Fish and chip shop introduces FRIED Quality Streets for Christmas and people love the ‘heavenly’ idea (but would YOU eat them?)
From deep-fried Mars bars to crispy pig ears, there isn’t much that can’t be coated in hot oil and cooked.
And now, a London fish and chip shop has taken the experience up a notch by offering fried Quality Street sweets.
Poppies of Soho will be selling the ‘lucky dips’ of deep fried sweets for £2.50 from December 1 until Christmas Day.
Social media users are loving the idea, with many taking to Instagram to express how keen they are to try the fried chocolate treats.
