Yummy Brains

5 stars

Lovely flavour and easy to cook

Faggots are a crucial part of the United Kingdom

5 stars

This is such a tasty, mouth watering, delicious meal, especially for the cheap price. It should be noted though that this isn't a quick meal by any means, it takes about an hour in the oven to cook and if you're going to have it on a plate like I do then that means more time cleaning some cutlery and a plate. For a meal which takes so long to cook, it makes much more sense to me to have a larger portion of faggots than the portion you get with this product so I tend to have two of these products together just to make it more convenient and more worth the wait of the cooking time. You can eat the meal out of the tinfoil quite comfortably, however I prefer eating it on a plate as it gives you more freedom to mix the faggots and gravy around the plate to get the most delicious level of mixing you can get out of it, particularly if I'm having two of them together. The flavour of these faggots is peculiar and hard to describe but I love the flavour of them, they are somewhat similar to meat loaf but with a stronger and better flavour in my humble opinion. The meat is so tender and delicate but not to the extent it feels like jelly in your mouth so the texture of the meat is fabulous I think. I also love how they still have the old fashioned man on the packaging, it really does make me and many other white Brits so proud of their nation's history when they see that man on this packaging and reminds us of better times for our country that was once a great place.

Probably due to my age I still enjoy these but wish Tesco would stock the 2 pack version, they are readily available. Living on your own this 6 pack is to big, so I have cut it in half and eat 3, the 2 portion is just right.

How times have changed

1 stars

As these are not faggotts more of a meatball I was disheartened after several years of not buying Mr Brains I did and was in for disappointment They were just horrible tasted of synthetic sausage No enticing smell while they cooked No herbs spices that they used to be famous for The gravy tasteless I managed half of one so wasting food and money Won't be buying these again

Good value meal

5 stars

Tasty and delicious

Not at all how you remember

1 stars

These are truely terrible. Years ago these faggots were a real treat, it's a real shame how they have changed. As soon as I pressed my fork into the first meaty orb I knew something was off. Incredibly soft and spongey. After struggling with a mouthful I decided to check the packaging to see where I had gone wrong, I found my answer in the ingredients list. The largest ingredient of the faggots is water. Creeping in third or fourth was the meat content. 15% pork liver. That's absolutely disgusting! You'd have a better meal buying cat food. Avoid these completely.

They are delicious

5 stars

I have always loved these faggots. They are soft on the palate, and so tasty. I've had them for years, and have not noticed a change in flavour. My only gripe is that a pack of 6 is too many for one person. Packs of 2 or 4 are hard to come by.


5 stars

have always liked brains faggots, they are so tasty and succulent and soft on the pallette never buy anything else

Giving them a wide berth not for me

1 stars

These faggots taste nothing like they used to they used to be in a rich West Country sauce which was delicious. Unfortunately they have altered the recipe so much they taste of nothing there is to much pepper in them, I will not be buying them again.
