Walkers Releases New Crisp Range Inspired By Popular Chains Like Nando’s And PizzaExpress
Walkers has introduced a brand new range of crisps that have all been inspired by the nation’s favourite high street restaurant chains which include Nando’s.
The Taste Icons range takes the flavours you know and love from some the UK’s most popular restaurants, meaning you can still get your fix of your favourite dishes while the country is on lockdown. Restaurants were forced to closed earlier this month to help slow the spread of coronavirus, and while it may be some time yet before we’re able to head out for a pizza or a curry, at least we’ve now got the next-best thing.
“We’ve partnered with five restaurants in the UK to transform their favourite dishes into Walkers crisps,” the Walkers website says.
Along with Nando’s Peri-Peri Chicken flavour, the range also features nods to PizzaExpress’ American Hot Pizza and Margherita Pizza.
As well as those, there’s crisps inspired by Yo! Sushi’s Katsu Curry, Las Iguanas’ Chilli Con Carne and Gourmet Burger Kitchen’s Classic Cheseburger.
Five-bag multipacks of the new range were spotted for 99p by shopper @emily_fairhurstfood in Home Bargains.
She shared her find with food platform Kev’s Snack Reviews – where they’ve gone down well with social media users.
One commented: “What! Now?? Are these an essential trip out??? Argh.”
Another said: “Need all of them.”
A third wrote: “OMG neeeeed.”
We’ve contacted Walkers to see whether or not the new crisps will be available in other stores as well as Home Bargains, so we’ll keep you posted.
The Walkers website also states that the new range ties in with a promotion offering customers two-for-one meals at various restaurants. Obviously no one can use these right now, so the time limit has been extended to later this year.
The website explains: “Additionally we were offering a free 2-for-1 restaurant meal voucher in every pack, clearly these vouchers cannot be used at the present time. As such, we’ve extended the voucher redemption period until 3 December 2020 inclusive.”
