People Want Walkers' BBQ Rib Flavour Crisps To Be Brought Back

People Want Walkers' BBQ Rib Flavour Crisps To Be Brought Back

People on the Internet are never satisfied. Not content with leading a charge to get prawn cocktail flavoured Wotsits brought back to corner shop shelves, now the online community wants BBQ rib flavour Walkers' crisps to return.

The much-missed prawn cocktail Wotsits were a definite hit in their time, and you'd have to imagine a surefire success should they return - could the same be true of Walkers' BBQ rib?

As ever, Twitter looks like an accurate barometer of the strength of some people's feelings, and if you weren't already hungry... well, perhaps you should be prepared for sudden urges to head to the corner shop.

"Please bring back the good crisps like prawn cocktail wotsits & bbq rib walkers," wrote one Twitter user.

Another added: "Could right go a mars delight man, bring them back along with the prawn cocktail wotsits && bbq rib walkers "

So prawn cocktail Wotsits, BBQ rib Walkers and Mars Delight - ok, that last one might be crossing the food groups, but it shows that snack nostalgia is rife and certainly not constrained to the world of crisps.

"On the verge of crying thinking of all the unreal crisp that don't exist anymore," added another Tweeter, and you can see where this is going. "Salt n vinegar quavers, prawn cocktail quavers, BBQ rib walkers, prawn cocktail wotsits, ready salted chipsticks ☹️:broken_heart:"

Walkers To Bring Back Two Iconic Flavours Of Wotsits After Fans' Plea

Ready salted chipsticks? An unexpected left turn, there.

Perhaps this obsession with crisps that aren't there anymore is somehow indicative of this generation's intrinsic nostalgia - after all, Millennials and Generation Z are destined to pay more and earn less than our parents were, having been sold the idea of university only to find a job market in which everyone has qualifications, making them meaningless.

Without a future, are we destined to reminisce forever on the snacks of our youth? Maybe. To be honest, I just want some crisps at this stage.

Those days when BBQ rib Walkers, prawn cocktail Wotsits, Mars Delights or even ready salted Chipsticks were around... we thought those days would last forever.

It's not entirely unlike the sentiments experienced by East Germans when the Berlin Wall came down and their supermarkets suddenly filled with 300 types of pickles - but all they wanted were the rubbish pickles that they'd had for 40 years but couldn't get anymore.

Alternatively, maybe all these nostalgia fans should just have bought more BBQ Rib Walkers when they were actually out, because then they wouldn't have been withdrawn. Dunno, just an idea.
