I thought that i would write a review on this product after consuming it not long ago. I am not a huge fan of coleslaw (unless it's homemade) and decided to try this one as it looked quite chunky and home made almost.
The pot was 500g and split in to two segments. On the left was some potato salad. I didn't try this as I am not a fan of this at the best of times and didn't really want to try it again today. On the right hand side was the coleslaw. It looked very tasty. It looked chunky and not too creamy, which is what initially made me want to try it.
I added some to my salad and tried it straight away. I liked the taste. It didn't taste horrible and plastic like some others that I have tried from supermarkets and I liked that the carrots/cabbage etc were quite chunky. This gave it a very crunchy feel, for which I enjoyed a lot. It made my salad taste a lot better to say the least.
From the front of the pot you could see the potato salad and coleslaw as it was a clear pot with minimal writing over the top of it (different to the picture above). It had the nutritional information clearly stated on the front and said that a 3rd of the pot was about 250 calories, so don't consume too much!
I don't know how much this product cost as I didn't buy it so I can't comment on price I'm afraid but id deffinatly recommend it, especially if it's sold separate to the potato salad .
I tend to grab a coleslaw and some fresh bread when I go out to have as a tasty snack when I get in from shopping and so when I recently visited my local Sainsburys that's what I did. As I don't normally shop there I couldn't decide which one to go for and on this particular day there weren't many to chose from. So I grabbed the coleslaw and potato salad, which gave me a better selection and it was pretty cheap too. I grabbed my bread and continued with my Saturday shop. It wasn't until later that I got home and went to have a bite to eat that I noticed how unappetising the look of the coleslaw was. I tried a little on the corner of the bread and realised just how flavourless it was too.
In my opinion coleslaw should be creamy even when it's a low fat alternative it should come in a good sauce and the chunks should be thinly cut. In this case the Sainsburys coleslaw was in a very boring sauce and the look of the cabbage onions and carrots looked an odd shade as though they weren't that fresh. I decided to have the potato salad, which was quite good, and this luckily made up for the fact that I couldn't eat the coleslaw.
