Walkers bring back prawn cocktail Wotsits after 20 years

A flavour of crisp is being brought back after 20 years following a petition from a South Cerney woman.

Yasmin Morgan has been amongst the first to taste the soon-to-be-launched Wotsits Prawn Cocktail Giants, five years after she petitioned Walkers to bring the retro flavour back to the nation’s shelves.

Since the flavour went off sale in 2002, it has become Walkers most requested flavour ever, with the brand inundated with social media messages from fans.

This came to a head in 2017 when Yasmin and a friend ranked their favourite crisps and determined prawn cocktail Wotsits were their favourite.

Yasmin then set up a change.org petition begging for their return which went viral and garnered more than 4,000 signatures.

Yasmin, who still a child the last time the crisps were sold, said: “I’ve loved Wotsits Prawn Cocktail for as long as I can remember, and when they disappeared off the shelves, I was absolutely gutted.

“Five years ago, I decided to take the matter in my own hands, with a bit of help from the British public.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I expect the petition to amass 4,000 signatures, let alone get me a first taste of the flavour before they go back on sale.

“I’m delighted Wotsits Prawn Cocktail have returned and it’s great to see the rest of the nation sharing the excitement with me!”

Josephine Taylor, senior marketing manager at Walkers added: “We know Wotsits Prawn Cocktail hold a special place in the nation’s heart and over the last twenty years the love for them has been incredible to see.

“Following the public demand and Yasmin Morgan’s petition to bring them back, we’re delighted to share with the nation that they’re officially back, only bigger, measuring in at twice the size of the original snack!”

Wotsits Prawn Cocktail Giants are now available to pre-order on Amazon and will be on sale nationwide from Monday.
