    Discos obviously passed me by. I don't even remember my children eating them. They used to eat Hula-Hoops a lot, mainly because they were always on offer at Sainsbury's.

    What were those other crisps, that were shaped like chips, and were mainly salt 'n vinegar flavour? Chipsticks. They used to eat those a lot, too.

    Discos only came out in 1979 so that would explain why.

    It wouldn't explain why my children never ate them though. Maybe they were never on offer at Sainsbury's.

    maybe they did. You can't have been watching them all the time. I doubt my father would have had a clue as to what crisps we'd been eating.

    Well, as my old man owned two chippies, I had access to pretty much every kind of crisps you could imagine, as well as sweets, lollies and ice-cream - all for nowt. You could get bored with it after a while, though! My fav was ice-cold 'jubilees' in the summer, either cola or orange - or lime-flavoured 'ice poles'!!

    Used to make a nice profit selling crisps and sweets to my mates in school though, and which undercut the 'tuck shop', then ciggies came into the equation later, which was a really nice little earner...

    I guess that was the start of my entrepreneurial adventures...

    These are some of my favourite crisps from back in the day...










    Tudor (the undisputed king of crisps) used to also do a curry flavour, which were outstanding (as I love strong tastes), but I can't find any suitable images.

    Obviously they may have done, but I never noticed any empty Disco packets as opposed to the many empty Hula-Hoops, Skips, Monster Munch, Space Raiders and Quaver packets in the rubbish.

    Interesting that, Hula-Hoops aside, none of those contain any potatoes!

    Was never really into the processed 'puffy' stuff, posing as 'crisps'. I preferred (still do) the real thing. The original Smiths 'Salt & Shake' were legendary:
