Absolutely awful, tough and inedible.
If there was a minus star I would have used that, so by giving them 1* is way too much. These were absolutely awful. I fried them with some onion and garlic first before adding them to a pasta dish. They totally spoilt the meal as they were really tough, chewy and inedible. We had to resort to separating them out and left them on the side of the plate and then disposed of them. I will never buy these again and will stick to pancetta in the future.
Beautifully tasty, I had intended to buy the unsmoked version but this was not in stock. However, these were a sublime substitute, and the flavour was amazing, fried slowly and served with veg is an ideal treat in the evening, especially in these cold winter months.
Tates really plasticy, ruins any dish you use it on.
