Have been buying these sausages for a few years but lately they have changed for the worst. The skins are tough. The texture has changed. They shrink and they burst even if pricked first. Not good
The Tesco Finest British Sausages are succulent, flavoursome and juicy. Not only is it gluten free, but it is 100% pork which made them taste meaty and not fatty. Highly recommended these sausages for breakfast or even on the BBQ
Used to be great but now they are awful.
Tesco Finest Cumberland sausages used to be excellent - solid and meaty, with good skins, flavour and seasoning. Unfortunately the recipe seems to have been changed and now they are awful. Tesco claim "85% pork". A lot of this must be pork fat. Lots of grease comes out in the cooking, although a fair amount stays inside them. There doesn't seem to be much meat at all. When cooked they have little substance and taste bland and greasy. They are virtually inedible cold, whereas they used to make a great snack. The skins are weird. And why on earth would sausages contain bamboo fibre?!! I don't expect to pay a premium price for a load of grease, so I won't be buying these or any other "Finest" sausages ever again. A very effective way of devaluing the "Tesco Finest" brand!
best in the shop!

These sausages are very good quality and the amoun
These sausages are very good quality and the amount you get for the price is brilliant. The ingredients are high quality and they are delicious.
Delicious 😋 high quality.highly recommend
I'm sure I've bought these before and enjoyed them. These burst from the skins, skin was tough,filling was crumbly with a weird texture which I can only assume is due to the Bamboo. Will never purchase again
Different From Before, For the Worse !
These have not been bought for ages - something has changed since the last purchase, for the worse ! Unlike other reviewers on the grill the fat drip-off was not noticeably different nor did they shrink excessively - but those should not be the positives ! If these were not a one-off 'bad batch' then now expect a strange 'crumbly' non-meat like consistency and a taste dominated by the herbs/spices, very little of the alleged pork. 85% pork, maybe more of that is now pork fat rather than pork meat as well following a clear change in quality ? I note that the chipolata 'versions' have 5g more fat/100g, so potentially even more dissatisfying !
Need to employ a taster with a better palette.
I agree with all the other customers who didn't rate these sausages, they were awful. My 5 year old grandson wouldn't eat them, he said they tasted horrible, the skin was very thick and plastic tasting. There was a supposed spice flavour which just left a burn taste in the mouth. I couldn't find a good word to say about them. I won't buy these again.
I'll never buy these again
Absolutely awful!!! I've always bought Finest sausages and picked these as usual for my online shop without a second thought as knew I could trust them to be excellent. How wrong I was!! I wanted these for toad in the hole for Sunday lunch, they took ages to get any colour on them, shrunk, and the amount of liquid that came out was unbelievable! They ended up tiny, suitable size for a child, certainly not an adult and the texture was awful. They were gritty and grainy, the meat just crumbled and was tasteless. I'll not be buying any sausages again from Tesco, I always thought paying a little extra for the 'Finest' range meant I could trust that range but not now. Seems you changed the recipe to a GF one at the expense of the superb quality of before....
