Oats ok but packaging not recyclable.
Most recent have awful musty smell
I have ordered this many times before without any problem but we just opened this bag and there was an awful musty smell and tasted mouldy. Dated Sept 21. So disappointing to throw so much away.
Mouldy taste & SMell
Like other reviewers I have experienced the mouldy smell and taste and twice been refunded. Such a shame as this was perfect porridge.
Mouldy taste - now inedible
This porridge used to be great but something's gone wrong with it recently. Like the reviewers below, the most recent porridge (with expiry date of Sept 2021) smells and tastes mouldy. I have a few packs in my cupboard and opened a June 2021 one and it was perfect. So goodness knows what Tesco have done but the latest packs are disgusting and inedible.
Tastes and smells mouldy
Been using this Tesco Porridge for years but oh Tesco what have you done. The taste has changed & it tastes & smells like there is soil in it and it seems mouldy. If you have changed the recipe please go back this is awful & I won’t be buying it again. Yuck!!
Hit and miss.
When they’re good, they’re very very good. Cooks quickly and is nice and creamy. HOWEVER, recently I have bought several packets that have had a very mouldy taste and have therefore been inedible. I won’t be buying this brand again.
I have tried so many different brands this is the best i have ever tasted and price is great! So lovely with chopped banana. Well Done Tesco don't change it. As Goldilocks says this is just rite 😁
Tesco oats have no starch
What goes wrong in the processing of these Tesco Scottish oats? Compared with similar (non Jumbo) oats from my local wholefood shop, sadly Tesco oats are poor quality - they do not become sticky and creamy at all, they just stay as little hard flakes. It is NOT porridge as it should be. The local wholefood shop's oats release starch properly and this makes the porridge taste lovely, creamy and substantial. I cannot vouch at all for this product and I just wonder what goes wrong here. Please look into it Tesco, test out what I say.
Excellent vaue for money
Have tried numerous brands over the years and found this to be really tasty, love it with fruit and honey, partner just likes some sugar. I make it with two parts water:one part milk for just the right consistency.
Best porridge I have ever had
Best porridge oats I have ever had. It cooks in seconds. great texture.
