We occasionally eat reduced fat sausages and on the whole they taste as good as ordinary sausages even if they don’t brown up so well in the oven. We had never tried the Tesco finest however and had high hopes as they looked appetising from the photo on the packaging and they did brown up well in the oven. However we thought they were ghastly, both the taste and the texture, the worst sausages we have ever had. We didn’t mind the tough skins as most sausages these days have tough skins but we threw the rest of the pack away and I can’t remember the last time I threw food away, they were that bad!
good flavour, tough skins
The flavour of the sausage is good and texture is also good but the skins are very tough, my husband had to remove them before he could eat his.
Lots of flavour
These were full of flavour and we enjoyed them very much. The taste is very meaty. We have bought several packs now. Some reviewers say the skins are tough, but I would disagree.
Taste just like normal sausages.
No difference to normal full-fat sausages, apart from the fact it reduces chances of heart disease etc. Lovely!
I would'nt bother not as good as standard range t

Extremely tough skins.
Not very tasty and I agree that you need razor sharp teeth to bite into them! I find that nearly all Tesco sausages have extremely tough skins now. Different supplier? Whatever, it needs sorting as customers won't purchase them.
The skins are rather tough on these sausages which would mean I will probably not buy them again.
Tastiest low fat Sausages ever
If you love sausages and you are watching your weight then these are the sausages for you. I have tried all sorts of low fat sausages and I have never tasted such decent lower fat sausages, they are truly amazing.
Standard range is BETTER
I'm a huge fan of Tesco's standard own brand reduced fat sausages so I naturally thought they could only be better in the 'Finest' range couldn't they? Well putting it bluntly, NO, they couldn't. These are not the finest reduced fat sausages Tesco have to offer! Nay nay and thrice nay I say! These horrors are dreadful. Although it has to be said that like their standard range cousins, these bangers keep their shape and size without shrivelling, you need teeth like razor blades to be able to bite through the skins! Even when pricked before cooking the bite of these sausages was like trying to break through a bicycle inner tube and even once that monumental feat had been achieved, there was still the awful experience of trying to get the stuff out of your teeth without slicing your gums. The filling of the sausage was 'okay' nothing to write home about and certainly no contender for the standard reduced fat sausage, but not worth the hassle of having to peel the blighters to make 'em edible before cooking. Nice try Tesco, but it just doesn't cut the mustard, just the gums.
skins far too thin, no fat content so very dry
Fat content zero, so on cooking dry as, skins just burn far to thin
