UK Cypriot Maria Antoniou appears on Dragons Den

The last entrepreneur to enter the den this week is a face we’ve seen before. Chelmsford-based UK Cypriot Maria Antoniou actually appeared on Channel 4’s Aldi’s Next Big Thing two years ago, pitching the very same sweet and savoury concoction – a milk chocolate bar stuffed with crisps.

Launched in 2022, the bar of crisps comes in three different flavours. There’s ready salted, cheese and onion and salt and vinegar. They’ve all got potato crisps stuffed inside their chocolate exteriors. One bar of crisps costs £4.99,
