Tudor Crisps

Tudor crisps

Tudor Crisps was founded in Sunderland in 1947. They moved to Newcastle in 1961 when the brand was acquired by Smiths Crisps.

Tudor became known for its unusual (at the time) choice of flavours including Tomato Ketchup, Hot Dog & Mustard, And Pickled Onion.

Tudor’s packets were colour-coded: Cheese & Onion sold in blue packets, Beef Barbecue in brown, Tomato Sauce in red.

During the 1970s, sales of Tudor crisps soared thanks to the company’s memorable advertising campaign. It featured a paper boy, bribed with a “canny bag of Tudor” to deliver papers to a Gateshead tower block.

Those adverts were re-referenced in the 1980s, with the now adult paperboy returning in a Rolls Royce and eating a bag of Tudor Specials.

The Tudor brand was phased out in 2003, along with Smiths crisps, now both part of Walkers Crisps.

As Tudor no longer exists, we haven’t been able to verify all of these flavours. The unverified ones are in italic. We’d love to hear about the flavours from former Tudor Crisp eaters!
