I love chips..... any kind (usually) so when I spotted these that cook in 3 minutes flat I simply had to try them out...finally (I, to the best of my knowledge had never eaten one before let alone bought any!). The Packaging: The Chips come in a black box and on the top of that I am told that they McCain 'Crinkle' Micro Chips and that they cook in 3 minutes and there is a photograph of sunflowers and the chips on there. Other information given on the box includes being told that they are made from 100% British potatoes, there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there, I'm told how to cook them (they are only to be microwaved), the size is stated ...

I used to eat these a lot years ago when I was at college and school, and back then I really loved them purely for convenience. I tried them again a couple of years ago and was so disappointed. You buy Micro Chips from the freezer section of the supermarket and you an get 2 or 4 boxes at a time, and I think they are pretty expensive, something like 2 or 3 pounds for 4 boxes. To cook these, you open the box and fold back the lid and microwave for about 3 minutes, when they are cooking they do fill the kitchen with the smell of chips, which I used to like when I was younger. Then you can literally take them out and eat them straight away. They taste ... Read the complete review

PACKAGING These come in a mainly black box with "Mccain crinkle micro chips" written on the front. There is a picture of a sunflower and some of the chips and potatoes beside them. The box it comes in is "quite a small" one with a very easy to open lid. There is little lines which go down the middle of the box and when you peel the lid back it rips along them. The lid can also be resealed once they have been microwaved. RECOMMENDED COOKING TIMES For one box 650W - 3 minutes, 750W - 2 minutes and 30 seconds and 850W 2 minutes 15 seconds. For two boxes 650W - 4 minutes and 45 seconds, ... Read the complete review

Whenever I go shopping I always look for something that I can put in the freezer that can be cooked quickly if I am in a rush or need a quick snack. One of the foods that I have recently tried is Mccains micro chips. ~Packaging~ You get 4 boxes of chips which can cost between £1 - £1.40 depending on the supermarket. Each box is made out of cardboard, which is black in colour and has a picture on the front of a sunflower, potatoes and crinkle chips. ~How to Cook~ All you do is tear the front flap, tuck the flap underneath the box and place in the microwave. If you look inside the box you will notice a grey ... Read the complete review

I rarely eat ready-meal style foods these days, but I picked up a box of micro chips last week because I hadn't had them in so long and felt like a few to snack on in the evening. I can't say they hold a great appeal to me, despite being made by McCain, but as far as quick preparation goes these are extremely fast & easy. Micro Chips are produced by McCain, a company with years of knowledge and experience. Because of this I would expect good quality from their products, however I think there is probably a limit as to how good the quality of chips can be when they're cooked in the microwave. These seem to be quite popular and so they're readily ... Read the complete review
