In the grand pantheon of remarkable crisps, Monster Munch would rate quite highly.

They were even voted the world's best crisp in Richard Osman's Twitter "World Cup of Crisps" last year, beating off stiff competition from Wotsits in the final.

So yeah, we love Monster Munch, but now it's starting to look like we might have been fundamentally wrong about a very important part of our favourite corn snacks this entire time – their shape.

Monster Munch are little monster claws, right? That's just what they are. We've always thought that, and there's no reason to think any different, yeah?

WRONG!

(Maybe)

This tweet from @TheSeshLad is blowing people's minds, by saying that they're not claws, they're actually little monsters with big arms and heads.

People are pretty shaken up by it.

You're probably thinking right now that this is just a coincidence. They do look like little monsters, but that doesn't mean they're not still meant to be claws. Nothing to worry about, right?

WRONG AGAIN!

(Maybe)

See, when you look at the Wikipedia page for Monster Munch, it says THIS:

That's right, according to Wikipedia: "Monster Munch are a baked corn snack aimed at children that are shaped like an upside down monster with long arms".

Things just got real (also, feck you Wikipedia with your "aimed at children" rubbish, I am a grown adult and I will eat Monster Munch whenever I please).

However, on the bags themselves, the pictures of the crisps all look like they're claw-way up, though it doesn't actually say on them what shape they're meant to be. WHAT IS THE TRUTH?
