Chipmunk Crisps

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Does anyone remember Chipmunk Crisps in the late 1960's and early 1970's ? When I was around eight years old I had a friend whose Uncle owned a Wholesale Warehouse selling food to shops. We both got a promotional cuddly Chipmunk from the crisps and I've still got him!

    Chipmunk crisps were made in Long Buckby .I was one of a team who installed the first microwave oven to replace the original conventional boiling oil unit. I believe this was first time this had been done.The power used was 25k/w,a bit more than a domestic unit .The oven was about50 ft long with a conveyor belt end to end.The raw, oil coated cut crisps were fed in at one end ,cooked on way through and flavoured at the exit end. The output could be up to a ton per hour.I am not aware if this process has been repeated elsewhere.

    Ah... Chipmunk crisps. I always got some as a treat from the Minories garage in Jesmond that we called at on the way home from a trip somewhere. Wonderful, strong, beefy flavour. This was in the 1960s. Closest thing now are the beef Seabrooks.

    Who made the chipmunk crisps? I adored them. My mother worked in a little corner shop and i used to be banished upstairs when i was off school surrounded by these boxes. I ended up robbing the things. Lovely crisps. The only thing i can compare them to is quavers. Sort of.
