      A good quality delicious tasting crisp

      For the purposes of this review i am focusing on Thai sweet chilli flavour (i have not yet tried the other flavours in this walkers range). Its not that often i buy these crisps, for one reason only... i think they are overpriced. However, recently they seem to be on special offer quite freqently, particularly at Tesco's. I have been stocking up a little bit on these because i like them and my children like them. At the moment, they are only a £1.00 for a 150g bag; most other flavours seem to be on offer too. I think the ususal price is around £1.80. The crisps come in an elegant foil type bag making sure they retain their freshness. This flavours packaging is Black with a pictures of 2 red chilli's on them. As Walkers state on the back of the packet; they are 'moreish' . You cannot resist eating them and they do not last long in my home. In fact, i sometimes have to ration them when it comes to my son because he will eat half the pack in one go and by the end of the day, the whole bag would be gone! They are quite crunchy, and full of flavours. The sweetness of them goes really well with the spiciness and the herbs and they really are a very similar taste to a Thai sweet chilli type sauce. *Ingredients* Potatoes, Sunflower oil, Rapseed oil, Thai sweet chilli seasoning, Salt, Firming agent (calcium chloride) Thai sweet chilli seasoning contains; Sugar, Fructose, flavouring, Dried Buttermilk, Dried tomato, Dried onion, Hydrolysed soya protein, Dried garlic, Dried soy sauce (made with wheat), Herbs, Basil extract, Dried green & red peppers, Red pepper oil, chilli powder, Colour (Paprika extract) *Allergy Advice* Contains Milk, Wheat, Gluten, Soya and made in a factory that also handles Barley, Celery and mustard. *Calories* A 30g serving contains 151 kcals. These crisps are absolutley delicious, so go and grab a bag now whilst they are still on offer! 5 dooyoo stars from me.

        Favourite flavour of crisps, go and try them!

        I had heard of these 'Walkers Sensations' but had never actually bothered to go out and buy some, as they had always seemed far to expensive. The past is no longer! I finally tried these crisps and instantly fell in love with the subtle spice and crunch. Walkers is obviously a very well known crisp brand, but when Sensations were first advertised the strange flavours didn't wow me, I regret my lack of interest as these Thai Sweet Chilli crisps are my new favourites! Sensations are also available in these other flavours; Mexican Fiery Sweet Chipotle Smoked Monterrey Chilli with Goat's Cheese Thai Sweet Chilli Vintage Cheddar & Onion Chutney Caramelised Onion & Balsamic Vinegar Roast Chicken & Thyme Southern Style Barbecue Although these flavours do not appeal to me, they may do in the future! It seems now every time I enter a shop I am automatically searching out these crisps, I guess that's what a perfect blend of flavours will do too you! The basic flavours are chilli, onion and herbs with some soy sauce thrown in, how such simple flavourings can produce such a great tasting treat I'll never know! Being as in love with these crisps as I am, you have to choose the 150g bags, which altogether contain about 750 calories, which is evidently a great amount! So your weight may grow and grow if these crisps grab you like they did me! Unfortunately there are a few other down sides to Walkers Sensations, they are awfully pricey if you cannot find them on a good deal, the 40g packets are usually bought at around 75p, which for a small packet is insane! Especially as I had great luck in getting a 150g bag for just 79p today! Although usually the price of a 150g bag is around £2. Brilliant flavours, huge, chunky crisps and a great treat! You won't regret this purchase! The slogan seems to be 'great for sharing' I think not!

        Crips with a difference!

