This is a review I have almost been dreading, because these Quorn fishless fingers were honestly one of the worst things I have ever eaten. I don’t know who came up with these, but they are completely grim on all levels.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so, as several fellow vegetarians have commented the same to me. The thing is, most people who turn vegetarian really aren’t interested in fish. It seems that those who are remain pescatarian, for the most part at least. Fish is that thing you hold your breath while you walk past in the supermarket. It’s something other people eat. It’s gross and stinky.
These fish fingers have managed to do a fantastic job of also being gross and stinky. Even from the first moment I smelt them cooking I had a very uneasy feeling about them. They just smell awful, and that wasn’t much of a good reason to put them on my plate.
A couple of bites in, and I already knew I never wanted to eat these ever again. Basically, they are just way too fishy for me. Which is a compliment in a weird way, if you think about it. They have a very strong taste which overwhelms anything else, and a firm texture. There is also a strong breaded layer on the exterior.
It just took a few mouthfuls for me to feel sick about eating these. Safe to say I won’t be buying these again – or any fake fish product, for that matter. J says they do taste like real fish, which is even more of a reason to ignore them for the rest of my life as far as I’m concerned.
I’m unable to recommend this product at all – totally disgusting and I may actually be scarred for life now.
