It previously caused a stir when it hit the shelves in 2020 for £1.05.

But they have doubled in price as the UK is still gripped by the cost-of-living-crisis despite falling inflation.

Customers criticised M&S for selling a product that they believe should be free.

Some said that is what their local chippies did when they were young.

The 50g tubs can be found in the fridge section at the retailers’ food halls.

The £2 item is described by M&S as ‘scraps of our light crispy batter’, as reported by Need To Know.

“They are charging £2 for a tiny tub.

“We used to get these free from the chippy when we were kids.”

Claire Swann said: “They’re usually free from the chippy at the end of the day.”
