A day doesn’t go by when I’m not asked by someone to bring back a flavour from the past. Now it seems, for Beef & Onion fans, their wish has come true.”

Commenting on the success of the competition, Walkers’ marketing director Rachel Holmes said: “The success of this campaign has absolutely exceeded all expectations.
