      Nice crisps for a snack, available in different flavours and worth the money

      I love crisps and I'm currently writing reviews on allot of them. I probably have 1 or 2 bags each day ayes I know it's not great for the daily diet but who cares you only live once. These bags are quite big and you know you get quite allot in them however they are a tad bit more expensive than walkers etc. when I go to tesco on my lunch break I tend to go for the bigger crisps as I know you get more in them. These crinkle cut crisps are so tasty and full of flavour. They come in the normal flavours ready salted, cheese and salt and vinegar but hey also sell them in many different other flavour, none that I would buy as I like he originals and normally go for these cheese ones. The crisps are so fill of flavour and I don think I've been disappointed with the quantity in the bag. You can also buy these in multipacks so you get a few of each flavour.

      Favourite!

      Ok, they're 'man' crisps. However as a woman I can appreciate their thick, tough, kind of appearance. However when I want a decent bag of crisps, this is exactly what I need. None of this airy fairy light feminine rubbish. If I want to eat a packet of crisps I will do it right with one of these.

      Not for the dieters! These can come in at around 170kcal a bag (from the top of my head) for a standard bag. These are very high in fat and so these are really an indulgent treat for me. Otherwise i try to be good and stick to the baked varieties which are around the 120kcal mark. So there is a significant calorie difference.

      You can also taste the fat difference if you are not used to it. It coats the inside of your mouth which all of us need from time to time. It is comforting sometimes I have to say.

      These crisps are very thick and crunchy, making them quite a filling snack. These will definitely satisfy the crisp craving. These are ridged so they collect all the flavour in the nooks and crannies making them pack a punch on your tastebuds. The flavours I find are particularly strong, they don't shy away at all. Sometimes I can actually find them a little overwhelming.

      However in conclusion, when the crisp craving calls these don't disappoint. You can really get your teeth into them and they give you a very satisfying crunch. Love them.

      Also you can always find a bag of 6 for a pound in poundland which is also a bonus!

      Thanks for reading

        'Accept No Imitations'

        I must admit to being a bit of a savoury snack eater. I not really a chocolate sort of girl and Crisps are definitely my weakness, especially McCoys.

        About McCoys
        McCoys crisps are made by KP Snacks who also produce Hula Hoops and Skips.
        McCoys first started in 1985 and over 20 years later they are still going strong. Their caption is 'Accept No Imitations' which is usually written on the crisp packet.

        Packaging
        McCoy crisps come in a gold foil bag. On the front is the McCoy's logo. The logo is various colour depending on what flavour you have i.e., green is cheese and onion, blue is salt and vinegar.
        As I already mentioned these packets are foil so the crisps are very fresh and crunchy, just like crisps should be.

        Price
        I usually buy my McCoys from Tesco and here a multipack of 6 costs £1.34. You can also get a multipack of 12 for £2 so I think they are fairly well priced considering the way they taste! These crisps are much more expensive if you buy them by the singular packet as they cost about 50p for one packet!

        The McCoy Crisp
        McCoys are well known for being very chunky crisps. The normal McCoys are crinkle cut although recently they have bought out different varieties that are not crinkle cut recently.
        The crisps are probably two to three times the thickness of normal crisps such as Walkers and Discos.
        The crisps are a lovely golden colour with a few darker shades of golden brown mixed in.

        Smell
        As you open the bag, you get a big whiff of whichever flavour you have selected. I always think that the cheese and onion and the spicy flavours smell very strong and certainly gets your taste buds going.

        Taste
        McCoys are well known for being full of flavour and they certainly are. I have eaten most flavours of these crisps and they get your taste buds tingling with the amazing flavours.
        The crisps are so crunchy and extremely moorish. They certainly seem to fill me up more than other brands due to the fact that they are so chunky. The flavour is literally totally covering each crisp and it managed to get in-between the ridges of the crinkle in the crisp.
        My favourite way of eating these crisps is to lick all the flavouring off the crisp and then eat it ridge by ridge so I really appreciate the intense flavour between the ridges.

