PepsiCo’s new ‘Regional Flavours’ TV advert for its Walkers brand celebrates the crisps’ unusual flavours, and the regions in which they’re loved.

The advert, narrated by ex-footballer and brand ambassador Gary Linekar, continues to mark Walkers’ 70th anniversary, and offers shoppers a chance of winning £5,000.

Andrew Hawkswell, marketing manager at PepsiCo, said:  “The storyline behind the advert highlights four of the six regions who particularly love certain flavours: Pickled Onion, Smoky Bacon, Marmite and Beef & Onion."

Following the campaign launch in July, the flavours have also undergone a pack design makeover to put emphasis on their regional credentials, as well as promoting an on-pack promotion to further increase sales.

The regional flavours campaign is also being supported by a marketing campaign, including digital and in-store advertising, from this month onward.
