Who doesn’t love an exotic crisp flavour?
The following flavours have already been tried and tested: Firecracker Lobster, Worcester Sauce & Sundried Tomato, Haggis & Cracked Pepper or a more basic Sweet Cured Ham & Pickle.
These potentially unappetising flavours would certainly make you curious. However, Tesco have worked their magic and have released a new flavour which really does put all of the above to their limits. Actually, we really think it may be a mistake.
Attempting to be the next trending Christmas food item, Tesco’s have officially released ‘Candy Cane’ flavoured crisps to their Finest range.
Something sounds seriously wrong with this right?
Tesco said this about their risky creation:
“Hand cooked crisps seasoned and dusted with a sweet peppermint flavouring for a sweet and salty taste experience.”
We all love something sweet and satisfying, but we don’t quite thing these crisps will be that simple. It’s really going to be difficult to beat some strong contenders such as the Walkers original range.
Peppermint on a crisp however, have they gone mad?
These almost sound as bad as some of those weird Easter creations such the Marmite egg or one of those cheese Christmas calendars. What is the world coming to? Maybe ideas are running short.
Christmas may be coming up, but that doesn’t mean you can just bring out ridiculous festive foods willy nilly. Surely this needs to be regulated?
Twitter had some interesting things to say about this creation:
Just seen Tesco are selling Candy Cane flavoured crisps. I stood by them on curry and pigs in blankets flavours, but I can't defend that.

We all love novelty food, but this may potentially be a publicity stunt which they are certainly using to their advantage. They fully well know people will all be buying them in an attempt to hopefully enjoy them.
Stand strong, we advise that you really don’t try these crips. You may regret it.
Try them at your own risk.
