Morrisons Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni

Dec 21 2017

Very creamy and decadent. For me, the spinach is a little too long and stringy and would have benefited from being blended first. There is too much emphasis on the cream and not enough on the cheese- I like a flavoursome, browned cheese on the top; this cannelloni didn’t deliver. *Review from May 2013

Feasters Cheese Burger

Dec 21 2017

Like its double-stacked brethren, this is quick, easy, tasty, good value. And unlike the double stack “cheeseburger”, this one’s separated it out as “cheese burger”. Make up your minds, Feasters! OCD aside, I can’t really fault these burgers. I’d happily have them again and again. For a 5* review, they’d have to be positively gourmet…. [Read More]

Tesco Meal For One; Sweet & Sour, Chinese Chicken Curry

Dec 17 2017

I was impressed when I picked this out for £2 at my local Tesco. It felt big and heavy. I actually had to read the packaging to confirm that yes, it is a meal for one, and I could legitimately pig out on this without any feelings of guilt or remorse. When I got it… [Read More]

Feasters Hot Dog

Dec 12 2017

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]

Tesco Katsu Chicken Curry

Dec 9 2017

Deliciously crispy chicken coating, with moist chicken breast. Jasmine rice is the perfect level of stickiness and complements the meal well. A good katsu curry. The downside is that the chicken has to be cooked in the oven for twenty minutes. Bit of a faff.

ASDA Chicken Korma Main

Nov 18 2017

Suitable for freezing – which I did – but no “heat from freeze” instructions, so have to defrost first. Not much flavour beyond “creamy”. You could argue that of any korma, but there’s not a hint of cardamom or cumin or other mild spices. Still, it’s pleasant, and there’s a lot of chicken. The packaging… [Read More]

Feasters Premium Double Stack Cheeseburger

Nov 8 2017

Burger offered two methods of cooking – microwave the whole thing, or microwave the burgers and toast the buns. In the interests of fairness I should probably have gone for the former, for a fair test against the Rustlers brand. But in the interests of my taste buds, I went all out and separated those… [Read More]

Morrisons Fresh Ideas Chipotle Beef Chilli

Jul 30 2013

Tasty. Classic Mexican flavours. The torilla chips soften, which is a disappointment, but is to be expected. Lots of rice, not an awful lot of mince. I enjoyed this meal, but considering the meagre rations of meat and cheese and the abundance of rice, this isn’t worth the £2.50 I paid (and this was supposedly… [Read More]

Morrisons Fresh Ideas King Prawn Linguine

Jul 22 2013

The tomato-packed sauce ends up being watery, the king prawns tough and chewy and the basil undetectable. This is reasonable in terms of its taste, but unreasonable in terms of its cost. Not particularly filling, and far too expensive given the cost and quality of the ingredients. Not flavoursome enough nor exciting enough. A bit… [Read More]

McEnnedy Cheese-burger 2 Chicken Cheeseburgers

Jul 18 2013

Really nice to see REAL cheese, not the plastic orange stuff you normally get in microwave cheeseburgers. The chicken burger is hardly chicken breast- look at the texture and you’ll see an odd fusion of textures reminiscent of bread, pancakes or egg. The result is an artificial firmness that has the taste of chicken but… [Read More]
