Heinz HP Sauce

“Gross, glutinous mess”

Written on: 13/02/2014

This sweet, syrupy and disgusting condiment is an insult to the memory of my favourite sauce. I am astonished Heinz is allowed to describe at as 'The orginal HP Sauce'. I want my money back… Read Full Review

“Too thin”

Written on: 02/09/2013

Just finished a favourite breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast with a slice of ham. Always spiced it with a dollop of HP sauce. Now, the dollop is a puddle with less taste. Will be looking for an alternative. Heinz, you have messed up… Read Full Review

“Now A Dreadful Product”

Written on: 24/10/2011

Since the change to a "lower Salt" receipe I think the sauce is absolutely revolting - sickly. bland and just not "HP". I wonder whether "Lower Salt" was just a ruse by an American Multinational to foist an inferior, cheaper quality product on us and hope we didn't notice. Won't be buying it in future and will also avoid other Heinz products in future… Read Full Review

“Ruined”

Written on: 09/10/2011 by jetdae (1 review written)

I am aged 65 and have been eating HP sauce all my life. Now they've ruined it. It tastes bland and fruity. You might as well but any of the cheap imitations, the original special taste that made HP sauce stand out has gone completely. As it's generally eaten with breakfast, ie well salted fried eggs and bacon, the miniscule amount of salt in the sauce would make hardly any difference. Until they bring back the original recipe I can't see the point in paying a premium for a name. I won't… Read Full Review

“What have you done with the flavour?”

Written on: 11/09/2011

The flavour has changed recently and not for the better. At first I thought it was me, but friends and family say the same. Please bring back the original flavour… Read Full Review

Nothing like the original. The first ingredient in real HP sauce is Malt Vinegar. The first ingredient in Heinz HP is water. Nothing more to be said… Read Full Review

“It had to happen - The HP Sauce we all were brought up...”

Written on: 05/02/2007 by GarryF (34 reviews written)

It had to happen - The HP Sauce we all were brought up on is no more. Production has shifted to the Netherlands, and proudly claims on the bottle "Packed by H.J Heinz".

It's now in a squeezy bottle, and it has the viscosity to match - just like Heinz squeezy salad cream.

You would wait with anticipation as "HP" the worlds best sauce crept down the inside of the Glass Bottle and finally produced a Big Dollop on your plate. Way too much for a bacon sandwich, but you dipped until it was all… Read Full Review

Guest's Response to GarryF's Review

Written on: 14/12/2011

Totally agree that HP sauce has been ruined. The reduced salt issue is not the reason in my view, they have changed (cheapened) the recipe in the move to Belgian production. The texture is wrong, the smell is wrong and it tastes sweet. Where is the old pepper and spice? There are now more HP alternatives in the shops - a jolly good thing. Bye bye HP sauce, the 'Original' was killed of many years ago.

Garryf's Response to GarryF's Review

As my last Bottle of Brummy HP Sauce comes to and end- yes I know its best before SEP 08- then my search for a British Made replacement has struck upon an equal. BRANSTON Brown Sauce with Branston Bite. OK - nothing will replace the Brummy HP- but Branston has that something that turns a bacon toastie into a feast. Give it a try. £1 in Asda.

I agree! HP Sauce is best served from a glass bottle. That congealed gunk that formed around the bottle top (ahh - the memories); it takes me back!
