We’ve started a petition to bring back prawn cocktail Wotsits


It was announced today that Walkers are set to reintroduce two new classic flavours.

The flavours announced were the legendary Sizzling Steak and Flamin' Hot, but there was a massive uproar when we wrote about them.

To put it bluntly, only 1 in 10 people were actually arsed about the new flavours, with around 9 in 10 hurling abuse at Walkers for not bringing back their much-loved Prawn Cocktail bag.


It goes without saying Sizzling Steak and Flamin' Hot are two of the most popular experimental flavours from the past, but if those two flavours are Premier League standard, then Prawn Cocktail are Champion's League winners.

When they make their return, Sizzling Steak and Flamin' Hot will be available in single serve bags, grab bags, multi-packs and sharing bags across the country from 12th January – and because of the date, it's not likely that any new flavours are going to be announced.

However, given the audience response to our Facebook post earlier today, we've decided to do something about it.

Wotsits are usually only available in the UK in the "Really Cheesy" flavour.

However, the Prawn Cocktail flavour was so popular when it was on shelves back in the day that even their cheesy arch nemesis, Quavers, introduced their own Prawn flavoured effort – which actually went down quite well.

But, we're yet to see a passion for a particular crisp that matches Wotsits' pink puffs, and as you can see above and below, this was pretty evident on our Facebook page today.

Therefore, we've created a petition to try and get the attention of Walkers in the hope that we can bring these mythical crisps back from the dead.

So if you're a passionate prawn flavoured crisp lover, you can find it here, and join the movement.
