A YOUNG West Cumbrian couple believe they may have just landed themselves £100,000, after finding a heart-shaped crisp within their packet.

Crisp manufacturer Walkers is giving away £100,000 to anyone who finds the best heart-shaped specimen in any of its standard bags.

The competition started in January and is running for two months, with the crisp manufacturer saying heart-shaped crisps can be found in its packs because of the 'natural shapes' of the British potatoes it uses.

The woman, who did not want to be named, said: "It was Sunday, we were sat waiting for the cup final, my boyfriend just opened a packet of tomato ketchup crisps and was just sat there eating them.



"I said to him 'Can I have one?' so he handed me one out of the packet, and I just went, 'Oh my word that's a love heart'.

"I said to him have you not seen the crack about people eating the £100,000 crisps on TikTok that are love hearts? I Googled it all and showed him and we realised we were on to a winner."

However after finding the crisp, the young couple are now 'guarding it with their lives', locking it in a tupperware box alongside the packet and hiding it in their home.