        Flavours
        McCoy crisps come in a large range of flavours. There are the usual flavours such as Cheese and Onion (although they are called Cheddar and Onion) and Ready Salted etc and you also have some very different flavoured ones such as Sweet Thai Chicken (which are my absolute favourites!), Spiced Chilli, Flame Grilled Steak and Firecracker Chicken and lots more.
        Recently they have also bought out a range of flatter McCoys crisps (which have a lower calorie content) and they do some exotic flavours in this range such as Jalapeño Pepper and Cheese, and Lime and Cheddar Cheese.

        Summary
        These are an excellent crisp and well worth trying. They are full of flavour and extra chunky so leave you feeling totally satisfied. I think they are better value for money if you buy them in the multi pack rather than as single packs.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          McCoys - big flavour, thick and crispy, big taste, smells great

          *{INTRODUCTION}*

          I have been on the lookout for some better tasting crisp, I don't eat a lot of crisp but the odd bag does it for me. I normally tend to buy walkers, but I think in my personal opinion they have gone a little down hill, as far as taste and how many you get in a bag, and not worth the money you spend. I came across these crisp at my local spar shop, they looked appealing so I decided to pop a bag into my basket.

          *{ABOUT, TASTE, FLAVOUR}*

          I bought a multipack from my local spar shop, and decided to give them a try I am glad I did, as I wasn't disappointed. They had such flavours as cheese and onion, salt and vinegar and ready salted, although you can buy other multipacks with different flavours in them. I am not to keen on the salt and vinegar ones or the ready salted they are just not my type of flavour, but do eat them if I have to. These are very tasty crisps, and could really have more than one bag at a time (I don't though) but after one bag you're satisfied. The flavours bursts out into your mouth, and can really taste the flavour, as soon as you open the bag you can smell them, and you can't wait to tuck in.

          The multipacks you get 2 of each flavour, and you don't get tired of eating them like I used to do with walkers, they rigid in shape, and are a thicker crisp, although can be to hard sometimes to crunch. You don't get so many in a bag which is a shame for the cost, but they are overall a better tasting crisp, and wouldn't change these for anything else.

          *{PACKAGING & INFORMATION}*

          The packaging on the crisp is quite appealing and draws you to them, the bag is quite large, and looks quite bulky. Each bag of crisp there will be information on calories and so forth so you know what is inside them and how much. Each bag also contains a foil inside to keep the crisp fresh and so lasting longer.

          *{AVAILABILITY & PRICE}*

          I bought my multipack from my local spar the first time around at £1.86, but you can buy them from supermarkets, I did buy some of these at asda as they were on offer for £1, which was a great saver. When they aren't on offer you can be spending £1.86 on these which are not bad just a shame they don't have more in the bags.

          *{FINAL THOUGHTS}*

          I think I will be keeping to these crisp, they are packed with flavour, and they are tasty, thick and smell delicious. My partner and my son likes them too, which for a multipack is ideal for us all. I'm glad I tried these and wasn't disappointed, as I think they are value for money.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I like the flavours, but I probably wouldn't buy them again as I think they have become overly tight

            Why did I buy these?

            I spotted a 6 bag multi-pack of McCoy's in my local Tesco Express, and seeing as they were on special offer I thought I would pick them up. I used to love McCoy's crisps when I was a little younger, and my boyfriend is fond of them too, so I decided they would make a nice treat.

            The flavours.

            This particular multi-pack contained Bacon Sizzler, Flame Grilled Steak, and Chargrilled Chicken flavours. I hadn't previously tried any of these flavours, but seeing as the Salt and Vinegar flavour always packed a punch, I thought these would be equally as good. I wasn't wrong - the flavours are truly delicious! One of the things I've always liked about McCoy's is that they don't shy away from using strong flavours - and that's what I think makes a good crisp. The Chargrilled Chicken in particular is very tasty, it has a strong savoury flavour of chicken, with a slight smokiness which is nice. If you are fond of meat flavour crisps, then I'm certain that you will love these.
            The ridged texture of these crisps also makes a nice change from the typical Walkers varieties. They have an excellent crunch when you bite into them which is very satisfying.

            Packaging.

