Weird taste almost inedible
Totally dry and bland
Found this extremely dry and really bland. No sign of fried onions at all nor any other veg, aside from a few flecks of greens. Though the portion size of pasta is quite generous, I wouldn't buy this again because of the lack of other ingredients and complete absence of flavour.
A little dry but still delicious flavour!
First of all, everyone calm down. It doesn’t say on the box that it’s in a creamy cheese sauce. It’s in a butternut sauce. I’ll admit it is a little on the dry side compared to the Mac and cheese I remember eating before I went vegan, however the taste is great. I’m sure some of these people are forgetting to stir it halfway. I stirred it halfway and added some salt and nooch (nutritional yeast). You could at the point probably add some vegan cream if you wanted it more creamy. But, again as a stand-alone meal it’s fine and to me (and I’m an onion and garlic addict) it did not seem to have too much garlic or onion? So if you’re looking for your pasta drowning in sauce, this isn’t it. However if you’re just looking for a delicious and filling pasta meal this is great!
Don’t know why people are leaving bad reviews for this. I’m a dedicated vegan and I really enjoyed this meal. Perfect amount of creaminess coupled with perfect seasoning. Thank you Tesco, I’d ignore all other reviews if I were you, this is a seasoned vegan saying that this meal absolutely kicks 👌👌👌
Definitely not worth the money - disgusting
Looks really yummy at a first glance but as soon as I heated it up and dished it out it had such a sour vinegary smell to it. There isn't really a sauce so its dry/almost sticky and the taste is really sour too. I very rarely throw meals away but this had to go straight in the bin as it was making me feel sick.
Boring and bland
Since turning vegan 2 years ago, mac and cheese is the one meal I have really missed. I have yet to find either a ready made or recipe which provides a suitable substitute. Having tried (and been impressed by the range, quality and flavour of Wicked I was looking forward to this. Sadly it's not great. The whole meal lacks any depth of flavour except for a pungent garlic aftertaste. I felt the meal is also too dry. Man and cheese needs sauce. The small amount there is clings to the macaroni in little globules. The dish is also crying out for a nice 'cheese' topping, not onion which was once crispy, but reheating leaves sticky and mushy with an almost sour smell and after taste. Its a real shame, because this has the potential to be so tasty. I don't recommend. I only hope Tesco read all these reviews and take this back to the tasting panel to redevelop.
I’ve never reviewed a food product online before but had to write a review about this one. It is the worst ready meal I’ve ever had. Can’t believe how disgusting it is. All it tastes of is onion and now the whole house sticks. It’s actually made me feel sick after just a few bites. I would avoid at all costs!! So so disappointing, it’s going straight in the bin.
Probably one of the most disappointing meals ever.
Probably one of the most disappointing meals ever. Tastes of nothing. Don't waste your money. 2* because it was at least edible.
I’ve enjoyed stuff from Wicked Kitchen before but this was just awful. Really unpleasant, strange, and almost sour taste - could only bear to have a couple of bites!
I thought I had COVID
I took a few bites of this and was convinced I had COVID until I managed to start tasting the plastic underneath. I bought this for lunch at work, I'm not vegan but you can't eat meat for every meal of the day. Its tastes of nothing but the plastic underneath and the herb thrown on top (the box says it's parsley). It is absolutely tasteless and all I can feel is oil/grease on my lips. Luckily I work right next to a supermarket so I can buy something with flavour for lunch. Such a shame because it looked pretty decent.
