The lemon was just a load of slop and tested awful and they was nothing to the meringue. I wont be buying this again.
the best lemon meringue
i love this tesco lemon meringue..ive tryed all the others from all the other supermarkets...and this one is the BEST..its been out of stock for some time now...i need it to come back.
Few minutes in the air fryer to brown the meringue slightly, add some evaporated milk. YUM!
The worst I have ever had the misfortune to try !!!! Don't know what is in the middle of this pie but it certainly tastes nothing like lemon. Our whole family had one bite then straight in the bin. Really Tesco you ban Heinz from over charging you should take a look at your own products and address the quality of these.
Passable if you have nothing else
Did not realise you have to cook this item to get the Meringue browned. It said about removing the cardboard base which seemed to have moulded itself into the pastry base. After taking it from the oven and allowing it to cool slightly, it was virtually impossible to remove it from the baking tray to the cooling rack without it breaking. As for taste and texture... Everything tasted false... the meringue topping was very sweet and powdery... the lemon although tangy, left a bad after taste and the pastry, yes it had a semi-soggy bottom, but the side pastry, you could nearly break your teeth on it. I gave it a 2 because it woke my mouth up like it should, but I could not give any more stars, because of the other issues it had which should be looked at to iron out. Would I buy it again? Only as a last resort.
HOT OR COLD IT'S LOVELY
I love this TESCO lemon meringue pie so much i could munch my way through at least half if left out within eyesight!!! I have tried other stores but Tesco is my favourite. It is nice and lemony and the meringue is lovely and crispy just how mum used to make from scratch in the 1950s but I must say the Tescos is every bit similar to the originals! i.e.like my mum's but no preparing pastry cook it, then pour the lemon with a lemon capsule into a pan stir til capsule melted and lemon thickened, and lastly whipping the white of an egg and sugar to put on top and cook yet a third time!!! Finally NO scrubbing saucepans nor bowls nor cooking pan, whisks, forks, knives!!! Mum's was not only lovely but there's not much difference between Tesco own make which is great!! Mums took over an hour and more with washing up too. Was or is it worth all this hassle? i don't think so. Give me Tesco anytime. Eat it cold for a wonderful dessert or warm it up i wouldn't as its not so good..
Awful. Only ate 2 out of 6 pieces then binned it.
Awful. The lemon part was way too sweet and I have a sweet tooth. It was also so lemony that it was obviously artificial flavouring. The meringue was very flat and there wasn't a lot of it, what there was stuck to the lid of the box if it touched it in transit. The pastry was okay but nothing special. Certainly not worth the price. I ate 2 of the six pieces and threw the rest in the bin. Don't bother. Not worth the calories!!! I am not a home baker so my standards aren't that high, but yuck! Very disappointed.
This Lemon Meringue is delicious.
We tried this for the first time last week. Delicious! Cooked from frozen in 25 minutes, crisp meringue, tangy lemon, short base, slightly warm with a big dollop of cream on the side, couldn't be better. On the list again for this week.
Cheap and extremely nasty !!
This is the first ever product that I have purchased from Tesco in over 35y that I thought was absolutely disgusting!! Tesco should remove this immediately from their stores ,it's nothing like a lemon meringue pie should .I didn't really pay attention to the price but Cheap and very nasty,words can't describe I had a slice and dumped the rest ,maybe it's because it's frozen and I should have gotten the fresh one instead.
Very poor, won't be buying again.
