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.
Absolutely dreadful.... Just so sticky, I had trouble removing it from the greaseproof paper. I used it to make sausage rolls but once cooked the pastry did not look like puff pastry at all, in fact shortcrust pastry rises more than this did! Do not buy!
This was my first (and last) time using this product. Firstly, unable to remove pastry from the baking paper which leaves you with a sticky, stretchy goo to work with. Once baked you are left with pallid lumps of pastry with absolutely no 'puff' in sight. I'll definitely not be buying this again.
Don't buy it !!
If we could put zero we would. Bought 2 packets for Christmas and New Year and neither batch cooked like puff pastry should. Both batches rose between 0.5cm and 1cm. We did notice one packet the cellophane was "blown" and the other the pastry was very difficult to unroll. Our advice don't buy it - official complaint will be imminent !!
Tried to make sausage rolls with this pastry and
Tried to make sausage rolls with this pastry and its impossible, the pastry sticks to the sheet its wrapped in, and has similar texture to chewing gum. I used to always use this pastry and found it very good however the last few times I've purchased it, it has been the same, I thought maybe a bad batch but evidently not, the recipe must have changed. When cooked its similar to a very stiff shortcrust pastry, won't be using it again in the future unfortunately.
Avoid this pastry!
I wish I'd seen these reviews before I bought this. The pastry is so sticky you cant do anything with it. I now have the worst looking sausage rolls in the oven. I will go back to my other supermarket brand that never fails.
Don't waste your money
Terrible couldn't even get it off of the backing paper. Went straight in the bin, waste of money
