Not Recommended !
The last pack I bought, very recently, were in a really poor condition. The outer leaves were all starting to rot, and had to be cut off every little sprout. I regretted not noticing this when my order was delivered, or the unopened pack would have been returned.
Tiny and not very fresh
I ordered online otherwise I would not have bought them. They were tiny and by the time I finished removing the stalk still attached and grey and the damaged leaves I was left with half the amount. On the plus side they cooked more quickly and they didn't taste bad.
Half of the sprouts had to be cut away as black and slimy. No sell by date so no idea how old the sprouts were but definitely not fresh! I know the weather has been bad but no good enough quality. Had to cook whole packet as no way would they last!
poor quality, poor quantity only a few in a bag,no
poor quality, poor quantity only a few in a bag,not 500g at all! feel fooled :(
These sprouts are a false economy. They have no sell by date but if they did it would have been a month earlier than when I bought them. All different sizes - big to tiny so need sorting so you cook the same size ones. I can't believe the customer who said they would be on her Christmas dinner table - glad I'm not invited! I threw half the bag away and will buy loose from now on.
I ordered these online for the first time and it's the last time as well. The picture is completely misleading. The brussels are tiny, some were so small, it wasn't worth cutting the brown stalks out and peeling them. What a complete waste of money.
The sprouts I bought last week and delivered to me
The sprouts I bought last week and delivered to me on the Wednesday were O.K. taste-wise but they were not of a consistent size and were not as fresh as I would normally go out and buy - the secret of knowing if they are fresh is where they are cut with the knife - if fresh, then flesh is clean, and if a week old, the flesh is dark brown where the knife has cut through. Not only that there was a fair bit of waste this week and not of the best quality. As the weather is rough and not good to go out on the land myself, I will try another pack, but well done to the farmers for keeping us moaners supplied.
Buy when grown in UK and in season
I'd suggest people buy these when they have the British flag on them and are in season (Jan, Feb, Oct, Nov, Dec) for a better chance and getting a good sprout.
These sprouts will not grow on you
I am 70 years old have eaten sprouts since I was a young boy. These sprouts are the worst I have ever eaten, they are loose, a good sprout needs to be tight.They are very dirty, by th time you have finished peeling them there is almost as much waste as there is product. Will buy my spouts from somewhere else from now on. Very disappointing
