Cost:

I bought these when they were on offer as 3 for £4, working out as £1.33 for the pack of 30 (approx. 4p per ‘sausage’ roll). Bought as an individual pack, they cost £1.75. I think they are worth the full price as they are nice indeed. Having said that, I only buy them when on offer as I hate to spend more than I need to.

Appearance:

I have cooked them the ‘wrong way’ round compared to how they are featured on the packet, but they taste the same regardless 🙂

They look just like mini meat sausage rolls. Same size. Honestly a meat eater wouldn’t even notice it wasn’t a ‘typical’ mini sausage roll.

Taste:

Surprisingly similar to meat sausage rolls. It has been seasoned well and is not dull in taste at all. If someone hadn’t told me it was meat free I would have believed it contained meat. I did a (blind/covert) taste test on my partner (an avid meat eater) to see what he made of it. He was surprised when I told him it was made of soya protein and was therefore meat free. His response was ‘really?!’ Needless to say he now enjoys them with me when I make them and has a less negative view towards meat free products.

Texture:

It is just as I expect a sausage roll to be, if not better. The ‘meat free’ part has the right thick consistency. The outer pastry wrapped around the soya protein is just enough to compliment the soya. It melts in the mouth and has a soft crunch to it. I would say it is perfect as it is and does not need improving in terms of texture.

Conclusion:

I am very impressed with this product. It is very moreish and I shall certainly be buying it again. If you are considering trying out meat free products, this should be a great product to try. In time I believe it will be a meat free go-to for a delicious snack.


To Buy or Not to Buy?

Since this is a Tesco Own Brand you can only buy this in the Frozen Section at Tesco and Tesco Extra Stores. They are less likely to be found in smaller Tesco Local Shops.. but you can be my guest in having a look and prove me wrong.
