    My favourite are the Aldi crinkle cut oven chips, I cook them a few minutes longer than recommended and they come up lovely.

    McCain Gastro chips for me. I hated oven chips but these have totally converted me.

    I tried them once and can't say I was sold on them, they seemed to take forever (maybe because they are big) to cook.


    I do like Mccain Home Chips. I also dont stick to 1 brand or style as I mix it up. I only have an oven so the french fries are either cooked too much or not enough. Mccain rustic fries are ok.

    Give the new Lidl Steak chips a try. Coated chips but thier size is about 1/4 inch in height, twice that in width and any length up to 4 inches long. As they are less chunky they cook better.

    But the good thing is these chips only cost 99p for 1.5kg.

    I'm know I'm going against the flow here but I actually think chips are one of the very few foods where the better quality processed pre-packed version actually tastes better than the home made version.

    Which is why I no longer buy them
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
