I note that the report is from their "East of england correspondent". Presumably nothing is happening in the east of england, so she had to write something to fill in her slot

I noticed this with Mcains Homefries chips.

I have always bought 2.35 kilo bags (about a ton for us imperial peeps).
They were always marked up as being the Bigger Better Value Bag and cost about £2.50 but were often on offer at £2
The smaller bag, about a kilo, made no such claim and was cheaper.
Now the biggest bag they sell is 1.8 kilo, it claims to be a bigger bag and better value (an outright lie) and costs £3.30

Try peeling a few spuds Volty I think you will find they are still cheaper and more tasty.

I peel plenty of spuds Phil, then I roast them.
The Homefries can be fried but are also good for putting in the oven, which is the way I use them.
I don't know how to make oven chips from spuds, and I don't like the smell of a fryer.

Volty

Then nick down the local chippy, but don't go to a Macdonalds or Kentucky Fried outlet and get the pre cooked blanched and coated rubbish.
