Heinz Weight Watchers Mushroom & Broccoli Wedge Melt

Jul 24 2013

A surprisingly cheesy sauce, given this is Weight Watchers. Quite nice. Not much of a mushroom flavour, and the potato wedges are a bit dry. Not bad for £1-£1.50, don’t pay anything more.

Heinz Big Saucy Bangers

Jun 8 2013

I was very pleasantly surprised with this. I expected to be paying through the nose for the big brand name with no discernible difference in quality to justify it. I was wrong. Unlike practically every tinned sausage I’ve eaten, these actually taste authentic. They’re a decent size, have a healthy wrinkle on them (unlike the… [Read More]

Heinz Taste of Home Indulgent Chocolate Pudding

Mar 25 2013

The most complicated microwave instructions ever! Bigger pudding than expected, always a nice surprise. The texture is surprisingly light, a bit powdery, and sticks to the teeth. Nice chocolate sauce. Really this serves two, and that’s coming from a pudding-loving 20 year old male. Not a fabulous pudding, and fairly overpriced.

Heinz Farmers’ Market Broccoli + Stilton Soup

Nov 7 2012

The cheese and the broccoli come through very strongly. Finally, a soup that doesn’t taste like every other cup-a-soup! Not overly blended- nice little bits of potato and onion here and there. Tasty, nutricious. Beware this is stilton cheese, and tastes like it. Don’t expect cheddar! Lovely, powerful, mature cheese, which isn’t too strong for… [Read More]

Heinz Spicy Tomato and Pepperoni Sauce with Fusilli

Nov 2 2012

Distinctly underwhelming portion size. Nice smell of pepperoni. Kind of like having just the pepperoni and tomato sauce of a pizza. Real pieces of pepperoni, but not many. Probably cost all of 30p to make. Feel a bit ripped off. Quite a spicy sauce, slight kick at the back of the throat after each mouthful…. [Read More]

Heinz Big Soup – Roast Chicken and Herb Dumplings

Apr 27 2012

Lovely idea, but the bowl the soup came in was making some very ominous noises in the microwave, and subsequently there was some leakage, so this wasn’t the easiest of ready meals to prepare. The bits of chicken are dry and dark brown, not very inspiring. The soup itself is passable, but has that generic… [Read More]

Heinz Creamy Mushroom & Red Pepper Sauce

Mar 12 2012

Very gloopy texture, very tomatoe-y. A dish like this can’t really go wrong, but there’s nothing special here. Portion size is a major disappointment- no more than a snack. Can’t detect any garlic, basil is nice though. Perfectly pleasant dish, but nothing spectacular. Serving suggestion: grate some cheese over the top. Though that kind of… [Read More]
