  • Re: Crisps

    I was wondering how many flavours from that "Do us a Flavour" competition from around ten years ago are still being made for Walkers Crisps? Someone at the time obviously suggested Hedgehog flavour (a favourite with university students, no doubt).

        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.

            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.
