A Little Life Saver Thank You McCains!
I've no idea why there are so many bad reviews!. I'm allergic & intolerant to so many different foods that I find it incredibly hard to find something to eat. These are exactly what it says on the box, potatoes & Sunflower oil what's not to like. These are a life saver literally not only to people who have allergies & intolerance's but also to people who are ill & don't have the energy or feel too ill to cook oven chips. Or Disabled people who struggle using the cooker. I'm very pleased they have stopped using vegetable oil as I'm allergic to that but fine with sunflower oil. I have these for my lunch with cooked meats & goats cheese it's like a mini dinner. I cook them for 2.20 on highest heat & I've found none of the problems others have. I couldn't give a flying fishcake about the packaging sorry but when you have multiple illnesses, allergy's & intolerance's & you find something you can eat it's a miracle & packaging is not even on my radar. Perhaps wondering what the packaging is made of & how long it's going to be before degrading down or if the sea life is getting killed by it is something for the people who are not ill to worry about. While I'm here Tesco please can you stop putting other ingredients other than potato & sunflower oil on your frozen chips!. There is not one frozen chip or frozen potato product that I can eat as you have added other ingredients that I'm allergic or intolerant to.
Not a bad chip with after you add salt n pepper bu
Not a bad chip with after you add salt n pepper but shocked at how they can get away with so few in a box, not even enough to class as a side as had about 10 very small chips to each box.
Return to quality please
Since they changed the type of cooking oil they used from veg oil to sunflower oil,they have tasted like stale fish and cheap oil. Get back to using quality ingredients,then more people will buy them,thats if they are happy with15 chips in each box,some of them with black bits on them.
Rather hard no matter how long you cook them
Before I begin I want to address packaging. People are going mental over the plastic packaging. What did you expect? You've bought something with four individual packs and you know that at least will be wrapped in something. Plastic aside, that's four lots of cardboard and cardboard in many ways is more environmentally intensive. Buy a potato and CUT IT if you claim to be so environmentally responsible. It beggars belief you'd buy this product if you claim to care about packaging. As to the product, I rate it two stars as they are quite nasty and not like they used to be. I cooked them for the recommended time and they were partially frozen and quite hard. So I keep incrementing the time up. Now a full 40 seconds more and they are still quite hard. I can't recommend them now.
Tasteless convenience nothing to else to say...
Hot soggy chips! Add salt and ketchup, still nothing like chips! Disappointing
Easy microwave chips
Easy and tasty enough, microwave chips with an adequate portion per box.
Good chips, bad packaging.
I love these chips, the texture is not too stodgy and the portion size for me is just right. I have given four rather than five stars due to them now covering the individual packs in non recylable plastic film, which to me makes no difference to the freshness of the frozen product and tastes the same as before.
With the combination of Tesco and McCain trade nam
With the combination of Tesco and McCain trade names I cannot believe how they all got it so badly wrong. Tesco is boasting about its reduction in plastics policy. I saw nothing when buying two packs that warned me firstly of the pack outer plastic wrapper. Each single pack then has a base of thick plastic presumably so as to fry in the individual pack. OK so to the taste. Having followed very carefully the microwave instructions I was seriously disappointed at how dry they were - like a piece of dry bread. I tried to remedy this by one more min with some oil but it made no difference at all. Obviously I shall take them back to my Ely store for a full refund But how did Tesco get this so wrong? I assumed that all new products would have been tested and tasted. Perhaps the McCain brad name avoided this. Please now you Tesco buyers and store managers take some home and try them with your family. Regards. TW
Too few chips, too expensive and result very mediocre.
