The new halloumi crisps cost £1 (Picture: Co-op)Co-op has released a bag of halloumi fries crisps – so you can now eat your favourite side dish on the go.
The potato tube-shaped crisps feature the flavour of halloumi cheese, they also have a hint of chilli.
Oh, and the best news? They’re vegetarian.
The crisps cost £1 for a 100g bag and they’re currently limited edition.
According to Pretty52, the retailer wanted to jump on the halloumi trend and thought crisps were a great way to do so.
Ursula Artjoki, Co-op crisps, snacks and nuts developer, said: ‘We’ve seen halloumi fries pop-up on many a restaurant menu over the past year.
‘So, we wanted to put our Co-op spin on this trend and give our customers the chance to enjoy the popular flavour conveniently in a crisp offering.
‘Co-op Halloumi Fries are a really moreish crowd-pleaser that won’t last long once the bag gets opened.’
Co-op wanted to jump on the latest trend (Picture: Co-op)Halloumi fries aren’t the only new crisps on the shelves – Co-op has also released coconut and chargrilled pineapple tortilla chips, and aromatic crispy duck and hoisin crisps, both priced at £1.70.
Alongside this, they’ve also launched lamb kofta and halloumi flatbread crisps, again at £1.50 for a 150g bag.
Back to the cheese though, if you’re wanting actual halloumi fries, Aldi has relaunched its fries for £2.29.
The cheesy fries were first released last May, after the supermarket spotted how popular they were at Nando’s.
Aldi’s Specially Selected Golden & Crispy Specially Selected Halloumi Fries are available in stores already and can be found in the frozen foods aisle.
Aldi says: ‘Inspired by a similar offering from popular Portuguese chicken eatery, Nando’s; Aldi’s Specially Selected Haloumi Fries are made with scrumptiously soft – and salty – halloumi cheese from Cyprus and a lightly seasoned crispy coating making them the perfect side or snack for sharing.
‘So, get the sauce ready, start dipping and say hallou to halloumi heaven!’
