Don't Panic But Cheese And Onion Crisps Are 'Under Threat'

Don't Panic But Cheese And Onion Crisps Are 'Under Threat'

When it comes to crisps, cheese and onion is the best flavour to ever exist, hands down, and it doesn't really get much better than a good old packet of Walkers.

So, if you agree with the above sentiment entirely, then cheese and onion crisp fanatics will be gutted to hear that the crunchy treats are currently under threat.

That's right, all this unusually hot weather we have been experiencing here in the UK is causing a vegetable shortage, reports the Sun.

According to the publication, this heatwave could potentially ruin the onion harvest this year, and there has already been a pour potato yield earlier this year. Uh oh.

And in another blow, Walkers is preparing for a shortage of cheese if a deal for Brexit can't be reached, meaning packets of cheese and onion crisps could be few and far between.

British Onions' Tim Elcombe told the paper: "We badly need rain but the ground is so hard, a deluge will run off."

It doesn't stop there either. Onions are not the only veggie at risk, as peas and carrots could be in short supply too. Well, that's our roast dinners pretty much ruined then. At least it's not the Yorkshire puds.

And if you are on a health kick, lettuce production may also be affected by the recent hot weather.

YouGov stats say that cheese and onion are the nation's fave type of crisps, with 31 percent of participants asked in the study choosing that specific flavour, meaning there could be uproar if there's a shortage.

Surprisingly, ready salted came in close behind with 28 percent of those taking part saying it was their favourite, Salt and Vinegar was 23 percent and prawn cocktail was just 11 percent.

Get ready to stockpile cheese and onion crisps if you can't bear to be without them.
