Iceland Special Fried Rice

Nov 15 2012

The rice has no flavour. You can see the prawns and pork but can hardly taste them. Not a tasty rice at all- merely a filling one. Do not expect this to constitute a meal in itself. It is only suitable to be eaten alongside something that disguises its own blandness. Also pictured is the Iceland… [Read More]

Traders Chicken Curry

Look at the picture- first impressions aren’t good! I had this with rice (not pictured). Horrible, chemical taste, heavily perfumed, eurgh. Not a pleasant colour- dark, unnatural. Quite spicy. The odd bit of potato and carrot here and there, and even less in the way of chicken. The chicken pieces are small and difficult to… [Read More]

Fray Bentos Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

Sep 29 2012

I dipped my fork in the sauce and tasted it- it wasn’t bad. This gave me hope! The meatballs were still horrid, but didn’t make me gag.

The chicken is soft but quite dry. Saying that, these are nice big pieces of chicken, quite good value. The sauce has a potent aftertaste, quite perfumey and unpleasant- I genuinely had to double-check and see if my tin was in date. It didn’t help that there was a dark black stain at the bottom… [Read More]

Heritage Chicken in Black Bean Sauce with Egg Fried Rice

Very salty- the sauce was a struggle to eat here. Apalling packaging. This is one of those ready meals that has two layers of film, none of which peel off nicely, either before or after heating. This means making an absolute mess and potentially burning yourself by slicing a square of film off the packaging… [Read More]
