Where can I buy potato puffs?

Sadly after thorough research it looks like Potato Puffs are no longer being made, oh how I wish I was wrong! I could be…

I grew up on these crisps as a kid (dont worry, I was not neglected), I can only ever remember there being 3 flavours, ready salted, salt & vinegar and cheese & onion, but it looks like they also had a Beef flavour too, and maybe others also.

I found one website who were claiming to sell cheese & onion for just 10p a packet, but the website looks very dodgy indeed, the add to cart feature does not even work and it looks like what once was a website has been abandoned, so I will not be recommending that link to anyone.

From what I remember these crisps were a little oily, and they appeared like someone had crushed the whole packet, loads of delicious little individual flakes.

Some people online are claiming that local corner shops where they are from are still selling these, but mines certainly does not. I would imagine however if corner shops were selling them, we would have at least found someone selling them online, even on eBay, but nothing listed on their either!

So for now anyway, the where can I buy potato puffs saga continues. If you do happen to know anywhere please let us know.

Lidl in Germany sell a very similar tasting product called Bull Heads potato snacks. They are by Funny Frisch and taste similar to the cheese and tomato flavour puffs Burton's used to make. I have written to Lidl to ask if they intend to stock them in their UK branches. Waiting on a reply

I had a passion for these and am devastated that they vanished without trace. The nearest to the flavour (although not the texture) are Chipster in a big red box which I buy on the Continent. I remember that a whole Potato Puff was like a bubble of potato and yes, as the poster here states, they did get crushed easily and one often ended up eating the flakes. I just liked the plain ones. They were a pure playground joy. Wish someone would take the recipe and make them again.

I wish the company would just make them, why is it they stop things that people enjoy, of course we don\'t know the bottom line, maybe they never sold enough to make it worthwhile. For anyone interested, my current favourite crisps are Kettle chips (all flavours). They are more expensive than normal but very addictive and you can tell they use quality potatoes. Try the mature cheddar and red onion (a yellow packet) as this is my favourite out of them all.
