Lay’s has quietly announced that it has discontinued its classic salt and vinegar flavoured crisps. This comes after consumers have been questioning why they can no longer find this particular flavour on shelves across South Africa’s supermarkets.
In a Tweet that seemingly blew up the Twitterverse, the Simba Chip brand simply says: “Lay’s Salt & Vinegar Flavour has been discontinued and will no longer be available in the market. We however invite you to try our new Lay’s Sweet and Smoky American BBQ Flavour. We do hope you enjoy our other flavours from our range too. :)”
