I had these tonight, and I was impressed. Cooked them as instructions, apart from 150C fan oven, and they came out perfect. Crispy skin with good flavour. Served with a cranberry sauce.. smashing.
I have tried the duck legs twice before but when I opened the packet last night it had a bad smell. However, I did cook it but it didn’t taste right when I tried to eat it so I just put it out.
Well I buy regularly and they are always delicious, I roast on a trivet as to me it’s the only way to eat duck legs. One. Complaint can never open pack@ge have to cut it open, but no complaints re product, must be getting different duck to everyone else, never problem with date either
Check they are not rotten
Bought these yesterday from Tesco Extra Stafford. When opening package, the legs had a strong faint odour which disappeared after a few minutes so I put them on a tray in the oven and left the kitchen thinking they still have 3 days left on the BBE date (9th of March 2021). After 1 hour I came to check up on them in the kitchen. It is impossible to accurately describe the smells without having a gagging reflex and threw everything out in the bin. Came to report my extraordinary experience at the till, the lady said I should have brought a piece of the rotten meat with me for checking and she cannot do anything about it, actually she didn't even care to ask which product the issue is about. Well thank you Tesco, I enjoyed the duck legs in the past 4 years, but now I am thinking of becoming a vegetarian after this amazing and unbelievable experience.
Best cooked in a pressure cooker.
Odd smell when the packaging is open. I don’t like them roasted so confit them. Sprinkle the legs with salt and herbs. Leave uncovered in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours. Wash off the salt, pat dry, fry in a pan until the skin is golden. Then cook in a pressure cooker for 1hr (don’t add any liquid) then crisp in the oven for 10 minutes. Keep the fat from the pressure cooking for next time you roast potatoes.
Smelt rotten eggy when we opened the packet and it didn’t go with leaving them to stand for 10 mins like advised. Complained to Tesco and got a refund. Ruined NYE dinner for us! Also won’t buy again after hearing the factory is under investigation with the Food Standards Agency for treatment of animals

the pack purchased on 12 Nov were bad, thrown in bin however 1st time its happened, buy regularly.
The legs were very strong smelling and I thought not at all fresh. Disapointing. Have always enjoyed in the past. We're used well before use by date.
Do not keep in the fridge.
I purchased these last week. They had a few days shelf life/sell by date left on them. I took them straight home, put them in my fridge. When I opened the pack the following day, wanting to cook them, they had gone off. They spent no time in my car as i only live 2 minutes away from the store. I was unable to get back to the store, so I sent them a note stating the problem. I have not eceived a response.
