Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McCoy's Limited Edition Pub Gub Roast Beef and Horseradish Confirmed sighting: McCoy's Limited Edition Pub Grub Roast Beef and Horseradish
Posted: 16:37 Sun 06-Dec-2009. Price: 1.00/ assorted 6 pack. Location: Morrisons, Peckham. Sub-flavours: Lamb and Mint, and "another I can't remember".
I think I've also glimpsed McCoy's Twisted on the shelves somewhere (in Salt and Malt Vinegar with Chilli, or Cheddar and Onion with Jalapeno), or it's possible that the "other" Pub Grub flavour might be from the winter 2006 incarnation. Anyway, "Tina Gray" reports: Six bags for a pound is amazing value... nice, thick 'n' crunchy. The roast beef and horseradish taste like roast beef and mustard. I need to find out whether the roast lamb and mint flavour are suitable for a vegan to eat? Anyone know... please?

...Sorry "Tina", I was going to suggest checking the ingredients, but then had a similar dilemma with Tyrrells' slightly odd-tasting Turkey and Chestnut Stuffing (1.17/150g in Waitrose) and Honey Roast Ham and Cranberry varieties (though this did reveal that the honey roast ham and cranberry flavouring contained vegetarian whey powder, raspberry powder, liquorice powder and blueberry flakes).

Or, in other semi-Christmassy savouries, I don't know what Kettle Chips are trying to get at with their Roasted Tomato and Basil Seasonal Edition, or why Subway haven't gone for actual turkey in their back-from-last-year "Add cranberry sauce for a festive flourish" Chicken and Stuffing Sub, especially now even Tesco are jumping on the 1.99 microwaveable baguette bandwagon.
