Hula Hoops

Hula Hoops are a potato-based snack product, in the shape of short, hollow cylinders.They were first introduced in 1973. Hula Hoops come in a few standard flavours, in their own coloured packets, such as Salt and Vinegar (blue), Barbecue Beef (brown), Original/Ready Salted (red), Cheese and Onion (green). They are produced by KP Snacks. In the UK there is now a new variety made with corn, called 'Hula Hoops Tortilla', which come in Cool Original, Chilli Salsa and Nacho Cheese flavours.

Description

Known as a British snack food, Hula Hoops are 3D golden/brown hoops ranging in size, and sometimes even taste. An average bag contains around 25–30 hoops with the main ingredients being potato, sunflower oil, rice flour and salt.

The original Hula Hoops come in a small 25g foil pack. The front of it is light to medium red, with a picture of a large mustard hoop, which covers three quarters of the pack, with the words, ‘HULA HOOPS’, inside the hoop. Underneath it says, ‘original’, then, ‘potato rings’.
