Five Childhood Crisps Which We Treasured

You just can't beat a packet of crisps, can you? Well maybe you can, but there's no denying they're still pretty scrumptious! A staple of British culture for decades, let's take a trip down memory lane with five we used to love as kids...

1. Tudor Cheese Moments: 

Tudor Cheese Moments may not have the recognition of some major brands, but they were a delightful hidden gem. These crisps featured a rich and creamy cheese flavour that was truly exceptional. While they may have faded into obscurity, those who enjoyed Tudor Cheese Moments will always remember the distinct taste and textured crunch that made them a cherished childhood snack.


2. Brannigan's Roast Beef and Mustard:

Brannigan's Roast Beef and Mustard crisps brought a bold and distinctive flavour to the snack scene. Released in the 1980s, these crisps combined the savoury goodness of roast beef with a tangy mustard kick. Their rugged, thick-cut texture made for a satisfying crunch that set them apart from more traditional crisps, making them a memorable treat for those who appreciated their unique taste.


3. Smiths Scampi Fries:

Smiths Scampi Fries were a quirky snack that offered a taste of the seaside (and you can still find them in many seaside pubs today). These little nibbles featured a zesty scampi and lemon flavour that transported kids to coastal adventures. Their light and airy texture, coupled with an unexpected seafood twist, made them a favourite among those looking for something a bit out of the ordinary.


4. Golden Wonder Ringos:

Golden Wonder Ringos were known for their distinctive ring shape, which made them stand out on store shelves. These crisps offered a satisfyingly crunchy texture and a wide range of flavours, from salt and vinegar to beef and onion. Their unique shape and delicious taste made them a beloved choice among adventurous young snack enthusiasts.


5. Space Raiders:

Space Raiders crisps, introduced by KP Snacks in the 1980s, were not only beloved for their unique flavour but also for their affordability. Priced at just 10p a packet at some outlets (when they were first released), these crisps quickly became a favourite among kids looking for a tasty snack that wouldn't break the bank. The affordability of Space Raiders made them a staple in school lunchboxes and a go-to choice for pocket money purchases!
