Love cooking with these perfect to throw in even last min to add extra flavour which I find better than fresh
Awful, flavourless and tough as old boots even after long cooking
Not great quality
I wasn't impressed by the quality of the leeks. I cooked them for a decent amount of time before baking them in a cheese sauce - but there were lots of tough pieces that were indigestible which you had to separate out. I won't buy again.

I hadn't noticed that these were frozen leeks until they arrived. Then I thought what a good idea. But when I came to using two handfuls as a veg they were awful. I would never buy again. I am considering throwing the rest out, since I hesitate to use them in a soup in case it ruins the soup.
Inconsistent, sometimes bitter.
Inconsistent. I’ve had some packs that were fine, but the last two were really bitter and strange-tasting.
Might be OK in a strong stew
Dreadful! If you're thinking of an easy way to do leeks with a cheese sauce, think again! These are woody and old-tasting.
Clean, prepared and always ready.
I've always used fresh leeks but these were recommended by a friend and I shan't go back to fresh. They are small sliced veg so none is wasted, useful for all the recipes and very white and tasty. Always ready for whatever you decide to cook.
Very poor lots of bitter outside leaves which should never be used. Spoiled a beautiful fish pie would not purchase again.
Suitable for long slow cooking....
These leeks are a chunky cut and include the darkest coarsest tips of the leek. Probably okay if you intend to cook long and slow e.g. stews, or blitz in a soup. I want to use leeks as a focal point in a dish consequently these are not for me. I'm going to purchase fresh leeks, cut thinly, and freeze the coarse tips & tender stems separately myself.
Great for soup!
Bought these to make potato and leek soup - worked perfectly. Good to have to hand in the freezer. Wouldn't use if I was making something special (braised or creamed leeks as a side dish).
