They were on offer for £2 in Morrisons back in September!

I cooked them in the actifry and found them good but YMMV!

These are great - don't over cook them though!
Great buy - heat added.

Saw these @ this price earlier this week but I much prefer the normal version.

Did these the other night and burned them.

Instead of calling these 'quick cook' why not be honest and call them 'marginally faster cook'.

What exactly have they done to make this cook faster than the regular ones? The packaging doesn't say anything.

The're cooked longer during production.

Had these last night and they turned out soggy. Going back to normal ones.

I had these issues before oven cooking them, I found the Actifry is well suited to these as they cook "quicker" and the Actifry takes longer than the oven anyway. Not much help if you don't have an Actifry sorry

Excellent deal. I'm not sure why some people are having trouble cooking these though. 5 minutes at 220c in a fan oven and I've never had a problem with the fries coming out quite crispy. Perhaps try pre-heating the oven and getting it to temperature first?

They work great in the far superior Philips AirFryer though.

The come out brilliant in the oven but even better in the actifry, very tasty

These are superb out of an oven when not overcooked. i have actually swapped from the mighty boring britchip to these. Some of the comments here are straight out of Ed Millipede land and are just garbage. I am waiting for someone to complain that they are not halal...

Ordered 5 packs thanks - I have been looking for these in my local supermarkets since we ran out. I haven't been able to find any stock so now I am very happily stocked up!! These are great chips IMO.

Quidco snap cashback expires tomorrow. I snapped mine yesterday and they have already paid!

Can only redeem once though.

These barely cook any quicker than normal oven chips and really don't taste nice either. They have a texture like it's reconstituted potato - not recommended at all.
