Woody Core !
It would help if Aunt Bessie prepared her parsnips properly -that is removed the woody core instead of leaving it in.
Not worth the expense!
These are lovely and crisp with a soft inside, but!!! they put about 5 huge ones in which are tough and horrid so it's not worth paying the price for a few nice ones!
I agree with most of the other comments. The parsnips were of a mixed size resulting in some of the smaller ones being burnt while others were just about OK. I was also gobsmacked at just how few decent size pieces were in the bag. I wrote to Aunt Bessie's customer service department enclosing photos and to complain. I didn't even get an acknowledgement let alone a reply! The use of palm oil was the final nail in the coffin. I'll never buy their products again - not even the roast potatoes. McCain are much better.
I bought this product regularly several years ago and had been happy with the contents and flavour. However the company have obviously changed product as the bag contained only very small pieces, which resembled oven chips. When cooked they very salty. I would never buy again. Completely spoiled my roast dinner.
Absolute waste of money - bring back the old way!!
The parsnips are usually very tasty but the sizes of them are so enormous lately that i have only had about 5 in a pack plus some tiny matchsticks(literally) (approximately 4). A few months ago the packs used to contain at least 15 reasonably sized parsnips that cooked well & crisped up nicely, now they are so large, you only get 5 or 6 in a pack & they are soggy after they are cooked because they are too big & nowhere near enough to feed my family for the meal.
Too much variation in size to cook evenly, lots of tiny ones that had to be thrown away, were they put in to make up the weight? Won't be buying again.
Since when does a 500g pack actually weigh 352g? d
Since when does a 500g pack actually weigh 352g? disappointed...
Contains palm oil!!!
Instant 0/5 because of the palm oil, what's the point of adding it? I didn't even think to check for that, it's PARSNIPS ffs! AVOID!!!