            I always remembered the bags of McCoy's being huge, and they seem tiny now! As soon as I opened the individual bag of crisps, I was bitterly disappointed to find that it was barely filled. I would estimate that over half the bag was empty, and I always remembered them being much fuller. If you are looking for a filling bag of crisps, then I would suggest giving these a miss! It's a real shame that most crisps companies are becoming so stingy when it comes to actually filling their bags.

            Price and availability.

            McCoy's are widely available from most good supermarkets, and newsagents. I paid only around 90p for this multi-pack as they were on offer from Tesco's. The normal price from Tesco is £1.88, and there's no way that I would buy these at that price.
            I also spotted them on the Asda website for a mere £1.00, which is pretty decent.

            Nutrition.

            Not a particularly healthy snack, these crisps contain roughly 164 calories, 9.6g of fat, and 0.6g of salt per bag. I think these are okay as a treat, but for the small amount of crisps you actually get in a bag, I think I'd rather have an oat cake or something similar.

            Even though these crisps are absolutely delicious, I don't think I'll be buying one of these multi-packs again. I just cannot believe how few crisps you get in one of the already tiny bags. It's a real shame, but they seem to have gone downhill since I last had them.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Great taste, but lots of calories

              When I get in from school the crisp bag is the first place I go, and I'm always pleased when I find it's a McCoys bag.

              The McCoys bags we buy have cheddar and onion, ready salted, salt and vinegar, flame grilled steak, bacon sizzler and chargrilled chicken. These are all great tastes, my favourites are chargrilled chicken and cheddar and onion. They're all very strong and rich, full of flavour and the crisps are thick and crinkle cut. They're really moreish unfortunately, and I often crave another bag once I've finished. They aren't ver good for you, I know, but they're so tasty! There is apparently 30% less fat now, although I doubt this makes much difference to the health benefits crisps bring you ( - NONE).

              The packets look big a fat, bulky and full of flavour, however when you open the packet you will find that in fact there is only half a pack full of crisps, but I'm sure you'll be familiar with crisp packets being half full. There are 32g of crisps in each packet. Also, in each packet there are 167 calories (oh god), 0.7g sugar, 10g fat, 1g saturates, 0.5g salt. As you can see they aren't very healthy and the calorie count is high! But I'm lucky enough not to have to worry about calories as I have a great metabolism. But for those of you who like to know the calorie intake, there you go.

              Compared to Walkers, these are slightly more expensive, but still reasonable in my opinion, and worth it too. I buy mine from Morrisons and I love it when they're on offer.

              Overall I'd say the fall flavour, amazing taste you get with McCoys, in their thick, crinkle cut crisps is worth the price and worth the calories. They're just such a good tasting brand of crisp I can't stress you full of flavour each pack is. A great snack on t's own or a wonderful addition to a sandwich and more for lunch at work or school, however they aren't filling at all. Actually I just ate two packs writing this review, and I need more to eat, but I know another pack is just too much, so now I'm going to head to the fruit bowl for a healthier snack, and apple or banana perhaps, Adois!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              In general their range is excellent with the exception of bbq chicken

              Intro

              I know that crisps are not exactly good for you, but usually they are a quick tasty fill me up, although some packets these days seem to be getting smaller and smaller. My crisp of choice is normally Walkers Cheese and Onion, but being in vending I see so many different varieties sometimes I just like to have a change.

              Every so often our machines have promotions and McCoys appears to be flavour of the month just now, which seems to coincide with some of the major stores promotions. McCoys come in a huge variety of flavours including the now standard cheese and onion, plain, salt and vinegar, but today i would like to review a McCoys multi pack which is named Meaty feast

              Meaty Feast

              The six pack of McCoys meaty crisps usually retails at around the £1.79 mark which in itself if I suppose reasonable, but shop around and you can get 2 for £3 or even better depending on the store. The stores in question are ASDA and Morrisons. The pack is brightly coloured in a purple and black kind of stripe with flashes of gold. Boldly emblazoned across the front is the now standard McCoy logo in black.

