In the stores here that is.

Yesterday I saw a advert or commercial for Mccains potato filled smilies faces. I have never seen McCains in the stores over here before... have they been around a while or is it a new arrival to the US?

Either way I WILL be buying some when I see them. Mmmm could eat a potato waffle too.

Mccains, thought that was a US company...they have oven fries and all sorts...only thing they don't have is the microwave chips, garlic bread, chicken wings and whatever else microwavable there was in the UK.

I asked my hubby after the ad came on TV... He had never heard of McCains... I have never seen them over here either but I mostly food shop at Meijers so maybe that is a brand they just don't carry.

I think theyre pretty new over here, we saw them in a Smart Choices ready meal with sweetcorn and something or other just before Christmas and then they started advertising them. Was never really that keen on them in the UK but if they help smaller children eat their veggies I guess therye not all bad.

Haven't seen the smiley faces, but our local shoppers sells the mccains oven fries and crinkle fries, the oven fries are not quiet the same as the UK ones.
