My boyfriend is a really, really fussy eater and the other night, me being low on funds didn't know what the heck to get to go with pizza for our tea. I always get plain chips but to me, they are so boring so when I spotted these in Morrisons (and all other good supermarkets) on offer at a pound a bag (but if not on offer priced more around the £1.50 mark) I thought they sounded interesting for me, the boyfriend and my flatmate to try out. The Packaging: The plastic bag the chips come in is brown in colour with a pictiure of some potatoes on the front of it and then a steak meal with the cooked chips on. Also on the front of the bag we are told that ... Read the complete review

I am a big believer in the chip, not it's spindly Americanised cousin the "french fry" but a good British Chip. A great potatoey ambassador on the world stage of food. Mccains are a british based company which is nice and they are well known for making quality chips made from specially selected spuds. A good chip should be fat, have a crisp outside and a soft smoking hot center. While I would say that while mccains chips do meet these strict criteria usually no oven cooked chip compares to that of a good old fish & chip shop chip. However there is one type of chip where the oven variety wins out (as I have never even seen them down my ... Read the complete review

We do love chips in our house. There are one or two favourite fish and chips shops that we go to but mainly we make our own. When we saw these new chips in our local supermarket we thought it our duty to try them. This is what we thought. What is the product ? Beer battered chips (ridge cut) Who are they made by? McCain ( who know a thing or two about making chips) Size of bag ? 750g Easy to find in the supermarket ? Yes, they are in the freezer cabinet and the McCain name is quite easy to spot. Are they expensive ? Not really, I have found that they are often on special offer. Expect to ... Read the complete review

As you may know from my other reviews, that we do like like our wedges. So I thought I would tell you about these McCain Beer Battered ridge cut Chips.As they are really delicous!! One day I was in my local Morrisons when I saw that these were in their end freezer where they do the special offers and were on price for £1 a packet. This bags weighs 750g and hold the most tasty chip ever. This bag is very eyecatching as it has a large white plate on the front cover with a crisp green salad, rump steak and these golden crispy beer battered chips! With a sack of potato's to one side. With the McCain logo and Beer Battered Chips emblazoned across the ... Read the complete review

An interesting idea, beer battered chips. Having tried beer battered onion rings and fish, I decided to take a punt at McCains offering. The first thing I'll note is that a standard 1.81kg bag of crinkly oven chips usually costs me about £1.70, and that these bad boys cost the same for just 750g. So you're paying a premium, already. The taste, after a fairly long cook in the oven of nearly fourty minutes - and double the cooking time of crinkly chips - isn't discernibly different from ordinary oven chips. They're pleasant for large chips, which I don't normally go for, but are you going to be tasting beer on the coating? Probably not. Beer battered fish for ... Read the complete review
