“Let's try them, now there's a taste to savour, Thomas and the crane driver have invented a new flavour!”
―Sodor Supersnacks worker

Crane Crunch! is a rhyming magazine story.


Thomas is collecting a load for a company named Sodor Supersnacks, but the guard loads the wrong sacks into Thomas' trucks. Next, the crane driver drops a sack of curry powder into the crisp container. They all decide to taste the crisps, and Thomas and the crane driver have invented a new flavour, which they name "Thomas' Tingles".




  • Thomas is missing the yellow lining around one of his cab windows.
  • A large sign appears outside Sodor Supersnacks in the last illustration and the writing above the warehouse door disappears.