        When I was in school, I used to have these crips all the time, although I never really bought them once I'd left school. Although I do remember, thinking that they had 'disappeared' as I couldn't never find their famous 'white packet with chillies on the front' in the supermarket. However, a couple of weeks ago, I came across a similar 'black packet with chillies'. When you open the bag you are greeted with a lovely sweet and herby smell. To look at, the crips look like normal Walkers crips; same shape, size etc. Although they have 'little red' herbs on them. They are very attractive to look at. ~ * So what about the taste ? * ~ When I first took a bite, I was greeted with a pleasant sweet taste, not to hot at all - these are ok I thought, not too hot! So I grabbed another handfull; it was after a couple of seconds, that I was greeted with a very hot chilli taste! Luckily I was eating mine with a sandwich, as it kind of took the 'heat' away a little bit. Although, I will warn you, that whilst they do start off quite sweet, they do get quite hot. I too also got hot when I was eating these! I love these crips, as they are so tasty! I find them to be really addictive; I can't stop eating them. The crips are said to be 'posher' than normal Walker's crips; I think that they have more flavour...a more interesting flavour which greets you with different tastes; you have the sweet taste which starts off, then the hot chilli taste, and then you are left with a hot herby taste, which means that they are quite different compared to the 'samey' taste of cheese and onion or salt and vinegar. I wouldn't say that these are the kind of crisps which you would stick in your lunchbox every day as they do seem to be more of a 'treat' kind of style of crips. Each 40g serving will provide you with 194 calories which I don't think is that bad for a treat. If you are going to eat a couple of packets a day, ever day then they are obviously not going to do your waistline any good. There is also 2.4g of protein and 0.8g of saturated fat per packer. Whilst it doesn't say this on the pack but theory has it that hot foods such as chilli increase your metabolism so that you end up burning more calories; so they can't be that bad can they?! (hehe!) Whilst I love these crisps I do think that they are quite expensive at around £1 per packet - they are worth every penny though! If you like crisps with a difference and don't mind a bit of 'hot chilli', then you will love these! Thanks for reading! July 2011 xd-o-n-z-x (also posted under xdonzx on ciao)

          Displaced Beef Monster Munch to take the throne as the new King of Crisps

          Yes, then can. But it's a double edged sword. These crisps have the power to take over your mind in ways I wouldn't have previously believed possible. Once you've dabbled with these fiery little slices of joy once, there is no turning back. You never know quite what might trigger a reaction, although walking down the crisp aisle of any major supermarket is the more obvious cause, but once they're in your head you'll need them. And when I say 'need' I'm not talking about need in the sense of needing to put your feet up after a hard day at work, or needing to something to eat at lunch time. I'm talking 'need' in the context of a smoker with a 60 a day habit who gets locked inside his house for 5 hours straight with no cigarettes. I'm talking proper serious addiction. Make no mistake, these crisps are a dangerous distraction; a diet-killer. They should come with a health warning. But, they are deeee-licious. Okay, enough with the drama, but seriously, I've tried just about every flavour in the Walkers Sensations range, and just about every variation on the 'sweet chilli' theme from competing brands like Kettle Chips, Phileas Fogg and Red Sky. Nothing comes close. These things will set your tongue on fire with flavour; quite literally if you eat too many in quick succession, albeit after your 50th bag you start to build a tolerance. Not only does the flavour nail both 'sweet' and 'chilli' perfectly, but the crisps themselves have a glorious texture and crunch - more weighty than a standard Walkers crisp, with a feeling of quality, but not with the overly thick (and ultimately dryer) texture of some of its competitors. They also smell amazing - don't miss the opportunity to catch the vapours escaping as you open the bag! On top of this, you really would be forgiven for thinking there genuinely is some kind of addictive additive, as my wife and I both spiral into the kind of feeding frenzy you'd think should be reserved for the African plains. A 150g bag is quite literally devoured in minutes, after which we exchange knowingly guilty looks, under the pretence that we now feel quite sick and couldn't possibly eat any more; the reality being we could easily have polished off a 500g bag. If only you could get them that big. If you've never tried these, then you owe it to yourself to give them a go. You won't ever look back I promise. It's always worth cruising the supermarket strip for the best deals, as a 150g bag can set you back as much as £1.80, or as little as 75 pence, so shop wisely. There is almost always a deal somewhere on the Sensations range, normally a 2 for 1 or 3 for 2. The packs are now black rather than the old style white ones shown in the product image above, and to be honest black is a better colour as these crisps most definitely reside on the dark side. Wicked without a doubt and absolutely to die for. I rate these higher than Beef Monster Munch and, given I've been addicted to those little beauties since childhood, that's saying something. These crisps are the future. Go get some.

