I remember these crisps fondly from my childhood, does anyone else remember potato puffs and are they still available?
I have looked online with no luck, and have never saw them in any of the major supermarkets which is where I used to buy them.
If I remember correctly it was usually a multi-pack of 6 that I would buy, though single packets were also available.
The nearest equivalent is Hula Hoops Puft. Similar to the old puffs. I used to love them.
The beef ones were the best ever. I need them back in my life.
When I was in primary school they sold potato puffs in the tuck shop and I would buy 3 packets every day. I wonder why they stopped making them as I am sure they would still be popular today.
I heard that Burtons stopped focusing on crisps and were more focused on biscuits hence why they stopped making potato puffs.
I too bemoan the loss of these, they were my favourite as a kid and I remember them fondly, sad sad day when they stopped making them. Hula hoops come no where near
I think if we could get enough people asking to bring them back, they just might do.
Don't know how but I'll sign.
I always preferred the ready salted.
They were the only crisps I liked....
So sad 😞
Cheese "n" Onion Puffs were the ones for me along with Dundee biscuits, how i long for their return !!
We need Burtons potato puffs back on the market.
Please remake them or can i buy them on line
I so used to love me and my mum (may she rest in peace) both used to love the beef flavour, mum used to crush them up and poor them in haha plz bring them back
I too have searched for them. I am so old that they only had the plain ones when I was growing up. Never had any of the flavors you mention. I left for the USA in late 70's but everytime I went home I would make sure mam had them waiting for me (along with a malt loaf and a battenburg....
I was trying to describe them to a friend last night, hard to do!! Made me want them even more ...so sad. Maybe we all should write to a current chip maker and ask them to try re-create them.
