Top 10 peculiar Prosecco products

5. Crisps

2015 witnessed what was described by The Metro as “the arms race of posh Christmas nibbles.”

Marks and Spencer famously released its pale pink ‘Fizz & Sparkle Winter Berries and Prosecco Hand Cooked Crisps’ complete with edible gold stars. At £2 a pop, the boozy snack nabbed the top-spot in Buzzfeed’s ‘24 middle-class crisps that went way, way too far.’

The Telegraph was not impressed, awarding the crisps just a half mark out of a possible five, commenting that “the fizzing sensation in the mouth was disconcerting” and that the Prosecco flavour was not there.

Not to be outdone, Tesco released its ‘Prosecco and Elderberry’ crisps as part of its Finest range. Reputed to taste of “sweet, delicately fragrant elderberry with the festive fizz of Prosecco,” Tesco’s offering undercut M&S by 41p.

Unsurprisingly, they were also subjected to Twitter trolling with one user commenting “go home Tesco, you’re drunk.”
