Thread: Creative Genius at Walkers

  1. #1

    Default Creative Genius at Walkers

    I just had a packet of Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding flavour crisps. That's what I call innovative.

    it has long been my contention that the countrys finest minds gravitate to jobs at walkers. the company is a true powerhouse. oriental crackers, the great british takeaway range, the mini poppodums, flavours like pickled onion, worcester sauce, tomato ketchup, even their aquisitions have been inspired giving new life to smiths and their classic crisps (monster munch, the brilliant squares range etc) walkers are the only thing the british people can be justly proud of.

    This time last year I was writing all their employment ads. The phrases 'Sensational salty snacks" and "tongue-tinglingly tasty lunchtime treats" had to be included in every ad, BY LAW.

    They're owned by Frito-Lay, the US snack giant, if I'm not wrong.

    I guess that makes 'em even more british...

    that doesn't take anything away from the truly gifted people making the magic happen. chip shop curry sauce flavour was not conceived in ohio thats for sure.

    Did they buy McCoy's, or are they a separate company still?

    The point is:

    Walker's Take Away range = Cultural milestone.

    It's not just Walkers though is it, although as a Leicester lad I appreciate their intrinsic genius? I've always thought the UK led the Western hemisphere, if not the world, in potato, corn and wheat based snacks. I am slight disturbed by the concept of a 'Mild Cheese' Wotsit, but am greatly enjoying the 'Really Cheesy' Twisted Wotsits as compensation...

    I've also become slightly hooked on the RedMill range of snacks, in particular 'Pickled Onion Transform-a-Snack'. 20p for a slice of heaven/hell. I just can't decide but I keep coming back for more...

    My girlfriend's father actually works for Walkers deliverying snacks across the UK. We always enjoy that every Boxing Day he has to get out there and deliver more crisps as though one day without fresh(!) crisps was all the UK could take. We always tell him 'the UK needs snacks, now more than ever'...

    I'll shutup now...

    yeah red mill deserves some credit, they're like the underground of the crisp market. they make the best onion rings on the market and their mini poppodoms are not bad either.
