Walkers Crisp Cheese & Onion 32.5g Bags (box of 32)
Cheese and Onion Despite sounding wonderfully rustic, the ploughman’s lunch of cheese, onion salad and bread is actually a 20th century invention.
The English Country Cheese Council created the nostalgic name as a marketing ploy.
It worked – the Ploughman’s Lunch is now a pub favourite and, for some people, Cheese and Onion is the ultimate flavour combo!
Nation’s favourite Crisps
From field to crisp
Ever wondered, while tucking into a bag of Walkers, how our crisps are made? Well, we’d love to be able to pretend that it’s a terribly complicated process like rocket science, so that you’d be really impressed with how clever we are.
But the fact is that making our crisps is fairly simple.
1. Plant a potato seed and pray for some good old British weather!
2. Pick, and double check it’s a top quality spud
3. Wash, peel and slice it
4. Cook in SUNSEED Oil – naturally lower in saturates
5. Season with a sprinkle of Walkers magic!
And that’s it. From farmer’s field to your taste buds in five simple steps! We said it wasn’t rocket science…
The Walkers Story
Long, long ago (well, the 1880’s) in a Midlands town not so far away (Leicester!), a butcher named Henry Walker opened a new butcher’s shop and for a while things went well.
But by 1945 meat was scarce so that Henry branched out and began cooking slices of potato.
They sold well and in 1954 the first flavoured crisps were created, Cheese and Onion was born! Henry Walker became Walkers and by the 1980’s, we had loads of great flavours and chose Leicester’s favourite son Gary Lineker to help sell our tasty wares to the world.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
