Twitter explodes as Lay's South Africa confirms the salt and vinegar flavour is discontinued

SA shoppers have been on the rampage today as Lay's South Africa sneakily confirmed that they've pulled the much-loved salt and vinegar flavour.


The staple snack, which could be considered one of the most popular flavour choices of the chip range, has been hard to find on-shelf recently. Now, after a disgruntled chip lover queried the mysterious disappearance of the mouth-puckering snack, Lay's has officially explained that the salt and vinegar flavour has been discontinued and will no longer be available at your local supermarket or corner shop.

In a tweet, which caused the Twitterverse to blow up, the Simba Chip brand explains: "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. :)"

Food24 has reached out to Lay's for further information. Stay tuned for new developments.

In the meantime, take a look at some of the responses from Lay's salt and vinegar fans!
