“ Brand: Iceland / Type: Snacks „
We brought these Mini Tartlets from Iceland and ate them on Bonfire Night. They looked yummy on the box but when they were cooked they were rank so when I said we ate them I mean to say we tried them and then chucked them to my uncle's dog!
They cook in about 15 mins but even when they were still frozen they looked crap. When they're cooked they look mega cheap, the pastry has browned quite nice but the fillings look sloppy and horrible.
You get 6 tuna mayo tartlets and 6 garlic mushroom ones. The mushroom ones were the best out of the 2 but they were still not that nice. The mushroom filling looks solid from the top but it's dead sloppy when you bite into it, I couldn't taste the mushrooms much and I'm not sure why because the garlic flavour was only faint.
The tuna ones are nasty. I didn't think tuna mayo would be much good hot anyway but they are even worse than I thought! They are proper sloppy and the filling is ridiculous because it's so wet, when I came to give them to the dog they'd gone cold and had been sat for about half hour and the tuna mayo stuff had soaked through the bottom of the pastry. Bleugh!!!
Another thing is even the size of them is a rip off, even if they tasted nice I wouldn't think they was worth £2.00. They look and taste so cheap that I reckon Iceland are getting a bit cheeky with their prices. We was thinking of buying these for Xmas day before we tried them because they do look so yummy on the box, but if you're buying this sort of party food for Xmas then stay away from these because they'll spoil all your hard work.
Avoid them like the plague that the hot tuna probably contains!!!
12 Mini Tartlets from Iceland
Are you stuck for ideas for party food or just fancy something to snack on within your own home. The Iceland party food range is excellent and great value for money too. I bought this item along side many others when I was catering for a party. The pack itself costs around 2 pounds of you can get 3 packs for £5!! . There is more than just this product within the range so you won't need to buy 3 of the same thing.
The pack includes 6 individual pasty cases which include tuna and mayonnaise and 6 pastry cases which include a garlic mushroom filling. These are round in shape and have the filling in the centre.
These do need to be cooked and do not come prepared unlike some of the Party Range from this store. They cook for around 15 minutes on gas mark 6.
Once cooked the pasty goes firm and also the filling does. They are very tasty and pretty in appearance.
The items come within a box and are sealed in a plastic bag. There is a label on the bag to inform you of which tartlets are which.
~ A great idea for parties, children or something for the family to snack on ~
