“ Brand: Asda / Type: Potato „
Luckily for me, my daughter seems to have passed through the picky eater stage of her life, now at least willing to try new foods before deciding whether or not she likes them, unfortunately my son is still well and truly stuck in there!
Out of the very few things he is willing to eat for dinners, I am pleased to say the product I will now review is one of the things he tried and actually liked, though only due to the fact they are what he thinks are miniature of his normal favourites.
The product I will now review is - "Asda - mini potato & carrot waffles".
As with many of the Asda own branded frozen items, the packaging is peasant enough, but of course not extravagant, preferring to spend the extra money on the product (I hope!).
This product comes in a plastic bag, holding all the relevant information needed, product name, brand name, description, cooking method (?) and a rather delicious looking pile of the waffles cooked and waiting to be munched on....as you may have gathered I like these too!
Within the 454g bag, there are around 20ish miniature waffles, which aside from the size, the only difference being the colour, which is orange from the carrot, though once cooked this is disguised due to the golden brown these turn.
Cooking is very easy and due to the size reasonably quick too!
These should be laid in a single layer on a baking sheet, then placed into a medium to high heat oven (200 degree C, gas mark 6, 400 F), for 15 - 20 minutes.
Once cooked these turn a golden brown and the smell is as the smell that emanates from a normal waffle, like mashed potato.
The taste is again very similar to that of a normal waffle, crispy on the outside, fluffy potato on the inside and very, very tasty, though not as greasy on the tongue.
There is a very slight sweetness to it, but I have to say I prefer these to the original standard potato version.
The nutritional information is as follows -
Per 4 mini waffles,
1.1 g protein,
0.4g of which sugars,
2.5g of which saturates,
There is no allergy advice on this product, but does state that this suitable for vegetarians and is free from hydrogenated fats, artificial colours and flavourings.
Price wise this is available for around the £1.00 mark for a bag.
