Here's the story from A to Z

This is a featured post in collaboration with Walkers crisps.

Now here’s the story from A-Z….

If you didn’t sing that sentence to a certain Spice girls song then…. Well I am not sure how to end that

I grew up in the 90s. The 90s were my school years, leaving primary school and entering high school, leaving high school for college and learning to drive a car. The 90s saw me leave childhood and become a teenager, almost into adulthood. They were a big part of my life. 

My musical taste is, well let’s say not mainstream, but that doesn’t mean I don’t remember the songs of the 90s. I remember my sister having a Spice girls poster on her bedroom wall and her listening to their songs. Whilst I wasn’t listening to them direct, they had an indirect impact on me. For some reason I seem to know the words to the vast majority of their songs. In fact watching my friends and sisters perform the dance moves to Spice Girls stop means that they are permanently etched into my brain even to this day. 

My Facebook timeline and my Instagram newsfeed is currently flooded with 90s bands. Take That reunion tour, Westlife reunion tour and the Spice Girls. It’s almost like the 90s again, except I have young children in tow and want to be in bed by 9.30pm. I see the excitement on my friends faces as they head out to watch the bands they loved growing up, it’s almost like been back there again only this time with a lot more grey hairs thrown in.

It would appear it is not just my social media timeline that is reliving the 90s. Walkers, the UK’s favourite crisp brand, has teamed up with iconic girl group, Spice Girls, for a nostalgic throwback to the 90s in its new TV advert and have begun the search for the  Spice Girls Best Ever Fan, during the girls UK tour. Fans were asked to post a Spice Girls related snapshot from back in the day, or to create something new and share on their social channel of choice, tagging @Walkers_Crisps and hashtagging #BestEverFan.

The entries have been amazing and I would recommend you have a look, there really are some serious fans out there. How they will choose I winner I do not know. As for the advert, well that runs from 2nd June until the 21st July 2019 and in case you missed it you can watch it again here.
