Yep, I do!

They were called Walkers Looney Tunes Cartoon Picture Crisps (bit of a mouthful there).

Still got the promotional poster for some reason. Just one of those things I've held onto since 1993...

Sorry if it's been mentioned but sweetcorn relish Skips were amazing.

As were regular Skips. They taste a bit cardboardy now.

For me it had to be 'Piglets' 'Fish n Chips' & 'Chicken & Chips' although technically not crisps

Sighted and promptly bought in ASDA today! :shock:

Still by Burton's and still taste exactly the same :D

Apparently there are only 500 stores in the country stocking them at the moment and I luckily happen to live near such a store (Tamworth). The Chicken 'n Chips ones aren't back yet but the shelves of Fish 'n Chips were completely gutted so hopefully they sell well enough for the other flavours to return...

Will have to investigate, I know I won't get them my way, so some travelling may be required.

I got some in our Asda as well - top stuff, dripping with flavouring unlike most crisps these days.

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

- Doritos 3D
- Bugles
- Walkers (bacon flavour) footballs
- Red Mill Cheese Straws (like chipsticks but cheese flavour...don't seem to exist under the current Golden Wonder ownership)

The top 3 in particular were a criminal offence to remove from sale.
