Mouldy taste

1 stars

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

1 stars

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.

Mould taste

1 stars

I have had to switch brands as I have had 4 bags of this disgusting porridge now. It taste of mould it smells awful. It's just not edible. I have complained and there has been no problem getting a refund.

Weird aftertaste

1 stars

You eat it and it tastes fine, but then there's this weird aftertaste as everyone else has mentioned, like a taste of mouldy veg or earth? I thought my milk had gone off at first but it's the porridge. I'd avoid until they change the supplier!

Will not purchase again

1 stars

Purchased 2 packets from my local Tesco in Hinckley and they tasted completely off . Contacted Tesco customer services as I have previously purchased this product without issue. So maybe a Tesco storage issue ?


1 stars

I don’t know if it is just this batch, as I have never bought Tesco own brand before, but his tastes disgusting. It smells and tastes earthy. I even got my daughter to smell it and she said to check the sell by date but that was 07 Sep 21. So, needless to say, I wont be buying this again.

Same as other reviews, had to throw last two packe

Same as other reviews, had to throw last two packets away because of mouldy taste

Disgusting mouldy taste!

1 stars

Have always bought these porridge oats and have never had a problem but opened a new bag today (ref 07Sep21 025P121:14G)..and they tasted disgusting. Just as other reviewers have said they taste mouldy or mildewed, so have been stored in a damp place, most likely before being processed and packaged. However, another well-known store where I thought I would get a replacement, also has the same comments recently! Packaged in Welwyn. Avoid at all costs!

Moldy taste.

1 stars

These were OK before but recently they have got a moldy taste. I have however survived without any noticeable effects after eating quite a lot.

Have to abandon Tesco's own porridge oats.

3 stars

I have always bought Tesco Scottish Oats but the last pack had a very unpleasant, almost mouldy taste so I have lost confidence in this brand. I had to throw the pack away. Not good when we are trying to reduce waste. When I could not get the Tesco own pack early in lockdown I had to buy more expensive brands, but with the intention of going back to Tesco's own as soon as possible. Changed my mind now. I have ordered Scotts Porridge Oats instead. Such a pity as Tesco's was very good and so inexpensive.
