When I was a child I remember occasionally being treated to a bag of crisps, or chips as we called them. The brand I really remember from back then is Chipmunk Crisps. We used to eagerly buy these from “Baker Bill” who drove the Mothers Pride van selling bread door to door.
I haven’t seen or heard of Chipmunk potato crisps for years. I wondered what had happened to them, or even if I had imagined them. An online search proved I wasn’t the only one being nostalgic about this savoury snack. For example they are waxing lyrical about Oxo flavour Chipmunk crisps on the Do You Remember website from which I ‘borrowed’ my pack image.
I did see on suggestion that Chipmunk potato chips were made by the same company that owned the maker of Oxo cubes. If true it would explain how they got to produce that particular flavour. I have no idea if that is correct or what happened to the Chipmunk brand. If anyone can throw any further light on this, or wants to share any other crisp related memories please do so below.
