Have Tesco finally gone one step too far in their big to take crisp flavours to a whole new level?
Yes, seems to be the resounding answer to this question if you tune into the debate on Twitter.
It comes after they have been received a prolonged mocking on social media today for its new Finest crisps flavour – Prosecco and Elderberry.
The description on the packet says: “Sweet, delicately fragrant elderberry with the festive fizz of Prosecco.”

Earlier this year Marks and Spencer unveiled their Christmas fizz in crisp form with Winter Berries and Prosecco with Fizz and Sparkle.
The packet explains that they are “made using specially selected British potatoes, thinly sliced with their skins on and hand cooked in small batches to give a delicious and crispy snack”.
The crisps are apparently sprinkled with pink glitter designed to fizz on your tongue.
The releases come after British crisp flavours were revealed to be baffling foreign tourists because they are too fancy. Personally, a pack of Tayto Sensations are fancy enough for us.
And at least they promise to never ‘fizz on our tongue.’ Eugh. We have real-life Prosecco for that, thanks…
