What are Lay’s potato chips known as in the U.K.?
Frito-Lay is a big international corporation, and you can find their potato chips in all sorts of places. But don’t look for “Lay’s” in the United Kingdom, because you won’t find them — in the U.K., the classic brand name “Walker’s” is still found in grocery stores. Lay’s bought Walker’s years ago, but the company realized that loyal Walker’s fans would not appreciate the Lay’s brand — so they simply used Walker’s name on the Lay’s chips.
