“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Pates „
Wow! This stuff is amazing! Basically, it is what it says on the tub, a tasty pot of mackerel pate with a very strong flavour - for those of you who are not fans of fish - stay well away.
This product costs £1 (for 115g) and will serve about 3 lunch's so it is pretty good value! (each lunch is 3 cracker breads with a generous helping of the product). It is also the type of product that is nice to have in the fridge for a snack before you get home from work, but be warned - it is very morish. This product is very versatile! it is amazing on toast, ryvitas or oatcakes! The fat content is pretty high, however, it does all seem to be 'good' fats with a little bit of bad sneaking in from the cream cheese.
The taste like i said is very fishy, with a strong mackerel flavour but not overpowering as you can still taste the lemon, and cream cheese - it is also very peppery. The overall quality is amazing and it really does taste homemade, I recently stocked up on this and decanted it into ramekins for a starter when I was entertaining for friends, I sneakily passed this product off as homemade and no one could tell the difference!
Defintely a new weekly buy for me! This product is amazing
