these were £1 in ASDA not so long ago and i bought a load, definatly recommended, especially at this price!
#2
Good price, good sauce, but dammit I hate Grossman!!!!!! :o
#3
Hate the pasta sauces,a good deal for those who like them - the curry ones are yummy though :)
#4
These are yummy, great value at half-price!
#5
nasty source.

price aint bad.
#6
The tomato and basil one is lovely.
#7
Are the curry sauces the same price or just the pasta ones?
#8
love the pasta
#9
Try the tomato & chilli! It's fab. I bought about 30 of these the other week in Tesco when I saw them at this price!
#10
You would be better ******** in a bowl of pasta and eating it, a much tastier option.

Voted hot due to the price, if I was rating the product on the other hand......
#11
Tomato and chilli is the biz. Lovely mixed with mince as a bolognaise sauce. Also very nice to use in Lasagne, gives it a bit of a kick. Excellent price, good spot.
#12
I am going to buy a shed load on Sat.
#13
Won't vote hot or cold but read the label on these, ALOT of fat per jar.
#14
Nice sauces but for the ultimate in bargains..... make your own!
#15
I don't know about the Pasta Sauces themselves but the Curry Sauces from Loyd Grossman are the BEST currently for sale in any supermarket (bar may be some of the Seeds of Change ones). I am an avid curry eater and got to say that the sheer quality of this sauces compared to Tescos, Organic Tescos, Patak's, Waitrose's Own brand, M&S own brand ... you name it. If this is the same for the pasta ones this is a huge deal!

Clearly you haven't tried them.
As much as I dislike Grossman, and as much as I am a fan of freshly cooked food, these are NOT full of junk, and for me, especially the Italian style sauces (much more so than the curry ones, which are not quite in the same category) are as good or better than to be made at home, even though home equivalents can often be made as quickly as opening the jar! They have just managed to get them spot-on, and it makes me wonder why some other prepared foods are so bad! At a full price of up to £2.05 (Somerfield!) this is sheer robbery, for what is about 85% canned tomatoes, but at the price in this post, it is as cheap as doing it yourself!

I can think of no other pre-prepared food products, (especially sauces) that I have EVER used that I would put in this category.

Eg. Tomato & Chilli, in font of me here - 5.7% and 5% of it it is mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fat.
The fat content in the finished meal, when added to pasta, the meal is going to be about 1 or 2% at most!

I wouldn't call that a LOT of fat - Any parmesan cheese you put on it is going to be FAR more!

Thai curry (the new green thai is the POOREST of all the curry ones now it has changed) may well be more, (I don't have one to compare) - probably because Thai Green Curry is packed with coconut milk! If you make it at home, it will be packed with... coconut milk!

Hard Cheese can be anywhere up to about 65% fat, but it doesn't necessarly mean a product containing cheese is going to be that high - fat content of part of a meal is hardly relevant when it is the total fat content, and the daily fat intake that is more relevant, especuially bearing in mind some fats eg olive oil & omega 3 is beneficial.

Hey nincaj, what don't you like about the curry sauces? I find them much thicker, creamy and flavoursome than the others.

They are very high in fat, but oh so yummy. LIke most scrummy things it's not so good for you. The smokey bacon one is my favourite.

It was just the pasta ones when i went in a few days ago. The curry ones were £1.60 each, £3 for 2 or something like that.
#21
Tikka Masala and Korma ones are lovely. Great price aswell after Asda had them at a quid.

They just are a bit like all "tries" at curry - a bit synthetic. better than many, but I think living within reasonable access of the Birmingham, Balti Triangle has tempered my level of acceptance ;-)

The Thai green curry has recently changed, and it is simply not very good at all now :-(
#23
These are still good value but they have reduced the size to 350g, think they used to be about 420g. Noticed that when Asda were selling them for £1.

I bought the tomatoe and wild mushroom one....loved it. My 6 year old son loves his pasta and he licked the plate clean. HOT.

yeah I like the korma one as well...have a heck of a job getting it out of the jar though - it's just so thick and creamy.
#26
Another vote for the Tomatoe and chilli sauce. It's brilliant. Much better than any other bottled sauce I've tried.

Voted hot!

Strange. I find the Tikka Massala and Korma excellent. Balti is very good too.

Any recommendations of other brands for about the same price that you consider are much better? I am always open to try new curry sauces :thumbsup:

Yup, my favourite too.....just the right balance of Chilli in it. Taste like a homemade rather than a processed sauce.

I wish I did! Commercial curries are not wonderful generally.

I use Pataks pastes (NOT the sauces either canned or jars) with some reasonably easy effective results, but unfortunately they are all a bit "same-y." I have a few from scratch curry favourite standbys, but don't spend so much time in front of a cooker as I used to - When I was in better physical condition, (disabled!) I used to spend many hours cooking Indian food, among other styles but I always have had a liking for the style from restaurants, NOT the domestic home cooking style which is not what I crave! I hadn't realised I wasn't alone, and it gets referred to as "BIR" ie. British Indian Restaurant food - and there are web sites out there with fanatics - but there are few real shortcuts! :-(

http://www.cr0.co.uk/curry/ is a good starting point!

For quick Thai curry, I find the best easily availability curry paste is from Sainsburys - their own brand. It is easier to handle than most others, and is less hot, so easy to get a flavour to suit whoever is eating it! Half a jar of paste, a can of coconut milk, onions, some veg, some meat or prawns and a very quick meal is on the table in no time, without having to have lemon grass and galangal at hand, OK you can produce better from scratch, but it s not always convenient!
#31
Thanks for the post (rep added). Some good information there. I should try the Sainsbury's one and the Pataks pastes, they are probably the only one I haven't tried (one of them due to me hating the orange theme of Sainsburys - I know stupid but I really can't stand it).

Why do you say Tesco is nasty?

I agree with other posters that the Grossman sauces are good. As I remember, the Consumers' Association (Which?) reviewed these a while back and they were head and shoulders above the competiton for quality and taste. The price seems good too. :-D
#33
Love these sauces except for primevera sauce (however it's spelt).... it is utter ***** :whistling:
suspended#34
just stocked up on them so should last at uni till christmas!wish the curry one was on offer theyre amazing love the madras!
#35
for Thai curry sauces I'd recommend the Mae Ploy pastes (made by the wonderfully named Ppadungporn Coconut Co LTD. ;> ).

http://www.theasiancookshop.co.uk/mae-ploy-thai-green-curry-paste-697-p.asp

Those prices are way inflated though, I pay £1.20 from a local world food shop for 400g.

See HERE or HEREfor some of the other varieties.

Tescopoly. All supermarkets are scum, tesco are one of the worst.

Cheaper to make your own sauces and no carp in them

My two favorite sauces are the tomato and chili, that can't be beaten, and I tried for the 1st time the Tikka Masala sauce which was great tasting. Just like or even better than some restaurant meals.
:thumbsup:I will stock up too.
