McCoy’s- Flame Grilled Steak


(I took this picture while walking out of a Tesco Express.  Classy)

First of all, I must apologize for being derelict in my junkfood duties.  I’ve been eating junk food, as I am wont to do, but I haven’t haven’t posted my reviews.  My first post-hiatus review is for another meat-flavored snack.  My first impression of McCoy’s Flame Grilled Steak chips was “beef flavored ramen noodles.”  I happen to like beef-flavored ramen noodles, so this wasn’t huge a con.  However, I’m not totally sold on chips coated in that flavor.  One thing about these chips that amused me is that it’s there’s a “supersize” alternative which features more ridges.  I do find the ridges on these chips strangely appealing, as if my mouth recognizes and appreciates their structural integrity.  I don’t know if I’d really derive more pleasure from beef-flavored chips with even bigger ridges.  At that point, I think I’d just eat actual meat.  On a related note, I was thinking of bringing jerky to work as a snack, but then I wondered if people would think I was some sort of paleo lumberjack (not that there’s anything WRONG with that!).  I assume they sell jerky here- it’s probably in the smoked fish area.  I definitely can’t bring smoked fish to work as a snack because I don’t want to be banish’d.  That would be a one-way ticket to office pariah.  Maybe there’s a smoked-fish flavored chip.  I would not be surprised.

In other news, my keyboard greasiness level is out of control.  I need to stop writing and eating at the same time.
