“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Frozen Food „
I have always been hesitant about eating frozen fruit and vegetables as I always assumed that they would be of a really poor quality. My partner introduced me to Tesco's packs of frozen diced onions and mushrooms and I was really pleasantly surprised that I could barely taste a difference. I really love corn on the cob but it is quite expensive to buy fresh. I prefer to have products in that I can just eat when I fancy it so frozen products are really convenient for me. When I saw this pack in Tesco I thought I would give it a go as it was only £1.50 for a pack of ten so if they tasted really bad I wouldn't have lost out on too much money!
The corn can be cooked in either the microwave or on the hob. I cooked mine on the hob - it was really easy and mess free. I simply had to add the corn to a pan of boiling water and then leave it to simmer for around 7 minutes.
I took them out after 8 minutes and they were cooked perfectly to my liking. I added some butter and they tasted lovely. I could not detect a difference between this product and the fresh corn on the cob available. It is really cost effective and very convenient - I can just store the pack in the fridge and cook them on the hob in just 7 minutes when I have a craving.
I really like corn on the cob, takes around 5mins to cook on the hob, serve with butter, salt and pepper and yum yum. Seems to taste so much better than just corn on its own. I usually by the fresh stuff from tescos, but I thought I'd give the frozen stuff a go as it is cheaper and keeps for longer. For 4 fresh mini corn on the cobs in tescos you will pay about £2, a big (1kg) bag of the frozen stuff (with about 10 cobs) is about £1.40, so a major price difference. Also you wont find it gone off in the back of your fridge weeks later having forgotten about it and in the bin they go, gutted when that happens :(
The cobs can be cooked on the hob or microwaved in about 7 minutes, they take slightly longer than the fresh stuff because they are frozen, but only a few mins longer. They look very appetising, having a bright yellow appearance, the taste is good, however I do find them to be slightly chewy compared to the fresh stuff which is a bit disappointing :(
Overall I probably would by them again, but as a special treat I would probably go for the fresh stuff as the texture is that much better.
Tesco frozen mini corn on the cobs are just such a great idea. You pay at least £1.50, usually more, for a small pack of fresh corn on the cobs that have been sat around on a shelf for a few days. I like the idea of being able to get all kinds of vegetables frozen as of course they've been frozen soon after being picked and so they retain much more of their freshness.
These cost £1 for a bag full of mini frozen cobs. I haven't counted them, obviously, but at a guess I'd say there are around 8 little cobs in a bag. That's a darn site cheaper than when you buy them fresh. They don't take very long to cook, and can be boiled or microwaved in under five minutes from frozen.
Once cooked these are super tasty little things. They taste very clean, crisp and fresh, and they have a really pleasant sweet taste to them. The only thing to be aware of with these is that they can taste a bit too watery if you boil them from frozen for too long, so be sure you keep checking them and get them out just as soon as they're done. If cooked properly they're perfect though. I don't think I've ever had a 'naff cob' from one of these packs.
I really rate these and think they make a great addition to a family meal. One packet will easily serve the whole family, and these are a lot cheaper than the fresh equivilents. They're cheap, tasty and very convenient. And of course being frozen means they have a long life and you there's no chance of waste as well. Five stars from me.
