Skips Crisps

Crisps or corn snacks created by KP (Kenyon Produce) [a division of McVitie's and Jacob's; all three a division of United Biscuits] that resemble seashells and melt on the tongue.

Skips were first launched in 1974 under the description of Shrimp cocktail flavour but this was not persuading enough, so the name was changed.

The classic flavour that has been available the longest are Prawn Cocktail (yellow bag); three exotic flavours were available in the early 90s - Hot from Rio Chili (orange bag), Caribbean Spice Curry (teal blue bag) and Chinese Spare Rib (purple bag) but these three flavours have unfortunately been discontinued some time ago. They are still a big seller to date and come in range of other flavours.

    They also did Dot's Doughnut flavour in the 90's. No one else seems to remember them. They were disgusting. Lol.

    Wooo, id forgoten all about the flavours they did in the 90's, both the chilli and curry were top dollar... the chinese were a bit yack, bland a and dry. Throwing it back to the 80's, the best flavour they ever did.... sweetcorn relish:) Didn't they do a tomato flavour at some point... it's in the head, but i can't remember.
