These are the best Anchovy Fillets, in this price range, I could buy in the UK. Unlike the other branded competitors on the same shelf, they did actually taste of anchovy, rather than just of salt. The flesh consistency is also closer to what I recall I could get in Southern Europe. I hope that they will be back in stock soon.
AVOID. Deceptive labelling, taste bad & poor value
Deceptive labelling, taste bad and poor value. These cost 50% more than the similar (and actually better) product in other supermarkets. Also, while the wording on the front of the tin infers these anchovies are in Olive Oil, they aren’t really. If you look on the back you will see that only 6% of the oil used is Olive Oil. The bulk of the oil used is Sunflower Oil. So, these are really anchovies in 94% Sunflower Oil, and 6% Olive Oil. I wouldn’t say that a virtually 20:1 ratio is worthy of the words ‘in Olive Oil’ on the front of the tin (with no mention of Sunflower Oil) The front wording is clearly designed to deceive. Frankly, these should be pulled from the shelves and repackaged. Ironic for a product labelled as ‘finest’, when even the standard anchovies in most supermarkets are packaged in 100% olive oil as standard. In any case, most likely due to the sunflower oil, these taste bad. AVOID.
good taste but more bones than the regular anchovi

anchovies fine, lid lethal!
Product fine but tin impossible to open by rolling back!
Sorry. Not as good as the usual Tesco version which doesn't seem to be available any more. I couldn't remove them from the tin easily as they were all stuck together. When they were eventually prised apart they seemed to lack flavour. Disappointing.
Not for me
This product is not as good as the old one, the quality of the fish is terrible, very hard and some sort of white tinge to the fish, very off putting. The oil was not good either
Plump, fresh and tender, but salty.
Plump, fresh and tender. Quite salty but that wasn't a problem when eaten with other unsalted food.
Simply Devine. I wish I was a Blue Whale so I could eat 160,000 of these in one mouthful…
Tasty, tender and good quality
