* The Real McCoys *

Advantages: Great Flavour , Good Price
Disadvantages: None

On a recent shopping trip to Sainsburys, I was feeling rather peckish and therefore I was looking for something that I could eat on the way home. As I searched the 'crisps' aisle , my eyes were snatched by an 'offer' sign. "2 for £1.50" it read , I looked ...

McCoy's Salt & Malt Vinegar

Advantages: Delicious!
Disadvantages: Quite a few calories!

There's salt and vinegar crisps...and then there's McCoy's Salt & Malt Vinegar. Accept no imitation. The Pringle is of course, addictive. The Walker is of course an old favourite. But the McCoy is the 'man crisp'... The familiar ridged style crisp is a ...

How novel - a bag of crisps that's heavier than air!

Advantages: rounded flavour that isn't too salty, very crunchy, lots of flavour

The Crisp to End All Crisps

Advantages: Packed with flavour, the crisps are large and dense
Disadvantages: Many bags are almost completely flavourless, costs a penny or two more than rival brands

McCoy's Salt & Malt Vinegar crisps are the one bag of crisps I'd request if I was on death row for my crimes against potatoes. There's so much flavouring on each crisp that after three or four bags in a row your tongue starts burning. I've found, howeve ...
