Burger Rings are a burger flavoured Australian and New Zealand snack food distributed by the Twisties corporation but owned by its parent company The Smith's Snackfood Company (which, in turn is owned by PepsiCo) in Australia and Bluebird Foods Limited in New Zealand.
These iconic snacks emerged in 1974.
In Australia, Burger Rings are available in 30 gram, 50 gram, 90 gram, 100 gram, 180 gram, 200 gram bags, and 15-pack multipack. In New Zealand, they are available in 30 gram, 130 gram bags, and 108 gram 6-pack multipack.
A memorable advertisement for the product was aired on Australian TV in the 1980s with a Star Wars theme. It featured a faux Luke Skywalker character on Tatooine. He got out of his Landspeeder to be confronted by a large group of Jawas asking for his Burger Rings. He begrudgingly shares them only to be left with a single Burger Ring. A Jawa swiftly grabs that last one and the ad ends.
A radio ad campaign in the 80's joked that Burger Rings were possibly made of rubber tyres along with the catch-phrase 'they taste good but!'.
