Arthritic hands and live alone
I live alone and make winter soups. These days I cannot chop and peel butternut squash or pumpkin or swede. I discovered these packs and am so pleased. I can take as many cubes as I need and cook from frozen. Please supply pumpkin and swede like this.
Bland Soggy Squash of Sadness
Gave this a second chance as hadn't had it in a while, it had gone downhill the last time I stoppped buying it, but I like having vegetables handy for a quick meal. Unfotunately it was just as bad, if not worse than I remembered. I don't know what they do to the squash to make it so completely flavourless, even when roasted. I will buy fresh from now on when it's available, more work but at least it's not soggy bland sludge!
A large amount is unripe, an annoying amount still
A large amount is unripe, an annoying amount still has skin attached to it, and as a frozen product its weight is boasted by water so after roasting the 500g bag i was left with about 200g of squash. Additionally it mushes during the first ten minutes in the oven, it really is better to buy a fresh squash than this.
Tough bits in it.
I often use this in soup and nearly always have to pick bits of very woody stalks out of the soup. It doesn't roast well and despite the hassle, fresh is far superior. I won't be buying again.
Unripe, bits of skin on, tasteless. Waste of time
Awful. Most pieces are not peeled properly and have hard skin left on. So need to check each chunk. Also, once you have sliced off skin, the remaining slither left is inedible because none of the butternut squash in the bag is ripe. So much hassle for a product that is meant to be convenient. Pointless. I will never repurchase. Going back to cutting up my own.
Please remove the hard bits
Would be useful to have on hand as a convenience product, but there are too many hard, inedible bits (from the squash shell) included.
I do struggle with dicing fresh butternut squash too but this is disgusting. We had a soup with fresh squash and it was delicious, a few days later I cooked the same thing and it was awful. Buy the fresh one, if you struggle to dice it just pop it into the oven for a while and it softens.
Not very nice

Uneven cooking due to different sizes
This is a good product for me as I have trouble cutting up a normal squash. However unfortunatley the pieces are not all the same size so they do not cook at the same rate in the oven which means that some burn and others are not cooked.
Mushy, Flavourless and still had skin on.
Got this as a substitute for fresh squash and won't have it again. Mushy and flavourless. There was also a few chunks of peel and seeds left in as well which were very unpleasant.
