You can still get fish n chips, they come in a red bag now. I've seen them in newsagents I'm sure. I used to love the potato puffs but they were sharp and used to slice your mouth up! Good old days before health and safety madness haha!

i used to like the beef ones. i had some crisp the other day and the flavour was similiar so it reminded me of them so thought id see if they was still possible to get them anywhere. dont think i ever actually bought them from a shop used to get them from the ice cream van hah

ye just thought it was those that you meant. trying to have a look for em on ggogle but cant find any pics just few people asking about em so cant rememeber what they were like
Puffs were fantastic!

I fondly used to remember the conversations in the playground:

"You're eating Puffs! You're a Puff!"
"I don't really know what that is, they're really nice crisps though"
"You're a Puff! Hahahaha!"

I imagine that their unfortunate name probably contributed to their demise, which was a shame because they were really nice - especially the beef ones. They should just relaunch them with a different name - "Gangsta Tubes" or something.

Chipsticks are still available, a fact which I partially attribute to their projectile abilities. As a child you could really hurt someone with a Chipstick, not so a Puff.

This thread reminds me of when they brought back Roast Beef Monster Munch and I was so excited that I bought a box from the newsagents at a discount price and carried it home on the bus.
