Iceland Releases ​New Space Raiders And Hula Hoops Potato Shapes

Forget the ever-cheerful potato smileys of your youth, as there are two new products to whack in the oven for tea that are guaranteed to give you an even bigger hit of nostalgia - shaped to resemble some of your favourite childhood crisps.

Iceland has introduced Space Raiders and Hula Hoops frozen potato shapes, both of which sound like an absolute shout.

According to New Foods UK, the Space Raiders shapes will officially be available in stores from 12 April, and come in either Pickled Onion or Beef flavour - although some shoppers appear to have been able to track some down already.

Both flavours are already listed on the Iceland website in 680g bags costing £1.50, with a notice saying they're 'coming soon'.

One person commented: "I love the crisp but definitely gunna have to try these."

Another person wrote: "F***ing hell I bet they are tasty."

A third said: "Beef flavoured potato. Wtf is this madness! Sign me up."

Seeming less convinced by one particular flavour, another added: "Pickled onion potato shapes I'm not sure but the beef ones definitely yes."

And the Space Raider shapes aren't the only ones you can buy, as Iceland has also released two Hula Hoops versions, too.

"BBQ Beef, Original Salted, Cheese & Onion and Salt & Vinegar! Some stores have already got these out, but they are officially launching on 12th April, so keep your eyes peeled!"
