Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McCoy's Limited Edition Extreme Confirmed sighting: McCoy's Limited Edition Extreme
Posted: 22:03 Thu 09-Oct-2008. Price: 1.54/multipack. Location: Asda. Sub-flavours: Chicken Madras, Spicy Paprika, Red Hot Chilli.
"Taras" reports: A very bland offering from McCoy's. You'd think, based on their standard chilli flavour, that these would be a flavourful kick up the backside, but no dice. The packets warn "Extremely hot and spicy", but to be honest they're about 1/3 the spiciness of Flamin' Hot Monster Munch. I'd try to assess these on the chilli hotness scale but I'd imagine it wouldn't rate enough to be significant. Chicken Madras is the best of the three flavours. Stick with standard McCoy's.

..."Taras" returns after a near two-year absence to expand on a previous passing mention - but, in my defence, I have at least marvelled at the unusual plate and rotary pizza-cutter that accompanies the Pizza Express Theo Randall pizzas submitted by "Belinda", who declares herself: "Very excited, have had RSS feed for ages but FINALLY found something to submit - new pizzas at Pizza Express! (see below - copied and pasted from their website.) Bit disappointing to be honest so I just ordered my usual American Hot because you can get two-for-one on any main course (not just Theo Randall pizzas) with their online voucher."

"Theo's Piemontese - Yellow and red peppers with fresh oregano, garlic, red onions and mild, nutty fontal cheese. Seasoned with anchovies, tiny lilliput capers, and bursting with flavour. Theo's Tonnara - Named after the traditional Italian method of tuna fishing, this rustic pizza has a tomato and creme fraiche sauce, yellowfin tuna, nicoise olives, anchovies, garlic and lilliput capers. Theo's Gamberettini - A delicate marriage of brown shrimps and grated zucchini, with a [That's enough Theo Whoever-He-Is - Snackspot]."

Comment: I would disagree and say that the Red Hot Chilli are hotter than Flaming Monster Munch and tastier too. I cant comment on the other flavours as have not tried them.

I still favour Jonathan Crisp's Jalapeno Flavour though if you can find them!

Comment: Likewise, I disagree, I find the McCoys hotter than the MM product.

Overall this is a strong offering from McCoys and fills a gap in the market place (PS - whatever happened to Seabrooks Hot range - I saw them advertised in Grocer, but never saw on sale)

Comment: Flaming Hot Monster Munch can be fed to Ducks. The McCoys would set the pond alight (OK they won't but they are substantially hotter than the MM)
