We've been getting through about 2 bags a week for 10+ years. They used to be good but over the past few weeks the bags have increasingly been made up of pieces with huge stalks and small heads. I hope it just a temporary batch and not a permanent cost-cutting measure, otherwise I'll have to go elsewhere.
Wouldn't be without them in my freezer
Always have these in the freezer and great that they are price matched too.
If cooked properly they are very good. They don’t
If cooked properly they are very good. They don’t loose the top part like many brands do and they are cheap as well. A bigger bag would be better though
Florets soft & stalks hard
The florets cook before the stalks which means that the florest are too soft or the stalks are too hard. Fresh broccoli does not do this
As good as fresh
Great quality. Tasty in a steamer or on the hob. I eat it with every warm gravy dinner and I even add it to my pasta. It cooks great and isn’t stalky like others you can find elsewhere.
Broccoli was soggy and had black on it, luckily I don't like it boiled otherwise it would be mushy? I defrost and drain on kitchen paper and season and fry it.
Oven bake it - it's lovely
Although I don't like this when boiled or steamed, it is lovely when cooked in the oven. Completely different. We do the same cooking method with frozen cauliflower.
Perfect every time

Depends what you want it for
I prefer raw broccoli because I can fry it for a few minutes and it keeps its crunch. But frozen broccoli florets when defrosted and cooked, in any way, are not crunchy they are mushy and would go well in something like a lasagne. If I were to defrost this and have it raw, it would doubtlessly be watery and soft which I personally wouldn't enjoy. I think the weight of product includes the packaging and ice, and I might as well buy a raw broccoli because I am getting the same quantity as if it were fresh. Another reason to buy fresh is that there is less packaging
