If you buy Smoked Mackerel pate you don't expect it to be smoked salmon as well. It is a very strange colour and did not smell or taste of Mackerel. Which if you don't Mackerel fine, but I bought it as I do. Will not be buying again.
New is not better
I agree with everyone else, the new recipe has an awful texture. The old one was perfect, why would you change it.
This has reappeared after being unavailable for some time. New recipe-very poor taste and texture- now like cheap paste. Even the cat refused to eat it. Please bring back old recipe.
New recipe horrible
This used to be my favourite but the last one was awful horrible taste and texture and it seemed smaller quantity. Please can we have the old recipe back.
Really not as good as the old recipe, which I love
Really not as good as the old recipe, which I loved. I won't buy it again. This one is thicker and less delicate, with a sour aftertaste.
Change for the worse
I agree with the other review. They've totally changed it (colour & texture as well as fish content) since i bought it a few weeks ago! It IS like fish paste and at only 44% mackerel I won't be buying this again. Very disappointed :-(
They changed its ingredients or something and its horrible now - smells/ looks/ taste (?) like cat's food. The "old" version was great and i was buying it all the time but i'll stay away from this one.. such a shame!
This is not pâté it is the smell, taste and texture of shiphams fish paste. It is disgusting. I have always purchased Tesco smoked mackerel pate but this is not it. It is even a different colour. I was suspicious about the product when the expiry date is June so goodness knows what is in it. Whatever you do don’t buy it.
New Smoked Mackerel Pate
I rarely do any reviews but I really don't like this, it doesn't taste as nice as the previous product which is reported as removed from range. Sorry Tesco, please go back to the original product / recipe, it was so much nicer than this replacement
