If they are called French Fries Taytos why not email Tayto and ask whether or not they are still in production?

I know the ones you're talking about, but I could never recall who made them.
I've not seen them in a few years to be honest, I loved them.

They were as you say, chipstick shaped, bacon type taste, blue packet with a bit of see-thru at the front, with a guy & girl and it used to say 'ooh la la' on it.

I miss them.

nope, they're a much harder crisp & different texture, I'd think them quite different myself

Mini Chips by KP.



Calling all crisps Taytos is wrong.

They're another completely different crisp, thin hard sticks, S&V flavour, quite nice though.

The French Fries the OP is on about I think have long been out of production, they were similar in texture to chipsticks, thicker like them, but a bacon type flavour.

Do you mean these by any chance?


I emailed Tayto like a week or so ago, still no word back. (Asking if they did produce them once upon a time).

Upon reflection, maybe King made these... I've mailed them now too.

Tayto didn't make them.
