Commas and stuff[edit]

I'm not British, so I don't know the original flavors that came out. The article is confusing because the first sentence in the first section says

"Originally Monster Munch was made by Smiths and was first available in Roast Beef, Bacon and Pickled Onion and Salt & Vinegar flavours, each pack contained a different monster on the front of the packet."

I know Roast Beef is one flavor, is the second flavor Bacon or Bacon and Pickled Onion? or Bacon and Pickled Onion and Salt & Vinegar...though I'm sure no one would come up with such a terrible sounding flavor. I think the Oxford comma should be used here to be more specific.

So if the first 6 packs contained 2 roast beef and 2 pickled onion - what was the third flavour.

It definitely wasn't bacon

Thanks for that. I think I would've used the oxford comma if I had used the word 'and' in my question, at which point it would've been relevant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Parkypants (talkcontribs) 12:36, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Oh Monster God![edit]

I can't believe no one is talking about Monster Munch, its legendary, real nice and crunchy and is totally different....especially BIG EAT flaming hot!

I once asked the head of the monster munch factory near durham why they stopped roast beef flavour, as they were the best ones. He replied that their market research showed that no one liked the roast beef. Never mind that the sales of roast beef flavour would be so low because supermarkets insisted on selling only the pickled onion flavour. Anyway, a few years on, and roast beef is back. I assume he or his market researchers got the sack.

Are You Kidding Me?[edit]

They haven't got bigger or reverted to the original size - they've shrunk. I've eaten them since a kid, so I should know when something has changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.31.128.103 (talk) 20:12, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Shape

Just had a quick read and didn't see any mention of the shape of Monster Munch. Surely that they are shaped like monster footprints (?) is important — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.22.137.6 (talk) 11:29, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Smiths Foopd Group / Monster Munch[edit]

I worked as a 'Food Technician' for Smiths Food Group (Research And Development Department) at their complex in 111, Mortlake Road,Kew, Surrey during the period 1977/8. The department had approximately 15-20 staff members , all with varying skills. I worked with developing 'Monster Munch' formulation and die-plate design for extrusion purposes, from the birth of the product. (Incidently, the name was suggested by me as a somewhat 'ummentioned' phrase used often after the use of cannabis in that period of the 70's). My colleague worked on 'Frazzles' (Fenton) whilst another, (Prem) dealt with snacks across the range. I worked directly with a chap called 'Rob' with 'Monster Munch' who was the university graduate there. Our 'Head of Department' was a German chap who was at that time pioneering the birth and launch of 'Square Crisps.' This was a truly revolutionary product as it utlilised 'powdered' potato, rather than 'fresh' Prior to his work in the snack industry, this man had worked in Germany with 'Professor Von Braun' during the Second World War developing the jet engine in regard to rocket science. A man of many talents! I've emitted the name of this genius for obvious reason...A great unsung hero of many talents! That was many years ago, yet 'Monster Munch' thrives on to this day. I'm proud to have been involved in such a great and prolific product. Thank you for reading this.
