Better than most restaurants!
The best Scampi! FYI - 41% Scampi is a % of the overall product (not the prawn), the rest is the coating - the norm for any other battered or breaded product. I like the fact that they're not all uniform, they seem more authentic and actual pieces of langoustine not bits mushed up to form one piece. Great crispy breadcrumb too!
I think some of your customers go out of their way
I think some of your customers go out of their way to be as difficult and as critical as possible with their feedback. These 'scampi' are fine and tasty if cooked according to instructions but I suspect some people don't bother to read them and then wonder why they think the product is bad. I have bought these scampi over a long period of time and, for a quick meal, they are ideal served with home-made chips and sometimes mushy peas. I admit I only buy them when on offer as otherwise they are a bit on the expensive side. I live by the sea where I can get West Coast prawns, so I think I know what I am talking about. They don't profess to be like these but they are a good substitute and I shall continue to buy them as long as Tesco keep selling them.
Lovely scampi although a quarter of the weight of
Lovely scampi although a quarter of the weight of the packet was breadcrumbs
Tasty snack, GV4M if bought on offer
Just had some as a "starter" today, before roast dinner. Not our first try - pleased to say that quality is rather good compared to cheaper versions, very tasty. OK, size varies (so do sea foods in real life) but do not understand other reviewers complaining on quality. NOT mush! That said, I only buy when on offer, as rather expensive otherwise - one has to pay for quality!
Bland. Expensive. Avoid.
Bland and expensive product. Avoid.
Tasty Midweek Supper
Great midweek supper dish. I have it with chips and peas. Perfect combination. Nice chunky bits of scampi. I wouldn't pay the full £6 though. I only get it when it's half price which then seems good value.
Not worth it
Is called jumbo scampi. But about 4 pieces are large the rest is same size if not smaller than a normal packet.
Don't waste your money
If these are supposed to be jumbo I hate to think what size the normal ones are. Over half were mostly breadcrumbs
Very disappointed. What does whole or wholetail scampi supposed to mean, 41% of prawn? The breadcrumbs were nice and crisp but inside was just mush.
While I generally like Youngs products I've never
While I generally like Youngs products I've never been that impressed with their scampi which seems to offer a rather ordinary product at a premium price.
