I have been vegetarian for a while now and I'm trying to transition into a vegan, so have been trying out many similar products recently. I wish I had read these reviews, because I might have stayed away from this. It is absolutely disgusting. I could hardly slice it, it was as hard as a rock, the smell was off-putting and tasted just as bad. Please, take it off the shelves!!!!
3x times too salty
Great consistency, but way tooooo salty for me. Please fix it and I will continue buying it :)
Do not buy
VILE DO NOT BUY!!!!!! It’s disgusting, made the whole house smell like vomit, husband is in the dog house for not reading the reviews before he bought it, it’s not even worth rating any stars, stinks like sick, put it in with a stir fry and had to throw the whole out, it’s not just unpleasant it’s offensive, like many others, how on earth is this on sale, it is not edible. As you can tell extremely unsatisfied, it’s not what it’s advertised as, it does not resemble anything close to halloumi, perhaps a year old tramps socks is the closest truest description.
Surprised by how cheesy this is
Not like halloumi but actually delicious. I’m amazed by the bad reviews. This is so cheesy. I’m having it in toasties and on meals. Has a consistency of warm naan bread when grilled and warm but very cheesy (gluey in a good way). Huge praise for this. A good option along with other vegan products - keep them coming!!
Disgusting, nothing like Halloumi. Wish the tesco app had reviews so I didn't buy it in the first place!
Great halloumi alternative
I’m not sure how this got some really bad reviews, I think it’s great! I fried it and it was delicious! Will definitely have again.
Made me want to cry
Uncooked this might be just about bearable, but once cooked it turns into an abomination. With an ultra-thick glue-like texture and a flavour of tangy vomit, we couldn’t finish our meals. Even my partner, who eats an array of very questionable foods, gagged and felt sick. While it may sound it, I am not exaggerating. The fact that this made it to the shelves is astounding.
Definitely not even worth trying
Not sure how this got past product testing, it is so bad. We didn't expect it to be realistic but to be honest it tastes and smells like vom. Just sort of melts into a congealed mess when cooking.
Awful! Nothing like halloumi. I can usually cope with vegan cheese, but this was not fit for purpose.
