Does anyone remember the chipstick style crisps? they were orange in colour with a distinctive but undiscribbable taste, and you just couldn't eat one packet, very addictive

I loved Cheesy Straws SO much - I could eat 4 packets in 1 sitting, something I would never do with todays crisps. They were my after school treat in the 80's along with a Wispa and a 'Mandy' comic!! They are the stuff of legend and would love to see them return!

We used to get the from a van that used to come round the doors selling fruit and veg and other stuff. We called it the "Hooter Van" cause it used to pull into the street and hoot its horn and everyone came running! Savoury Straws were legend but they just disapeared!!!

It wasn't Smith's that made them, it was a company called C.D.C, If I remember correctly. But aye, they were awesome crisps, especially the cheese ones...SOMEONE PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!!

Tudor Crisps made them, the spicy ones in a maroon packet and the cheesy in a yellow/orange one. After Walkers took over they stopped making them, presumably because of the French Fries brand but Savoury Straws were far superior.

Savoury Straws are back! Well, sort of, anyway... I was recently in Boston and we picked up a bag of "Andy Capp's" crisps, the Cheddar Straws brand, and they're the same sort of taste and texture as the old 80s UK 'Savoury Straws'. If they aren't the same, then they're certainly VERY similar to the old-style Savoury Straws. Try them.

Glad I'm not the only one to remember. CDC Crisps Scotland in an orange bag and very cheesy.
