Fatty scaly pilchards
Author Name: jan
Advantages: tasty tomato sauce
Disadvantages: large amounts of fat and large scales on some fish
I have been a lifelong eater of Glenryck pilchards. But last year I decided not to purchase Glenryck pilchards ever again due to eating a number of substandard tins. In one tin there was only 1 huge pilchard inside covered in a thick layer of fat. It was so big there was very little room for the tomato sauce. The second tin had 2 pilchards inside and hardly any tomato sauce, again covered in an, unpleasant thick layer of fat. The third, fourth, fifth, etc were all the same. In addition the scales on the pilchards were so large that they stuck in my teeth and were difficult to swallow. due to the sharpness of the scales.
After a series of e-mails and letters of complaint there was no response from Glenryck.
As a result, I didn't eat pilchards for months. I now only buy and eat Princes pilchards !!
