Taking to Twitter to share their views on the bizarre potato and caramel dessert, it’s fair to say viewers weren’t quite as onboard with the creation as the judges.
One fan commented: “Not quite sure how I feel about the potato dessert.”
Another said: “Mmmm, tastes like potato but much worse.”
A third added: “Mashed potato and sugar… No!”
“Two words: potato caramel. No, no, no, no, no,” a fourth tweeted.
A fifth said: “STOP DOING POTATO DESSERT MY MIND IS BREAKING.”
Another commented: “But I don’t want my potato to look like a cream cake.”
Masterchef returns to BBC One on Thursday at 9pm.
