“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Seafood „
Tesco sent this with our online order this week as a substitute for some other prawn thing my mum had ordered, nobody else in the house fancied it so I had some in a pitta bread for my lunch today.
I'm not that impressed, the prawns are very small and not as meaty as they should be. The marie rose sauce is a lower fat one and it doesn't taste very nice, it's quite sweet and hasn't got a rich flavour at all. The strongest taste in my lunch was the pitta bread and that's not right! lol
Looking at the pack I don't think it's that LIGHT either because this 140g tub has got 16g fat in it and 210 calories and that's before you've even counted the pitta bread or whatever you're having it with!
There aren't that many prawns in the cocktail so I got loads of mouth fulls of pitta bread that had got just sauce in it, that's not good because like I said the sauce isn't very nice so it kind of spoilt my lunch. The sauce tastes to me like a weak flavoured ketchup and nothing like the sauce you usually get with prawns.
The cocktail is majorly boring and because of the prawns being so small you haven't even got much of a prawn taste in it and that means it's not a prawn cocktail at all!!! The sauce has got quite a nice texture and when you have it straight out of the fridge it's refreshing but with it being a light product it's the flavour that needs more work doing to it and even if I was dieting I could do better than this with prawns and a nicer sauce!
If you like it I reckon it would go nice on a jacket potato because like I said there's loads of sauce in the pot so it would make the potato nice and moist without you having to add butter.
I didn't like it at all though and thought it was the most boring prawn cocktail I've ever eaten.
Not recommended..... hardly any prawns, boring taste and not even low fat!
