Co-op's Selling Cauliflower Cheese Crisps For Christmas And We Don’t Know What To Think

Co-op's Christmas dinner crisp flavours are sure to spark a fiery debate...

It might be October, but we're already planning what we're going to be stuffing the cupboards with this Christmas.

Did we say the cupboards? We meant out gobs...

And while M & S, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Lidl have all released sneak peaks at their delicious Christmas treats already, our eyes were instantly drawn to Co-op's Christmas dinner inspired crisp collection, which includes some very eclectic flavours.

Psst...We have exciting news to share about the future of Pretty 52


Shoppers can expect to find a pigs in blanket flavour, spiced honey carrot and parsnip vegetable crips and even crisps which promise to taste like roast potatoes (aren't all crisps potato flavoured?!)...

But the crisp flavour that's got everyone talking is their Cornish Cheddar cauliflower cheese infused batch.

While we were sold at the mere mention of the word cheese, some others were slightly less enthusiastic about the popular side dish being made into a crisp flavour.

Sharing a snap of a packet while in his local Co-op, Take Me Out host Paddy McGuinness fumed: "Cauliflower? Crisps? Together in my mouth? Not on my watch!!! #wrongcrispflavours".

Fans then flocked to both agree and disagree with Paddy in their droves, proving that the new festive flavour will certainly be a conversation starter this Christmas.

"Damn right Paddy! Just wrong," one wrote.

As another agreed: "There are some right psychos about ! Who would even considering doing such evil?"

However a third was more keen on the idea, gushing: "OMG I want some".

Explaining the idea behind the quirky snack, Lucy Frodsham, senior product developer at Co-op, said: "Cauliflower Cheese is one of those classic Christmas dinner sides that gets everyone excited for the big day, so we knew combining it with one of Britain's favourite snacks would make our Irresistible Cauliflower Cheese Crisps a hit with shoppers.

Cauliflower Cheese is a staple for many at Christmas

"Seasoned with real cauliflower and indulgent Cornish Cheddar, these hand-cooked snacks are perfect for sharing and are sure to be a seasonal staple at parties and get-togethers this festive period."

All of Co-op's festive crisps come in packs of 150g, and are for sale in store for just £1.70.

At that price, we think we'll try em all.
