Man accidentally eats Walkers crisp worth £100,000


We’ve all done things we regret, but those mistakes rarely cost us £100,000.

Yep, a lot of zeroes, isn’t it?

Thankfully, the majority of us will never have to experience what it’s like to make a £100k mistake, but for Cardiff, Wales resident Cory, a TikToker and crisp enthusiast, it might already be too late.

The 26-year-old has built a fan base on TikTok by posting a variety of food-related content, such as the well-known “what I eat in a day” videos.

Each social media user has undoubtedly seen dozens of these posts on various internet platforms because they deliver exactly what they promise. Yet, I bet you’ve never seen one as bad as Cory’s.

After posting a video of himself admitting that he had unintentionally eaten a Walkers crisp that was potentially worth £100,000, the TikToker became a hit on social media.

Unfortunately, Cory had missed the advertisement on the crisp package that stated Walker’s was giving away £100,000 to a lucky winner who found the crisp with the perfect heart shape.

His fans didn’t start pointing out that he had exactly what Walker’s were searching for a heart-shaped crisp until after he released his “what I eat in a day” video online.

After having previously crunched on the crisp, Cory explained: “I posted my ‘What I eat in a day video’ not thinking anything of it, and then the video was flooded with comments talking about the £100k heart-shaped crisp.

“People were commenting on the video saying I’d eaten a £100k crisp, then I went live on TikTok and people were commenting to ask if I’d contacted Walkers.”

Cory admitted that it took him ‘around six days’ to realise his mistake.

“I started to look into it while I was with my girlfriend Lea and we watched my video back. We saw the crisp so we screenshotted it, cropped it and flipped it around – and low and behold it was the heart-shaped crisp,” he said.

“At the time my, girlfriend had a packet of Walkers with her so we did a comparison and that’s when it hit me that I’d just eaten the £100k prize.”

While other people might have sobbed over the lost chance, Cory claimed that he and his partner Lea “burst into laughter.”

Thankfully, the TikToker was able to see the bright side of things and said: “I wasn’t even angry or anything like that, just so shocked. I can’t believe it happened and that I even caught it on camera.

“I told people at work and they said they didn’t believe me either until I showed them the video. It’s a good job I do my ‘what eat in a day’ videos so that I could prove it.”

Cory said he’d have spent the money on a holiday, house renovations and charity donations, but unfortunately those plans turned to dust as he bit down on the crisp.

When the Walkers spokeswoman learned about Cory’s misfortune, she said: “Such a shame that Cory has eaten that crisp! We do need to be fair to all the other Walkers fans that have followed our competition T&Cs and held onto their crisp for safekeeping, so I’m afraid we won’t be able to accept his entry this time round. There’s still time if he wants to enter!”

Here’s hope the crisp at least gave Cory a satisfying snack, even if it didn’t fill up his wallet.
