do not buy
smells vile and tastes the same as it smells.
Strong vinegar like smell
Opened the packet and the smell was really strong, smelt of vinegar and had a lot of herbs in it. Smell wasn't as bad after cooking but had a strange taste, couldn't really taste the egg just the herbs. Not sure if it was a bad batch, was worried about being poorly with it while eating so wouldn't buy again.
Your worst nightmare in a packet
Without a doubt the most revolting, disgusting 'rice' I have ever had the misfortune of eating. Without Tesco, I would never have known that rice so fowl could even be made - better off eating the contents of your food waste bin. MUST avoid if you value your tastebuds - and dont even get me started on the smell!
Don’t get me wrong, the smell isn’t amazing and it really does linger, but for a 65p pack of ready rice I’m not really sure what people are expecting. The taste really isn’t that bad. I would recommend the golden vegetable over this though.
Put a peg on your nose!
Even with all the windows open during the heatwave the vile smell just lingered, a cross between rotten eggs and the dog passing wind.I couldnt bring myself to taste it, i would rather have the flu jab!
Bland and dry
Terrible-Stinks-not what egg fried rice should be.
This is the worst egg rice I have ever tasted. The smell is rank - I have no idea what seasonings are in there, but it is terrible. I had hoped to have this with a chinese style curry - it did not go well and was binned. Flavourings are not what are expected from egg rice. Egg amount is little to nothing - smell is rank. Only positive is that it cooked / microwaved well and was light and fluffy. AVOID.
Wish I’d read the reviews before trying this ...it’s vile and the smell it left in the house was awful I had to put fragrance candles on to get rid of the awful smell from it ...ruined my dinner to be honest 😞 however hubby liked it
Not pleasant and not eaten
This product has a very horrible smell and is more grey than white. Hardly any egg visible. Unfortunately it wasn’t eaten as it was served with an equally inedible chicken chow mein for which I’ve given an equally poor review.
