Blog: Veggie delight – or rather, shock!

Catherine Sleep | 21 January 2004

Walkers Crisps (PepsiCo subsidiary, HUGE in the UK) are going to change the recipe for their Cheese & Onion variety to make them suitable for consumption by vegetarians.

That’s good news, but two vegetarians of my acquaintance expressed surprise that they weren’t veggie in the first place. I know that the weird and wonderful world of flavours and fragrances works in strange ways, but how can it be that Walkers’ Prawn Cocktail, Smoky Bacon, Chinese Spare Rib, Beef & Onion, Roast Chicken and Chicken Tikka Masala varieties are all vegetarian, but not the Cheese & Onion flavour, i.e. one which does not include meat in the name? Confusing or what?
