It smelt so bad like.. drainage smell when opening
It smelt so bad like.. drainage smell when opening that me and my partner thought it was the dishwasher. When we smelt it my partner nearly threw up and it subsequently went into the bin.
so similar to chicken
the best tasting vegan chicken so similar to chicken
Wouldnt buy again
Found it very salty, more than I'd expect from 'salt and pepper' flavour. Texture ok. But wouldn't buy again.
I've been vegan for over 20 years, and have tried every kind of meat substitute. This is one of the worst - the smell was awful, the texture 'clammy', and it tasted as if it had gone bad. This kind of product actually makes me rather angry, as it risks putting people off vegan products, when there are so many great-tasting substitutes out there. Such a shame Tesco no longer stock Frys chicken and beef strips, my go-to substitutes for many years.
Definitely not for us, others may disagree!
Followed cooking instructions exactly, having read the reviews, but smelled odd, tasted odd, looked ok though, to be fair. Never again for us, but it's always worth trying new products, in case you find the perfect...whatever!
Not for sensitive noses!
The smell is unpleasant and overpowering when you open the packet - instantly reminded me of 'on the turn' raw chicken. I almost threw it straight in the bin but it was well within it's use by date and then I read a few reviews which confirmed this is normal! Very large pieces which do hold together. Texture is close to that of a chicken thigh, but the flavour is off. It's probably the closest vegetarian thing you can get to chicken but I think I'd rather stick to replacing the chicken part of a meal with a vegetables, beans and/or mushrooms. I wont buy again.
Really really yummy. As a meateater trying to eat less meat, I've been trying lots of alternatives and this is the best I've tried so far. The flavour is lovely and the texture is spot on. Will definitely buy again.
A good chicken substitute
Lightly fried in vegetable oil this is good eno9ugh to eat on its own, not needing loads of sauces or other flavours for taste. I have also used it in a home made curry. It keeps firm when cooked and the texture is chicken like. It does smell a bit odd when the packet is first opened but don;t be put off by that. I have also frozen it and cooked from defrosted, it still tastes the same.Definitely a winner for me.
BEST substitute chicken
Best chicken substitute we’ve had!!! We tried the bacon and didn’t like it so was hesitant to try more THIS products but it’s amazing! Even smells like chicken really impressed
Terrible taste. I didnt mind the texture but it sm
Terrible taste. I didnt mind the texture but it smells a lot too so be warned it will smell in the fridge unless very well wrapped up once opened!
