Smax

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

Smax were oval savoury biscuit snacks similar to Fish'n'Chips. I think there may have been about three flavou;, chicken comes to mind but my faves were smoked bacon. I can just remember watching Top Of The Pops, sucking the flavour off the biscuit before chewing it. Aah to be six again!

    I remember back at school in the 80’s we could buy them for 5p from the tuck shop, sometimes kids walk round the playground with an open packet and ask you if you wanted a smax and if you said yes you’d get a “smack” round the face, I never did learn to say no.

    I loved smax as a kid and fish n chips. Girlfriend discovered the bacon oddities a while back. This week I went to tescos and next to the bacon flavour oddities was ...... chicken flavour, I got so excited, we road tested them last night, and they are like the the chicken flavour smax, both flavours were on special and you could get two packs for a pound each.

    I loved the Smokey Bacon Smax. They were fab. I have been searching for them for years even in the retro sweet shops but alas I have been unable to find any. If anyone does find where I can purchase one I would be grateful to hear from you.
