Anyone who likes smooth potato cakes will absolutely love these potato farls. I love potato cakes, no Sunday morning fry up is the same with potato cakes, or potato farls. I'd seen them on the top shelf at Sainsbury's a few times but always decided on one of a couple of other brands as they aren't particularly cheap. One week the farls were on special offer at 1/3 off bringing them to less than £1.00 so I had to buy them. The packet is a weird combination, feeling somewhere between grease paper and plastic, it's very odd, it rips like paper anyway and feels very quality. There's a picture of Paul Rankin, the famous chef, on the front, he is the ... Read the complete review

The other day I spotted these in Asda reduced. Stocking up with bread at the time for the freezer I purchased these without taking a lot of notice of them and was surprised when I went to shove them in the freezer that they are not bread.... as such! Course I know who the chef Paul Rankin is. He may not be as popular now as he once was but I remember seeing him on cookery shows in the past and sometimes with his wife on a regular basis and not once have I seen a food product offered by him so I was rather interested to try these as an endorsement by a chef has to be a good thing lol! The Packaging: Oblong see through plastic wrapper with ... Read the complete review

I see I am not the only one who thinks that Paul Rankin has a winner on his hands with his potato farls. Our local Sainsbury's stock them at £1.08p for a pack of four farls. Maybe I had better take time out here and just run through what a potato farl is, in all honesty it wasn't until I had tried them that I realised what they were either. The potato farl is in fact a griddle bread that originated in Northern Ireland , they are also known as `slims` or `fadge` and are similar to a potato scone. The word Farl is taken from the old Gaelic word Fardel which means four parts, the large farl was cooked on the griddle and then divided into four equal ... Read the complete review

I absolutely adore these! They are from the Paul Rankin range and made by Irwins, who I believe are an Irish company. These are probably better known in the UK as potato cakes, potato scones or tattie scones - I will refer to them as scones for the review, because that is what I am used to calling them. These are flat scones and I believe they are made from potatoes and flour. They are so versatile and can be eaten as part of breakfast, lunch, evening meal, supper or just snack on its own. In my opinion they are at their most delicious when fried, but you can also eat them toasted. When in you are in a hurry just ... Read the complete review
