Skips are a childhood lunchbox favourite for many of us, but is the iconic crisp vegan? Find out here.

What are Skips?

If you need a refresher, Skips are a prawn-flavoured crisp that is popular in the UK and Ireland, having been produced since the 1970s. They are reminiscent of prawn crackers, however texturally are distinct from other crisps as they fizz and melt in your mouth. 

Are Skips vegan?

Despite the prawn flavouring, Skips are indeed vegan! Skips are commonly regarded as an ‘accidentally vegan food’, using plant-based flavourings, tapioca and maize to create the distinct crisp. 

Where can I buy Skips?

Skips can be found in all major supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsburys, as well as local shops and newsagents. The snack is a popular treat so you won’t have any trouble trying to find it.
