Severe cramps from Samboy Atomic Tomato Chips
Was so excited to get these.
Ate around 1/3 of the large bag and all of a sudden my stomach started gurgling and turning, I got hot flushes and ran for the bathroom. 30 minutes later my stomach is still going wild and I'm trying to concentrate on not throwing up.
All 3 of us have been poisoned, same time, same pack. Today we opened a pack of Atomic Tomato Samboy Cips exp 20/JUN/2020. They smelt and tasted fine. The kids were eating them first then I grabbed a small handful. 10 Minutes later my 3 year old had a seriously high temperature, he developed a heat rash, cramps, his eyes looked sick (glassy) he became constipated and very tired. Thank God he fell asleep because for the next 40 minutes I was literally sick (thick yellow vomit) I felt my stomach churning and burning and I have a massive headache....This started around 3pm and I still feel incredibly sick and can’t keep anything down and still have headache, considering going to the hospital. Also my 14 year old child has been feeling sick, no appetite and has fallen asleep early. I still have the chips if they can be checked and tested?
What happened to the taste of Samboy BBQ chips?
Samboy BBQ chips were my favourite chips many years ago and I happened to see them on special at my local Woolies store a couple of weeks back so I bought a packet. The chips looked the same but the flavour was definitely nothing like what I remembered. They were the strangest tasting BBQ chips I have ever had and needless to say I won't be buying another packet any time soon!
Samboy BBQ chips are the only chips I eat. They are pretty hard to find. I can only get them at Coles on a rare occasion. So when I seen Coles had a lot in this day, I bought 3 packets. When I opened them up they looked different and tasted exactly like Smiths BBQ chips. Very disappointed. I opened all the packets and they were all the same. So I went and bought Smiths BBQ chips to compare them and yes exactly the same chip. Please go back to your original recipe.

Wow finally chicken flavor back!!! I been waiting forever. Best most tasty flavorsome chips ever.
Australian. The flavor really hits you commercial was a big success in the 80s. Been Australian from beginning. Established in the 1950s in Australia. Has been acquired by another Australian company recently.
tomato? more like plain potato flavour
Umm, who left off the seasoning? My partner was all excited to introduce me to one of his childhood favourites "atomic tomato" and they tasted like plain potato chips. He seemed so disappointed. They must have been good, once upon A time. Wouldn't waste my money on them!

samboy barbecue chips
I have been buying samboy chips since I was a little gorl I am now nearly 60 this the first time I have been disappointed with my chips. I have a large packet of barbecue chips and they have not one bit of seasoning in them its like they have put plain chips in the packet, DISSAPOINTED
Still haven't much flavour
I used to love love love Samboy barbecue chips because they had so much seasoning on them and I actually had apacket a Christmas that was just perfect, the only problem was I didn't get to eat many because everyone else ate them because they were so good. I buy a packet every week to see if I can get one like that again, with lots of seasoning, but so far no luck! Please add more seasoning, there are some people still out here who don't care about how much salt and whatever else they consume, we just want flavour! Also, what happened to your chicken chips, they were really good too if they had lots of seasoning on them?
Why is samboys gone.?
I cant believe you have seen reason to delete the most popular potato chip from your line.. Your name brand has to be the hugest in australia and the bbq samboy large packet the most popular in the line along with the other flavours. .. I really dont understand this decision.
Who wants to buy a tiny pack for entertaining. ???? Not me.!!! Ill change to another brand and have to get used to other bbq flavours which arent as good..
Very very disappointed ... To say the least . My husband is beside himself as this is the only chip he will eat..
A reply would be great !!!! Why why..??
What has happened?
The Samboy BBQ chips used to have so much BBQ flavour that they were so addictive! I no longer have an addiction to them because both the flavour and texture of them have changed recently. This is so disappointing, why change such a good thing?! I will not be buying them again.
