He bought the packet as part of a £1 multipack from the supermarket Iceland in Glasgow’s West End, on Monday.

He wrote: ‘Check the size a this frazzle man. Am frazzled looking at it.’

Rhodri Wyn Jones said: ‘I can’t understand how this is possible. Unless you’ve grafted one frazzle to another to make one big super frazzle?!’  

‘The bag was already open and it was poking out. Was raging. Thought it would be soggy when a pulled this out – a Mary Poppins bag a Frazzles’, The north Lanarkshire man replied. 

@akira-direwolf commented: ‘That’s got to be a Guinness world record of a Frazzle.   

While @conorbrn added simply: ‘That is class.’    

Beth Atkin said the hefty crisp was ‘literally what I dream about.’

Shaun Hendo said it had made quite the impression: ‘Nah that [crisp] is an absolute belter.’

Frazzles made headlines following the controversial Channel 5 documentary which saw them missed from Britain’s top twenty best crisps list – with Walkers, Pringles and Doritos given the top spot.

Watchers branded the results ‘absolutely sickening’ and a ‘s***show’ – with Kettle, Sensations, Tyrrells and McCoys ranked second best.

The Crisp Connoisseur expressed outrage about a handful of crisps given no mention: ‘No French Fries. No Discos. No Skips. No Frazzles. No Space Raiders. No integrity. #BritainsFavouriteCrisps.’ 

‘No Frazzles & No Discos?!?!? Mini Cheddars aren’t even flipping crisps either’, Sky Sports presenter Hayley McQueen wrote on Twitter. 

Jack Stirling wrote: ‘Skips not even in the top 20. What’s the actual point? Shows how f***ed democracy is in this country.’

Frazzles were first produced in the UK in 1975. Despite being bacon-flavour, the corn-based crisps are suitable for vegetarians.
