MORRISONS has sparked outrage among Spaniards after announcing it will sell cheesy churros this Christmas.
Twitter users have slammed the supermarket giant for ‘blasphemy,’ claiming that this new twist on their beloved national treat doesn’t even deserve to be called a churro.
It comes after Fiona Govan, editor of The Local, shared the news on Twitter, writing, ‘wait until Spain hears about this…’

While another joked: “Cooking fish and chips with vanilla ice cream in three, two, one.”
Morrisons describes its controversial Christmas creation as a ‘blend of mashed potato, cheese sauce and Gouda cheese with a red pepper dip and a medium fat hard cheese sprinkle.’
One user even linked the retailer’s new creation to Pedro Sanchez’s initial threat to veto Theresa May’s Brexit deal.
Is this revenge for the Gibraltar comments?
