Rather hard no matter how long you cook them

2 stars

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

3 stars

Tasteless convenience nothing to else to say...

Soggy!

1 stars

Hot soggy chips! Add salt and ketchup, still nothing like chips! Disappointing

Easy microwave chips

5 stars

Easy and tasty enough, microwave chips with an adequate portion per box.

Good chips, bad packaging.

4 stars

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

1 stars

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

Poor value

2 stars

Too few chips, too expensive and result very mediocre.

Increased use of plastics in their product

1 stars

It was bad enough that McCain wrapped these up in plastic to begin with but now, despite all the plastic destroying our environment and arguments against it's use they have actually increased it!!! They now not only wrap their packs of four in plastic but also individual ones within their plastic packaging that they never used to!!! Increasing the use of plastics puts me off a manufacturer completely - trust me I will NEVER buy these again while they are sold this way.

Quick chips.

4 stars

Must admit I was not expecting much from microwave chips but these were surprisingly nice. A sprinkle of salt and a dash of vinegar and a nice snack indeed. Not as many chips as you'd get from a chippy but for the price a good buy. Dropped a star as they are a little limp.
