Cajun Squirrel the new chip?
Walkers launches new line of crisps after competition to find taste of 21st century
Irked by cheese and onion? Dispirited by prawn cocktail? Bored with ready-salted? Well, why not reach for a bag of Cajun squirrel-flavored crisps? Or perhaps you'd like to try chilli and chocolate.
From today, jaded snackers will be able to choose from six wacky new crisp flavors – which also include crispy duck, onion bhaji, fish and chips and builder's breakfast – following a competition the snack giant Walkers organized to find a 21st century rival to our old favorites.
The most popular pack will go into full-time production after a public vote ends in May.
