Christmas food 2018 — We test the best festive crisps on the high street and find out which ones are simply disgusting

FROM Christmas tree flavours to pigs in blankets and raspberry bellini, our favourite snacks have gone all festive.

JENNY FRANCIS samples a selection and rates their crispmas taste out of five.

 Jenny tried out 12 packets of crisps to see test which would come out on top

Green like sprouts and taste like the real thing – but rather gross. Could add a bit of festive fun to a party.

 These crisps are more of a novelty item

The fun festive packaging, would brighten up any Christmas party but taste is a bit bland. Need a dip to go with them.

 These crisps aren't bad, but they're not bursting with flavour

Lovely roast dinner experience, full of all the flavours. Smartly packed, strikes a festive note.

 These parsnip crisps are packed full of flavour

Taste like an expensive cheese, with bit of fizz, but nothing new. Packaging is classy but not festive.

 These crisps are nice but not worth getting super excited about

Sweet, like cranberry, but more like a quirky dessert treat than savoury snack.

Dull bag but crisps taste like Mum’s Christmas roast, with a hint of all the flavours.

 A great bag of crisps but they could've done more with the packaging

Taste exactly like Frazzles, which means smokey bacon. But there is no hint of sausage or roast dinner, so not very festive.

 This bag didn't taste of sausage

Salty with a hint of pine. Although I’ve never tried to taste a Christmas tree before, this is what I imagined. Original and tasty.

 No palm oil is used in the making of these crisps and they taste great too

Imagine eating raspberries dipped in salt, out of a wine glass left out over-night after a party. Just the smell made me gag. Yuk!

 Our Jenny absolutely hated these crisps

Deliciously cheesy, with the perfect hint of rosemary. My favourite of the lot and a real festive treat.

Delicious taste of gammon, with hint of smokey whisky. However the flavour is not super festive, nor is the packet.

 Good flavour but more could have been done to jazz up the packaging for Christmas

These taste like the real deal, strong sausage flavour with a hint of bacon. Packaging is festive-red, flavour is perfectly Chrismassey.

 These were the only Pigs in Blankets crisps that actually tasted of sausage
