Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Tesco Chicken Bites Confirmed sighting: Tesco Chicken Bites
Posted: 18:08 Sat 14-Jul-2012. Price: 99p per bag; 3 "snacksize" bags currently on offer for 2! (60g each = 180g total). Location: Tesco - Ready to Eat. Sub-flavours: BBQ (tested); Roast Chicken (pictured); Hot and Spicy; Southern Fried. Nutritional unusualness: 100% chicken breast, bit of oil, flour and starchy stuff - 3.4g fat, 105 calories, 2.9g sugar.
Sorry for the delay on these, they were oddly tricky to photograph - though thanks to "Marc Carran" for providing a glimpse into his internal monologue, as he reports: "Points of Interest... Bag size: Perhaps it could replace a bag of Crisps? And it's far healthier?"

"It doesn't taste like Chicken: 'Ready to Eat' - It's gonna be chopped up a bit and have a few add-on ingredients to make it a bit more convenient, but that doesn't mean they are bad!"

"But... they are quite more-ish! There's not enough in the bag, and 3 bags will go quick!"

"That's... 10.2 grams of fat! That's 2! Couldn't you get better for the price?"

"Sure you can, but the milkshake aisle is round the corner, they do go well with anything, after all, it's just a snack... :)"

...Anyway, in other vaguely avian conversations: "Definitely one of the best Pot Noodles I've tried" is Foodstuff Finds' verdict on Jamaican Jerk Pot Noodle; Deli 24 have diversified into these slippery square rectangular chicken sausages that actually taste pretty good; and Burger King are still celebrating their fellow monarch's recent Diamond Jubilee with the bravely authentic Coronation Chicken Royale, there crediting the original recipe to Miss Rosemary Hume [MOU1][MOU1], which is either some text markup gone wrong or a royal honour that I wasn't previously aware of.

Comment: Surprised there aren't any big franchises selling sweet potato crisps.

Comment: Doh forgot to mention this in the main article: most big Tescos sell bags of 10x hot chicken wings for around £1, which is pretty good value by comparison
