Not very good. Gloopy. Tasteless
Ended up throwing the whole meal in the bin because it was too disgusting to eat! Bring back the old recipe.
Really not nice, like previous reviews it tastes like aniseed and heavily of thyme but overly sweet too! Just buy something more expensive that this, it’s not worth saving money over
Go back to the Value recipe!
Look, I appreciate that you got rid of the last recipe that everyone complained about because it was disgusting, but this new recipe is soooo bland - and I like bland food, but this was so practically tasteless, I might as well have not used it at all. Can't you go back to the recipe it was before you changed to the Hearty Food label? It was really good a few years ago and you've just ruined it since.
I was really disappointed with this product, it had a yucky flavour of something artificial and an overwhelming sweetness. Even after adding other ingredients I couldn’t cover up the strange fennel taste which ended up ruining the dish. I thought I might as well try it for the price but it’s really not worth it.
Simply don’t buy it
Thought I’d give it a try. My child refused to eat his pasta with it on and the sauce is so watery I usually really recommend this brand for its good price and taste but this is the worst pasta sauce I’ve ever tried
Not bad at all. I have tested this pasta sauce without adding other ingredients and it is very tasty. I have also added bacon, onions, garlic etc which makes the finished dish even more flavoursome. You can not beat this price.
Aniseed sauce not tomato sauce
As per some of the other reviews, all you can taste is the fennel seeds (aniseed flavour) in this sauce. No tomato taste, no herb taste, just a very sickly sweet fennel taste. I personally love aniseed/liquorice etc but a pasta sauce should not taste like a sweet or an alcoholic drink. Spaghetti and meatballs dinner went in the bin.
really gloopy won't buy again.
I am giving one star for effort as it is gluten free. However this is really, really gloopy. I will not be buying again.
I have never tasted such a disgusting, watery, tat steels sauce in my life. It was just horrible. I can’t put my finger on what it tasted like but it certainly wasn’t tomatoes and herbs!
