IRISH people Down Under are panic buying potato waffles after Birds Eye announced it is to pull the product from Australia and New Zealand.
There have been no shipments of the frozen delight to the Southern Hemisphere since the end of April.
Waffle enthusiasts there are searching high and low to bulk buy as many boxes as they can.
T cl p They have been reduced to clear by many retailers in preparation for their demise.
1,300 Birds Eye waffles are up in fridge pm Such is the passion for potato waffles by expats missing them from home, a Facebook group was set up to campaign for Birds Eye to ship them to Australia.
b k A message from the Facebook page administrator reads: "This page was set up in the hope the Birds Eye will see there is a massive demand from Irish and English people living in Australia for Birds Eye Potato Waffle."
And since the news broke, author Tizzie Hall, who is originally from Dublin, has manage to snap up 1,300 of the snacks.
She shared an image of her successful mission online, much to the delight of 2,000 people who liked the photograph.
There does seem to be hope for the fate of the waffly versatile product.
Plans are now in motion online urging ALDI Australia to bring back their own version of the potato squares.
