I’m really not sure why there are some crazy negative reviews about this product. It’s not bad and I’m fussy. It’s not exactly like the consistency of halloumi, more squishy, but it’s made with coconut oil so it’s obviously going to be less firm. I fried it lightly for a few minutes because again, thinking about the fact it contains coconut oil I thought it might break up if left too long, but no strong smell as stated in other reviews. It has more of a light cheesy flavour than I expected. It’s good for the odd craving or recipe that requires halloumi. Actually think it might be good as a mozzarella substitute on pizza.
I'm so sorry this was awful. Like eating lumps of sick. thanks for trying though.
I am really glad that manufacturers keep trying,
I am really glad that manufacturers keep trying, but sadly this doesn’t cut it. It has that usual vegan cheese smell as you open the pack, and when grilled, becomes very gluey. If you haven’t eaten Halloumi for many years, this may get a pass.
Believe the review I'm 100% Greek!
I had high hopes for this product. Unfortunately, eating it cold straight from the packet not particularly good. While frying this just ended up melting into nothing, leaving an unpleasant smell. Don't waste your money or yours too will end up in the bin.
Absolutely loved it!
Not sure how the other people in the reviews are cooking it or whether Tesco have updated their ingredients in this but we LOVED it. We fried it up and it went nice and crisp, texture was good and tasted lovely. We have been vegan for a while and don't use substitute products often but this is one we will use more!
Grim. Do not buy.
I wish I had read the reviews because this is grim. Smells terrible, tastes really really strong of fake cheese (think cheap cheese curls crisps) and the texture is totally off. I think there is a reason this is the only alternative to halloumi on the market - because there is no alternative. I'd rather go without than eat this.
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.
