“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Sauces „
I regularly buy Sainsbury's Deli-Filler Free Range Egg Mayo because it's just a really good quality product that transforms any sandwich. A 230g pot of Sainsbury's Deli-Filler Free Range Egg Mayo costs £1.60 from Sainsburys, which I feel is a really good price and one that I'm perfectly willing to pay. I actually really like it added to sandwiches, so, for example, adding it to a ham sandwich or a cheese sandwich - and it just gives it another element which lifts it.
The ego mayo comes in a little plastic tub which is transparent and so you can see the product before you buy it. The tub has a resealable lid and this helps to keep it fresh once the tub has been opened, which is important as I would never use the whole tub in one go. The shelf life is about a week and so this is obviously a decent shelf life, although obviously it needs to be kept in the fridge.
The ego mayo looks as you would expect egg mayo to look. It is not too sloppy as there is a decent amount of egg in the mix and the mayo is used as the binder rather than the main event which I have seen in other products. It has a nice taste to it, although I do tend to feel the need to add a little seasoning - usually a little black pepper and cayenne pepper and that's perfect. I do also like to add a handful of chives because this brings the flavours out perfectly. It is quite calorific, but this is one of the reasons that I tend to add a small layer of it to a sandwich, rather than having this as the main basis of the sandwich.
Overall, I feel this is a good product and I will continue to buy it.
Whilst I was doing my shopping in Sainsburys I spotted this egg mayonnaise sandwich filler had been reduced to 45p because it was going to be out of date the next day. I was going to buy something for my lunch anyway so I thought I would give it a try.
The sandwich filler comes in a clear plastic pot that has a removable lid. I like the fact that it is see through so you can see exactly what you are buying. There is a sticky label that comes right across the lid and pot, so you can see at a glance if it had been tampered with .
On the back of the label there are all the ingredients, nutritional information and contact details.
The sandwich filler is a pale yellow colour, it doesn't look overly appealing but the taste makes up for this.
It is very thick and creamy, this makes it easy to spoon out and also it doesn't make the bread go soggy when used in a sandwich.
It has a strong smell of eggs, which you would expect with an egg mayonnaise filler, it wasn't unpleasant just very eggy which I know a lot of people would dislike.
The taste test - I added the filler to a sandwich and well one word sums it up Yum. It has a very generous portion of egg which I was surprised by, I always thought these sort of things were all mouth and little substance. The most dominant taste was the egg but there was a nice peppery taste which was quite subtle but added a bit of pizzazz to the traditional flavour. It tasted gorgeously creamy and was extremely moreish.
You are not limited to using this in sandwiches, I think it would taste really nice on a jacket potato or with a salad.
I used about a third of the pot for my sandwich which was more than generously filled, the filler I bought was a 400g tub, however it is also available in a 170g and 250g tub. Once opened it must be eaten within two days so it would be good to bare that in mind when choosing what size to buy.
Each 100g or a quarter of the pot provides 183kcal, 15.0g ( 2,2 of which are saturates) and 0.75g. I won't list the entire ingredients list but amongst other things it does contain Free Range Hard Boiled Egg, Free Range Mayonnaise, Rapeseed Oil, Dijon Mustard and Sugar.
Obviously it is not suitable for people allergic to eggs, it is also unsuitable for people with nut and mustard seed allergies.
You can buy this in Sainsburys supermarkets in the refrigerated section, you can also order online at www.sainsburys.co.uk.
The usual price for the 400g tub is £1.80, so I got a great bargain.
I would definitely buy this again and will be looking out for the other varieties next time I go shopping,
I am back on the health kick so its jacket potatoes for me for dinner for the foreseeable future!! As nice as spuds are, I do get a bit bored with the usual fillings like beans or tuna so I decided to make my trusty sandwich filler a multi functional food and use it for my jacket!!
This product is exactly what it says on the pot: Chopped Free Range Hard Boiled Eggs in Free Range Mayonnaise, Seasoned with Salt and Pepper.
The flavour is divine, very thick, creamy, and perfectly seasoned (although some cress makes it even better!)..... I must admit it is quite moreish and I have been known to have a bit of a 'spoonful for sandwich, spoonful for mummy' approach to making lunch!!
Unfortunately it is not suitable for people who have allergies against the following: egg, mustard, nuts (due to the methods used in the manufacture of this product.) It is however suitable for vegetarians.
The product is only available at Sainsbury's (although I am sure there are very similar varieties on sale at other stores) and it costs £1.80 for a 250g tub. I think this price is very reasonable considering the fuss free factor of it and the taste!! Lets be honest peeling hard boiled eggs is no fun!
Nutritional information for ¼ of the pot:
114kcal, 1.4g Saturated fat, 0.47g Salt, trace Sugars,
I was amazed at how low in weight watcher points this product was! 1/4 of the pot would definitely be enough for a sandwich filling (you may need a bit more to fill a jacket potato) and its so delicious! You really feel like you're going off the diet rails as it tastes so creamy and flavoursome but you can relax and enjoy as it's only 2 weight watcher points per ¼ of the pot!!!!
It is suggested that once open you consume within 2 days- I am not suggesting that you eat out of date food, but I have had my opened tub in the fridge for about 4 days before and it has still been OK (at your own risk!)
Overall I would definitely recommend this product. It is especially good if you are on a health kick and are looking for not so sinful lunch ideas, or if you just want to add some variety to the picnic or pack lunch boxes! It is fuss free, convenient and good value for money but most important it's eggs-tremely delicious!
An added bonus if all that wasn't enough.... It's produced in the UK for those aware of their carbon footprint!
