Try them!

5 stars

Loved these! Fully expecting not to so was a lovely surprise. Give them a try!

Great meatball substitutes

5 stars

Tasted great, held together well, went really good with tomato sauce & pasta. Will be buying again. Clearly some reviews on this product are very negative but some people are quite dramatic. I think you should at least try them to make your personal opinion, they’re a really good price too

Disappointing- horrible flavour

1 stars

Horrible taste that overpowered the spaghetti sauce and a very firm texture. In an attempt to salvage the meal plenty of cheese added but again the taste was awful and lingered after swallowed. I had slightly lower hopes with these after the plant chef sausages but was determined to give them ago. Unfortunately most went in the bin and I will not be buying any other plant her products as I have had better experience with other brands. I am not a vegetarian or vegan but a conscious meat eater. If something tastes good it does not matter to me if it is vegan or vegetarian but that it is enjoyable.


5 stars

I cooked these in fajita seasoning and they were very tasty and good "meatball like" texture.


1 stars

Couldn't eat even one of these. Only pro is that they didn't add any flavour to the rest of the sauce


1 stars

I was shocked how disgusting these are....one bite i was even unable to swallow..my bodys reaction was to spit it out. I only eat a vegan diet. I use some meat replacements and enjoy them but this was my first time for using a Tesco product ..this was AWFUL. In case its a bad batch heres the barcode no 5 057753940379 I COULD ONLY SUBMIT THIS BY GIVING A STAR...ITS THE ONLY REASON IT GOT ONE

Awful taste

1 stars

Awful taste. Looks like meat but has a very strange taste.

Weird texture, not for me

2 stars

I used in a tomato sauce with pasta. They were a weird texture and tasted artificial. I would not purchase these again.

Disappointingly contains PALM OIL

3 stars

Firm and held together cooking. Taste ok but not huge amounts of flavour. Very disappointing for any vegan or vegetarian (or anyone really) concerned with environment as 3rd listed ingredient is PALM OIL. Won't buy again.

If I could give 0 I would. These were disgusting,

1 stars

If I could give 0 I would. These were disgusting, hard and slimey. Horrible texture and smell, the worse thing I’ve ever tasted.
