Flavour seems to change bag to bag
These aren't bad - but I swear there are 2 different kinds that all come from the same bag. One week they will be chunky and crumbly, and rather bland (I prefer this). Another week they will be almost mashed inside, extremely oily, and very, very salty. They always have the same nutritional information, but I find it hard to believe the super-bland/dry ones have the same content as the oily/salty ones. I feel like I'm going crazy!
Worst hash browns I have had
This was a replacement for the Tesco own brand hash browns and was very disappointing. They were pretty tasteless and just broke up, the only way to eat them was to scoop them up. Trying to hold them on a fork was a waste of time.
Not the best
Horrible - don’t bother
YUCK YUCK YUCKY!!
YUCK YUCK YUCKY!!
Bought these tonight, and wish I hadn't bothered, they're absolutely vile. They used to be good, what happened? They've gone in the bin, what a waste of money.
Waste of money
Had to throw them in the bin. I normally buy own brand from other supermarkets. I thought I would give these a go. Big mistake. They claim 'New recipe'. Maybe, but certainly not a 'better recipe'. Never again. I will stick with the cheaper ones. They are too thick, heavy and stodgy with hard bits that are impossible to eat.
New Recipe McCain hash browns taste&quality is bad
I used to like McCain hash brows, but recently they started distributing "New Recipe" hash brows. They are quite awful and worse than Tesco's own brand hash browns. The batch which I'm using is "W12052020" and it has lot of black bits potato bits in the hash brows, perhaps they are from bad quality potatoes. The taste is bad too, the grated potato bits are bit chewy (again perhaps either a different potato kind or the new recipe cooking method), either way it is bad throughout. It is a shame that this New Recipe hash browns is a giant step back in terms of quality. I'll stick with other brands for now.
Absolute rubbish. These used to be very good Hash Browns, now stores own brand versions are far far better. Not a nice texture and when baked they don't hold together and just fall apart. Save your money and buy stores own.
Horrible, used to be nice but not anymore, don't crisp and don't taste cooked when they are over done. The stores own are alot nicer and cheaper.
