Wow that's cheap, are they past the consume after freeze date period or something?
Just cos other chip-lovers will be reading this thread, can I ask a question?

Last year (or thereabouts) whenever McCain invented their 'new recipe, better tasting' versions of these ... did they totally destroy them or is it just me?

Ever since then, all I've managed to make are soggy and anaemic looking, even taking the temperature up and extending the cooking time. Whereas (In my opinion of course) the old ones always came out crunchy and, although never competing with a real chip, they were the best oven chip around.

I'm just wondering if others noticed this, or if I suddenly developed an inability to cook chips in an oven (two ovens now as we even replaced the oven... some may say that's a bit extreme for a chip but there were other reasons ).

I must see if I have forgotten how to make a slice of toast or boil an egg

Back on topic... yep, hot, about 200 I'd say...

I've always thought McCains chips were terrible anyway but agree with you. I always buy cheap frozen chips because they are usually nicer.

While we are on the subject of chips especially ones like McCains, why do they state chips will cook in 25 mins but take usually about 40 mins I don't think it's just us

its because they down-sized from 1.5kg to 1.36kg,so probably just clearing the larger old stock

Totally ruined.

Best frozen chips around atm in my humble opinion as a chubby are the Iceland range 1.2kg for £1.50 crinkle or straight cut (more like takeaway fries rather than chips)
Albert Bartlett frozen chips are very nice, they actually taste potatoey ... I think most chips taste of nothing or the oil they’re coated in, Albert’s taste like a chip should taste!!

Frozen chips always take longer than stated you might aswell put them on in the morning for tea that night

Cheers, will give them a go. Sainsburys & ASDA it is then as I see they don't stock in Tescos. Tesco have become shockingly bad for choice. We'd been using the Aunt Bessies as a replacement for the McCains when we go to Sainsburys, but they're not stocked in Tesco. Apparently you can request an item is stocked but not via email, it's branch specific and you have to remember to go and fill in a form at Customer Service, because it's still the 1990s there.

Up to near 300 degrees now, they will be nice and crispy!

Albert Bartlett chips have converted me from a "oven chips are horrible & nothing like proper chips", to "These are LOVELY"

Think I'll have try these Albert chips
Put these in the air fryer a few weeks ago. Nandos peri salt on. They were pretty close to the ones you buy in the restaurant.
And i thought 77p was good value for these. Heat added
