Police officer is concerned about gin and tonic crisps, but nobody else is
If you're partial to a gin and tonic you can now have it in a rather crunchier form than normal, by grabbing yourself a bag of Aldi’s new gourmet, hand-cooked gin and tonic flavoured crisps.
Exciting, huh? Well, not for everyone. PC McNaney, a police officer from Durham's Alcohol Harm Reduction Unit, has made her concerns over these crisps public by asking on Twitter, "what message does this give to children?"
Predictably few on Twitter shared her view.
Let's face it — it's highly unlikely anyone wanting to get drunk is going to buy these crisps when Aldi has a whole aisle of the hard stuff.
In other alcohol-flavoured-potato-snack-related news, just a fortnight ago Tesco launched its prosecco and elderberry flavoured crisps.
However Marks & Spencer has to be declared the reigning posh/boozy crisp champion. Their winter berries and processo hand-cooked crisps even come with edible gold stars.
