Californian Raisins, they are not !!
Have bought these raisins for many years, go through 1 Kg every 2 weeks, using mostly in cereals. Since they are now produced in turkey instead of California the quality has diminished dramatically. The Californian ones were nice and plump and juicy and had a great taste, the Turkish ones are small and all skin and very tough to eat, I now have to steep them in boiled water overnight to make them edible, this alters the flavour which is not the best. Don't know why Tesco changed country of origin, maybe down to cost, I for one will be seeking Californian raisins from some other supermarket. Surely the buyers for Tesco supplies must check for equivalent quality before shifting suppliers, or is that why other smaller supermarkets are overtaking them.
Very pleased with these raisins.
Really good quality, use on cereals & as a snack. Best thing for me is that there are no unwanted additives/chemicals. Very tasty & would be great in scones/cakes etc. Just needs plastic packaging changed now to biodegradable, or some kind of environmentally friendly packaging.
I don’t want raisins covered in sunflower oil
Why do I have to buy raisins covered in sunflower oil? Tesco used to stock Sun Maid raisins which aren’t. Now I’m expected to buy these. I won’t.
Great and moist.
some brands dry out and stick together. These are great and last a long time.
