Iceland Divides Shoppers With NEW Christmas Side Dish


Hey savvy shoppers! Iceland has just dropped a Christmas side dish that's causing quite the stir. Picture this: luxury sprouts wrapped in bacon. Yes, you read that right. It's the food equivalent of Marmite - you either love it or hate it.

Now, let's talk reactions. Social media is buzzing with opinions. The Newfoodsuk Facebook page recently showcased this dish, and boy, did it ignite a debate! We're talking about 3,500 reactions and over 4,600 comments. That's a lot of buzz for Brussels sprouts!

Some shoppers are over the moon, calling it a match made in heaven. Comments like "heavenly combo" and "lush" are all over the place. But, as with anything divisive, there's the other side. A significant number of people can't stand the thought of it. We've seen comments ranging from "I'll pass" to "sounds horrendous."

Jon Rogers at The Sun reported this unique culinary twist. He highlighted the strong reactions and paralleled it with Marmite's famous "love it or hate it" stance.

Interestingly, this isn't just a matter of taste. There's science behind why some people find Brussels sprouts off-putting. And for those who dread Christmas because of these little greens, this dish might not be on their festive menu.

So, if you are intrigued and repelled by Iceland's new offering you should give it a try.

Tom Church, Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, sums it up perfectly: "It's fascinating to see how one dish can spark such diverse reactions. It's a testament to the varied tastes and preferences of consumers. Whether you love it or hate it, it's definitely got people talking."
