Poor use by date

2 stars

Delvered on the 8th with a use by date of the 10th. I would've expected to be able to keep these in the fridge for a few days before using, however when I went to cook with them on the 12th they stank and I had no choice other than to bin them.


2 stars

Avoid. Not what one expects when buying Tesco finest branded food. Extremely chewy with no real flavour.

Bad for environment, buy coldwater prawns instead

1 stars

These prawns are farmed in areas that destroy valuable mangrove swamp habitat and clock up enormous food miles. Better to buy cold water prawns fished locally.

Nothing special & unlikely to make the use by date

2 stars

Generally ok if you've never tasted 'local' fresh prawns, but my last order of these turned green before the 'use by' date!!! Eat them on day one, as they appear to have been previously frozen and then defrosted..........

Excellent treat

5 stars

These are an excellent treat. I get some with my delivery every Friday and it's garlic prawns for dinner. Never had any bad ones.

Rotten in packet

1 stars

Twice now I’ve bought these and they’ve gone off in the packet days before their use by.


1 stars

Food additives has been added to these prawns for better presentation and preservation. The texture is crispy instead of meaty, absolutely do not taste like seafood, I cant believe that this is the standard of tesco finest. Believe me, frozen prawns defrosted by running water even tastes better than this, a waste of money.

Expired same day. Outrageous!

Expired same day. Outrageous!

Stank of rotten eggs after freezing

1 stars

I bought two packs recently, and put them immediately in the freezer (so well within the use by date). Both packs on thawing stank of rotten eggs when opened, so were thrown away. There was nothing on the original pack to say "do not freeze" and they were thawed in the fridge as instructed. I have never had this with any other food product. Buy with caution!!

Misleading description

2 stars

Very disappointed to find that the label on the packets we get says 'Farmed in Vietnam' but there is no mention of this on the online picture or online description. Why are Tesco shipping prawns half way across the world when we harvest the best in the world off our own shores? Mine too were nearly off when i came to eat them and partially pink even though i froze them on arrival. Are they being stored in the chilled area of the delivery van?
