What does SKIPS mean?
- Skips are a tapioca snack from the United Kingdom and Ireland; which were first launched in 1974 as prawn cocktail. The snacks are made by KP Snacks made under license from Meiji Seika Japan. Skips are similar to Chinese prawn crackers, although they are smaller and have a finer texture that makes them fizz and 'melt' on the tongue. Today they are available with bacon and cheese flavours in addition to the traditional prawn cocktail. Other flavours, such as pickled onion, Caribbean Spice curry, Hot from Rio chilli, Chinese spare rib, a Limited edition ReBoot Dots Doughnut, and a Sweetcorn & Relish have been available in the past. Since early 2006, Skips have seen a 30% reduction in saturated fat and a 10% reduction in sodium and are made with 100% sunflower oil. Skips contain no artificial colours or flavourings, and have fewer than 100 calories. Packets of skips often have jokes written on the back, which are meant to be humorous to children.
