“Brains Faggots in Rich sauce”

Written on: 20/04/2014

I brought these faggots from Iceland as they were on special offer.I used to enjoy them a few years back as a cheap meaty tasty meal option. I cooked them as per instructions on the box and sat down to enjoy them. However there was nothing enjoyable about them.They were a soft soggy tasteless mess with the consistency of soft stuffing balls.There was no hint of any meaty texture about them.They are nothing like they used to be,they have been totally ruined probably as a cost cutting exercise.

“Wheres the meat?”

Written on: 29/08/2013

Bought 2 four packs from Tesco at half price. One pound a box, thought i had a bargain! Oh no. Smelt nice cooking in the oven, then found out they were just a floury mush. No way would i pay two pounds a box. BUT, i would if it were near the old meatier recipe. The sauce seems similar or the same as 30 years ago, so Kerry foods are halfway to a good product. The price in the 80's was over a pound, so the have kept the price low, but removed most of the meat. KERRY FOODS...ITS A BIG MISTAKE!… Read Full Review

“Mr Brains Frozen Faggots”

Written on: 24/03/2013 by Superswift (1 review written)

What a shame, I have fond memories of Brains Frozen Faggots. They used to have a taste all of their own, and they where amazing.I purchased a pack a few days ago and Well..They where nothing like, so tasteless I had to check the lid to make sure I hadn't picked up a cheap brand by mistake, But no they where the original Brains. Take note Kerry Foods, Once people stop buying your products its hard to get the custom back. Why do they do this? How can a company take something so wonderful and… Read Full Review

Bertie's Response to kalamundakid's Review

Written on: 09/09/2012

Can't remember when I last tasted a Brains faggot but I can remember I was less than enchanted with the taste and consistency of the product.

If you want the real McCoy, the DEFINATIVE FAGGOT, you can read my review of Whitworths Dried Marrowfat Peas to discover where to get 'em and if by the most minuscule of slim chances you won't like 'em, I'll give you the money back! How's that!!

“Disgusting”

Written on: 14/05/2012 by MarinaT (1 review written)

Was really looking forward to having Brains Faggots for my dinner this evening, whilst cooking they smelt lovely with the same burning lid smell I know to ignore. But when I removed the lid, wow what a shock the sause had changed colour although the faggots themselves looked the same. Undetered I mixed them into my mash my preferred eating option. Then with the first mouthful I was horrified they tasted disgusting like tin meat balls. I could not carry on eating, unlike an earlier reviewer I… Read Full Review

“Brains Faggots - awful”

Written on: 31/01/2012

Just had Brains faggots for tea - haven't had them for quite a while. They are different. First mouthful, the overall taste I got was SALT, then it seemed the main taste was PEPPER. Couldn't eat much of them - I bought two 6-packs last week - one of them, still in freezer, is going right into the bin! I've eaten these faggots from time to time for more than 30 years - what's gone wrong?… Read Full Review

“sad, soggy and embarrassed”

Written on: 19/01/2012 by wendybash (1 review written)

Really really embarrassed and disappointed at tonight's supper. We have been living abroad and were really looking forward to our special treat of Mr Brains faggots, especially having sang their praises to all our friends who had not tried them before! They were dreadful, no meat at all, just cereal and even the gravy was not as before. Why or why, I am sure they must be selling less which is why we were buying, buy one get one free at the supermarket. Won't bother again, will buying the solid… Read Full Review

Brains faggots were a family favourite and we made a point of having them every 2 weeks. Just noticed a change in the flavour and texture. Not good. Why do companies mess about with a proven product. Sorry won´t buy them again… Read Full Review

“Mr. Brains aint wot they used to be!”

Written on: 08/09/2011 by Esmeralda (15 reviews written)

I think changes have been made to the faggots which have not improved the quality or taste one iota. The faggots are smaller! The sauce as advertised 'gives you more' but to the detriment of the faggot. These used to be 'coarser' and have more substance and taste; you could taste spice and meat - now its more of a cereal taste. I dont dislike the taste entirely but wouldn't buy as often as I used (hubby used to really liked them). I do wish instructions for cooking and storage wasn't put at… Read Full Review

“Used to be amazing - now disgusting”

Written on: 06/06/2011 by DJ_Jaybee (1 review written)

Like others have mentioned here - Brains faggots used to be absolutely tasty and meaty... now they are taste bad and you don't need to chew because they are made of "fluff?" - must be mainly air not much real meat anymore. I got some when I spotted them at the supermarket and told my young lad "These are great - I used to have these when I was a lad". We were obviously shocked when we tried them and they were so bad. I had to apologise and say it was ok to leave them and with disappointed… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/10/2010

I used to love brains faggots with mash and peas. The recipe has changed and they now taste disgusting (couldn't eat them). They have far too much of an almost fluorescent orange gelatinous sauce, crumbe when cooked and have an unpleasent smell and chemical taste.
What was wrong with the old recipe, it had the right amount of sauce, the faggots were firm actually tasted and smelled of meat. Who are these peoiple of which the website speaks that wanted a new recipe, i am certainly not one.
