Walkers confirms ANOTHER popular crunchy flavor has been removed from shelves “without notice”.

Shoppers have complained that WALKERS has removed another popular crispy variety from its shelves “without notice”.

The snack maker has told customers it is no longer making the popular Quavers flavor, which only returned two years ago.

The comment was in response to a fan’s question about what happened to the salt and vinegar flavored Quavers.

“I can’t find them anywhere,” they said on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Walkers replied: “We’re sorry to break it to you, Linda, but we no longer make this flavor.”

The retro flavor was first added to the Walkers range in 1993 and returned to shelves in 2021 alongside the Quavers prawn cocktail following demand from crisp lovers.

The fan replied: “And without notice. This is a sad day.”

Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson is among those who love the soon-to-be-defunct taste.

Shortly after the crisp taste returned, she tweeted: “Why have I only discovered salt and vinegar quavers now?”

Others weren’t quite as convinced.

After discovering the essential lunch, comedian Tim Vine said: “I’m trying to decide if salt and vinegar flavored eighths are a good idea or the start of the apocalypse.”

But since the comeback, the chips have developed a cult following.

One fan called them “the best chips ever” and added: “If they stop making these salt and vinegar eights again they’ll be crazy.”

You can currently still buy multipacks of six 16g sachets for £1.95 on the Tesco website.

We couldn’t find them online at other stores such as Asda and Sainsbury’s.

However, you may still be able to purchase them in-store or from local independent stores.

The Sun contacted Walkers for comment.

This came after Walkers confirmed its Worcester Sauce flavored crisps were “no longer part of our range” and left shoppers upset.

Additionally, the beef and onion flavor was discontinued last year.

The crisp brand also announced that it has made a big change to the recipe of its Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations – and fans are not happy about it.

Chips aren’t the only treat on the menu either.

Chocolate giant Nestlé has said it will stop producing its Caramac bar after 60 years.

Earlier this year, Caburys quietly removed the popular Dairy Milk bar with 30 percent less sugar, which is no longer available for purchase.

Plus, the iconic Topic dark chocolate bar is now missing from shelves.

But it’s not all bad news, as some favorite flavors have returned.

Quality Street has included its coffee-flavored candy in specific cans for the first time in 20 years.

Cadbury’s chocolate coins are back on shelves after a decade of absence and shoppers are thrilled.

Meanwhile, Lucozades Caribbean Crush is available again after being temporarily discontinued due to supplier issues.
