The crisps cost £1 for a multipack of five and are available at Tesco, with part of the proceeds going towards Comic Relief.

They have all the flavours in a traditional mince pie – including sugar, fructose, salt, and fruit powder.

Writing on Twitter, one fan said: ‘Bravo for the truly delectable Mince Pie flavour. It shouldn’t work and they should be an abomination but it actually really does and they’re not!’

However, others were less than optimistic – with some branding them ‘gross’ and ‘criminal’ and ‘wrong’.

‘They are quite certainly the most disgusting thing I have ever had in my mouth,’ said one.

‘These are vile and just plain wrong,’ added another.

‘The limited edition Roast Potato crisps are nice but they do taste very similar to your regular Roast Chicken flavour, perhaps a slightly more subtle flavour,’ said one.  

‘Well @walkers_crisps you can’t fool me. Your new Roast Potato crisps are 100% just Roast Chicken crisps in a different bag,’ added another.  

‘Potato crisps that taste of roast potato, whatever next? Milk flavoured milkshakes?’ commented one.
