Charlie Brooker: Exciting new crisp flavours? More like a dirty protest in mass-produced packets

Amusing article by Charlie Brooker about the launch of Walkers flavours competition finalists on The Guardian website :

"Exciting new crisp flavours? More like a dirty protest in mass-produced packets. Walkers are keen to point out that no squirrels were harmed in the making of their crisps"

The competition is split into three stages

Stage one: the public were invited to suggest exotic new flavours.
Stage two: Six flavours were chosen for the public to vote for their favourite.
Stage three: The top flavour becomes a permanent member of the Walkers line-up.

The finalists are

Builders Breakfast
Crispy Duck and Hoison
Cajun Squirrel
Chilli and Chocolate
Fish and Chips
Onion Bhaji

I still remember the hedgehof flavour and traffic warden flavour which were introduced in the 1980's, they never caught on either
