Wotsits fan opens up a packet to find just ONE crisp inside 

Shopper, 43, is left baffled after opening a bag of Wotsits to find just ONE ‘perfectly shaped’ crisp inside

  • Andy Stubbs bought multipack of the cheesy flavour corn puffs for family lunch
  • But when he shook one of the bags, Andy realised there was a single puff inside
  • He held onto pack for months before his wife Jane finally urged him to open bag
  • The family, of Sidcup in Kent, watched on as a ‘perfectly-shaped Wotsit’ fell out

A father-of-two was left scratching his head after opening a bag of Wotsits to find just one crisp inside.

Software developer Andy Stubbs bought a multipack of the cheesy flavour corn puffs for lunch with his family.

But when the 43-year-old reached for one of the bags and shook it, Andy realised there was only a single puff inside.

He shook the bag to make his payroll manager wife Jane, 39, and two sons, Oscar, nine, and Harry, five, laugh before deciding to keep it unopened as a novelty.

Little Harry was desperate to open the bag and eat whatever was inside, but Andy decided to hold onto it ‘as a memento’.

Andy was recently urged by Jane to open the bag, though, when she read the story of 41-year-old Steve Smith, who found one baked bean in a Heinz tin.

The family gathered round the kitchen table and watched on as Andy opened the bag on Saturday, and a single, perfectly-shaped Wotsit fell out.

Andy from Sidcup, south-east London, said: ‘It’s not often you get a one-Wotsit bag of Wotsits, is it?

‘I’d bought a multipack for the family a couple of months back, and I’d gone to get a bag of Wotsits because – why not?

‘Lo and behold – when I held the bag, I could feel it was full of air. I shook it around, and realised there might only have been one Wotsit inside.

‘So I showed it to Jane and the boys, and we all cried our eyes out.

‘Harry really wanted to open the bag, mostly because he wanted to eat it. But I said that it would be funnier to keep it as a memento.

‘When Jane saw in the news about the guy who only had a one-bean tin of baked beans, she encouraged me to open it up and see.

‘When I opened it, there was something slightly anti-climactic about it. We’d known for a while there was probably just one Wotsit.

‘But it didn’t stop the whole thing from being funny.’

Andy, who bought the bag in June, but added: ‘It [the crisp] felt quite stale. I wouldn’t let my son eat that.’

A packet of Wotsits should contain an average of 42 puffs inside.