            Definitely recommend these

            Normally I tend to stick to very plain foods and flavours, surprisingly though, I am completely addicted to these Thai sweet chilli crisps! The thought of Walkers new crisp flavour put me off abit to be honest, because it was something new to me and I'm a sucker for sticking to what I know , I'd never been keen on anything spicy, however I was in a very bored mood and decided to pass the time by nibbling and these crisps were all that was in the house that looked slightly appetizing. I was shocked when I first ate them at just how nice they were, I have to keep telling my partner to stop buying them in now, because they never stay unopened for long, as soon as I see them, they're mine! (Not too good when I'm trying to lose some weight!) Also, being vegetarian, I have found before that some crisps aren't suitable, but these are completely fine for veggies. These crisps will leave you with a tingly tongue, but if like me you can't handle spicy flavours too well, after a few crisps that flavour might build up and leave your mouth feeling very hot, I have not tried them with a dip yet though to see if this helps, I just tend to have a drink right next to me whenever I eat them. The only down side of these crisps is that they can be slightly expensive but obviously the price varies between stores.

            Yummy for your tummy!

            Walkers Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations are possibly my favourite ever crisps. I adore spicy food and these crisps have a really good combination of spicy - and they can be very spicy indeed, and a hint of sweetness. Great on their own or with a glass of wine or beer and even more so with a nice cool creamy dip to take away the heat. I try not to buy the big bag that costs about £1.30, as I am rather greedy and will polish off a whole pack in no time and will avoid sharing if i can get away with it! I've not tried any of the other sensations flavours but if they are anywhere near as nice as the sweet chilli, they will be excellent. They are extemely crunchy and fresh tasting with a perfest anount of seasoning to give a lovely spicy kick. Highly recommended if you like a "posh" snack.

            Yummy!

            Walkers Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli crisps come in a black package which is very elegant and the S shaped logo makes it really outstanding on the shelves. Walkers launched the Sensations range to the market in 2002 and since then they are developing the range. Now the old white package is changed to black and all the packages have similar design. The motifs and the colour of the S logo are different but the Sensations range looks very unique and trendy. The Thai Sweet Chilli's logo is decorated with chilli peppers (surprise-surprise). The package contains loads of nutritional information but it is far too tempting to read it through before I taste them. The crisps have very inviting and appetizing scent of freshly prepared potato chips. The sweet chilli makes it exotic. The crisps are golden and there are little spice traces on them. The crisps are crunchy and taste very nice. The taste of the potato and the taste of the sweet chilli make such a good mix. It is a popular flavour. The chilli and herbs make this crisp especial. It is a bit hot but even those can eat it who don't really fancy hot tastes (like me). After a few crisps the hot taste adds up and it is a bit uncomfortable for me but some beer or using sour cream dip reduces this hotness. I tasted loads of crisps and Walkers Sensations range belongs to my favourite ones. I especially love this sweet chilli flavour and when we have a grill party I stock up a few of them. I know that all crisps are energy bombs and they are not healthy at all but they taste so good that it is hard to resist. I found that it is easier not buying them when we don't have guests then resisting to the stocked up crisps. Where to buy them? They are available in most of the supermarkets. Occasionally you will see that the shops stocks run low because this is a very popular range and flavour. The pack contains 160 g crisps and it costs about 1.69 pounds per pack but they are often on offer in supermarkets. The ingredients are: Potatoes, Sunflower Oil (26%), Thai Sweet Chilli Seasoning, Salt, Firming Agent (Calcium Chloride), Thai Sweet Chilli Seasoning contains: Sugar, Fructose, Flavouring, Dried Buttermilk, Dried Tomato, Dried Onion, Hydrolysed Soya Protein, Dried Garlic, Dried Soy Sauce (made with Wheat), Herbs, Basil Extract, Dried Green & Red Peppers, Red Pepper Oil, Chilli Powder, Colour (Paprika Extract). As you can see there are loads of natural ingredients used to flavour these crisps. The sweet chilli crisps don't contain artificial sweeteners, artificial flavour enhancers, preservatives and colours. They are suitable for vegetarians. The energy content of these crisps is as high as chocolate's energy content: 485 kcal/100 g. Walkers Sensation Thai Sweet Chilli crisps are made of Lady Rosetta and Saturna potatoes and they are cut thicker for the crunchier crisps. The potato crisps are infused with a mixture of different paprika and herbs which make you feel a spicy tingling on your tongue first then you feel the sweetness of the crisps and finally the herbs and the potato. These crisps won't let you down if you share them with friends and fit the beer very well. I think during the World Cap it will be difficult to grab them...

              Walkers you diabolic...you've done it again.

