Tesco Hearty Food Co: 4 Bean & Cheese Melts

Published on March 9th, 2019 Hearty Food Co

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]

Heinz Big Saucy Bangers

Published on June 8th, 2013

I was very pleasantly surprised with this. I expected to be paying through the nose for the big brand name with no discernible difference in quality to justify it. I was wrong. Unlike practically every tinned sausage I’ve eaten, these actually taste authentic. They’re a decent size, have a healthy wrinkle on them (unlike the… [Read More]

Oaktree Estate Baked Beans and Pork Sausages in tomato sauce

Published on April 19th, 2013 Oaktree Estate

These sausages are pretty awful. They aren’t bready like many tinned sausages, they’re solid and soft at the same time. It literally feels like I’m chewing on plastic, and they have the standard “hotdog” flavour of tinned American sausages, only worse. The beans are perfectly fine, if a little on the solid side, and the… [Read More]

Hunger Breaks The Full Monty

Published on June 25th, 2012

The pork steak tastes like chewy spam. It’s actually a nice textural variety when compared with the other meats. The appetizing sounding “shaped beef and cereal cutlet” tastes nice and meaty but is suspiciously soft. Standard ‘hot dog flavour’ sausages. Two of them. And they’re big. Completely flavourless button mushrooms (all two of them). This… [Read More]

Tesco Value Beans and Sausages

Published on May 17th, 2012

Okay, so it’s a bit of a cheese overload, but I was hungry and I deserved it after my exam, okay? The first thing that strikes you is the quantity of sausages- Tesco haven’t held back here, there are 7 tin-size sausages, more than other tin averages. The sausages are even softer than most tinned… [Read More]

Hunger Breaks The Big BBQ

Published on April 27th, 2012

Hurrah! Finally I’ve found a tin whose sausages taste nice! These sausages aren’t the soft, margarine-ish texture of other tinned sausages, they actually feel reasonably meaty. And they have a pleasant BBQ taste. The pork and cereal steaklets, whose name does them no favours, are also reasonably meaty. I am very pleasantly surprised! You wouldn’t… [Read More]

Hunger Breaks All Day Breakfast

Published on December 21st, 2011

Considering a can of beans and sausages costs anywhere between 30-60p, and the “gourmet foods” of the tin world (chicken tikka massala, risotto etc) cost between £1-£2, the £1.49 currently demanded for the All Day Breakfast is on the steep side. 60-90p would be a more reasonable RRP. Unlike many tins, the packaging here is… [Read More]
