I love oven chips, rather strangely, more so than fried ones because I tend to have issues with worrying that fried chips will not be cooked the whole way through or get a greasy coating in my mouth. I also worry that chips bought from a chip shop might have been cooked in the same oil used to cook meat products and like all my chips to be of similar size. Apart from my weird obsessions (now that they're out of the way) I am going to tell you my experience of McCain Home Fries. McCain Home Fries have been on the market for several years and in my opinion they are the best chips out there, they are available in 500g and 1.5kg bags and come in either crinkle ...

The one thing I really do like is chips. Although I know they are rather bad for me I consume them almost on a daily basis! There is nothing better than home made or shop bought fresh one's but of course I can't always be bothered to make my own and certainly don't want to become known in the local chippy so occasionally I will buy a bag of frozen one's which these are. I purchased these the other day in Asda as they are on offer at a pound a bag at the moment and of course I recognise the name that is McCain as a quality and a trusted brand so I actually bought a couple of bags and hoped they be nice! The Packaging: The bag is dark blue with a ... Read the complete review

Mccains Original Homefries Description: Crispy delicious chips. I am not really a big fan of chips and so we don't have them very often in our house. If we do have them, it tends to be when we fancy a fish supper and pop to our local chip shop. Now Mr Siamese is the opposite, and he loves chips. This basically means that every time I go away, I come back to find them in the freezer! Last weekend, I went to London with friends and had a fantastic time drinking cocktails and clubbing. Mr Siamese was left at home to look after the pets and of course, eat chips! When I came home on Monday night, I was a little hungover ... Read the complete review

I have to admit my partner and I usually buy Morrisons own brand oven chips because we like them and they are pretty cheap but recently we ended up doing a bit of shopping in the Co-op and chips were on the list. McCain Homefries were on offer on this occasion, two 1kg bags for £2 so we decided to get some of these. I love Homefries and always have but they are usually so much more expensive than the ones we normally buy that we don't have them often. I can't really justify spending more than twice the price on these when the Morrisons own brand are perfectly acceptable so I was looking forward to having some of these chips. We got the standard ... Read the complete review

We all enjoy chips at some time during the week so when I was in a hurry the other day I grabbed a 1.5kg bag of frozen ones from our local corner shop for £2.49. I've always been pleased with most of McCains products & thought these would be a 'safe' buy. They come in a choice of original or crinkled & I chose the original ones. The bag's as shown in the picture & is bright & cheerful, sturdy plastic, clearly marked & showing images of sunflowers, potatoes & a bowlful of cooked chips. There's a circle with a union jack & it states these are made from '100% British potatoes'. The nutritional values are also ... Read the complete review
