“ Brand: Findus / Type: Other Ready Meals „
When it comes to snacky type foods, of late I have been purchasing them. I get hungry late evening and can't be bothered to cook so have been binging on crisps and cakes and the likes to get me by so the other day when I spotted some snack type foods on offer in my local Asda store I decided to get a few and pop them in the freezer in the hope that they would be a little more filling and a little more healthy! The Packaging: These come in boxes that contain 2 wraps and the box is red and oblong in shape with a photograph of the wraps on the front of it and we are told that they are Findus 2 Spicy Three Bean Wraps 'Delicious tortilla wraps filled with borlotti, cannellini and red kidney beans in a spicy tomato sauce' and that you can cook them from frozen, are suitable for Vegetarians and have a medium heat to them in the way of spice. Other information on the back of the box includes ingredients and allergy advice given, heating instructions and a full nutritional chart are listed, the weight is listed which is 200g and contact details for Findus are given. Nice enough informative packaging this is. The Wraps: The wraps are very skinny in appearance and long with a tortilla wrapped tight. Inside you get a red coloured mushed up mixture of beans, full beans.... and not bits but squishy and tasting overcooked to me sadly. To cook them by the way is simple and all you have to do is pop them in the microwave (from frozen) for about 3 minutes. Along with the soggy mix of beans which is plentiful you get a spicy tomato sauce infused with onions and chilli powder and you can taste a little oregano in there too. Not only do I not appreciate soggy, mildly spicy beans but the tortilla itself is rather flavourless and rubbery too! In my opinion these are not very tasty or filling, are messy to eat as the bean mixture falls out (watch out you don't scold yourself!) and I think even on offer at a pound a box they are not it worth it lol.