              Sensations are a "posher" caliber of crisp from walkers, unfortunately this is code for use the same expense to produce said crisp but use classic black and white colours tomake the packet look posher, then charge more than usual for what is ostencibally the same crisps we've been eating for years, walkers are a little bit rip off merchanty in my view (look at how few crisps you get per packet). However with Walkers meany pants nature pushed aside it's time to give these crisps their day in court. I am a huge chili head and as such I get a bit disappointed when products are dulled down heatwise to appeal to a wider demographic, unfortunately this is the case here, the crisps are mild in heat but actually big on flavour. A pleasing scent is released when opening the bag, oniony, garlicky with a pleasing sweetness. I must eat my words and say that these crisps are a little posher than normal, the have a much deeper and more complex flavour, excellently balanced with a mild heat and a lovely onion garlic medley. The bag I had was rather on the large side but thankfully I am a disgusting glutton (despite being slightly on the slender side for a bloke) so had no worries polishing off the whole bag. The full flavour mixed with the extreme crunchiness are good points while a lack of chili heat is something I wish would be addressed. In summary perhaps I was a little hasty in saying walkers are trying to con us all, although I still reckon the increase in price over regular crisps is disproportionate to the added cost of ingredients or extra man hours required in making them. This is a deliciously full flavoured crisp and has a very pleasant aroma, they are crispy and the bags are large, what more could you ask of a crisp

              A little of what you fancy.......

              Originally launched in 2002, in the white packets shown above, Walkers Sensations crisps became a firm favourite and there are now seven different flavours available. In the flashy new black packet these crisps stand out from the crowd. This particular flavour is the Thai Sweet Chilli flavour, which has the red writing and design of a red dragon intermingled with chilli peppers on the black background. The larger 160g packs generally cost around £1.75, though can often be seen on offer (locally I can find them for a pound each at the moment). Unfortunately for me, the vending machine in my office stocks the crisps at 60p for the smaller 40g size and they are ideal for that mid afternoon need for food. (A slight digression, but 12 bob for a packet of crisps - has the world gone mad! I remember when a tanner for a pack was considered outrageous. I realise that those people who are aged under 40 or so will not have a clue what that is about, but ask your parents or grandparents! Sorry, back to the review....) They do state that they are made with real ingredients (as opposed to what? Virtual Ingredients?), including British Potatoes, and no artificial flavourings or preservatives are used. Without listing the ingredients or calories per packet, I can let you know a little secret - eating these will not promote a healthy lifestyle or help with any diet plan that I know of. I figure that once in a while a little treat won't hurt, will it? I try to justify it to myself by restricting myself to only having a pack on some of the days that I go to the gym in the evening, so that I feel less guilty about them. Back to the crisps..... I find that Walkers crisps are always that - crisp. They are a little thicker cut than some other brands, which does give them extra crunch (and sometimes very loud in a quiet office). You can also see green and red flecks of the spices on the crisps These are probably my favourite flavour of crisp. I love spicy food, but not if it is too hot. These are just right, the crisps have a gentle, almost sweet taste initially, but then the chilli takes over and has quite a kick to it, but not too much. Be warned, you do HAVE to lick your fingers afterwards! By the end of the packet, I do find that a glass of cold water is the perfect accompaniment and my mouth has a lovely tingly feeling for some time after I have finished. Highly recommended if you like crisps and a bit of spice. (Do not confuse these with the Chilli and Chocolate flavour that Walkers tried a little while ago - yeugh!)

                give em a try....

                For the last few years or so, I have got used to munching away on the classic salt and vinegar, or cheese and onion walkers. I thought they would never change, and life would continue as per normal. Suddenly Walkers employed the football celebrity Gary Linekar, and since they haven't looked back. These particular crisps, excuse me for this one, ...sensational. I think they are the best walkers crisps around, and if not amongst my favourites of all. They start with a spicy tingling on your tongue, which is almost layered with sultry undertones of lovely herbs and spices, and then climaxes in an intense flavour. It's a fantastic sensation from a simple crisp. They set you back around £1.20 a large pack. Now if you think about it, that's rather expensive. Fine, you can buy 10 packs of small walkers for the same price.... but it's definitely worth it for the far better quality crisps. The advertising campaigns for walkers now days are also brilliant, and all in all, it's about finding a crisp brand that you firstly like the taste of, and secondly trust. I have been loyal to walkers for many years, and with crisps such as these on the shelves, I'm not considering changing.

