The cheesy favourite Quavers are today back on sale in two former flavours after crisp fans demanded them back.
Walkers, which makes its crisps in Leicester, is now selling prawn cocktail and salt and vinegar versions of the snack.
Both flavours have been absent from shop shelves for nearly 10 years but they are back after a Twitter poll asked Quaver fans which of the flavours they wanted to taste once again.

Fans were asked if they wanted to see the return of either prawn cocktail or salt and vinegar – both of which were big sellers in the 1990s but saw their popularity tail off.
But the number of people clamouring to demand each of the options persuaded the company to just make both flavours again.
Will Robinson of Walkers said: “After being inundated with requests, tweets and petitions over the years, we know just how excited everyone is going to be to try these legendary flavours again.
“Following a challenging 2020, I’m sure we could all benefit from a moment of Quavers floaty light enjoyment, and I’m personally looking forward to snacking like it’s the nineties again.”
The returning flavours also come in Quavers’ signature curly shape and with their crunchy, melt-in-the-mouth texture.
After putting out a tweet asking which of the flavours people most wanted to see return, Walkers fans replied with about 190,000 tweets.
The company said: “Stacking up a staggering 190,000 votes in just four days and thousands of comments from fans stating their undying love, we eventually decided to reinstate both, after a hiatus of almost a decade.”
The returning flavours will be available as a grab bag – on sale with a recommended price of 85p – as a multipack of six for £1.50, as a £1 price-marked pack (PMP) and as a sharing bag for £1.
They will be available at selected Tesco, Morrisons, Asda and Co-op stores and online as well as independent convenience stores.
