Great taste if you don't add oil

4 stars

I made these in the oven, without any oil they and they were delicious. However, they are extremely greasy, so ignore any instructions to cook in oil. Adding more oil would probably make them disgusting.

Fray Bentos.

If you love those meatballs in a tin can, this is the product for you. I unfortunately have horrific memories of them and didn't wish to relive it. Sticky coming out of the tray, no big deal, fried them off which was very simple to do and cooked a chilli around them. The low score comes from the texture and flavour. Also unlike other substitutes I have used they were impervious to the flavours of the sauce.

Great meatballs

5 stars

These meatballs are large and filling. They hold up well to soups, curries and other dishes. Nice meaty flavour and great texture. Worth the price.


1 stars

Absolutely revolting. Not a meat alternative, full of palm oil, taste terrible and is unhealthy. Do not eat these, there is nothing worse. Terrible food and an insult to food. Once cooked, the pan becomes full of palm oil too.


5 stars

Love these in a pasta sauce on spaghetti, they are huge so I cut them in half before serving

Tried for the first time but not to our taste.

Perfect taste and texture

5 stars

These are by my favourite meat alternative. Amazing value and the taste and texture is perfect. Would highly recommend for chopping them up and including them in a curry also.

Literally the best plant based meatballs available

5 stars

These are the best plant based meatballs I have ever had. They taste and feel so much better than meat, I have absolutely no reason to eat beef or pork meatballs again. Do not expect these to have the exact same texture as meat, because they won't, enjoy them as their own unique food item.


5 stars

My favourite plant chef product, these are incredible! The texture doesn’t quite feel like meat but they taste amazing

Tried it once. Once only

1 stars

Smelled like dog biscuits tasted like dog biscuits. Very recently health has made me think about meat alternatives. First time trying meat alternatives. This is not the way forward. Would not eat this through choice Hopefully there's better out there
