Chipmunk OXO Crisps

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

We used to go down Barry Baths in the 70's, have a swim in the very cold open air pool and afterwards always had to have a packet of Chipmunk OXO crisps.They were delicious.

Do You Remember Chipmunk OXO Crisps?

    Do I remember OXO crisps? Not arf! Weekly visits to Stow Hill Baths in Newport always culminated in a visit to what was called 'the Buffet' (cafe to you and me). We always bought a packet of the scrummiest crisps ever created -Chipmunk OXO. Nothing has EVER bettered Chipmunk OXO crisps. Nothing....not Bovril, not Walkers Marmite even, not any beefy crisps. Have I got the message across? Chipmunk OXO were the very best - together, of course with a mug of steaming hot OXO. Wow. I can still savour that heady blend of OXO crisps, hot OXO drink and chlorine in the air! It seems like yesterday but it must be 50 years ago. Lovely stuff! Never forgotten. Should campaign for a come-back. Come on Walkers! You could do it!

    I have some very fond memories of Chipmunk Oxo crisps. In the 60s we sometimes went to Norwich indoor swimming pool (I come from Gt. Yarmouth, where the pool was uncovered, unheated, and absolutely freezing). You could buy Oxo flavoured crisps from the vending machine there. The only flavours generally available at the time were plain and cheese and onion. I felt kind of privileged to eat something that few others had enjoyed.

    I used to buy Chipmunk OXO crisps from The Red Spider Cafe in Whitstable, Kent. A small cafe on the beach. We would swim and then buy the crisps and maybe a choc ice.

    I remember these. Being taken to the cinema - a packet of oxo crisps and a Kia- ora orange drink. Those were the days.

    My old school tuck shop sold Chipmunk Oxo crisps back in the 60's and now nearly every forum seems to voice the same thing "Bring back Oxo flavour crisps"

    I used to go to Watford swimming baths late 60's and also looked forward to having a packet of chipmunk oxo crisps. In fact it was the best thing about going swimming

      I used to go to Watford swimming baths around the same time with my older brother, John. We always finished up with several packets of Chipmunk oxo crisps with a cup of Horlicks--a winning combination for sure. I miss oxo crisps :(
