THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DREAM OR A BEAUTIFUL HALLUCINATION.

IT’S HAPPENED!

They’re already available at Coles for $4 a pack and when did this happen, why were WE NOT INFORMED.

I’m sorry about the caps lock here but HONESTLY, I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR A WHILE.

If you’re not aware of what these are you might be a little too young (or I’m too old), they’re pretty much mashed potato in the shape of a smiley face with a beautifully crispy golden exterior.

This time round they’re not called McCain Smiles like they used to be.

They’re now called McCain’s Emotibites…which honestly is a bit of an *eyeroll* but whatever, we’ll take anything.

 

Described as ‘mashed potato shapes” it looks like the baggie contains an assortment of emoji-shaped smiles.

Huge thanks to this “avid foodie” for bringing this to my attention…

Concetta’s Food Safari Chapter 1: have you heard of little things called potato smilies? I did when i was a kid.. they were almost a myth.. i’d heard of them but never seen them in the flesh. They seemed too good to be true.. chips…. but they’re faces? My god what can’t they do. Unfortunately i never got the chance to try them, having grown up on only a sensible italian diet (pasta & pizza)…. until now. We fast forward to 2020, when i hear on the grapevine (facebook newsfeed) about EMOTIBITES. Racing to my local coles with my heart pounding, i find my white whale. Being 2020, emojis are how we communicate, faces are dated; yuck. It makes sense that with all of our modern day culinary advancements, oven-baked potato snacks shouldn’t be left behind. Here’s to innovation. Salute! 😘
