McCain Pizza Fingers
Advantages: Price, taste, easy, no fuss
When I was younger my Mum often bought these and we shared it amongst me, my sister and my brother (he got an extra one because he was a boy...and that somehow meant he deserved more in his eyes!). At that age, the 8 that the pack comes with was plenty for all of us (and as we got a bit older, we simply bought an extra box) and we'd often eat them completely on their own, as something just to pick at when we were hungry. As you can probably guess, and tell from the image on the packaging, they are simply rectangular shaped pizza pieces.
McCain products are always full of quality and are great tasting. The majority of their products involve potatoes and so are things such as chips, jacket potatoes and smilies (which are sorta of waffle consistency potato goods, made in the shape of smiley faces no doubt).
On the McCain website, Pizza Fingers are listed as a kids favourite, and from my own experience, I can definitely say that they were/are. Its hard to go wrong with a simple cheese and tomato pizza product, and unlike other more particular flavours such as ham or something more exotic like pineapple, you're more likely to be successful with something like this.
They make a perfect lunchtime treat and are very easy to cook. When I was younger (and too lazy to read the instructions on the back of the packet) I cooked these in the microwave. Apparently that was wrong and you are supposed to oven cook them! Although, to be honest, this revelation probably does explain why my cheese on my pizza fingers was incinerated. Now, when following the instruction (as you should!), you are supposed to cook these gently in the oven for a little over 10 minutes, which makes for another positive of the product, they're quick and easy.
Price and availability:
Pizza fingers tend to cost about £1.20 depending on when you happen to grab a box, and can be found in many supermarkets. I haven't seen them, or noticed them rather, in smaller local shops, so your best bet is probably a larger store.
These make for a great snack, although aren't necessarily very filling unless you plan on eating the entire box yourself! They are excellent for children as they taste great and are little fuss, but are also equally enjoyable to adults. I'd probably recommend them either as a small snack or maybe even as a a party food combined with other little bits and pieces to pick at.
Summary: A great pizza snack
