With crisp behemoth Walkers slowly buying up every other major crisp manufacturer they can lay their hands on, it was inevitable there would be some casualties. There may be other tube like crisps available, such as the ever popular Hula Hoops or Wheat Crunchies, but the Crispy Tube had a very light, delicate texture these other crisps lack. In fact, perhaps that was how they made them, by taking Square Crisps and rolling them up somehow before cooking them? Originally only available in ready salted flavour and they were pretty salty too, as I remember , they were eventually joined by a salt and vinegar variety which were similarly intense in their vinegariness.
