It started with an innocent tweet: "@LaysSouthAfrica Have you discontinued the Salt & Vinegar flavour. Can’t seem to find it anywhere for the last few weeks now."

For those who don't know, Lay's South Africa have officially discontinued the flavour chips in the country, and it's caused much discord among the masses. After responding to @LailaManie's post, Twitter went into overdrive, sparking fierce debate in snack land.

And if you're a fan of the salt and vinegar variety, Lay's SA tried to soften the blow by suggesting a replacement in the form of Lay’s Sweet and Smoky American BBQ Flavour. By the looks of things, it didn't go down well.

Unfortunately, the snacks of our childhood have the tendency to do a disappearing act. Remember when Cadbury stopped making the Tempo chocolate bar, or when Maynard Sour Jelly Beans were no more?

Our thoughts go out to those who have lost a dear snack in Lay's Salt & Vinegar. In the meantime, maybe try the Willards Crinkle Cut? We hear it smacks of flavour...
