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!

    I remember Chipmunk Oxo crisps - from my junior school in Billericay in the mid 60s. I loved them.

    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.
