LONDON, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- A British fan of Monster Munch potato chips has undergone a legal name change to share the same moniker as his favorite brand of snack food.

Monster Munch, 26, said he changed his name from Chris Hunt by deed poll because he has always loved the brand and his friends did not believe he would go through with the name change when he first started talking about it, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

"They looked at me like I was nuts and dared me to change my name," Munch said of his friends.

"I don't think they thought I would go through with it -- but now I demand to be called either 'Monster' or 'Mr. Munch.'"