              Six packets of crisps, 2 Flame Grilled Steak, 2 Barbeque Chicken, and 2 Roast Ham and Mustard. I had tried two of the flavours before so it was the one, which I had not tried, which I delved into first, this being The Roast ham and Mustard. I was a little reluctant to try these since I'm not a fan of mustard or at least I wasn't until I tried these.
              The ham flavour was obvious and quite strong, but it was the peculiar mustard flavour, which set these crisps apart for the others. I was not expecting it to work but it was rather tasty and the combination which I had of course heard of before were working well with each other. I think the fact that McCoys crisps are ridged makes the flavour more intense than the normal type crisp. This was definitely the case with the ham and mustard. I liked these and I liked them a lot.

              The Flame grilled, which I have had on many occasions, were up to the usual high standard I find with McCoys crisps. Crunchy quite large and a good mouthful of flavour every crisp. Meaty certainly...............flame steak..........probably not, but none the less a beefy and tasty crisp.
              The final one of the selection has through a process of elimination ended up being the Barbeque Chicken and of the three on offer this was perhaps my least favourite, but should have been highly esteemed since I do love chicken crisps. So in my better judgement I'm blaming the poor Barbeque flavour here, it was too sweet (says he who eats pounds of chocolate). It actually had a funny taste, not one I would have associated with barbeque anyway. They were sharply put to one side to be avoided at all costs.


              Summary

              Overall I think this was a 66% good purchase since 33% were bouff, totally inedible and just plain rancid, I'm guessing that those who have actually read the review will have by now assumed which variety is enveloped in the 33% clause. If not then pay attention why don't you. At 2 for £3 great value overall, at £1.79 per pack I'd be swaying back to the Walkers Cheese and Onion. One final point that the specific criteria has brought to my attention is the smell, and here all flavours were top notch in smelling as they were meant, even the bad 33% did smell of barbeque, just didn't taste as such.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I have to limit myself because I could eat these everyday

                Oh how I wish I had never ever tried these crisps. They are so addictive and tasty that I have to limit myself to only buying them a couple of times a year, because once they are in the house, they don't stay around for long.

                McCoys are ridged crisps that are quite substantial compared to a lot of other brands. They are a pretty thick crisp and are a bit more filling than most. They are oval in shape and the colour ranges from lightly golden to occasionally a very dark brown.

                They come in a variety of flavours including steak and onion, cheddar and onion, prawn cocktail, salt and vinegar, ready salted, bacon and barbeque. You can buy the Cheddar and onion, salt and vinegar and ready salted in a multi pack or you can buy a mixed multi pack with various flavours in, this does however depend on where you shop as I found out recently.

                They usually come either individually or in multi packs of 6 bags. I don't buy them individually so am not sure of the cost. The multi packs are between 99p and £1.29 depending on where you buy them, but they often go offer for as little as 49p (BOGOF 2 for 99p).

                My favourite flavour has got to be the Cheddar cheese and onion. I just love it. I do like the other flavours, but this one has just got the strongest flavour of any crisps I have ever tried, which isn't so good for your breath!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A great, thick, flavoursome crisp.

                I much prefer savoury snacks to the sweeter alternatives such as chocolate. That being said I do try and keep my snacking to a minimum, but a treat every now and again is required.

                I'm not sure why I don't buy McCoys more often (other than wanting to use the money to buy something more healthy). You can find McCoys crisps for about £1.60 (for 6 pack bags (variety packs, Chedder Cheese & Onion, Salt and Malt Vinegar, salted, sizzling king prawn or flame grilled steak)).

                I normally buy the variety pack that features 'Salted, 'Chedder Cheese & Onion' and 'Salt & Malt Vinegar' as I love all three flavours and it is good to have a bit of variety. In a variety pack you get two individually packaged bags of each flavour.

                Inside each bag is a good portion of crisps, I would suggest the bag is filled more than you can find in other brands of crisps. The crisps themselves are quite thick and are ridged or crinkled, though you will find that the size of crisps isn't uniformed.

                What I enjoy most about these crisps is the flavouring. I don't think I have ever had a bag of McCoys that haven't had a good helping of salt on them. That isn't to say that they are too salty and have an over-powering taste, they are just well flavoured. Chedder Cheese and Onion is more favoured, by myself, to other cheese and onion flavours and find that this has a smoother taste with more of a focus on the chedder cheese flavouring than the onion. The salt and malt vinegar does have a more salty flavouring rather than an overpowering vinegar flavour. The 'Salted' flavour taste exactly as you would expect ready salted to taste and they do not lack in any flavour. Overall, I enjoy all three flavours probably equally; I can never choose which to eat first out of the pack.

