These used to be wonderful - they were a lovely, dense, chewy protein that you didn't have to think about at all while cooking. The new recipe is horrific. The coating is gone, and the texture??? What happened? They disintegrate while cooking - even if you don't touch them! - and have the texture of soggy stale bread. This is genuinely disappointing. Don't bother buying these until Tesco return to the old recipe.
Bring back the old recipe!
Recipe has changed at some point in the last year, they're nowhere near as good as they used to be! Flavour isn't great and they fall apart when stir fried
Why??!!! Bring back the original ones please!
Used to be fantastic- great fried with curry sauce , or in garlic, & in a tarragon sauce. Now these are vile- I didn’t realise that the recipe / supplier had changed, but when I opened the packet they looked different. Larger cubes, of an indeterminate beige/ grey colour. When fried they didn’t change colour! The old ones would go crispy & golden brown, these looked the same as before they were cooked! mushy & fell apart. Had to throw them out! Tried another packet - the same! Complained to customer services & for full refund & for unopened packets too. ( I did take photos in case they wanted‘evidence’, so customer service was great but I’d rather have the original product please!)
Not a pleasant experience
Thought I'd try these as they are a bit cheaper than Quorn. Really regretted it - taste is similar but the texture is downright unpleasant and we struggled to eat the curry. Bad mistake and will be returning to Quorn. Had the same experience with Tesco beef strip substitutes a while ago and should have learned my lesson then.
AWFUL NEW VERSION
New version of these is horrible. Mine are now stuck in freezer until I get desperate. Avoid these at all costs until Tescos change them back.
Were much better before, bring back the old recipe
Were much better before, bring back the old recipe!
Gone from excellent to disgusting.
I wish I could give them no stars at all. 🙁 They used to be our favourites and we had them really often. They were firm and tasty. Now they’re mushy, slimy, sticky and fall apart. They also taste and smell horrible now. I wish I’d know they changed the recipe before I started cooking. Dinner is ruined.
Your old supplier was better
I preferred your old supplier. Please consider quality next time when you are negotiating with suppliers on price. They were an exceptional meat substitute, the best I had tasted, they are now average.
Tesco have ruined what was a perfect product
Change the recipe back please! They use to have a firm texture, now they fry up as mush, and stick to the bottom of my super slick no stick wok, can I bill Tesco's for a ruined wok?
They've got from excellent to terrible
They were easily my favourite vegan meat substitute and I used to consume a tonne but the order I did the recipe has clearly completely changed and they're almost inedible now. Why Tesco why? Avoid - they're pretty terrible.
