I have been very stressed about Walker’s most recent advertising campaign. For those who haven’t seen it, the basic principle is that they are pitting two different flavours of crisps against each other - a new one and a “best of British” one. The one that sells the most out of each pairing will be… Continue reading I Will Die If They Discontinue Salt & Vinegar Walkers.
Up until 5th April 2017, I was a distinctly average 23 year old. Average height, average weight, slightly below average shoe size and generally nothing to write home about.
