Pastry is so stuck to the paper its terrible to get off. Pastry is so thin it tears as you try to make the rolls.
Shocked by the reviews....
Surprised at how much hate this product is getting... I actually like it and don't find it too different from the normal puff pastry, it is quite sticky but not a big deal for me...
Palm oil as an ingredient? REALLY, I assumed that
Palm oil as an ingredient? REALLY, I assumed that was a thing of the past.. you can see and taste the difference between all butter pastry and this. When I looked in my local shop 2 days ago there was no all butter pastry available. Please give people the choice whether or not to pay a bit more( and hopefully be supporting BRITISH dairy farmers) lacklustre at best. Wouldn't buy again. Sorry
I managed to get it off of the grease proof paper fine However when cooking it refused to brown properly and didn’t puff at all. Wouldn’t recommend
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.
