Trade Descriptions Infringement here Tesco
This is not a cod bite in my mind. Too much stodge inside, mainly potato. Picked these up from the reduced chiller without reading. If I had taken the time to read that they contain minced cod (uh) I would have left them in chiller. Agree with others these should be re-packaged as Cheesy Fish Cakes or similar. The only redeeming feature, they are crispy on the outside but that is probably down to the work of my excellent fan oven.
These are a bit lacking in substance. They’re sort of like mini fish cakes. They’re a bit mushy and not very cheesy, or fishy. I was expecting a bit more from them. I wouldn’t purchase them again. But they’re an easy and ok meal to grab from the freezer, if you’re really reaching.
Like old style fishcakes, yum
Other reviews are saying these are not very cheesy or fishy and they're right - but they are also like the fishcakes from my childhood and very yummy due to that. Lovely with some salad and a side of sour cream or tartare sauce, maybe some good quality bread (though also nice with alphabites - my inner child was delighted). So yes, not a premium grown up product but delicious.
Stop selling before they ruin your reputation.
We do most of our shopping at Tescos and have for years. In a hunt for Birds eye crispy cod balls ( no longer available) we came across these, pleased with our find we bought 3 packets. My wife cooked some of them that night. I am sorry but they were revolting. ? They didn't have a single redeeming feature; soggy, almost no taste of fish just potatoes and a nasty cheese taste. It took me quite a while to remove the taste from my mouth. My wife, luckily, upon seeing my reaction just nibbled a bit. We both spat out what we could. The rest went straight in the bin. We have never had a reaction like this to anything else we have bought from Tesco. It will remain our main shopping store, but we will be far more cautious from now on.
Mini fish cakes, certainly not Cheesy Cod Bites!
These are not cheesy cod bites, these are just mini fish cakes with loads of potato and no bite, no cheese... if they were sold as mini cod fish cakes I’d be happier, but they certainly aren’t what you’d imagine from the name. But if a let down, luckily served them with Bird’s Eye chunky fish fingers so got the flaky fish fix I was looking for.
I liked them - very much like the fishcakes I had at school! But I did buy them (reduced) thinking they would be more goujon-like, with actual pieces of fish. They'd be better named Cod Fishcake Bites.
Awful, the filling was just like fish cakes I had at school 40 years ago, tangy taste but virtually no cheese colour grey/brown I cooked as instructed but dry as a bone needed lots of water to swill it down , gave up trying to eat them on the fourth one.These were a substitute for the crispy battered cod pieces. I shall TICK on the order NO SUBSTITUTE and will NEVER buy or recomend to anyone Tesco Cheesy Cod Bites
Avoid. Mushy cod, very little cheese.
Hardly any cheese, rarely taste it, and the cod is processed gooey mush.
