“Not how I remember them - major recipe change?”

Written on: 04/07/2015

I used to love faggots as a child and thought I'd take a trip down memory lane and try a pack of Mr Brain's as we used to have. So confident of their deliciousness, I bought two packs. Wish I hadn't. The recipe has clearly changed radically, so rather than firm faggots, similar in consistency to meatballs, these were somewhat more spongy and mushy. Nothing desirable about them and now I have a pack taking up room in the freezer. Potentially suitable for people lacking both teeth and taste buds… Read Full Review

“Awful!”

Written on: 27/04/2015 by seapie (1 review written)

I bought these faggots because my husband picked them out in the supermarket; he said he used to enjoy them years ago (I certainly remember eating Brains faggots and they were definitely fairly tasty then as far as processed food goes). I'm afraid this latest product was, too say the least, very, very disappointing. After heating and retrieving from the oven, my thoughts were that the product looked nothing like it used to. The sauce looked more like a tomato sauce than a rich gravy. The… Read Full Review

“Went in the bin”

Written on: 07/01/2015 by Casona486 (1 review written)

Thoroughly disappointed - when cooked the faggots were pale in colour and a strange texture, almost like breadcrumbs. Even the gravy was pale and gloopy, far from the traditional rich meaty sauce we expected. We didn't risk eating them, the whole meal went in the bin. We've been buying these for years but I won't bother again… Read Full Review

“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. I… Read Full Review

“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

Have just gotten back into Mr Brains Faggots after some years out. What I noticed the must was just how you have remained faithful to the past. Your Faggots are like a visit down memory lane. Its like the whole family was there again eating their dinner on a cold and wet Thursday evening. Wonderful......................... … Read Full Review
