Walkers are bringing back two of its most iconic flavours in the Wotsits range.
From this weekend, the country’s crisp lovers will be able to get their hands on its Sizzling Steak – the artist formerly known as BBQ Beef – and Flamin’ Hot flavours, which haven’t graced our shelves for some time.
It comes after the snack manufacturer revealed it was inundated with requests from customers asking the firm to bring them back.
Speaking about the exciting news, Nick Day from Walkers said: “People have been reaching out to us non-stop on social media to bring back our iconic flavours, so we’re pleased to announce that Wotsits Flamin’ Hot and Sizzling Steak will soon be back in their hands, kicking off the year with a bang.
“The new range has been given a flavour makeover to what was previously known as ‘BBQ’ and ‘Flamin’ Hot’ but still maintains that classic taste fans will know and love.”
Now, while that’s all well and good, what I want to know is why aren’t they bringing back the Prawn Cocktail flavour? They were class.
And it would seem that I’m not the only one who is utterly outraged at the shocking omission from this retro revamp.
There are plenty of others out there who remember them.
The real question is what happened to prawn cocktail wotsits?

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “They’re bringing back bbq + flaming hot wotsits but not the prawn cocktail ones which were, objectively, the supreme wotsit flavour ???? you’ve played yourself. no I don’t take constructive criticism.”
A second asked: “The real question is what happened to prawn cocktail wotsits?“
While another lamented: “Sometimes everything is okay but sometimes i just miss prawn cocktail wotsits.”
Sizzling Steak and Flamin’ Hot flavours launch on Sunday 12 January.
Come on, Walkers. This is a start, but do the right thing. Bring back Prawn Cocktail.
