Marks and Spencer have picked up on the fact that the nation’s favorite food is fish and chips and have started selling the “scraps”, otherwise known as the bits of batter that is left over when frying the fish.
Marks and Spencer slammed for selling tubs of chip shop “scraps”: They are retailing their tubs at £1.05 and are marketing them under the strap line “scraps of our light and crispy batter” that should be cooked before eaten and can be frozen too. However, not everyone is happy with the high street stores new line and hoards of users took to Twitter in the backlash.
One commented “I can’t believe they have gentrified scraps” and the comment got 20,000 likes and 2,000 replies. Another said “Oh my god, what a rip off, you get them free at the chip shops”. Although one user said that, for people living in the south of the country, it’s “the nearest they can get to having them”.
A spokesperson for M&S said “We first introduced our delicious scraps back in 2018 with our popular battered fish, and this autumn we decided it was time to set them free and allow customers to choose where they sprinkle these crispy, light nuggets of savoury batter!
Launched as part of our new ‘Chip Shop’ range, they’ve definitely got the nation talking and we’re now looking forward to hearing how customers across the whole of the UK are enjoying theirs.”
