That's a muddy good deal

Good deal. Have some heat.

Great deal - just picked some up after seeing this post. Thanks.

Where can I get a potato that poops chips? Such a good Idea!!!

These are a great deal, looks like I'm off to Morrisons tonight

Are they decent quality for chippy?

Regarding being able to chip them, pot luck I am afraid, I have had some bags which have plenty of Spuds in that are more than big enough to chip, and then some bags where you are lucky to get roast Spuds out of them, good offer though, but we are lucky where we live close to a farm shop who sell the big full size bags often at £4 a sack

What variety are these?

In the past some of the varieties they have had included
Maris Piper
Sapphire
Electra
Sylvana
Charlottes

The sack I got today were the safari variety.

We tried a bag of these, about a third of the potatoes in the sack had been badly gouged by the harvesting machine. They'd have been classed as 'seconds' by a greengrocer.

Not voting either way, but we wouldn't buy again.

Saw these today. Great deal for the bigger family that eat a skip load of carbs. We would never get our way through this load so will stick to the smaller fresher bags.

Heat though for others

It is true. I had the same problem.

potatoes go green way to soon these days back when 25kg would last for weeks if not months.mind you storing them in a net bag under supermarket lighting cant help.

There's nothing wrong with these potatoes. Sure they sprout after awhile so does the nicely clean fancy bagged ones and they aren't over marked or damaged and all you do with a bruised/ marked potato is cut that bit out. For £2 you can't go wrong.

Always made good roasties, chips and mash. Heat of course!

Month after month Morrisons sell these at £2.00 so when are they ever £4.00? Perhaps it's on Sunday late for half an hour.

These potatoes are ****, they become mushy after 5 minutes of boiling. They can only be used for a low quality mush

Just a comment on their stupid Match & More card, I have more valuable things to do with my time than to find out if another store is selling something cheaper than Morrisons just to get a few points that look a lot on paper ( £1 = 1,000 Points.) but have such little value when you come to spend them.

Can confirm I saw these at the local last night. I hate cleaning the potatoes even when I buy the washed ones so I had to pass on these.
You get some sort of scratch or draw card if you buy from morrisons now. Don't use the self checkout whenever there is those promotions in Morrisons. They never give it to you unless you queue for a cashier.

Bit of a generalisation there. Perhaps some do , they use at least 6 different varieties so not all mash down depends on which you pick up in your local store,
Just need to read the variety first like with the smaller bags.
Amazes me how people can knock these at 16p per kg when the smaller bags are usually four times that.

Can people that have purchased these, have a look on the bag & let me know what potatoes are in them please as its a bit of a drive to my nearest Morrisons.
Bought these twice, 1st ones Maris piper so good all round, last time were Charlotte, were ok but a bit small, more of a new potatoe. Thanks guys & dolls

No that is a lot of chips for £2
