Worst roast potatoes
I really don’t get on with these for some reason. They take way longer than it says to cook, they get zero colour to them unless they are cooked to a brick. I have a good quality oven so it’s not down to that. Get better roasties out of the freezer section!
Tesco please get some taste testers
These tasted absolutely horrible- I had to toss them out - not sure if it’s the rapeseed oil or maize flour or both. Do Tesco not have taste testers? Anyway, I’ll go back to buying potatoes and making them from scratch. That’s what I get for taking the lazy option!
Sent these as a substitution. The poor reviews are right. These potatoes are strangely mushy and cooked weird. Some of the potatoes turned completely brown whilst some stayed white and wouldn't brown up. They also had a very strange sour taste, as though they were off. Waste of gas cooking them! Would not accept as a substitute again.
After a couple of days in the fridge I noticed that some potatoes had grey patches (well within use-by date) so I removed those and froze the rest to preserve them. Sadly when I cooked them they mostly went grey anyway and weren’t nice at all. I threw most of them away.
You're better off making your own
Followed the instructions to the letter but left them in for more than twice the cooking time and still not cooked through, let alone crispy! Complete disappointment!
Horrible - save your money!
Horrible! Greasy rather than crispy and a very peculiar taste. Most of them went in the bin. I usually make my own roast potatoes, but having grown a bit bored with cooking during lock down, I thought these would be an easy option - big mistake!
90 mins in the oven and still raw white potato hahaha
Firstly throw away the cooking instructions. They
Firstly throw away the cooking instructions. They need something more like 50 minutes at gas 7. Secondly, some of the potatoes are much bigger than others. I took the radical step of getting a knife and cutting those extra big ones in half !! Result - Not bad at all!
This is a tray of random sized chucks of raw potatoes in a special coating, not sure of what, because they are such different sizes they don't all cook at the same time. Expect some to be completely over cooked after 30 minutes and some to be raw, but don't expect any to be like a roast your gran cooked. Still at least they were free.
Generally very good and tasty
Had one delivery where potatoes were poor quality and was tempted not to re-order. Since then, however, I have re-ordered and am in the habit of using half and freezing the other, which seems to work OK. Such a good shortcut to having to start from scratch and taste good too. Tend to add extra butter though.
