well it depends what your basing your chicken flavour on.
your thinking of the taste of chicken meat whereas the flavour they use is based on a reduced chicken stock or boullion.that is what they taste like ;)

It could be because they haven't been anywhere near anything resembling a chicken in their lives. It's all done with petroleum based additives. (n)

I was thinking this just yesterday when I tried some Nobby's balti chicken crsisps which tasted like neither balti nor chicken :( The only crisps that do taste like what they're meant to are the simple ones like salt and vinegar or cheese and onion.
