No Such Thing as Authentic Mix This Suits Me Fine
In the subcontinent there are shops and stalls with a huge variety of this sort of num num. The word Bombay is just a pointer to it being a variety of that ilk. This one is one of the best in UK - and yes, the roasted pulses can be hard. In truth it is a bit of a mish mash of several assortments but the blend of flavours is good. I also add dry roasted peanuts the bowl.
Bag of Inedible Disappointment!
Absolutely awful! I don't usually bother with reviews, but felt I needed to leave one after my experience. The 200g bag had about 25% of inedible rock hard split peas and lentils. They were like pieces of grit. I will be returning this bag complete with the 42g of inedible peas (some I had the misfortune of eating when I opened the bag). It's such a shame because I used to buy these regularly to enjoy. I don't know if I was just unlucky and it was a bad batch, but I certainly won't purchase another bag after that.
It's my favourite snack!
Don't know if it's an authentic Indian thing, but it's certainly my favourite out of those available on the market. It has the usual spiced, fried batter, crispy snack part but there's a lot more to it. There's some cashews, peanuts, shards of coconut, little sweet gems of dried fruit & dried peas. Who knows what else, but it all adds up to a very moreish snack to have whilst watching a favourite TV show.
Raisins and coconut don't belong in Bombay mix
This tastes of nothing. I was appalled to find coconuts and raisins in it. Almost ruined my evening.
Horrible! I found a metal paper clip inside the ba

Excellent - Not too hot!
Absolutely my favourite Bombay Mix. Love the raisins. I'm glad it isn't too hot. I prefer to taste all the individual flavours. Well done Tesco. Don't change it!
Bland and tasteless
A bland and tasteless mix - it's not a patch on the Cofresh brand, which tasted fabulous. Please bring back Cofresh!
Please stock Suma Bombay Mix
I wouldn’t buy this as I prefer the Suma brand. And most Bombay Mix products don’t have coconut or raisins in, yuck. I just like mine with peanuts, lentils and chickpeas in.
No taste. The cofresh version is much better.
Bring back Cofresh version!
The Cofresh version is infinitely better but Tesco no longer sell it, which is weird as they sell all the other Cofresh products still! Bring back the original and stop trying to flog us this insipid version.
