Cereal Killer - the cereal café Bogof reported on in December - is, remarkably, still open. It’s testament to the enduring power of nostalgia (and people’s reluctance to make breakfast).

A Belfast businessman has seized the opportunity. Andrew McMenamin’s pop-up, Simply Crispy, specialises in crisp sandwiches. Belfasters are apparently too embarrassed to be spotted shoving crisps into their own sarnies, so are instead flocking to the café, where it seems amusingly ironic.

Most popular is the classic combo of cheese & onion Taytos and Belfast bap, but if you want to push the boat out you can add ham and/or cheese, or even order soup - which comes topped with Monster Munch croutons.

Bogof plans to follow the trend and open an establishment in which the staff shove cheesy Wotsits up your nose. Everyone did that, right?
