Tesco Value Fish Fingers
Disadvantages: She didn't like them!
This is a review of Tesco Value Fish Fingers. Whilst trying to keep the shopping bill down I was buying an assortment of finger food type meals to try our nearly two year old daughter with as she becomes more adventurous and learns about chewing her food! I was prepared that she may refuse these so was prepared for them to go almost straight in the bin.
The box looks a lot better now Tesco have switched from their blue stripey 'value' range to their Everyday Value packaging and it pictures a plate of the fish fingers cooked with a slice of lemon and some other related icons in shades of blue, such as peas, cutlery, condiments and lemon slices etc. As the contents touch the inside of the box (slightly waxed pack inside) you can't recycle the box which is a bit of a shame.
The box promises the product to be skinless and boneless, made with 100% white fish fillet, no artificial preservatives, flavours or colours. You can find them in the freezer department and cook straight from frozen in 12 minutes or grill in 8-10 minutes, shallow fry in 6-8 minutes or deep fry in 4-6 minutes. I usually oven cook as I find they turn out better and are more healthy this way.
Upon tipping the product out of the box, I thought the breadcrumbs looked really orange and the fish fingers themselves quite small. Cooked though, they looked nice when broken up and were served with some sauce to our daughter with some peas.
Hit or miss?
She didn't like them. She ate all the peas and left the fish fingers. I don't think it would have mattered what brand they were, she just wasn't bothered! I served the rest up in a fish finger sandwich snack to the hubby when he was starving (and I wasn't as I just didn't fancy them!) so I have to say he thought they were OK but I know he wouldn't choose to buy these himself.
A pack of 10 fish fingers costs 60p (250g) which is cheaper than the branded versions. For this I thought they were worth trying.
For the price these are OK. I think any big fish finger fans may think they are a bit mean in size. I won't be buying them again though I may try them in a few years on our new daughter!
I think that the packaging is good and the contents fair for the price. The fish inside looked good quality if not a little mean and they were quick and simple to cook.
Summary: Not a repurchase for me
