Goodbye Real McCoys – no more will I be able to scoff your delicious flavour ridge cut crisps in cheese and onion or tongue tingling salt and vinegar. No more hushed exchanges with the snack shop vendor at Baker Street tube station and a packet scoffed on two escalator rides… I digress.
While Walkers have announced a crisp packet recycling scheme (from last month snack fans can post used bags in envelopes for free to a recycling company) sadly the manufacturer of McCoys, KP Snacks, can still only comment that:
“Whilst much of the flexible film we use for snack packaging is technically recyclable, it’s not practically recyclable in the UK currently. “
Ah well in these dark, wintry (hungry) months probably a good thing for me.
