Vinegar could be removed from supermarket shelves after it was discovered that another generation of children were trying to make home-made Salt & Vinegar crisps.
Parents had hoped that the popular, but woefully ineffective, 1970’s practice of pouring vinegar into a pack of Ready Salted Crisps had long since died out.
But recent reports have shown that children have again been producing the doomed compound that yields wet crisps, with a fierce acidic drink at the foot of the bag. Disappointed Parent, Peter Thape (44) has been hiding the Sarson’s.
‘I became a leading surgeon, so that my children wouldn’t have to do this,’ said Thape.
‘I’ll never buy multipack crisps again. Society’s modern-day curse,’ added Thape.
