Terrible porridge (must have changed supply)
Read the reviews on other packet sizes. I am not alone! This product was the main reason I went to Tesco. It was by far the best own brand for thick creamy porridge and I have bought it for years. BUT something has changed. It is awful now. I bought in Jan but seems to be problem from as early as Nov. I won't be buying again. Yuck. Sloppy lumpy mess. GO BACK TO PREVIOUS SUPPLIER PLEASE!!! And put a sign up in shops when you do and I will start buying again. Now I need to do a decent porridge hunt again.
Oh dear !
Oh dear. Buying Tesco’s own brand for years now and have always been impressed with the smoothness and melt in your mouth feeling. This latest bag is awful. Bitty, earthy almost as if it’s gone off. Get your act in gear Tesco, looking at recent reviews we all can’t be wrong !.
Not what it was.
Quality has changed for the worse.
Tastes like earth.
It's been a long time since I've purchased this but didn't have much choice in the express store. Both bags I purchased (2 x 500g version of the product not listed on this website) sadly taste very earthy and are not pleasant at all to eat, was really looking forward to my porridge :(. I've definitely been put off from buying this for a very long time, in the past its been fine. The date and batch codes on the bags are: 08 Sep 21, 0251P4, 06:54 G; 07 Sep 21, 0250P4, 14:34 G
The bag i recently purchased was awful. It tasted earthy and fusty. I ended up throwing the bag away.
Usually nice but newest bag full tasted off.
I have been buying this product for several years and never before had a problem with it. This last bag however tases horrible, it has an earthy taste. Will be buying another brand of porridge next time.
Smells and tastes of mould
They really need to speak with the supplier. We’ve bought Scottish oats from both Tesco and Sainsbury’s recently and they both smelled and tasted of mould.
This the second bag of porridge oats that have tasted vile! The first bag tasted earthy/chemically, we chucked it away as it was inedible and I thought it was just a bad batch. Just opened a second bag, cooked it for the family and it is also vile. Just looking through the comments now, I can 22 people have had the same experience of horrible musty porrdige. Tesco, what are you doing about it?
Just opened new pack and porridge had earthy/mouldy taste. Oats have a slight mouldy smell too. Usually buy value oats so thought this was perhaps normal, just an acquired taste. Will now be returning them after seeing these reviews.
Foisty damp taste
Tastes foisty like oats where stored damp. Will return to Tesco so they are made aware of the issue and other items removed from sale. Even with honey you just can’t eat tastes awful.
