Tesco's latest release could see them win the war for weirdest Christmas crisp flavour

Tesco are well known for creating exciting seasonal flavours for their own brand crisps, but their latest offering might be their weirdest yet.

Published: October 9, 2017

Rightly hailed for their usual Christmas release - Pigs in Blankets flavoured crisps - this winter's limited edition flavour has left many feeling a little perplexed.

This year, they will be selling candy cane flavoured crisps; essentially, a savoury snack that tastes like peppermint.
