Expanded into pillows
My two packets expanded like pillows, well before use by date even when kept in my fridge.... Photos available but either way I dare not use it....
VERY POOR PRODUCT
Very poor. It did not flake up at all when cooked as per instructions. In effect it behaved as if it was short crust pastry. Will never buy this again Very disappointing
Not like the puff pastry I’ve bought before ☹️
Got this as the named brand was sold out. The named brand is everything puff pasty should be.....this tore easily when making pasties. It didn’t rise as much and was soggier and heavier when cooked. Would avoid next time!
Do not buy this!
I bought this product to make sausage rolls. It looked great and I thought it would be nice and easy to use. Couldn’t be more wrong! Absolutely terrible product, do not buy! It does not unroll from the packaging without breaking and splitting. The two packs I bought were virtually unusable. Had to patch them together. Consequently my sausage rolls are an absolute mess!
Awful stuff, never again
Awful stuff. Only one layer of puff, more like filo pastry. Crumbled off its paper it was so thin. Never again
Cooks well, assuming you can unroll it in the first place. At some point, quite recently, the recipe must have changed. Now, if you use it straight from the fridge, it cracks. If you leave it at room temperature for the stated amount of time, it is too sticky and disintegrates. No good if you want to make any kind of presentation dish. Tastes nice and rises well - if you can get it to co-operate.
I have used this product in the past will good results. However I bought 3 packs of this pastry yesterday to make a large batch of Sausage Rolls which I stored in the fridge. On opening the packet the pastry looked and smelt different but was well with in its Use By Date. I found it dreadful to roll out, very wet and sticky, nevertheless I make my Sausage Rolls only to find once baked they hadn’t risen and the pastry didn’t have a good taste.
I got it out of the fridge 5 mins before I needed it and it literally went to mush. Was trying to make pinwheels and I could not roll it together and it stuck to the paper it came in. Never again
BAD Puff Pastry
I have been buying ready roll puff pastry for quite some time as I make pies/Sausage rolls etc. Previously I have noticed the odd pack that smells as if the butter is on the turn and it doesn't rise or puff up in the oven as normal. The latest purchase was made on 25th Aug, I bought 4 packets, the use by date was well into the middle of Sept, but I wanted to use one the nice day. I stored them in the fridge as usual, as soon as I opened it, I could tell it wasnt a good batch.It had the slightly rancid smell, you could see specks on the pastry and it was very soft, even straight from the fridge. Unrolling it was a disaster as it kept sticking to the paper, so I had patches all over. I decided to see how it would cook, unfortunately it didnt rise or puff up like it should have. Its so disappointing, the other packets were the same, I ended up using approx 2 packets (after trying to patch the pieces together) and throwing the rest away.
Good value pastry
Would buy again. Absolutely fine.........was at little unsure after reading some of the reviews but am glad I took the chance.
