Please note before I go any further on this product review that I am not reviewing 'Quiche Lorraine!'. I am reviewing the bacon, leek & cheese quiche which is another variety of Weightwatchers quiche and the reason I am here is because Dooyoo have directed me to write this review here...so here I am lol!
The other day out shopping in my local Tesco I was yet again hungry and I love quiche. Just coming out the gym though I decided that no matter what I was being healthy so in my mind I had ruled out any such type of food thinking it wouldn't be healthy until I spotted this and a pound for a whole single serving of quiche I knew I had to try it.
Now me, I'm no longer a Weightwatcher. I was though for just over a year! I lost 7 stone with the regime though I don't remember when I was dieting this product ever being available because with my love of pastry I would have loved it back then.
I was never keen on Weightwatchers food stuff however. Sure I liked the brownie slices and carrot cakes but in the main I cooked up my own concoctions and I used to buy alot of Tesco Healthy Living products which displayed the Weightwatchers points so I knew what I was doing.
However like i say I was hungry and trying to be good and so I decided to give this a whirl!
Square, white cardboard box and on the front there is a photograph of the quiche. I am told it is 'New' Bacon, Leek & Cheese Quiche 'A smoked bacon, leek and cheese quiche, made using free range eggs, and oven baked in a shortcrust pastry', the size is stated which is 165g, I'm told it is 6 points (if following Weightwatchers points), that it heats in 20 minutes in the oven and the best before date is clearly stamped on there. Other information on the box includes nutritional information, storage instructions (it is suitable for freezing), heating instructions are given, ingredients and allergy advice is listed and contact details for Weightwatchers are also given. It's a nice looking box and informative enough.
Well I opened up my box to be greeted with as I mentioned earlier with a rather large single serving of quiche sat in a foil tray. You can eat this hot or cold and I decided on cold.
Well what can I say? Appearances can be deceptive? Yes it looked the part. Light golden pastry, fluted around the edges with the base of it the same and it was full of like pale cream coloured egg custard and gave off a slight smoked bacon aroma. Yep I was excited!
However talk about sloppy and messy to eat! The pastry was a little bland but it was thick enough and did sort of melt in the mouth. If we're going to pick at that it wasn't buttery or well seasoned but it held the quiche together well though it had a soggy base.
That's the only positive I can find really! The filling was plentiful but so bland. Well I say bland it had an odd sweet taste to it and was incredibly salty. It was so sloppy when I cut into it it just caved in making a mess on my plate that really off put me. The egg filling was watery, rubbery and like I said bland. The reformed bacon pieces were small but plentiful and tasted like bacon with a slight smokiness to it but it was a bit slimy and again very salted indeed. The leek pieces were ok, no complaints there but my taste-buds couldn't detect the cheese with the overwhelming onion and salt flavourings going on.
To me this was quite simply..well rank. It fell apart, looked horrible and tasted not good at all and this to me optimises what diet, low fat food is. Bland and boring and the whole reason people start to eat junk again lol. Not for me this, they've took a heap of stuff out and added the contents of a salt pot to it with some sort of powdered milk. Yuk!
