People Can't Believe Fortnum & Mason Is Selling A 500g Tub Of Crisps For £25

When it comes to snacks, it's hard to top a salty packet of crisps for our favourite option. They're cheap, keep you satisfied, and usually have a huge number of flavours to choose from.

In one of the strangest developments of 2021, the luxury department store Fortnum & Mason has decided to enter the crisps market - and their crisps definitely aren't cheap compared to the competition.

Fortnum & Mason is selling a tub of vegan crisps for £25 and people can't believe their eyes. In fact, some shocked shoppers said the crisps must be "magical" to warrant such a high price compared to your standard Walkers crisps for £1.50.

For those of us who want to go the extra mile with their crisps, the Bonilla a La Vista Patatas Fritas Crisp are packaged in a tin.

The crisps only come in ready salted flavour. However, the Fortnum & Mason website promises that they are “like none you have ever tasted before” and “will keep you coming back for more.”

The website also gives us a bit of info about the crisps’ backstory. They have been produced in Spain for over 80 years and are officially “gourmet snacks.”

The pricey snacks are perfect for picnics, parties or a simple afternoon snack, according to a listing on the website, and can be shared with friends alongside delicious dips such as spicy salsa or hummus.

We wouldn’t judge if you kept them all to yourself for that price.

After food blogger @kevssnackreviews posted the crisps on their page, people flocked to the comments section to discuss the latest addition to the crisps market.

“Are they magical crisps?!” one Instagram user quipped.

Another commenter said: “Do we really need a tin opener for crisps?”

One user said: “Wow expensive. Hope they can do the washing up too!?"

While a third person defended the crisps. “These are fried in pure olive oil so that could be one reason for the high price.”
