McCoy's Cheddar & Onion
Advantages: Tasty and satisfying.
Disadvantages: High in calories
I absolutely love savoury snacks and prefer a packet of crisps to a bar of chocolate any day. One of my favourites are McCoy's Cheddar & Onion, which I am eating right now and enjoying every tasty bite of them!
McCoy's Cheddar & Onion come in a foil packet which does a very good job of keeping the crisps nice and fresh. The pack is attractively coloured in dark green, black and gold and this classic colouring makes them look like a quality brand.
Thankfully, as well as looking like a quality brand, they taste like one too. When you open them, you do get quite a strong smell of cheese, which give you an idea of just how full the flavour is going to be. These crisps do not disappoint in that department. You can definitely taste both the cheese and the onion and neither flavour dominates the other.
McCoy's crisps are ridge cut, large and very thick. This make them extra crunchy and they do give you plenty to chew. After Pringles, these are definitely my favourite crisps and I do find the 32g bag quite filling and satisfying, as a snack. Unfortunately the majority of packets of crisps out now have so little content, you really feel the need for a second pack!
McCoy's crisps are cooked to perfection and very rarely do I find a green or blackened crisp in the packet.

McCoy's Cheddar & Onion ridge cut crisps are available from Tesco in a 6 pack for £1.59 but they are on special until 20th April for £1 only.
If you are partial to a savoury snack, then these are well worth buying. Unlike most crisps, McCoy's are satisfying and although they are higher in calories, you're tummy won't start rumbling again, five minutes later!
Summary: McCoy's Cheddar & Onion - thick, crunchy, tasty crisps.
