McCain's Potato Smiles Are Back In Australia But They're Now Called EmotiBites

McCain's Potato Smiles Are Back In Australia But They're Now Called EmotiBites

Potato smileys were all the rage when you were a kid. Some weren't too keen on putting potato in their gob because they were fussy eaters, but something about the smiles made them so inviting to eat.

However, a generation of kids have grown up without these little bundles of joy after McCain ceased production.

People have hounded the company to revamp the product and make everyone happy again. After years of campaigning and thousands of signatures, McCain has listened.

The company has brought the product back, however it has capitalised on everyone's obsession with emojis and released them as EmotiBites. Weird name, but we'll probably get used to them in no time.

McCain's Marketing manager Karen Ramsay said in a statement: "For many Australians, these are something they've looked back on fondly as part of their childhood.

"After years of build-up, it's heartening to know that they're meeting expectations. With the new shapes, Australians are not just welcoming Smiles back to their tables but also winks, flowers, hearts and thumbs ups.

"It's great to see that people of all ages are having fun with all the new shapes. In the 90s, Smiles were a classic for the pre-digital era, now they bring the same joy, but updated to reflect today's social world."

You can bake these bad boys in just 15 minutes and they'll only set you back $4 for a 750g bag at Coles.

The announcement that the Smiles aka EmotiBites were back was made on Facebook and people went absolutely wild.

One dedicated fan wrote: "Sweet lord."

Another added: "I miss these and the potato letters and numbers...does anyone remember those from childhood!?"

A third said: "Don't ever take them away again!"
