I ordered a bag of baby spinach last week. Big dry leaves (just like this 220gm pack as advertised) which I enjoyed every day as my salad lunch, totally delicious. Ordered again this week and it was a wet bag of slimey, torn leaves which smelled awful. Best before Monday (in 2 days time), not fit to eat on the day of arrival so I binned. Totally disappointed.
GOOD PRODUCT DESERVES MORE STARS
Don't know why this has such few stars. I buy every week and have always had fresh leaves so am happy.
Easy and tasty
I've been buying this every shop for at least a couple of years, and have never had a problem so far (touch wood!). I always use it on the day of purchase (or the next day); I pour the whole bag in a glass bowl, cook for a couple of mins. in the microwave, then mix in a pan with caramelised shallots and/or garlic and/or bell peppers and/or mushrooms.
Seems to have improved enormously. It is lasting much longer in the fridge. I used leaves today in perfect condition, that were delivered 6 days ago.
The spinach, along with other ready washed and ready to eat salads and other vegetables, is washed in a chlorine mixture. Chlorine greatly lowers the immune system of humans and animals which is just one of its many harmful effects. I ate just a few leaves of this spinach without washing and am still suffering cold-like symptoms of sneezing, coughing and runny nose even after 4 days. Should anyone purchase any of these items, please please please rinse well in filtered water (tap water is also chlorinated) before consuming. Please be extra careful during these perilous times.
Leaves were filthy and contained oak leaves!
Beware! I opened this to wash these leaves (despite the pack saying it was washed and ready to eat). Good job I did! The leaves were absolutely filthy and they contained several what looked like oak leaves!
Hit and miss baby spinach
Always wash!!!!no matter what it says on bags!!then spread it out on kitchen papers leave to dry thoroughly, what I find sometimes,is for some reason it firs back of one's teeth horrible!!!
shelf life of vegetables
disappointed as item was delivered on 2nd at 6:30pm with a use by date of 3rd Dec!!
1 day date left, was wet & Slimey went in the bin
This had only next day date Was wet and slimy not edible threw in the bin
Sell by date tomorrow as all the fresh produce. Very unhappy you can’t eat spinach, stir fry, fresh coleslaw all on the same day. They will not last. Very disappointed
