Tesco posts first trading profit slump in 18 years

Tesco, the UK's biggest supermarket, has launched its festival snack selection, the Crispas Dinner Collection, meant to capture the consumer delight. The complete meal selection is made of crisps and is available in different flavours.

Tesco says the crisps are hand-cooked in high oleic sunflower oil, and contain no artificial flavours, colours or MSG. The company is offering different flavours for starters, mains and desserts.

For starters, the crisps are available in Wensleydale & Cranberry cheese or spiced gammon flavours. For mains, it is roast turkey and stuffing with onion gravy flavour. The dessert is sweet crisps of mince pie flavour which are seasoned with dried fruit, spices and buttery pastry.

The crisps are inspired by Michelin-starred gourmet chef Hans Van Wolde, and are made in Devon from the Hermes variety of potatoes which are grown in Cornwall and Hampshire.

Tesco has priced each 150g packet at £1.39. The crisp selection is aimed at the growing hand cooked premium crisp market which has risen by 20 per cent in the last year.
