General Comments
With the name of Ainsley Harriott attached to this product I was expecting a gourmet experience. This was not the case. The colour is like a semi-translucent vegetable soup with some strange green lumps in it (quite possible lentils, but barely distinguishable as such). The taste was bland and boring. Imagine you've had a great curry, and left all the washing up in the sink overnight. The tap has been dripping away on the soiled pots and pans all night, and in the morning (having removed the lumps from the plug hole), the vaguely spicy water is left trickling away. Ainsley has cleverly managed to capture this water and freeze-dry it into a powdered soup he calls 'Spicy Lentil'. Dull, dull, dull and dreadful. Avoid it.

Nat, you DID have a gourmet experience in that 'um....ergot'; is an anagram of 'gourmet'.
<br/>
<br/>Sure sounds like the Ainsley Harriott Spicy Lentil soup tasted like that pernicious fungus anyway!
<br/>
<br/>Loved your sense of humour too.
<br>
<br>Of course, I can see now where the phrase "it tastes like Nat's" comes from...
<br/>
<br/>...OK, I'll get my coat!
