Ahh, potato smileys - the great hangover liberator, paired exquisitely with spaghetti hoops and sausages.

They've comforted us in many times of need with their crispy outsides, fluffy mash centre and cheery, grinning shape. You can't not love 'em.

We thought they couldn't be improved upon, that was until we heard about unicorn smileys.

McCain has reimagined the humble potato smiley. (

Yes, McCain's has crafted a new magical version of the comfort food favourite, but this time in the shape of our favourite mythical creatures.

Costing just £1 for a 454g pack, Unicorn Potato Shapes are being stocked exclusively in Iceland.

The unicorns are made with real potatoes and can be cooked from frozen pretty quickly, something Iceland say is "great for busy parents."

The bites come in a colourful yellow packet decorated with illustrations of unicorns, rainbows and smiley-faced clouds - meaning the packaging is half the fun.


According to the instructions, the delicious carb treats should be spread evenly over a baking tray and placed in an oven pre-heated to 220C. Cook for 14 to 16 minutes, turning over now and then, until they're crisp and light golden.


Last month, the supermarket famed for its frozen goods announced it was launching a Detroit Cheeseburger Pizza, which merges the Italian and American exports into one tasty oven cook.

The pizza is topped with all the good parts of a burger, including spicy minced beef, gherkins, onions, mozzarella and cheddar cheese. It's carbs squared and our hangover already appreciates it.

What's more, it comes with a sachet of Burger Sauce Drizzle to really make it feel like you're chowing down on a burg. If we close our eyes, we're not sure we'd be able to tell.

Thank you, Iceland.