                Like any brand of crisps they aren't intended to be healthy, so they should only be consumed as part of a healthy diet. You are looking at 168 calories for a 32g bag. There is also approximately 9.8g of fat per bag (1.2g of which saturates).

                They are suitable for vegetarians. However they may contain egg, soya, mustard, wheat, barley and gluten.

                These are by far my favourite brand of crisps, especially for their flavour which I think is of higher quality than other brands. I would definitely recommend these crisps to everyone and they can be found in most food shops.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  highly recommend as a filling snack

                  McCoys crisps are a brand of thick cut, ridged crisps, that are produced exclusively for the Uk market by United Biscuits (one of the main multinational food manufacturers). McCoys have proved extremely popular since their introduction in 1985, and are marketed strongly towards the male half of the market. They have a wide range of flavours including salted, salt and malt vinegar, ham and mustard, flame grilled steak, cheddar and onion and bacon sizzler. As well as the individual packets, multipacks are also available in 6, 12, and 18 packs. Expect to pay around 0.60 for a single pack, and £2 for a 6 pack multi.

                  McCoys come in a foil packet, with McCoys stamped across the middle in white on a black background. The individual flavour is then shown underneath. McCoys should be stored in a cool dark place and (kept sealed) should stay in date for around two months.

                  A standard 35 gram bag of McCoys Salt and Malt Vinegar contains 175 calories with just over 10 grams of fat per bag (this seems to be about the average for all of the flavours). Obviously, as crisps, these aren't the healthiest things in the world. However, as long as they remain an occasional snack, McCoys are a filling treat.

                  McCoys are marketed very much towards the male end of the market, and this is reflected in the fact they are very thick cut, ridged, and crunchy, with direct flavours. I would rate McCoys as a favourite snack, due partly to the exceptionally light, crispy effect of the ridges, which combines with the thickness of each crisp to give a real sense that you are eating a 'real' potato based product. You won't enjoy these if you don't like very strong flavours, but other than that I highly recommend.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  King of Crisps!

                  I'm not a big fan of doing food reviews, but as a rare treat I've just bought myself a packet of Salt & Malt Vinegar McCoys crisps and just have to give them a review as they were delicious.

                  Now we all know that crisps aren't particularly good for you but the good people at McCoys are making an effort as they have just reduced the saturated fat content of their crisps by an impressive 30% compared to last year.

                  The beauty of McCoys crisps, in my opinion, is their chunky ridge cut shape. They somehow feel a little more filling than eating a packet of Walkers crisps or any other brand I can think of. It is because of their robust design that they have been marketed as "Man Crisps" and I'm sure the ultimate meal would be a packet of these with a Yorkie!

                  I have always thought that the flavour of McCoys crisps really set them aside from the other manufacturers. The Salt & Malt Vinegar flavour packs a real zing to it, the Flamed Grilled Steak tastes genuinely meaty and the Mexican Chilli is truly divine.

                  I certainly wouldn't advocate rushing out and buying a lorry full of crisps as they really aren't good for you but as an occasional treat, buy McCoys.

                    Go and stock up your larder!

                    For me, crisps are a very rare treat. I go the whole week without eating any sort of junk food whatsoever, and then all at once I'll eat 6 of these in one go. There are a couple of reasons why they are a great crisp.

                    First of all taste. Taste is the most important aspect to a crisp. The salt and vinegar is sharp (as it should be) and becomes an addiction for the tongue tingling sensation it brings. The cheddar and onion have a brilliant strong taste that is perfectly balanced. The salted are the only salted crisps I will eat. There's just something about them!

                    The shape and form of the crisp is something to be admire. The thick ridge-cut form that they take really makes the crisp. The grand majority of crisps (with the exception of hula hoops and twiglets maybe) are the standard crisp shape. These are too, but the ridges seem to give it that extra little kick.

