Tasteless, old recipe back please!
The new recipe for these is disgusting. Tasteless, horrible texture and now have to cook for 20 mins instead of 1 1/2, why change?! Very disappointed, hopefully they will revert to the old recipe.
Change recipe back!
Old recipe was lovely and a regular staple. Since the change its a totally different product. Look, taste, texture, cooking time, the way it cooks, holds together( it now doesn't) etc all changed. It is now horrible. It's not we have to get used to the change it is simply not nice! The taste and texture is all wrong. My daughter loved the old ones, won't touch these. Totally different product tesco are trying to pass off as the same as the old.
I love this. 4 stars not 5 because I think it has
I love this. 4 stars not 5 because I think it has a more salmony texture when used in a stir fry. But as I don’t eat salmon either this is ace! Better fried separately to the rest of the dish so it stays crispy.
Weird and unpleasant at best.
I want to eat less meat and so I've been trying various vegan products. This one (along with the sausages) is really unpleasant. I would recommend sticking to actual vegetables. The main ingredient is reconstituted wheat protein, I'm not sure whether that's good for you or not. Slightly better when just cooked but if you eat when cooled down its just a claggy blob of horror.
Used to be great, now they're repulsive.
These used to be my favorite meat substitute when I was here from the US studying (until 2019). I came back to the UK recently, excited to try these, and I was repulsed. They are DISGUSTING. I was convinced they were terribly off, but apparently, this is just a new recipe. It's seriously awful, please change it back.
The recipe has changed as is not as nice as it use
The recipe has changed as is not as nice as it used to be. I am really fussy and the previous style was fantastic and not too meaty. This new style is like bits of meat pushed together. My husband eats it but I can't. Bring back the old style please
Love it. Will buy again
Love it. Will buy again
The most disgusting thing I've ever tasted
I'd give it zero stars if I could. Entire pack went straight in the bin.
No meat, flavour or texture: no way it is edible.
I have eaten some lovely meat free chicken pieces...these do not fall ino that category. I fried them off and thought they looked good. The pieces are chunky in size and browned quite well. I tossed them through some curry sauce, vegetables and served with rice. Simultaneously my partner and I took our first mouthful. My face screwed up in horror and they spat their out. The pieces have a texture which I have never encountered before. They are soft and squigy. The lightest pressure and they bounce before disintegrating into rancid strings. The taste is artificial and even after we threw the whole lot out, we could both still taste the foul stuff lingering in our mouths. Avoid.
Personally I liked the product.....
I tried these the other day, I actually read it as Chinese Chicken style pieces...(no glasses on at the time) However when I realized, I read reviews and thought oh dear, these are gonna be naff ! I had never tried the older recipe ones....even though Ive been veggie for over 30 years now I stuck 75g in the microwave to bulk out some leftovers I had to make a main meal, and was pleasantly surprised. I liked the personally, they were ideal for what I needed at the time. I liked the convenience of microwaving it quickly as well Probably will keep a pack in the freezer for the same sort of thing, bulking out a plate and adding some different texture
