“What have they done to the recipe?”

Written on: 18/03/2017

I used to have Brains faggots when i was younger so when I saw them recently I decided to buy them. Followed the instructions and served with mash and peas. I was disappointed as the Mash and the peas had more flavour and taste than the Faggots did. Very,very Disappointing… Read Full Review

“Brains faggots have changed - not for the better,”

Written on: 30/03/2016 by Mahoneypy95 (1 review written)

For as long as I can remember Brains faggots were a consistent taste and texture - they were a comfort food when you were a bit strapped for cash, but nevertheless enjoyable. Recently it appears that changes have been made to the recipe, the faggots themselves are now a colourless mush and the gravy utterly flavourless. My girlfriend and I started eating them and we just looked at each other after the first mouthful - what on earth have they done!!!… Read Full Review

“No depth of taste”

Written on: 16/03/2016

Brains faggots have lost that depth of taste that made us want to buy them. For years we loved the meaty taste that left a satisfying aftertaste.. Now we would have to think twice about buying them again… Read Full Review

“Not Like They Used To Be”

Written on: 12/03/2016 by Peacockvp27 (1 review written)

Used to have these Mr Brain's faggots as a child and also through adulthood, hadn't had them for quite some time so decided to have them for a mid-week meal. Well, what can I say apart from ...what have they done to the recipe?! I remember them being meaty, good texture, very tasty gravy. But now they're really mushy and like baby food, they were so soft that they fell apart getting them out of the dish. And the sauce? what's happened to the really rich savoury taste? All in all, these… Read Full Review

“What happened to my old favourite??”

Written on: 07/02/2016 by Dempsey458 (1 review written)

Bought some faggots for a family treat, good old fashioned comfort food. Wrong! The recipe is unrecognisable from the tasty comfort food of my childhood, I NEVER throw away food but these faggots were disgusting and were left on the plate by us all. The taste was bland despite a large amount of pepper and the smooth, over blended texture was yuk! I will never buy again… Read Full Review

“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

“where is the meat”

Written on: 19/04/2015 by MacKenzie25 (1 review written)

What a shame Mr brains faggots used to be meaty full of flavour,and in a rich meaty gravy . They now taste like cereal and although thick the gravy tastes powdery,and gritty . The recipe has been changed so much and not for the better, Sorry but I will not be buying any more sadley… 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

Quite agree. Something's changed as they are nothing like the last time we had them and we too have been buying them for years!

“Family favourites”

Written on: 03/08/2014

We love these, they are a family favourite. The sauce has improved and there is much more than before. We always have them with buttery mash and mushy peas. Yummmmmm Try them before you say you don't like faggots, I'm sure you, like us, will be hooked… 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
