After a year of no Lay's salt & vinegar chips, the flavour has made its return.

Fans of Lay’s South Africa’s Salt & Vinegar chips were left shocked in February 2020, when the company announced it was discontinuing the flavour, but now, exactly a year later, there is some good news.

Lay’s SA has been hinting the last few days of the return of salt & vinegar is coming soon. Responding cheekily to tweets from customers enquiring when salt & vinegar is coming back, Lay’s SA said some dreams do come true.

South African consumers can now breathe a sigh of relief, Lay’s SA officially confirmed on Friday on their Twitter account.


The flavour was replaced by the sweet and smoky American BBQ flavour.
