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.
Makes amazing nutritious soup
Really useful as no hard work chopping and easy way to get fab vitamins.Wonderful used in a soup:roasted with cumin,red pepper,onion and olive oil then add to veg stock, red Thai paste, coconut milk, splash of lime.Blitz to a smooth soup and add a dusting of coriander leaves. Healthy and gorgeous. Will buy this excellent product again.
Better than fighting a fresh squash!
So easy to use especially for old arthritic hands.Added to soups ,curries ;casseroles and even in veggie chilli. Takes on flavours and delicious.
Disappointingly hard butternut#
Looking forward to butternut chunks and found they were frozen. After an hour of lightly cooking them on 2 setting I had to turn it up to 3 and use the potatoe masher. Some of the squares stuck at the bottom of the pot and the sugar I had lightly sprinkles burnt at the bottom. By the time we ate after 1 and a 1/2 hours lumps were still hard. Wish I'd taken a fresh butternut and wrestled with it instead.
Had this as a substitute to fresh butternut squash, not impressed, when defrosted its full of water also tried using it from frozen and it turns to mush very quickly No flavour, dont bother use fresh if available.
Butternut squash is the hardest veg to chop, this is great as its prechopped! I've tried to purchase for a while now but its always out of stock? Tesco please restock!

This product simply doesn't work . By the time the squash chunks have unfrozen they are waterlogged and turn into mush when you cook them.
Really handy, but check for peel
Great to have this big awkward member of the squash family peeled and cubed, ready to use from the freezer. So far I’ve only used the chunks in a rustic vegetable soup, where they add to the variety of textures and colours. My only criticism is that the peeling process could be improved. Some of the chunks still had skin on. It was thin but tough, almost like a bone. It’s difficult to get the skin off slippery frozen cubes.

Much better and more convenient than chopping up a fresh one. Not tried roasting yet but great for making sauces and soups, cooked in a saucepan they cook into soft mash-able cubes perfect for a thick pasta sauce.
Convenient way to have squash on hand, saves time!
This is a great addition to many dishes, I use it in a sausage traybake with heck Chicken sausages. I find it hard to cut up a butternut squash with arthritic hands so this makes life easier and its so quick to use.
