Jersey New Potatoes with Mint

Finally come the most imaginative offering from M&S in these ‘New Royals’. They play on looking like a miniature bag of Jersey Royal New Potatoes, but do have a sneaky “not what it seems” quote on the front. In fact they are strawberries dipped in white chocolate, and made to look like potatoes. Quite a clever idea, and they really did make me smile.

This hasn’t fooled many as shown in the comments:

  • The “New Royals” potato shaped strawberries are wonderfully adventurous for them!
  • The ‘Potatoes’ is a not so direct copy of Rococo Chocolates sweets disguised as vegetables.
  • I’ve heard of the Rococo ones – and they look fab. They are filled with praline too, which I’d love!
