I'm now skint after spending a fortune at rip off Christmas markets – I have strong feelings on the food | The Sun

WINTER Wonderland has been dubbed a "rip off" after one girl said it left her "skint."

Scarlett Gladwin went to Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland and uploaded a vlog on TikTok showing her followers the food she bought.


She rated five items from the market out of ten and posted her opinions to warn others before they fork out their hard earned cash.

Scarlett captioned her video and wrote: "Am skint now."

First Scarlett rated the controversial tornado chips sold at one of the stalls and gave them a generous eight out of ten.

The Sun Online previously visited the Hyde Park market and discovered the potato on a stick was priced at £7

Someone commented on the video: "Girl you wasted about £10k's worth of tornado chips there" as the potato slices broke off and fell to the floor.

Next the content creator sampled a super cheesy pizza pretzel andscored it a seven.

But a warming Baileys hot chocolate was Scarlett's highest scorer, achieving full marks at 10/10.

The average price for a mug of regular coco at Winter Wonderland this year was between £4 and £5, according to MyLondon

A close second were "healthy and delicious" chocolate coated strawberries which deserved a nine out of 10.

Her mac and cheese portion ranked last with a five out of ten as she described it as "a bit watery."

As reported by MyLondon, the cost of The Mac Factory's Ho-Ho Hog Mac and Cheese costs a whopping £10, risen by just over a pound from last year.

Other disappointed visitors have taken to social media to share their frustrations about the steep prices.

One person took to Facebook and fumed: "I would say it's a complete rip off, so expensive and overpriced." 

Another person added: "It's a big fun fair, everything is overpriced, and it's not even comparable to a good Christmas market."

Another parent was quick to join in adding: "[The] kids will have fun. Expensive yes, overpriced sure but do a few rides then leave and eat before you go that helps."

Meanwhile someone else simply said: "It's a rip off."

One couple who visited the seasonal attraction spent £176 which made their "pockets hurt."

The pair also revealed in a TikTok video how they spent over £35 on food in total across the evening.

But the biggest expenditure by far was a huge £60 spent on games with the TikToker filming himself attempting to shoot hoops in basketball and knocking down targets with a ball.

As Brits across the nation struggle this Christmas amid the crippling cost of living crisis, many have dismissed Winter Wonderland as a festive fun day out.

But it's not the only Christmas market charging high prices.

Raging punters slammed the Manchester stalls as not Christmassy enough, with vendors instead offering an array of overpriced food and drinks.
