Given the sheer size of this pot (and the name, “The Big One”, which is a promise it had better well keep), I was disappointed to open the lid and find only a small mound of noodles at the bottom. I had a choice of 3 fill levels depending on how thin I wanted my… [Read More]
Sausages are bland, bready and tasteless. The batter is a bit crunchy on top and doughy underneath. Disappointing.
I saw these in the freezer section of my local Tesco and had to give them a try. 25-30 mins in the oven, and these little pale pillows of goodness fluff up into some awesome looking crispy pastries. The problem began when I cut into one. There’s an immense air packet inside each one; the… [Read More]
“Fill to 15mm from brim and boiling water. Stir thoroughly”. As you can see, it doesn’t apply to my Mr Handsome mug. This ended up being a weird soupy broth for my pasta, which somehow managed to stay crunchy despite the ocean of hot water each pasta tube was now sitting in. I was hungry,… [Read More]
Very big – I waited until a friend was visiting before deciding to cook this, so I at least had someone to share with. And that was possible because this has a 2 month shelf life. Two options for cooking: microwave, or fry. Wanting the full experience, we opted for fry. Already brown before it… [Read More]
Nice and simple to cook. One minute, flip it over, another minute, done. The bread comes out seemingly soft and pillowy, and you think it’ll be good. Don’t trust it; it becomes rubbery and dry in your mouth once you start chewing. The two solitary chunks of chicken look quite sad in the bun, and… [Read More]
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]
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]
Dry as anything. The burger isn’t wide enough, so there’s a large portion of bread around the rim. The burger itself is also super dry and bready. Very peppery like it’s disguising something. Mayonnaise helps a bit.
Looks kind of off-putting when you take it out of the packaging. All sweaty, like. But I guess hot dogs are universally disgusting anyway. Smells good when it’s cooked. Ketchup & mustard are both provided. The bun comes out all chewy, making this difficult to eat without making a mess or screaming that the roof… [Read More]
