sort of thing that I would revisit, but of all of them, strawberry has always been the worst, the taste just overpowers the beer

    Some 'interesting' flavours and combinations are done well; some less so. I often wonder with some smaller breweries who tells them their sub-homebrew-quality produce is worth selling. Then again you can go back a few years later and they've worked out what they're doing and nailed it, so maybe not nixing it in the early stages was a good call!

    Most salted caramel/chocolate I've had I can't really taste much difference going on.

    heaven forfend people having different tastes! If we all only ate bovril and drank marmite it'd be a dull world!

    Marmite, now that is controversial
