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.

What do you think of these fancy alcohol-flavoured crisps? Let us know in the comments below.