                  Lovely

                  I am not a huge lover of crisps in general and I don't eat Walkers that often. I also have a very mnimal tolerance of spice so these wouldn't normally be the sort of thing that I would like. However, they were floating round the office one day and someone handed me some and seeing as they were in my hand I eat them. Sensations have been around for about three or four years now I think, and I remember there was quite a hype when they were introduced as the idea of flavours that weren't ready salted or cheesen and onion and so on were a bit shocking. They used to come in white packaging as seen in the pictures above but they redeveloped the packaging about 15 months ago and I really much prefer it in its current state and it sets itself apart from 'regular ciisps' and looks good on the supermarket shelf. They are now black with what looks like a chilli flying through the sky leaving a red trail behind which makes the shape of an 's' on the front. Looks quite oriental in my eyes. These can be bought in individual packets costing about 50p, or you can buy them in share bags which are 160g. Normally these share bags are £1.69 at Sainsbury's but are £1 right now along with the other flavours. I am not sure if they come in multipacks or not. The crisps seem much more solid than I am used to with theirs, I remember sometimes the crisps even being see-through but these are more yellow and thick witha good crunch. The crisps are golden yellow with tiny flecks of red and green so they are more colourful than normal. In terms of taste they manage to get a fantastic balance between the sweet and the kick of the chilli and you can taste both kick in at the same time. If the sweetness of the herbs was not there, I think these crisps would be overwhelming. They do make you very thirst though so watch out...

                  My favourite crisp quite easily

                  After eating so many crisps and often comparing my crisps in my reviews to Walkers Sensations I was shocked to find I hadn't reviewed these! The crisps now come in a bag that differs from that of the picture above and have done for a while now. They come in a black bag and the design is now more sophisticated. On the back of the bag it has the claim "Black is the new white! Same great flavour, great new look!" One of the reasons I like these crisps is that they are made with real ingredients unlike so many other brands that use so many flavourings. The crisps are meant to be a "posh crisp." Now I am not quite sure what this refers to, you can dress it up anyway you like but I don't believe there is such a thing. Now there is a quality crisp, or an expensive crisp, or a big crisp, etc., but posh?! I tend to buy these crisps in the 160g sharing size, but you can also buy a standard 35g size and a 105g size. The problem with buying these in larger sizes is that they are very "moreish" and you just can't seem to stop eating indulging in them! This becomes even more worrying when the bag states that they have 170 calories per 35g serving which will work out at around 777 calories per 160g bag! Luckily for me I don't tend to count my calories, but for others this could be a problem. If you are wondering, then 777 calories equates to a little over 30% of an adult males recommended daily allowance. The crisps seem a very high quality compared to original walkers crisps. They are thicker and therefore have more of a crunch to them. On this particular crisp you can see small dots of herbs and spices, these are red and green in colour. I like to eat these when I am watching a film in the evening at home. I find that they are very good for sharing and are ideal at parties, however you will notice that they always seem to be the first crisp to run out, not only at parties but also at your local supermarket. I often find that the shelves in Tesco have all the other varieties on sale but the Thai Sweet Chilli version has sold out, this seems to be when I go to Tesco on a friday evening mainly. The crisps did used to seem expensive to me, but as I have been trying lots of different varieties of crisp recently I have found that it is quite inline with other large sharing packs and you will find that it is frequently on offer, which is good for me as I frequently buy them! I like that the flavour is quite strong, I have found that a large amount of the crisps on sale these days don't seem to have a strong enough flavour. If you don't eat any hot food at all this will leave a slight tingle in your mouth but nothing too bad. I eat hot food quite regularly though so I don't notice this as much but do really enjoy the general flavour of the crisp. I have never tried any other flavours in the range but currently the following are on sale: Vintage Cheddar and Onion Chutney Roasted Chicken and Thyme Balsamic Vinegar and Caramelised Onion Souther Style Barbeque Buffalo Mozzarella and Herbs Oriental Red Curry They also do a Lime and Coriander Chutney Poppadoms pack and a Peking Spare Ribs Oriental Crackers pack. All the flavours can be bought at all major supermarkets and many newsagents across the country. If you have never tried them then why not buy a small 35g pack first and see how you get on, i'm quite confident that a large amount of you will love these!