                    The packaging is exciting. It's not a dull colour, but vibrant and catches your attention. The Writing is bold and clear, and it sticks out off the shelf.
                    The price is also very reasonable if you buy them in multipacks. I would advise against buying them individually if you want to save money.

                    One of my fave brands of crisps

                    McCoys are a brand of thick crinkle cut crisps that are very rich in flavour.

                    The crisps come in a range of flavours which are Salted, Salt & Malt Vinegar, Mexican Chilli, Barbecue Chicken, Ham And Mustard, Flame grilled Steak, Sizzling King Prawn, Cheddar And Onion, Thai Sweet Chilli, Oriental Ribs and Bacon Sizzler. So as you can see not the usual Salt & Vinegar or Cheese & Onion.

                    The flavours are very unique from other brands and the taste is rich in flavour, some more than others but I like the ones that have a really rich flavour, with ones lots of flavour on them, I usually save till last.

                    My favourite flavours are the Flame Grilled Steak and Salt & Malt Vinegar, I also like the Salted & King Prawn ones too.

                    The crisps are available in the standard 32g bags as single packets, in most shops & newsagents. You can also get 6 pack bags either as 'Classic 6 Pack' which has the classic Salted (Ready Salted), Salt & Malt Vinegar (Salt & Vinegar) and Chedder & Onion (Cheese & Onion) flavours, you can also get 6 packs of some of the more popular flavours including Salted, Salt & Malt Vinegar, Flame Grilled Steak, King Prawn and Chedder & Onion.

                    They are not always so cheap but ASDA & Tesco usually have them as a good deal or you can usually get them from Poundland or Poundworld, pack of 6 for just £1.

                    Best crisps.

                    Mccoys crisps are my favourite brand of crisps which are on the market today. There are many reasons for this so let me divulge a few.

                    The most important thing when picking a bag of crisps is the flavour. The flavour in these crisps are very strong, when they say it is cheddar and onion you are really getting the stong flavours of cheddar and onion. This is good because i think too many crisps are mellow and flavour and dont do anything. But no matter what the flavour of Mccoys the flavour really grabs you and let you know its there.

                    Next is the value for money, these crisps are normally around 10 or 15 p more expensive than a bag of walker. But you get so much more for your money, sometimes yo can eat a bag of walkers and not even realise that you have eaten at all. However when you eat a bag of Mccoys you know you have eaten as they fill you up leaving you more than satisfied until your next meal. I think you would need to eat 2 bags of walkers to get this feeling so in terms of value for money they are well worth the extra money.

                    There is not a great range of flavours of MCCOYS crisps compared to other brands of crisps which is about the only downside to these great crisps.

                    good value

                    Crisps and snacks are my way of life, I like to eat most food snacks, especially when at work and so I eat lots of chocolates, cakes, biscuits and crisps, and I snack all the time in between meals and for watching television.

                    These are man crisps as the advertisement says and I love them, they are nice and chunky and have ridges to hold the flavour, they are quite strong flavours and I bought 3 packets which were on offer for £1 and they were Salt and Malt, Cheddar Cheese and Onion and Ready Salted flavours and so I bought 6 at the time but they also have Flame Grilled flavour but they did not have any available at the time in that flavour otherwise I would have preferred that one.


                    Each packet is 32g and I do not know how much the usual price is but I think it is around 49p but I cannot be certain as I usually buy either multi packs or when they are on offer at the price I paid for the 3.

                    McCoy's crisps are manufactured by a company called KP snacks and they do lots of different variety of crisps that are also popular.

                    These are brilliant for packed lunches or picnics or for snacks after school for the children but I love to leave some in my car for when I am travelling and can snack on them as they are very filling.

                    They are a very satisfying crisp and I think if you have not tried them before go and buy yourself and your family a bag or a multi pack and you will not be disappointed.

                    My brother phoned to the other day and mentioned that there are a limited addition of some other flavours called Pub Grub and they are Lamb and Mint and Roast Beef and Horseradish but I have not tried them myself but he said they are absolutely delicious so I am going to see if I can buy some myself to try them.

                    I rate these crisps 5 stars.
