Dirty and blood filled...
I have never written a review before but these were so appalling that I could not let them be marked with 5 stars. Firstly, half the bag had to be thrown away due to a green sticky muddy substance covering most of the drumsticks (not great when cooking directly from frozen as it's not like you can just wash them under the tap). Secondly, the ones we did cook when taken out of the oven were covered in a thick black residue were the blood had cooked out, again when you cut into the drumstick it was just filled with black cooked blood - literally every inch of every drumstick. Subsequently we had to bin the lot. Clearly they are not cleaning these birds properly after slaughter and I doubt they are safe to eat when cooked directly from frozen. If you're happy to take the time to defrost and wash them thoroughly both inside and out then by all means purchase these, otherwise I would not take the risk.
Worth the cost
Tried it and ended up buying 4 more bags. The fresh may be cheaper but I waste far more from the off smell that comes off them. Also love that it’s British meat and I’m happy to pay the extra.
Well done Tesco! British Meat sold in Britain the way things should be, we have plenty of chicken farmers here and no chicken should ever be shipped in.
JUICY CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS
Looked really fresh. Nice and meaty . The meat tasted like chicken with fresh groundsea salt and black pepper or smothered in BBQ sauce.
Good quality & quantity. A versatile item to have as a stand-by.