                    even my missus eats them :-O

                    When it comes to snacks, crisps (or potato chips) are amongst the very best, not particularly healthy but yet wonderful with a wide ranging variety of flavours and quality. One of the best modern brands is the premium Walkers brand "Sensations" coming in either small packs or bigger family sized bags of 160g. Of the many flavours one of the best ones is the Thai Sweet Chilli flavour which has a generally black bag design with red images of a dragon and chilli's that looks quite attractive but not the most out standing design in history. when opened the bag releases a very light smell that you actually struggle to pick up, a little disconcerting maybe but when you get to the actual crisps you realise that they taste a long stronger than they smell. When the crisps are taken out of the packet they have a mainly golden colour with a dry looking texture to it and peppered with little green specks. Although not as visually outstanding as something like McCoys or as "pure" looking at Pringles they do seem more "crisp" shaped, random looking with no 2 being identical, a wide variety of shapes and sizes. When it comes to eating them each single crisp is full of flavour, teasing the taste buds with spicy flavours that seem to come entirely from the specks. However, as with all crisps, they manage to taste even better by the handful. Eaten by the handful the flavour becomes more intense, what had teased the tongue because something that tingles the entire mouth pleasuring your lips, gums, tongue and the top of your mouth. Leaving your mouth a pulsating orgy of pleasure, incredibly delightful even if it does leave your mouth a little bit "hot". Nutritional Information (per 100g) 2035 KJ Energy 485 Calories 6g Protein 57g Carbohydrate (of which 3.6g are from Sugars) 26g Fat (of which 2g are Saturated) 4.2g Fibre 0.16g Sodium (1.55g as Salt equivalent) Contains: Soya, wheat, peppers and chilli Though the smaller packs can seem a little heavy on the pricing it's hard to argue with the £1.50 (around $2) price tag for the bigger bags. The crisps are delightful even if they do leave your mouth mouth feeling funny and annoyingly they can often leave crumbs in between your teeth and around the crumbs. The pay off is a delightfully fulfilling snack that can fill an empty stomach with no problems. Though the crisps are rather heavy on both Carbs and fat and may not be ideal for all, snacks aren't "supposed" to be healthy, are they? Just a note the flavour might be a bit "hot" for some so they aren't suitable for all.

                      .

                      On the back of me saying that I like simple tasting Crisps, these are probably my favourite full of flavour Crisps. Sold in40g bags, 150g bag, or i've seen larger bag around Christmas Time, this brand of Crisps have been out for a few years now. They are made by Walkers and were originally billed as a posher type of Crisps. The 40g bags cost about 50p and the 150g bags are around £1.50 or can sometimes be on offer 2 for £2. The bag looks alright. It is black, shiny and just looks glossy and expensive. There is a splash of red on the bag as well. The Crisps are very crunchy and crispy and you can see the flavouring on the Crisps. The taste is a little spicy, but not too much and there is a slight heat to these Crisps. Haven't seen bad bits through these Crisps, so they look good quality. Also they don't seem greasy or oily either. This flavour may not be to everyones taste, but i'm sure 1 of the many Sensations flavours would be suitable for everyone.

                      not met anyone who hasn't tried these, LETS BRING SENSATION TO THE NATION!

                      Right from the launch date back in 2006 these have and always will be my favourite crisps. They are just packed full of flavour and are so addictive. The packaging is a solid black colour with red chillies in a funky artwork design, looks great but why was the old style bad? Since 2009 Walkers changed their campaign for their new flavours and since changed from white to black packaging for Thai sweet chilli. The taste is wonderful, it's not over powering with spice or too hot, it's enough that makes your tongue tingle afterwards but you must have more. The price ranges from 40p-55p in super markets or local shops for the individual packets of 40g but why settle for the small packs when you can have the big snack packs. They do have 194 calories which when looking at it is quite a lot, especially when you can't just have the one packet so if you're still sticking to your new year's resolution and are dieting then make sure you leave room for a pack of these beauties. ~~Break down of daily intake~~ 194 calories - 10% 1.4g suger - 2% 10.4g fat - 15% 0.8g saturates - 4% 0.6g salt - 10% To summerise, if I was stuck on a desert island then a pack of Walkers sweet chilli crisps would be in my top 10 food items. I give this a 9/10
