Non specific crisps (Picture: Getty)Last night channel 5 ran a documentary titled ‘Britain’s Favourite Crisps’ which attempted to create a definitive ranking of the nation’s favourite crisps.
The documentary has since become the center of a nationwide debate.
At the bottom of the rankings sit Mini Cheddars (debatable whether they’re actually crisps as not made from potato) Nik Naks, Square and Salt N Shake.
Next up you’ve got a mid tier of Wotsits, Quavers, Monster Munch, Chipsticks and Hula Hoops.
The top tier is occupied by McCoys, the super middle class favourite Kettle Chips, Sensations and Tyrells.
At the top, on the God tier are Pringles, Doritos and Walkers.
(Picture: C5)But making such a controversial documentary was never going to fly under the radar.
Twitter was set alight by commentators who were horrified by the placement of their favourite crisps.

What a load of bollocks. If it doesn’t come in a packet it’s not counted (looking at you Pringles). Doritos are cardboard. Walkers have zero flavour. Nik-Naks are the crisps of the gods. Where the fuck are Skips? Quavers and Wotsits are also Top Tier minimum. #bullshit https://t.co/gS8htrkutb

And of course there were lots of jokes about Brexit because that’s what we do now.
You can’t be surprised that a vote to find Britain’s favourite type of crisps gave such poor results. We are so shit at voting for the right thing I’m surprised the top rated crisp wasn’t a shoe.
