Marks & Spencer have caused an outcry in Spain with their chorizo paella croquetas which are available to buy in their stores. Hugh Elliot, the British ambassador to Spain, responded to a post on X about the new product stating: “Chorizo, yes! Paella, yes! Croquetas, yes! Yes! All together? …. M&S, what have you done?”

According to The Independent in an X post that has been viewed over 50,000 times, a Madrid based Briton shared a picture of the snack captioned “NO NO NO”.
