Samboy -Atomic Tomato Best chips ever made - why not in stores
Can't believe the spoonhead reviews here. Samboy are the best chips by far and the atomic tomato are the best chips ever made. its very annoying that coles and woolworths don't sell them....

BACK TO SMITHS CRISPS
Samboy used to be my favourite and now they’re just a tasteless bag of potatoes. No flavour and nothing like they used to be!!! People aren’t stupid!!! Use cheap arsed flavouring and trick your consumers is disgusting!!! Shame on you. Thank god for Smiths who thankfully have lifted their game and brought back the good ole packed with flavour BBQ chips!!!

BBQ Chips Have Lost All Flavour
I have eaten Samboy BBQ chips for almost 60 years and, until recently, they were my favourite chips. Unlike competitors’ products, they seldom seem to come on special but I have been prepared to pay a premium for the distinctive strong spicy flavour. Not any more! There is virtually no flavour at all, except for that of the oil they are cooked in and they are actually less flavoursome that a major competitor‘s corresponding product that I have previously avoided for any real lack of taste. Mr Samboy, please revert to the original recipe!

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?

These were my favourite chips, now they have no flavour
I used to buy these all the time because of the amount of seasoning. Got some to today at Woolworths & I was disappointed. Same with the Atomic Tomato. The expiry is June 2020 btw.

Where has the BBQ Gone? Flavour doesn’t hit you anymore!
We bought 4 packets of our old favourite Samboy bbq chips at Coles last week & not one packet tasted like we remembered... flavour definitely lacking & certainly no longer hits you
What’s happened Samboy?

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.

Every house must have these in the pantry. They are just perfect for any occasion. The more flavour the better they are. Love it even better when it's 2 for the price of one
