Not up to Youngs usual standards
I thought it was very disappointing. Like another buyer has said, there was something that looked like grey mush inside the breadcrumbs so I threw it away. This was not up to the usual standards.....
Awful product. After eating most of it I saw that the “scampi” filling was actually a grey mush so I threw the rest away. I now have a half packet of this rubbish left in my freezer so it’s going straight into the bin. Please don’t buy
Not the quality I expect from Youngs.
A lot of breadcrumb and lower and rather tasteless scampi content (37%) than the Tesco equivalent (42%), for a higher price. The pack size (220G) provides a rather small portion for two people. I'll be trying the Tesco brand next time which comes in a slightly larger pack (280G).
Only one good thing going for them is nice crispy coating, but unrecognizable as scampi or any kind of prawn ive ever seen or tasted ! Consist of some kind of grey mush, wouldnt buy again. .
very good ! can be cooked in the air fryer along with frozen chips
Youngs scam scampi
Worst scampi ever had. Tiny cut up scampi. Only taste is batter because so little scampi. Should have to put on package the weight of scampi. Robbery.
Poor flavour and texture, really bad
Not sure what was inside but it did not taste or look like scampi. Terrible product, quite vile, bad texture, poorly filled, grey mush. I could not buy Youngs again after this product.
Absolutely tasteless will never buy again. Had it with salad, a complete waste of money.
I expected breaded scampi tails but they were filled with an unpleasant, odd coloured mixture...not enjoyable at all! Would never buy again.
The ABC of SCAMπ
How do they get the empty Air Bags Contained in the batter so huge? Selling SCAMπ is big business, but not selling scampi is even bigger! The batter-balls in my sample, after cooking, contained between twice and four times the amount of empty space as the size of the embedded scampi-trimmings. A good profit on stale air! Compare this with the 7% scampi in Whitby SCAMpi bites (the rest being ‘cod’ in all its senses). YOUNG’S used to be a quality name in seafood – but look at them now.
