It’s Merry Crispness as Tesco launches complete festive meal selection in crisp flavours
23 Nov 2018
It’s been nicknamed the ‘Crispmas Dinner collection’ and it’s one of the most unusual snack selections ever launched for the festive season – a complete Christmas dinner in crisps.
Crisp lovers will be able to treat themselves to a selection of starters, mains and desserts based on typical Christmas favourite foods and flavours.
To start there’s Pigs in Blanket or Lightly Salted Christmas Tree crisps; then there’s Christmas dinner in the form of Turkey and Stuffing.
And for dessert there’s Salted Caramel and Cocoa Tortilla rolls with a final course of Roquefort and Chestnut or Camembert and Rosemary crisps.
The extra limited edition flavours should be seen as great news to the UKs growing number of crisp and snack fans.
In the last year demand for crisps and snacks like popcorn have jumped by more than five per cent, with Brits buying more than 2 billion packets. And last Christmas Tesco saw a 20 per cent rise in demand for festive flavoured crisps.
Tesco crisps buyer Michael Williment said:
“These limited edition crisps have been launched with the festive party season in mind and we think people will be able to have a lot of fun with them.
“We reckon these crisps will be a hit with anyone who loves Christmas dinner and wants a sneak taste of the seasonal feast ahead of the big day.
“For our own label crisps we worked with some of the UK’s top crisp makers and have selected premium grade potatoes and carefully selected seasonings to make sure they taste as special as you’d expect of the grandest meal of the year.
“Whatever your crisp needs this Christmas, Tesco has got it covered.”
Hand cooking in small batches ensures an even, golden colour and delicious crunch. The crisps are made with no artificial flavours, colours or MSG.
