Iceland Beef Stew and Dumplings

11 August 2013

Tasty, succulent beef, although the pieces are meagre in size and there aren’t many of them. I also found myself chewing on a huge piece of gristle, which wasn’t a nice surprise. The carrots and crisp enough and sweet, very nice. I found the dumplings to be quite inconsistent – soggy to the point of… [Read More]

Iceland Ultimate Snacks Meatball Subroll

06 August 2013

The bread is soft, soggy and chewy, and my first bite split the sub in two, making a very difficult and messy snack. The meatballs are far too soft and instantly instil distrust as to their contents. They taste pleasant enough and have the flavour of a bolognese mince, but where’s the texture?! The sauce… [Read More]

Iceland Minced Beef Hotpot

31 July 2013

Too salty. Unpleasant, overly dark flavour. Lots of potato, so quite filling, but ultimately skimping on the meat and veg.

Iceland Indian Takeaway Lamb Kofta Balti

25 July 2013

This is like an Indian take on spicy meatballs. Tasty sauce with just enough chilli, and a fairly generous quantity of meatballs. However, the meatballs taste cheap and don’t compare to ordinary cuts of lamb. This is like a doner kebab thrown into a spicy sauce. For £1.50, this is acceptable.

Iceland Ultimate Snacks 2 Chicken Tikka on Garlic Naan

21 July 2013

Not really a naan bread, more of a wrap. Quite a messy eat. Tasty enough, but a bit sickly. Will give you bad garlic breath!

Iceland Chicken Dopiaza

14 July 2013

Tasty, more tomato-ful than appears on the front cover. Ate with two mini peshwari nans- good combination. Wasn’t as substantial as I’d hoped. Felt almost like a standard microwave curry without the rice.

Iceland Spaghetti and Meatballs Meal For One

02 July 2013

Immediate failings: this comes in bags that are difficult to poke holes in during the first step of cooking and dangerous to empty once the cooking is finished. I followed the instructions correctly but the spaghetti was still cold (not tepid, COLD) in the middle. Consequently, I had to cook the whole thing for longer,… [Read More]

Iceland Cheesy Beans and Sausage

12 June 2013

Not keen on the sausages, the flavour is overly smokey and not particularly nice. However, these frankfurters are at least REAL, unlike the standard rubbish so-called-sausages you get in tins of bangers ‘n’ beans. I found the potatoes to be a little on the solid side – they need to be cooked for longer. The… [Read More]

Iceland Chicken, Prawn and Chorizo Paella

19 May 2013

Tasty! The chorizo has a rich flavour, and the prawns are lovely, not bland like many supermarket prawns… decent sized meal but will take up a lot of space in the freezer considering it only serves one. £2.50 is a bit pricey too; knock 50p off and I’d be happier. Be warned- the paella sticks… [Read More]

Iceland Sri Lankan Chicken

01 May 2013

This can’t quite decide if it wants to be a korma or a curry. I think the korma wins the battle on this one- it has that classic creaminess and turmeric induced colour. However, there is a hint of chilli and- dare I say it- other flavours that I’ve begun to associate with tacky, mass… [Read More]
