For the record, these are 'Fish Eggs' from Capelin (Lumpfish) and not true Caviar which comes from Sturgeon - hence the 'bargain' price.

most caviar out there is "made" from different fish considering that sturgeon has bene lustre as an endangered species...
For sturgeon Caviar you need to pay £50+ for the same amount..

Sure, point taken. Just didn't want people rushing out to buy a pot of £1.49 Caviar thinking it was an uber-bargain and the same as the £80+ ones - although it probably tastes the same

ie, tastes like **** lol.

It may well be Lumpfish roe, but that's still a great price.

They were talking about this on Sky News last night (paper review) and someone who had tried it said it smelled like fish that had been left out in the sun for a week! Really fishy smelling.

Now, I know that sounds daft, but, any good cook/chef will tell you when buying fish, it should not smell fishy.

Haven't got a clue what the hell it should smell of then.

lol, good 1. chavs tryin too buy food whats meant for posh nobs

Comparing this to actual caviar is like comparing a bottle of the fizzy **** you get free when it's your birthday in a nightclub and a bottle of vintage champagne.....both are eggs that come from fish, but that's where the similarity ends. (And yes I know that the sickly sweet stuff they get you to pour down your necks is indeed perry, before a pedant decides to interject (_;))

Review says disgusting is an understatement very salty with a soapy aftertaste,sounds like a must if you like self flagellation!

Do you mind posting a link to the review

caviar is overrated and gross..i just dont see the fuss..had it lots of time even decent stuff...its one of those overpriced things that people like to associate with because its expensive not because its any good

I like this stuff, cheap at the price HOT, but certainly not caviar as the rest have said

Think this is the review, must be true it's from the Daily Mail site

after susanalbumparty?

Lidl red caviar at least resembles the taste of red caviar. Lidll black caviar doesnt even taste remotely like the real one.

QFT.

The 'upper classes' are known to eat all sorts of rank ****. They can shove this stuff up their ****, i'm sticking with my olives.

Cold from me - this Lidl stuff tastes disgusting (much too salty).

It does look rank to be honest, rather spend my £1.50 on some nice pink lady apples there only about this price at Aldi's and haven't been **** out by the abomination pictured by 666fu

If I want to vomit I'll just stick my fingers down my throat and save the £1.49

Maybe the world is going to end in a few weeks then...
