Sticky, unworkable mess. Don't bother
Wish I'd read the other reviews before picking this up. Total disaster. I took it out of the fridge a little before using as instructed and the texture was so sticky and gloopy it was impossible to get off the greaseproof paper it came in. Very frustrating.
Terrible. Less like puff pastry more like wafer biscuit. Not worth the money or calories. Bin fodder.
DO NOT BUY !
Disgusting. So sticky and more like a dough than a pastry. So dissatisfied in Tesco’s choice to approve and keep selling a product that has so many bad reviews. Please remove this from sale and improve recipe.
Avoid! It’s like chewing gum.
I have now purchased this twice and on both occasions it has been awful, the texture is like chewing gum! It is impossible to get off the baking sheet. I definitely won’t be buying again.
Worst pastry experience of my life so far...
I got this pastry as opposed to the brand leader due to its lightness, mostly. I'm a veteran baker, been messing around with pastry since I was four or five years old. This pastry was a nightmare to use; when I used cutters, the greaseproof paper tore, and when I tried to lift the rounds, they stuck and stretched and behaved like chewing gum, only not pink. I was making Eccles Cakes, so there was a lot of folding and pinching going on, but the bake was relatively successful, despite the trauma. Next time, I'll go for the brand leader.
yuck Bought this by mistake, will not be buying it again. Horrible, Nightmare to unroll because it was stuck to the paper. Then almost impossible to remove from the paper. Ended up with a chewing gum consistency, Absolute pain to use and no puff whatsoever. Complete waste of money.
Sticky and sloppy, only got as the regular non-light was showing as unavailable.
Went in the bin. Totally unusable, 2 rolls of it. Like trying to use goo.
This product is an abomination. I took it out of the fridge in plenty of time before using it, but the 'pastry' was completely stuck to the non-stick paper that it was rolled in. It took me 15 minutes to prise the pastry off the paper, and it was so sticky that it just stuck to my fingers and ended up in lumps, so was virtually unusable as it no longer resembled a sheet of pastry. Once cooked, it was as flat as a pancake - in no way can this product be truthfully described as puff pastry (or pastry of any description, in fact). Do not buy.
Warning - Do Not Buy! Awful!
This is the worst pastry ever! So awful, impossible to work with. Completely sticks to the paper and when trying to get it off it stretched off like chewing gum. Had to go in the bin! A total waste of time and money! Tesco, you should be putting your name to better quality products.
