Looks like Christmas has arrived a tad early in the United Kingdom! The land responsible for foods such as Scotch eggs and Yorkshire pudding is now selling Christmas tree-flavored chips (or “crisps” if you’re British) that are meant to taste just like the popular holiday decoration.

To get that distinct Christmas taste, the chips, which are produced by a food brand called Iceland, are coated in something called “pine salt flavor seasoning.” According to the list of ingredients, said seasoning basically consists of sea salt and pine oil. Yum!

The chips, which retail for about $1.30 per bag, are currently being sold at grocery stores throughout the U.K. They are also hand-cooked and vegetarian-friendly. What’s more? If a mouthful of pine isn’t your thing, Iceland also makes chips flavored like pigs-in-blanket and lobster cocktail.

“At Iceland we are always evolving our product range to include the latest foods and trends,” Iceland head chef, Neil Nugent, told U.K. publication News Shopper. “The Christmas tree crisps have a slight ready salted flavor with a hint of pine that creates a completely new combination, unlike any other festive flavor.”

Despite the chips’ unique taste, many social media users can’t understand why anyone would want to eat something that’s crafted to taste like a Christmas tree. Check out some spirited Twitter reactions below:
