If a year ago someone said to me that I would be eating this product I wouldn't of believed them. I was a vegetarian as a child, none of the rest of my family were but for some reason I just didn't like the texture or taste of meat. I remember when my mum used to buy these and I have never had any desire to try them. My partner loves faggots, for reasons im not entirely sure about, I will now eat them on occasions but after a couple of mouth fulls they do taste (to me) slightly fowl. Im not sure if it is just this brand or faggots in general that taste this way as I have never seen or tried another brand before. I would say the product is a little ... Read the complete review

*WHERE FROM & HOW MUCH* I purchased my Mr Brains Pork Faggots from Nett (the first time I have ever set foot inside one). They are commonly available in most supermarkets and frozen food shops. I paid £1.50 for a pack of 6, although I know that Iceland recently had a pack of 4 for 75p. *Nutritional Bits* Per serving (238g - which is approx two faggots) 241 calories 12.0g protein 10.3g fat 4.1g salt equivalent *Cooking* From frozen in the oven for around 45 minutes, or in the microwave (transferred to a microwaveable container for 13 - 18 minutes depending on wattage! *Packaging* Packaged in a ...

I haven't a clue why these are listed as "Tesco" products, because my dad buys these yet hasn't set foot in a Tesco in several years. Strange. Mr. Brains' Faggots (yes, get the laughter out of the way now) are certainly an acquired taste, and you wouldn't be remiss for asking "Well, what on Earth are they?". Most of my friends have never heard of them let alone eaten them, but they are in fact incrediby simple, and can be either microwaved, or if you're patient enough, cooked in the oven at greater length. The four faggots come in a tray-like box which is complete with a wealth of soupy gravy that's got quite a tang to it rather ... Read the complete review

The shop by me sells Mr Brains faggots for £1.00 for the pack of 4 and that's a major bargain, I don't know why he sells them so cheap buy that's his usual price for them and it has been for over a year! My mum buys some every week because even though they take ages to cook you can just bung them in the oven and forget about them so it makes them handy to have in the freezer. Faggots are minced and crushed up pork that is made into balls and frozen in a thick gravy. They come in like a takeaway container and all you have to do is loosen the cardboard lid and cook them for about 45 minutes. Not everyone likes these faggots but I love them. They ...

**** Introduction **** I always remember as a child my mother trying to force feed us kids fagots, as a child I hated them and cant really remember trying them, I think is was the name to put me off. While in Tesco last week I found these on offer for £1.29 and my partner said that he loved them, so I thought if they are good enough for him they are certainly good enough for me, so I chucked them in the trolley. **** The Fagots **** These are produced by the Mr brains company, which I feel may have added to my dislike of these as a child. The actual product contained four dumpling sized pork fagots, in a thick gravy ... Read the complete review
