Christmas Pudding and Brandy Butter Crisps

Christmas Pudding & Brandy Butter
Roast Norfolk Turkey & Stuffing with Onion Gravy
Whilst on a routine supermarket shop I happened to notice these. Tesco Finest Handcooked  Crisps - Christmas Pudding & Brandy Butter flavour. I'd not encountered a sweet crisp before and struggled to imagine how it would taste, so picked a packet to sample.

Before pudding I decided to have a main course of Tesco Finest Handcooked Crisps - Roast Norfolk Turkey & Stuffing with Onion Gravy. These were perfectly nice crisps and nothing remarkable. If you've had chicken flavour crisps before, then this would be no leap.

Onward to dessert then. The wording on the packet states "The sweet seasonal flavours of rich dried fruit and spices complemented perfectly with creamy brandy butter".

On opening the packet my first indication that this was something different was the distinctly blackened colour to the potato slices. With no artificial colourings or flavourings, I eagerly selected one of the darkest snacks coated in the salty mix of fruit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves.

Honestly, the sensation was unusual. It was kind of like eating Christmas Pudding with a mouthful of crisps. It didn't work. I still hold the opinion that crisps should be savoury. I haven't bought a second bag.
