McCoy’s, the UK’s number one ridged crisp, is continuing its mission of delivering full-on flavour with the launch of new McCoy’s Fiery Steak, a spectacular face-off between meat and heat
The launch is inspired by the iconic McCoy’s Steak flavour with a bold punch of heat to spice up the nation’s favourite snacking occasions. 2020 marks 35 years of McCoy’s Flame Grilled Steak and KP Snacks wanted to fire up this iconic flavour to give consumers more choice and excitement.
Flavour is the number one purchase driver in the crisps and snacks category
