Being pedantic - they're not really from the past as you can still get them all.

Now Fish & Chips in those little packets - where have they gone, eh?

Whatever happened to Krunchie Puffs (no, YOU'RE a puff, etc)? A bargainous 5p for a small packet of pure vinegar flavoured corn. I think there were other flavours (and other similar brands), but the salt and vinegar flavour was king. Probably banned for being toxic, or something.

Also, until the Wikipedia entry put on that they existed - but is still sceptical with its 'citation needed' - I thought I was the only person in the world that could remember salt and vinegar Monster Munch. While not quite as good as pickled onion, they were amazing.

I remember ice cream flavour Monster Munch was out for a short while:

And there was also some disgusting apple-flavoured crisps, and cheesy popcorn crisps. Still, anything's worth a try!

Tried the ice cream ones once - all kinds of wrong. Sugary crisps that turn your tongue blue?

Savoury Beef Doritos, I can't even find a picture of them.
I think they stopped making them due to Mad cows or foot and mouth.

Brannigans 'traditional' crisps, smoked ham and pickle, roast beef and mustard etc. You can still buy them on ebay, worryingly.
