Dear Sir,

I recently purchased a bag of air, otherwise known as Walkers Crisps. Without doubt, it is absurd to think you can spoil our traditional British heritage with foreign flavoured crisps! What on earth is ‘CHICKEN CURRY’ or ‘STEAK FAJITA’? If it is not from the magnolious potatoes of this great nation’s soil then I refuse to contaminate oneself.

 

If it is at all possible, you should refine your range of potato crisps to a plain flavour. It is ludicrous to think there is freedom of choice nowadays – we certainly did not have that in the good ol’ days! May I take this opportunity to condemn the liberty you are offering. It is scandalous to imagine people are allowed to break with the traditional values of our Queen.

 

I shan’t try any more of your so-called crisps until you meet the exceptional levels of crunchiness shown by Kettle Chips. I cannot bear the thought of consuming the cheap quality of Walkers Crisps and dismissing such a well-priced prestigious snack.

Yours faithfully,

Edna Welthorpe, (Mrs)
