Monster Munch fan in disbelief as on-line order delivers sudden snack jackpot

A woman was left gobsmacked after she hit the jackpot with her Monster Munch crisps order.

There’s nothing quite like cracking open a bag of crisps when you’re peckish, and Monster Munch remains a firm favourite among snackers. Since its debut in 1977, these uniquely shaped, flavour-packed crisps have been a hit with both kids and adults alike – Roast Beef, Pickled Onion, and Flamin’ Hot being the standout flavours.

One devotee, Katy Boswell, recently placed an online order with B&M for a few groceries – making sure to add her beloved claw-shaped nibbles to her cart. She ordered two six-pack bags of Beef Monster Munch. But she was left stunned when she received 11 individual bags of Beef Monster Munch and one bag of Pickled Onion instead.

Taking to X recently, the Walkers enthusiast exclaimed: “@walkers_crisps did I just win the crisp lottery? Bought two packs of six beef Monster Munch and I’ve ended up with 11 packets of Roast Beef and one Pickled Onion.”

A spokesperson for Walkers responded to the tweet, joking that there was an “imposter” in her order. They added: “Drop into our DMs and we’ll get this put right for you, thanks Katy.”

Katy’s blunder comes after walkers fans expressed they were “disappointed” recently after noticing the iconic Flamin’ Hot Monster Munch appeared to “disappear” from shop shelves. A dismayed consumer took to X (formerly Twitter) to voice their concern, asking: “What is happening with Monster Munch Flamin’ Hot? ! Cannot be found anywhere only the sweet and spicy variation which cannot compete with the original.”

In a reassuring response, the company explained that the cherished flavour had undergone a revamp. They stated: “We have given them a facelift! They are now called Sweet & Spicy Flamin’ Hot. We’ll be sure to pass your comments over to the wider team.”

Walkers has also broadened its Flamin’ Hot range with the addition of Extra Flamin’ Hot Doritos. Rob Pothier, the firm’s senior marketing manager for Doritos, commented in March: “Shoppers are looking for elevated snacking experiences and intense flavours, so we’re turning up the heat with this launch. We can’t wait to bring Extra Flamin’ Hot to the UK, and given the response we’ve already seen worldwide, we’re certain shoppers will be just as excited.”

“We know spicy snackers shop flavour ahead of brand, so we are encouraging retailers to merchandise the range together to form a striking purple block in-aisle to disrupt shoppers and drive sales. We’re sure this new flavour experience will keep shoppers coming back for more.”
