pastyr or paste?
I don't know if it was a duff batch, but you couldn't get it off the baking paper. It was just a sticky paste. Unuseable.
This pastry is absolutely awful. Sticks terribly when using and after cooking isn’t puff pastry at all. My sausage rolls had to go straight into the bin. Such a waste of money.
This used to be an excellent puff pastry but I believe the product has changed. It’s become very sticky and hard to work with and it has no puff. I’ve bought it for years because it was so good but I won’t be buying it any more.
I use a packet a week to make Eccles cakes and it
I use a packet a week to make Eccles cakes and it is ok. To stop it sticking to the rolling pin use parchment paper over the pastry and it can then be rolled and reshaped easily. I use it immediately from the fridge and do not leave to stand for 15 mins as recommended; unroll carefully.
Not what it used to be
Not sure if the recipe has been changed. It used to be very good but now it goes soft and sticky really quickly once out of the fridge. You now need to unroll it and put it back in the fridge before using it
Don't buy, doesn't rise!
Awful, barely rises compared to other brands of pastry I have used. The leftovers on the roll went in the bin as I wasn't willing to use it a second time.
If I could give the zero stars I would
If I could give the zero stars I would I have tried purchasing this on many occasions one to freeze to to keep in the fridge 3 to use immediately when I get it each time it sticks to the layer that is separating it I’ve tried re-rolling it nothing makes a difference this is the most awful pastry I’ve ever tried unfortunately they need to remove this from the market and create something that actually works
Terrible product. Sticky when unrolling. Little or no layers / laminations, hard when cooked and no flavour. Nothing like puff pastry. Probably the same pastry that is used for the awful Tesco pies.
Does not produce a good layer affect. Pastry came
Does not produce a good layer affect. Pastry came out more like crisp short pastry
I wish I could give 0 stars. Awful. Someone said in the reviews you should take it straight from the fridge and it won't stick... Not true. I have tried letting in be in room temperature and taking straight from the fridge, nothing helps. Awful awful awful. Not worth it. Absolutely waste of money.
