Today we have an item from The Co-Op, a “Cheesy Bean Slice” which they describe it as “Baked beaks and Cheddar cheese in puff pastry”.
Well for your enjoyment, I have tried this both hot and cold but before I actually get to the review I am going to tell you how healthy this is. Naturally just like other cheap food (this was left than a pound), it is very high in fat – this one being 36% of your guideline daily amount, then 55% of fat that saturates which again is bad. It is also 22% of your daily salt limit.
Now onto the bit we care about – what it actually taste like. Well the first one we are going to do is cold. I think the best way to explain what it taste like is to just say this – it basically tasted like a few penny can of baked beans with no hint of cheese at all. The pasty itself broke apart very easily and overall not really worth the price it was.
Now let’s do heated. First of all I was able to taste the cheese and the beans actually was some what bearable in terms of taste. Interestingly enough though the pasty wasn’t falling to bits so it may have been the first one was just well, a bad one.
Overall I preferred the heated one and I would rate it 5/10. Wasn’t good, isn’t something I would go out of my way to eat but overall it had some taste but the cold one I would rate 2/10 as well, it taste like plain baked beans and nothing more.
One day I will actually get a HD camera but the video camera I have that supports HD doesn’t let me take just pictures.
