Richard Bootman got the shock of his life when he opened his packet of Steak and Onion potato chips.
The 25-year-old architectural designer from Mildenhall, Suffolk had been to his local supermarket and was looking forward to tucking in to the snack when he disappointedly discovered that the entire contents of the bag had been replaced by a single potato.
"I didn't notice the packet was any different," he recalled. "It was in a multipack and I was working at the time so I just grabbed the bag to open while working. When I opened it and realised, it was just disbelief. We were laughing, and the whole office was the same."
After posting a photograph of his discovery on social media however Bootman's story ended up going viral and even made headlines as far away as Russia where it was featured on the news.
"The fact that it has hit off in so many places amazes me because I only posted it on Facebook to friends as I found it so unbelievable," he said.
