Gary Lineker, whom this years mark his 20th anniversary working with Walkers, said: “I’m not surprised we had such a huge response from Walkers crisps fans. 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.
