Crisp enthusiasts will be brimming with nostalgia as an old favourite is making a comeback.

A classic crisp flavour that was a staple in many British childhoods is set to make a triumphant return to the shelves - guaranteed to leave taste buds tantalised. It's good news for those who can't resist the tangy taste of salt and vinegar.

Currently you can't buy a six pack of just one flavour of Disco's, but this is about to change.

Salt and vinegar Discos will be available in B&M, Sainsbury's, and Asda from mid-April, priced at £1.50 for the six-pack containing six 25.5g servings. A wider release in supermarkets including Farmfoods and Tesco is planned for mid-June, reports the Mirror.

Currently, 50g grab bags of Discos crisps are available in Asda for £1, while Tesco also offers larger 86g bags for £1.25. For those wanting to stock up on larger quantities of the iconic crisp, Amazon sells 16 of the 70g bags for £19.29, each marked at £1.25.

KP Snacks, the makers of beloved treats like McCoy's, Space Raiders, and Nik Naks, have brought back their salt and vinegar Discos to the delight of fans. In 2015, the company decided to discontinue the bacon flavour, much to the dismay of its loyal customer base.

A spokesperson for KP Snacks had previously said: "Unfortunately the popularity of this snack has been on a downward trend for a while, therefore, sadly, production was no longer commercially viable and the product had to be discontinued. We have no plans in producing these again in the near future. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news."

But it's not just Discos making headlines in the world of crisps. Last month, Aldi caused a stir with their limited edition Specially Selected Chilli and Maple Flavour Parsnip crisps, which were met with rave reviews online, as shoppers described them as "amazing" and "lush".

February also saw the triumphant return of another classic crisp flavour, leaving fans overjoyed. Although Walkers Marmite crisps had been off the shelves for some time, a new partnership with Tayto has resurrected the savoury treat, now boasting an even stronger flavour that's winning over taste buds once again.
