A work colleague came in today with a packet of Salt & Vinegar Walkers and offered me one, to which I declined saying, thanks, but as they have lactose and dried milk in them, I will abstain (he know's I'm vegan). He looked at the ingredients and said no they haven't! So I checked them and they haven't! This was a new packet design which I hadn't seen before <a href="http://www.walkers.co.uk/OurRange/Index?pageName=walkerscrisps" target="_blank">http://www.walkers.co.uk/OurRange/In...=walkerscrisps</a><br><br>
So I had one and it was lovely! Missed those bad boys. I called in to my local petrol station on the way home to find the ones they had were in the old packet so weren't vegan friendly (so I had some chilli doritos) Can you tell I'm a crisp fiend <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
Anyway, thought I would share the good news <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

GET IN!<br><br>
Though McCoy's salt & vinegar are better (but for the terrible, sexist branding).<br><br>
More vegan crisps = better world :-D

Yay!!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><br><br>
I know a lot of vegans made a complaint about that issue so maybe they took notice.

Appologies from the Canadian barging in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> I looked at the label, are they the same as Lays?<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.canadaonly.ca/product_images/l/531/LAYS_Classic__68876_zoom.png" style="border:0px solid;"><img alt="" src="http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lrgz40kYIn1r0ia8lo1_500.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
The logo is almost identical. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

They're a UK company that was eventually taken over by Lay's, but they retained the name even though they changed the logo to match.<br><br>
From what I know, the ingredients for Lay's are sometimes different to Walker's.<br><br>
And yay to vegan salt and vinegar ones! Now, if only they'd do the same for the 'baked' variety.

Last week after making that post, I went on the Walkers website and through their contact them page, told them how delighted I was they had stopped adding dairy in their salt and vinegar crisps and had they any plans remove dairy from some other flavours. A very nice lady from Walkers rang me today to thank them for the feedback, but said they only got to find that type of information out when the packets are released and not before. She is going to post me a full list of their vegan crisps though, including all their corn based snacks as well. I shall post the info on here when I get it.

Thanks - although I eat Tyrells salt and vinegar there are times when it just has to be Walkers so fab news that I can eat them again.
