      Talking about crisps, does anyone remember the Walkers Crisps promotion circa 1993 where some packs had a blue sachet which often contained an voucher for a few packet of crisps (or money off a six pack of crisps)?

      The adverts (which were some of the first that Gary Lineker did) had showed Lineker finding a blue sachet with a £20 note inside, although I very much doubt that actual banknotes were contained inside them. Of course, they were very similar to the salt sachets that Smiths Salt 'n' Shake Crisps had a few years before.
      I had a couple of these vouchers. Generally they were for a free packet of crisps. I don't think they were allowed to put any cash (notes) in them. I may be wrong. One person who I then worked with I think had a voucher for a multiple pack.
      Who cared about rules when you were young?

        They were either for a free packet of crisps or money (50p or something - the equivalent value to one packet) off a eight pack of Walkers Crisps - done very similar to Wonka's Golden Tickets or the plastic toys found inside the boxes of Kellogg's Corn Flakes.

        It's odd because I am sure that in one of the adverts, Lineker had opened of the sachets and found a £20 note inside them, unless it was pretend play Monopoly money if you know what I mean.
        Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

          I remember these well, I won quite a few free bags but in one little blue sachet there was a cheque for £1.00 and the signature on the cheque was a (printed) signature by Gary Lineker. As it was only for a quid I never cashed it in and if I remember rightly it is hidden in my parents house inside a display china teaset they had. I wonder if it's still there?

                      Too exotic for me - they should have done that for their Do Us a Flavour campaign that they had.

                        I just hope that Political Correctness was not the reason why they are not available anymore.

                            Guess ‘grease’ or ‘fat’ is the main flavouring in all crisps !?!

                              I last saw Puffs in my local Farmfoods store and that was years ago, they were lovely, very brittle too which would always result in crumbs everywhere.

                                I like pickled onion Space Raiders, full on flavour plus they are baked not fried.
