Weight Watchers Lincolnshire Sausage & Root Vegetable Mash

Mar 16 2018

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

Mar 9 2018

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

Mar 5 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

Mar 2 2018

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

Feb 26 2018

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

Feb 23 2018

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]

Attack a Snak Chicken ‘n Cheese BBQ

Attack a Snak

These are a taste of my childhood*. * not really – we were too cheap for these – but THERE’S A CHEESE STRING!! We used to have cheese strings! Two wraps, four thin slices of chicken, a cheesestring and a squirt of BBQ sauce. It was quite a fun, nostalgic snack, and for £1.50 I… [Read More]

Feasters Southern Fried Chicken Burger

Feb 12 2018

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.

Port Royal Jamaican Beef Patty

Feb 5 2018

Quick and cheerful, this is a decent sized snack for 85p. Clear cooking instructions, minimal packaging, maximum ease. Putting it on the plate to microwave, it looks a bit thin – what you want to see is a patty packed with meat. 1 minute in the microwave, and the pastry comes out a bit damp… [Read More]

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
