    Possibly my favourite snack ever. I used to get them from the school tuck shop, so a big part of my heritage.

    I've not seen them for years so assumed they were no longer available.

    Doh! *smacks forehead*
    I didn't realise it was a 4 year old thread until you mentioned it. I got truly optimistic about the Puffs revival, and was even beginning to hope that someone would remember the crisps called 'Bones', I really liked the salt n vinegar ones.

    Disappointment doesn't even begin to describe how deflated I feel now.... damn you Google!

    I loved these. They were like little pillows of fat and salt! LOL

    My other favourite crisps looked a bit like a cross between shreddies and wicker baskets. Does anyone know what they were called and if you can still get them? They were called something like wickers???

    I do remember beef flavoured crisps called footballs crazies that were (believe it or not) in the shape of footballs. They were great!!! Absolutely love mini chips but I can only ever find them in Canada.

    p.s I also remember "tubes".
