    An update from the VegSoc:

    From this month, Walkers Smoky Bacon and Roast Chicken flavour crisps will no longer be vegetarian (as they will now include Freedom Food pork and free range chicken seasonings).

    A disappointing and unnecessary decision, we encourage you to get in touch with Walkers to let them know your thoughts:
    Consumer careline 0800 274777 or email consumer@walkers.co.uk

    Why not check out Vegetarian Society Approved crisps instead?

    @AliceinPonderland, thanks! The more people that email them, the more likely they will be to reconsider the new ingredients.

    Well thats a pity. I’ve just recently got in to their smoky bacon ones -.- I’ll email them too but I’m sure I’ll just get the same reply as you. Such a pity when its not necessary. I bet they taste almost the same after too :/

    This is the reply I got from them (Note: not all the flavours they’ve listed are vegan).

    Many thanks for your email to let us know your thoughts on our new Walkers flavours and I am really sorry that you will no longer be able to enjoy Walkers Roast Chicken and Smoky Bacon flavoured crisps. I can understand your concerns over this matter however; we are using only Free Range Chicken and Freedom Food Pork to ensure the highest standards of animal welfare. I do hope you will continue to enjoy the many flavours that remain suitable for vegetarians which include:

    • Unmistakably Cheese & Onion (With Cheese from Somerset)
    • Definitively Prawn Cocktail (With Vale of Evesham Tomatoes)
    • Classically Ready Salted (With Salt from Cheshire)
    • Distinctively Salt & Vinegar (With Real British Vinegar)
    • Undeniably Pickled Onion (With Real British Vinegar)
    • Deliciously Sour Cream & Chive (With Sour Cream from Dorset)
    • Tantalisingly Tomato Ketchup (With Vale of Evesham Tomatoes)
    • Famously Worcester Sauce (Blended in Britain)

    Thanks again for taking the time to contact us; we do appreciate it.

    Kind regards
