Iceland, along with McCain, has leaped on a unicorn trend to launch unicorn-shaped potato shapes, costing £1 a bag. Think potato smiles – though unicorns.
The unicorns are done with genuine potato crush and can be baked fast from frozen: glorious news for bustling relatives of toddlers who are transfixed by unicorn YouTube, no doubt.
In box one unicorn-based foodstuff isn’t adequate to tempt your child to a table, Iceland also bonds Bernard Matthews Unicorn Dippers for £2, and an own-brand Strawberry and Candyfloss Unicorn Ice Cream for a same price.

The enchanting spud-based bites are disdainful to Iceland – online and in-store – and are accessible from 16 October.
Unicorn horns coated in ketchup, anyone?
