Walkers are the kings of UK crisps with French Fries offering their customers a different experience to classic disc shaped crisps. French Fries are essentially chips in crisp format with salt and vinegar being the most popular flavour. They’re thin and crunchy which gives the impression of lower fats and sugars – but is that the case?
They are often marketed as being under a certain calorie per pack and the bags they come in are often small – multipack bags being 18g and loose bags being 21g – grab bags are usually over 30g. They also come in ready salted, cheese and onion and Worcester sauce.
