“DON’T BUY THIS!”

Written on: 06/04/2022 by Kai1956 (1 review written)

I was craving Heinz Oxtail Soup and bought myself a tin. The first thing I noticed was that it was bright orange almost the colour of Heinz tomato soup. Where was the dark brown beefy soup that I needed to eat? The next thing was the consistency it was very watery and resembled dishwater. It looked and tasted very unappetising. The taste was mainly tomato not surprising due to the colour and not at all beefy. There was large chunks of carrot in it which was not expected and a very unpleasant… Read Full Review

“Very disappointing taste”

Written on: 08/01/2022 by Marar340 (1 review written)

I haven’t bought any Oxtail Soup for years simply because I usually make my own, I just fancied some with bread and butter and a dash of cream stirred in. What a disappointment, It tasted just like tomato soup and I don’t like tomato soup. I had to add a good dash of salt and pepper to make it taste less sweet and insipid. At 95p for a can in Tesco I won’t buy another in a hurry. Campbell’s condensed used to do a lovely one but I’ve not spotted any lately… Read Full Review

“More like a tomato soup”

Written on: 22/05/2021 by 65Cantrell (1 review written)

I have just tasted this soup for the first time in a few years. It is nothing like the original oxtail soup. This is more like a tomato soup with a few bits of beef thrown in. I question how a soup can be labelled oxtail when it is made with a far larger percentage of tomatoes to beef. 18% tomatoes with only 4% beef and of that only 1% oxtails does not constitute oxtail soup in my opinion. I will not recommend this soup and probably won’t buy again until the recipe is changed back to the… Read Full Review

“Release original recipe range and watch sales go up!”

Written on: 17/02/2021 by 164Browne (1 review written)

The new Heinz Oxtail soup recipe is in no way shape or form comparible to original recipe. I am old enough to know. The current version tastes of fermented onions with black pepper. There is no depth, no oxtail meat no complex stock flavour. It was a vaccuous brown viscose liquid with nothing to say to your taste buds other than- fooled you! What a shame. There is integrity in creating stock/broth with actual oxtail. The flavour achieved from these bones & meat are unique. Hence the love of… Read Full Review

“Not like it was”

Written on: 04/06/2020 by tappet123 (1 review written)

I was looking forward to the oxtail soup which I had got in for the "lockdown" and set up my special brunch with toast and butter. How disappointing to find its nothing like the traditional type. Nowhere on the tin does it say beware, we have changed the recipe and you will find it it's nowhere near as nice as it was. What a swizz! I won't be buying this stuff again. I got some Mulligatawny too recently which I haven't opened yet. I wonder if this is similarly debased… Read Full Review

“Disgusting”

Written on: 02/12/2018 by Lunarclubman (1 review written)

For many years I have been faithful to Heinz but sadly not anymore. This soup used to be full of body with a delicious taste. Now it is like eating coloured water and is absolutely disgusting. There are more pieces of carrot in it than so called oxtail. They might as well call it Vegetable with an almost oxtail taste. Let me say that this is not the only flavour in their range that is extremely thin watery and disgusting,try chicken at your peril. I will never buy a tin of Heinz soup in any… Read Full Review

“I don't believeit!”

Written on: 13/02/2018 by Hayden137 (1 review written)

Many years ago I thought Baxter's Royal Game was the pinnacle of soups; so when I saw an offer of the soup at my local supermarket discounted from £1.11 to 75p I thought I'm going to have a couple of those. What a mistake! It is foul, tasteless and has as much 'body' as diluted water (if such a thing could exist. It would seem from these reviews that the 'new recipe' was introduced round about 2006. Isn't this coincidental, it was the time that one man left the company and a woman took over… Read Full Review

“Rubbish 'soup! but not as we know it'”

Written on: 30/09/2017

I don't like this at all it doesn't even taste meaty. You've totally spoiled what used to be one of my favourite flavours of soup. It tastes more like tomato soup with carrots added. I will not be buying it again nor recommending it to my friends or family… Read Full Review

“recipe its changed again Jan-2017”

Written on: 12/01/2017

My wife loves this Oxtail Soup and eats it frequently. I also like it but don't have it so often. I recently purchased 4 cans from Asda then 2 weeks later purchased 6 more. It appears they changed the recipe. Its quite different. More watery and less meaty. Like I cheaper bottom range brand. This corresponds to a price drop from 75p a tin to 50p a tin. I think its likely that Heinz is trying to peg back prices because they are scared stiff of competition. They think the only way to compete is… Read Full Review

Had Heinz oxtail soup recently and was very let down. I remember it years ago, it was dark, rich and unctious. Its not anymore, why is it been made differently now? Money saving? Changed to Baxters, more of an old fashioned Oxtail soup, much nicer… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2010 by DaveyB2 (3 reviews written)

I think this soup is great and see some negative comments above about it. I have this particularly in the winter time when its cold outside and the meat chunks in the soup with the vegetables coupled with the hot broth is just what I need. I think the ingredients taste great and for a canned soup it's great and of course lasts v long too. I love this soup and price is good too… Read Full Review
