Burton's Potato Puffs

Potato Puffs were a sort of crisp manufactured by Burton Biscuits. The came in varieties of Ready Salted, Cheese and Onion and Salt and Vinegar. I'm sure that they have gone out of production now but who knows... if enough people remember them and still want them, there could be a Potato Puff revival! You have missed out the best one of all, tomato sauce flavour. Great taste and red fingers lol, ate them every day from 1959 to 1963.

      Yes I very much remember Potato Puffs when I was at school, they were my favourite, much better than traditional crisps. I recall the token on the packet too, though I only remember plain flavoured in the red bag. I don't know when they disappeared but I would really love them back as long they were made exactly as they were then and not tampered with in any way.

    I remember them fondly and were always available either in the tuck shop or corner shop on the way to school. The beef flavour were my favourites and wish they would bring them back.
