“ Brand: Discovery / Type: Sauces „
I tried these sauces when they first came out as I thought it was a great idea for anyone who loves Mexican food, but I wouldn't recommend them.
When I tried them they were all £1.00 on special offer however I think now they are about £1.70 each, I got the Salsa (hot), the sour cream, and the guacamole.
The salsa, even though I got the hot one, was not very spicy. The main flavour was tomatoes, which is about right for a salsa, but it didn't taste of much else. There was a hint of coriander but not much. The texture of this was extremely thick, and even though it was in a squeezy bottle it came out in big blobs, so you couldn't for instance squeeze a long line of it on a fajita.
The sour cream was a bit better, but it had a much smaller opening than the salsa so was a bit easier to use and actually put on food, but at times it was very hard to get any out. The sour cream had a very creamy taste but not much of the usual twang you get with sour cream, and it wasn't incredibly flavourful, but it was the best of the three that I tried.
This was easily the worst of the 3 sauces that I tried. Not only did it taste and look disgusting, it was so difficult to get out of the bottle. The colour of this was a really strange green, not the usual vibrant green that most guacamoles are. It tasted very powdery and just like avocado and not much else. When I tried to get it out it tended to spit out of the bottle in big clumps and splattered everywhere, I think this was because it was so thick.
All of these sauces have quite a short expiration date on them, so unless you eat them everyday for a week, you will have to throw most of them away. I found this really annoying as there is just simply no benefit to these sauces. They don't taste great, and they only last a couple of days, and they are harder to work with than a pot.
I think if you were having a lot of people round they would be good for that but as they taste so bland, I wouldn't recommend them.
A completely pointless, bad quality product.
