Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McCoy's Bacon Sizzler Confirmed sighting: McCoy's Bacon Sizzler
Posted: 19:07 Sun 28-Feb-2010. Price: 71p for 6 pack. Location: Morrisons, Peckham. Sub-flavours: Part of a "Meaty 6" multipack.
"lyndsey broadhead" reports: I found these crisps the other day and I love them. They are definitely reminiscent of a number of bacon/ham crisps that are no longer on the market and are utterly great! They remind me of a Honey Roast Ham crinkle crisp that M and S used to do a few years ago but are also very bacony as well, taste very much of "bacon crisps of the past". If anyone knows where I can buy these by the case, or as single packs I'd be obliged. I really don't like the Thai Chicken ones that come in this multipack although the Steak ones are good.

...A super-descriptive sighting here from (I think) first-time spotter "lyndsey" - though Foodstuff Finds offers at least one alternative in the form of the Walkers Cheddar Cheese and Bacon (and Sour Cream and Chive) crisps that may already be replacing last year's Builder's Breakfast bonanza. While, in other sources of sodium, "Zeddy" paid 99p for some of those Levi Roots Reggae Reggae Peanuts and Cashews in Tesco, Lanark, lilting: "A most delicious find in Tesco today. Old Levi is certainly diversifying his portfolio. The mix of cashew and peanuts blends very well with the seasoning. They have the distinctive fruity flavour followed by the slow burn afterwards. A nice product that probably won't last long though due to lack of awareness on the public's part."

Comment: hey no problem Z, you went into a lot more detail than me - I just uploaded the photo 'cos I'd found a whole bunch of new bagged snacks in that Tesco that I hadn't seen anywhere else!

Comment: Although the Reggae Reggae Peanut mix was nice, they were also a little of a let-down. They weren't as crunchy as normal peanuts, almost like sauce had softened them. They were a nice snack though, and I'd advise anyone to try them at least once.

Comment: Are Cashews as crunchy as Peanuts, Phill? Might that be the reason?

Comment: Neither the Peanuts or Cashews felt crunchy. They reminded me of the Jamacian Spiced peanuts/cashews you can buy from some of those snack and sweet stands that used to be around the UK (I've not seen one in a while).

Comment: I would like to express my great disappointment at the way McCoys have ruined the brilliance of their Thai Chicken/Roast Beef/Ham & Mustard multipack. I purchased one of said multipacks today, unaware that my favourite Ham & Mustard had been tossed away for the insuperior Bacon Sizzler variety, which I can only assume is comfort for the masses who found the mustard too spicy for their palates. I commence a McCoy hunger strike today until our perfect multipack is restored to its past glory.

Yours disgusted,

Mr McAngry Edinburgh

Comment: I feel McCoys have ruined their crisps by lowering the saturated fat content. They used to be the best crisps on the market and now they are just dry.

Comment: Tried these last night and I like them. The bacon flavour is no different from any other smokey bacon crisp really, but the McCoy's crunch makes them verrrry nice.
