much too salty
It stuck to the pan, and even though I fried it for the recommended eight minutes, it was not crispy. smoky flavour was ok, but overwhelmingly salty, I won't buy it again.
Lovely and they have now made it even easier to cook - instead of first dry frying, then frying in oil, now just fry in oil or put in the oven
Super-tasty and quick to prepare.
This veggie bacon is absolutely lovely! All my family love it. My husband and son like it with omelette in a pitta bread. I usually go for a plain bacon sandwich. We fry it in a bit on olive oil for approx 5 minutes - a bit longer if we want it more crispy. It is quick and easy to prepare and super-tasty. Highly recommended.
Slightly too salty, but otherwise a delicious baco
Slightly too salty, but otherwise a delicious bacon substitute. I used it in a Vegan bean casserole and it work really well.
BEST VEGI BACON EVER!!!
BEST VEGI BACON EVER EVER EVER, HANDS DOWN, AND YES I'M SHOUTING, IT'S THAT GOOD!!! Please buy and keep these guys making this product, it's amazing!!!
So good! Tastes just like the fatty part of bacon and the texture is spot on. I can't understand why people are saying the taste and texture are wrong?!
Brilliant taste, replaces mince easily
Its absolutely amazing taste, love it. It has smokey smell and taste. Behaves very much like mince, but to me, its not bacon. However these are just fantastic with just about anything that goes with meat mince. Its totally yummy though and will keep buying this for sure. Thanks to Tesco for introducing this amazing product. Not looking for meat like products, just other deslicious ways you can make plants. Think the plastic is not recyclable at the time of this review.
I didn’t know what to expect from this as the reviews were very mixed but I am so glad I took the leap and bought it! It has an incredibly strong taste of smokey bacon which is overpowering but I like that intensity. You can smell it as soon as you open the pack & it definitely lingers in the kitchen after cooking. The texture of the pieces is chewier than other bacon bits but it’s adds a nice texture to a dish if you’re mixing it through something as it’s similar to using lardons. It cooks up in just a few minutes and adds a delcious flavour to any dish, it is very salty but that’s what you’d expect from a bacon replica. I would 100% recommend and will keep buying.
Texture is nothing like bacon
Wasn't very impressed with this. The texture is chewy and not suitable for a bacon experience. Also it sticks to the frying pan quite badly. The taste is OK but mostly just smoky.
Brilliant meat free alternative to bacon.
This stuff is brilliant! We have been vegetarian for a couple of years but really enjoyed meat. We stopped eating it for both health and ethical reasons but a bacon sandwich is a thing of beauty and something we both really missed - until we had both this product and Quorn bacon too. But this looks like bacon bits as opposed to Quorn’s shoe insole bacon which requires a bit more imagination. Follow the instructions to cook this but cook a few bits a little longer - until they’re crispy. That will really give you the proper bacon experience, chewy and crispy. Yum. 10/10
