Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.....
Recent reviews have concentrated on the change of casing and the new recipe. This was our first purchase of these sausages so I can't comment on whether things have changed for the worse. My family enjoyed them. They are quite sweet but, if you check their sugar per 100 grams ratio, not out of line with other similar brands. The casing is a bit odd - it doesn't colour up much under the grill like natural pork casings - but it's certainly not horrible. People's tastes differ. Give them a try and make your own mind up.
Used to be good, now too sugary
These were our staple nearly-weekly sausages for a year, but in the last month or so we've noticed they've become very sticky and sweet. We checked the ingredients and WOW, suddenly these are FULL of sugar. They didn't used to be. Even my kids find them too sweet now and my kids like sugar! They stick like crazy to the baking tray now, even with a silicone liner. Huge strings of sticky, sugary goo. These aren't sausages, they're meat-candy. Not nice for dinner, not buying anymore.
These used to be quite good but since the recipe changed recently they are a disgusting, tasteless mush.
A once excellent sausage ruined and down-graded.
Tesco's finest sausages were a regular treat, we ate them at least once a fortnight and often every week, but they have changed the recipe for the filing and started using alginate casings right across the range. They are, essentially, no longer a traditional sausage and have more in common with the budget frozen brands that sell for half the price. There is absolutely no reason to swap from a natural casing to alginate other than cost. I no longer buy them and resent Tesco's attitude that we, the customers, will just go along with a sneaky reduction in quality but not price.
Have been buying these sausages for years and always enjoyed them. BUT since they changed the receipt to be gluten free, they are absolutely awful and we won't be buying them again! Well done you've gained a few more customers but lost an awful lot more!
A word rarely used, but Vile.
I have shopped in many stores, supermarkets and butchers i n the four countries I which I have lived in my adult life. I can say 100% these are the worst sausages I have ever bought. So vile I had to leave not only them but my whole meal. I am not a fussy eater but just inedible. I don't know what they tasted like but certainly not meat. One star because my dog ate them. The rest from the packet will be given to him when I bring myself to cook them.
DISGUSTING EXCESS FAT AND WEIRD TEXTURE
These were disgusting and went in the bin. Horrible texture. I always cook my sausages in the oven so i can catch the fat in a tray underneath. These sausages halved in size and i had a tray swimming in fat. Shocking
They are horribly sweet. Maybe its due to the the caramelised onions but they are also bland, increasing the sugary taste.
These sausages used to be our family favourite but
These sausages used to be our family favourite but now they have changed them to gluten free they are the worst. Flavour and consistency has changed, couldn't eat them. Will no longer buy sausages if that is what gluten free does to it.
Recently lacking in taste & less juicy
I used to buy these every week but lately I've found them tasteless & lack their usual juiciness. I wont buy these anymore.
