These are without doubt the worst textured cumberland sausages I have ever tasted. Like sawdust! I bought 2 packs and ate 4 "sausages". The rest went in the bin. Really dreadful.
Wow - Incredible Sausages
Really can't understand these negative reviews, I thought these were incredible. Perfectly seasoned with pepper and perfect in a cooked breakfast.
These used to be good but when cooking them at the weekend I thought something was wrong with my hob as they didn't cook as a sausage should but really odd, I read the packet and it said alginate skins which I had to google, algae or seaweed-really. Yuk tasted horrible, fed them to the dogs, even they sniffed them for a long while before eating. I won't be buying again, unfortunately I had to give them 1 star in order to post review but they are a big fat zero!!!
Recipe has changed
Agree with the majority of other reviews. The recipe has certainly changed and not for the better. Will have to try somewhere else till I find one I like.
Traditional Flavor Nice peppery sausages. Just as a Cumberland sausage should be Cooked in the oven and the outsides were nicely brown and crispy
Rubbish! Doesn’t deserve the “finest” label!!! Thin skin that falls to pieces when cooked!! Not meaty!! Loads of water comes out when cooked!! Not like they used to be!! They were meaty and tasty now very peppery to disguised flavour, which isn’t good! Won’t be buying again! Will try Asda or Aldi better labels.
Finest no more, Nice in packet but cheap after
True these have changed, made cheaper and casing not originally a sausage. Shame. Certainly not finest any more. I was told the recipe was changed to make it healthy and soft. Well shouldn't the customer be asked first?
Do not buy these
Really bad quality. Inedible. Shame, they used to be really nice and always in my basket. Tesco, please listen to your customers and learn from all the bad reviews of late across the whole Tesco Finest sausage range.
NO LONGER A "FINEST" PRODUCT
Recipe changed, we no longer like the taste or texture so we won't be buying these anymore. We will probably use Aldi or the local butcher sausages in the future. You can mess about with changing some things but not basics like sausages, and they are supposed to be your finest!!! Also if you want to produce a gluten free product, develop a special range, less than 5% of the population have a problem with gluten
I've been buying these for years, but the last two
I've been buying these for years, but the last two packets were terrible - they split, shrank and appeared to have very little meat in them. No more.
