Iceland Vegetable Spring rolls -Yummy treat !!!
On a very upbeat mood to plan a family get together I did purchase this a month back from Iceland.
The packaging is really nice and tight. You can find 24 vegetables spring rolls written on the top of the pack. This pack comes for £2.00 but you can get three packets at £5.
I bought three of them and when I open them I could find that rolls are of good size. There are 12 of each variety -Oriental and Sweet Chilli. The rolls are of little ridge texture and not perfectly plane but they really look delicious. I thought of trying them out immediately and put them in microwave. The taste was really fabulous. I did prefer the Oriental one although my wife liked the other.
Oriental one was just too good with lots of finely cut vegetables inside.The carrot and shredded onion adds to the taste in these spring rolls. The sweet chilli one did not appeal to my taste. I feel the sauce used in sweet and chilli rolls are little bit on the sweeter side.
I would recommend to heat them mildly as they become little squelchy.
Ages ago my mum was given a £100.00 Iceland voucher so she kept hold of it for Xmas because we don't shop in Iceland. Now Xmas is coming she's doing the usual thing of trying out all the party food so that we will end up with all good stuff when the day comes around. She's kept £50.00 of the voucher for the main Xmas shopping and the rest of it is being spent on stuff for us to sample, it's been a good couple of weeks because we've eaten that much nice munchy stuff that I'll be full up by Xmas Eve I reckon! lol
She picked these Vegetable Spring Rolls up and I thought they'd be rank because a lot of this sort of food in Iceland is mega greasy. I was wrong though, these are sooooo yummy!
For £2.00 you get 24 spring rolls, 12 of them are Oriental flavour and the other 12 are Sweet Chilli. You cook them in the oven for about 10 mins and they smell lovely as they're cooking. When I took them out of the oven I saw they had leaked shedloads of fat onto the baking tray so I put them on kitchen roll before I put the spring rolls onto a plate.
My fave was the Oriental spring rolls but it's hard to say that because the Sweet Chilli ones were delish too. The pastry on both of the varieties is nice, it's a bit crispy but inside is lovely and soft. It doesn't taste as greasy as I thought it would but there is a bit of an oily flavour where the insides of the spring rolls have soaked the oil up a bit.
There's loads of filling in all the spring rolls and it's mainly beansprouts with chopped or shredded carrots, onions and other bits and pieces. The veg all tastes lovely and fresh and is crunchy too so that makes it seem even fresher. Sometimes frozen spring rolls go soggy but these ones crisp up lovely in the oven.
The Sweet Chilli ones haven't got much of a kick and I think they could have been a bit hotter, it's ok though because you can just serve them with a sweet chilli dip like we're going to at Xmas. The Oriental ones have got a bit of a chow mein flavour to me, the filling of them is a bit greasy but that texture goes lovely with the crunch of the vegetables so that's ok.
I reckon you could do much worse than buying these for over Xmas. They're not as nice as the spring rolls we usually buy off the deli in Tesco, but the fact that they're frozen makes them easier to store over Xmas and we haven't got to worry about eating them all up before the date goes over.
