McCain Home Chips Challenge

McCain Home Chips Challenge

Fish and Chips is a traditional British meal, however not one we indulge in often with me being fussy. I only like cod, but it can't smell fishy or have skin on it. As for chips, I like them, very convenient but again I don't like them if they are dry or greasy, so out goes the chip shop. If we have chips at home they are either from the Chinese or home cooked. At home we generally fry fresh potatoes but sometimes have frozen chips for convenience.
We have recently been reviewing some McCain Home Chips. We have had McCain chips previously but not for a while, I was eager to see how they tasted so we planned a meal with them; Somerset Chicken. We fetched out a portion of chips for each of us, on the packaging it says they can be grilled or oven baked - of course healthy options. We placed some in the oven, but as I'm fussy and don't like waste I had mine fried. We then sat down to eat our meals. The McCain chips were very crispy on the outside but light and fluffy on the inside. As I had mine fried from being fussy I decided to try one of Jack's oven baked chips. The McCain Chips were a lot tastier that others I have previously had oven cooked. Infact, I was a little jealous I didn't opt for the healthier option. They were the same taste as my fried ones without the un-healthiness of being fried. Normally I don't like over chips as they are very dry and often tasting nothing like chips.

The McCain Home Fries Straight Cut are thick cut chips and when cooked remain the larger size. As a family we  enjoyed the McCain home chips and we will definitely be purchasing them again. The large bag we were sent did 5 adult portions and 2 small portions for Jack and this retails around £3.30 per bag.
I would definitely recommend McCain home chips to others as a healthy alternative to take-out chips. McCain of a variety of different cuts.
