Anyone remember Chipmunk Crisps?

      10 Comments on Anyone remember Chipmunk Crisps?

When I was a child I remember occasionally being treated to a bag of crisps, or chips as we called them. The brand I really remember from back then is Chipmunk Crisps which we used to buy from “Baker Bill” who drove the Mothers Pride van selling bread door to door.

I haven’t seen or heard of Chipmunk potato crisps for years. I wondered what had happened to them, or even if I had imagined them. A search proved I wasn’t the only one being nostalgic about them.

I’ve nicked the picture from the Do You Remember website.

    When I was at my primary school Chipmunk crisps were sold at break-time. I remember thinking they were really good; but they were not sold in the local shops.

    They were the best tasting crisps ever and trying to explain to the younguns bout them is a giggle but wish they were still available. Who made them. Any idea?

    In the 70s I used to eat extra large bags of Chipmunk crisps at every Man Utd home game. With a polystyrene cup of beef tea ( not a brand) it made the relegation in 74 slightly more tolerable.

    In 1971 while in infant school my, mam used to give me 5p tuck money, this got me 2 packets of chipmunk crisps and with the penny change i would get 3 jelly snakes and in those days the jelly snakes were atleast a foot long.

    I’ve just eaten a packet of Burts Guinness crisps and I thought I’d gone back in time. They are the closest thing to Chipmunk oxo flavour crisps I’ve tasted. They even smell the same !
