Feasters Premium Burger Flame Grilled Deluxe with Bacon & Cheese

Published on July 1st, 2018 Feasters
4 out of 5

This is that rarity of burger: it comes with everything. Most microwave burgers are missing some element – ketchup, or cheese, a bit of bite. This Feasters Premium burger has you covered. Not quite as sickly as the Double Stack Cheeseburger, although the bacon is predictably a little on the flabby side. It really needs… [Read More]

ASDA Tandoori Chicken Masala

As you can see, very much on the oily side. Tasted nice enough though, and with a hint more smokiness than a chicken tikka masala would have had. The container is reusable as well as recyclable – you can store your leftovers in it with the resealable lid. Handy! Would have again.  

Riya’s Haryali Chicken Ready Meal

RRP of £3.30 is a little on the high side – would appreciate it more around the £2.50 mark. Plenty of chicken, and a tasty sauce, if over-generous with the salt. Looks very hearty and green – not spinach as you might expect, but coconut and mint (therefore quite mild too). Packaging a little annoying,… [Read More]

Nice and meaty chicken. Toasted bun is wonderful. Mayo gives it a good creaminess. Got it on offer – £1.05. Can’t go far wrong!

Weight Watchers Lincolnshire Sausage & Root Vegetable Mash

Seriously impressive that this is under 300 calories. Portion size looks about the same as any microwave meal and it looks pretty tasty! The root vegetable mash is pretty good and the sausages have a nice processed texture to them, and the ingredients look good. But man alive, this gravy is watery and flavourless. Such… [Read More]

ASDA Lively Firecracker Chicken and Fragrant Rice

Only 3 pieces of chicken, though they’re big chunks. 1 of your five a day- that’s good. The sauce has quite a kick to it. And the rice isn’t particularly “fragrant”. Meh.

The Original Patty Co. Jerk Chicken Patty

Published on March 5th, 2018

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]

Feasters Bacon Roll

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]
