Changed the recipe.
I agree with other reviewers here, there is very little ham taste and just a rather weak pea taste, not very nice.
What have you done to the recipe?
Tried various ‘fresh’ soups in the past & was delighted to come across this, as it had plenty of chunky pieces of ham you could actually chew & taste. I made a special effort to buy it, especially when on offer. However, this is the 2nd one I have bought recently & they have changed it completely. Gone are the plentiful pieces of ham (you now have to search for it!) to be replaced by an excessive amount of whole peas!! Yes, this is Pea & Ham soup, but you don’t have to replace the ham with whole peas, when the main bulk of the soup is already liquidised peas!! I suspect that most people that usually buy this are of the same opinion & bought it because of the ham. What a shame - I will not be buying this anymore unless you change the recipe back. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!!
Sorry not for me..
A tin of Mushy peas with a couple of pieces of chopped ham. I so wanted it to be great ...but a tin of mushy peas and some cheap ham and there you are. Very sweet thick soup, it does taste of peas but then again so do mushy peas. Perhaps I was expecting too much. Sorry not for me
Strong, odd pea taste and not any ham taste at all. Avoid
Rather thin not like normal
One of our fav soups but last week it was thinner with whole peas and not as good as noormal. Bring back the original! Thank you
Awful. They have added sugar. It tastes really sweet. Peas have a natural sweetness that doesn’t require added sugar. There was enough ham, I had no complaints about the texture but the sweetness made it really nasty and I am someone who likes the combination of sweet and salty.
My Favourite Soup
One of my favourite soups ever. Just the right balance of salty and sweet and a lovely texture. Also really high in fibre!
i expected this soup to be salty sweet however was pretty disappointed to find it was spicy. i thought this would be good as im full of cold but the spicyness didnt help.
The soup is so thick I would almost call it a mash, but that's definitely not a bad thing, I loved the texture! It's very tasty, I'll be buying again.
A proper soup... at last!
Just like homemade - we were starting to despair of finding a fresh supermarket soup that was any better than tinned, but then we tried Tesco Finest Pea & Ham Hock which is delicious; nice & thick, plenty of ham, enough salt (Yay!) and hearty servings. DON'T MESS WITH IT, TESCO!
