The Original Patty Co. Jerk Chicken Patty

Published on March 5th, 2018
4 out of 5 See all 4-star reviews

Smells of BBQ. Very sweet aroma. Pastry holding up a lot better than the previous patty we reviewed. Very strong herb flavour, like an over-the-top lamb tagine. Quite a perfumey experience. Not unpleasant as such, but definitely hits you. Pleasant kick of chilli in the aftertaste. Reasonably well filled. Good ratio of filling to pastry…. [Read More]

Chewy, hard base. 2 rashers of slightly flabby bacon. 1 sachet of ketchup. Easy and cheap. The bread is the real let-down here. 3*

Mumtaz Chicken Tikka Masala

Decent amount of chicken, but not overwhelming. Reasonably tender but I’ve had better. Quite oily, and a little on the expensive side. Tastes good and authentic, but a little overpriced for what it is.

Weight Watchers Italian Chicken Lasagne

As you can see, this became a watery mess. That would be ok if it was an indulgent wateriness, but it really wasn’t. I’ve tasted more cheese at a vegan’s banquet. I’m sure a dirtier metaphor exists if you want to spice up the review. Speaking of spice, the odd mushed up chicken filling has a… [Read More]

ASDA Slimzone Sausage & Boston Bean Bake

This from-frozen ready meal packs in a mighty 3 of your 5 a day of vegetables. I didn’t know that when I bought it, but I am very pleasantly surprised! What more nutrition could a hungry student need? Oh but there must be a downside! Are they vegan sausages or something? *checks the packet* 89% pork!!… [Read More]

Kershaws Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas

Published on September 13th, 2013
3 out of 5 See all 3-star reviews

At first sight, this looks promising, and looks as though it really could be the fish and chip shop experience from the comfort of one’s own home. In anticipation I sprinkled salt, added vinegar and squirted ketchup to accompany what was, I hope, going to be a nice meal. The mushy peas are pretty good,… [Read More]

Aldi Sausage and Mash

At 89p, very cheap. Impressive what you can get! The sausages have a nice Cumberland flavour, though are gritty in places. They’re quite generously sized, given the cost of the meal. The potato is surprisingly buttery and creamy, though the appearance and texture is very manufactured. What lets the meal down is, surprisingly, the onion… [Read More]

Iceland Beef Stew and Dumplings

Tasty, succulent beef, although the pieces are meagre in size and there aren’t many of them. I also found myself chewing on a huge piece of gristle, which wasn’t a nice surprise. The carrots and crisp enough and sweet, very nice. I found the dumplings to be quite inconsistent – soggy to the point of… [Read More]

Iceland Ultimate Snacks Meatball Subroll

The bread is soft, soggy and chewy, and my first bite split the sub in two, making a very difficult and messy snack. The meatballs are far too soft and instantly instil distrust as to their contents. They taste pleasant enough and have the flavour of a bolognese mince, but where’s the texture?! The sauce… [Read More]

Hunger Breaks Hot Pots “Texas” Beef Chilli & Rice

Published on March 12th, 2018 Hunger Breaks

Nice and convenient – microwaves in under two minutes, no difficult assembly. Long lasting. The meal is mostly sauce, with bits of rice and small fragments of mince in it. It’s very wet. You’ll use a spoon for this. The sauce itself has a spicy chilli kick. Tastes like a perfectly respectable chilli. Shame there’s… [Read More]

Batchelors Deli Box Pasta: Cheese & Broccoli

3 out of 5 See all 3-star reviews

A little disappointing on first appearance – not much pasta here. But when you add the water and leave it, it does expand to be something more substantial. That said, hard to know where to fill the water to – the fill line is on the outside. The pasta ends up a little chewy –… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Bacon Brunch

Potato doesn’t brown like the picture suggests. The bacon pieces are few and far between, and when you actually fork a piece, turn out to have a spammy taste. The potato is bland and uninteresting, given little flavour by the butter that smothers it. Filling, but not fabulous value for money. As already mentioned, bacon… [Read More]

Tesco Value Pasta in a Tomato and Onion Sauce

Word of warning- takes an age to cook! I wanted a quick meal before my lecture, but this requires 15 minutes in the microwave- I had to return to it afterwards. Decent portion size, but the tomato sauce is a bit sweet, sickly, and bland. This tastes just like plain pasta with a little bit… [Read More]

Disappointing. 24% potato and 8% spinach makes you wonder what the rest of it really is, and the answer appears to be water. Bland, uninteresting, watery. Where’s the creaminess? Where’s the spinach? Other negatives include the underdone potatoes and the £1.80 approximate price tag. Still, it wasn’t dreadful, so avoids receiving our worst rating.
