I'm always wary when it just says fish rather than Cod or Haddock . Check …I'm always wary when it just says fish rather than Cod or Haddock . Check the ingredients and you will often find it is Pollock or worse still that vile Vietnamese farmed catfish called Basa


It is Alaskan Pollock, and nothing wrong with it. I mean it is part of the cod family for a kick off.

You can thank me for this. I went to every store and left them out on the side so they'd have to throw them away.

If you want any I've got 560 bags in my freezer.

If they let you swap out the flipper dippers for a microwave or an oven, then it's a hot deal...
Although I would be happy with any alternative to the flipper dippers.. fish fingers maybe?

Yikes what? That's pretty standard.

And Alaskan Pollock is fine.

You'd be surprised how little fish percentage wise there's in anything crumbed or battered. The coating takes up a lot.

A bit over 50% is standard.

Young's Gastro range seem to have the most - as the batter or crumb is very thin.
So they have around 75% fish even.
Cadbury cream egg ice cream seems horrific though. Hopefully can have some semi decent ice cream instead.

They often don't state the variety because they are using sustainable sources which means sourcing the most sustainable variety at a given point. If they stipulated 'cod' or 'haddock' or even 'pollock' on the front it would tie their hands.

Most people can't even tell the difference so why farm cod and haddock to extinction just because people like to stick to what they know? You'd be surprised how many people assume that things like filet o fish from McDonald's is cod - it's often basa/river cobbler - and there's nothing at all wrong with eating these other varieties of 'whitefish'. It's just blinkered behaviour that puts people off for the most part if you ask me.

No nothing wrong with it but pretty tasteless. Even the vast majority of kids could tell the difference in fish fingers during one study I saw on TV and they much preferred the cod. Yes environmentally it's good and it is right for people to be told this but don't embellish the truth by telling them it's the same as cod; very few are fooled.

Wow, your tastebuds must be quite poor if you can't tell the difference between pollock and cod or haddock. I certainly can and most of my friends and family have always commented on the fact they can, since the eat pollock campaign started. But because we don't agree with you then we must be "blinkered" though. Conceited.

I can tell the difference between cod and haddock but most whitefish like basa and Pollock tastes very similar to cod. I actually like seafood generally and don't think any fish tastes better than another fish - it all tastes nice to me.
haddock or riot !! is not a great one this time. they seem to do the same deals on a loop. last deal was really good tho.
So people are fighting over different varieties of fish on this post. 🙄

I’d say people are simply disagreeing on what they like or dislike rather than fighting. No bloodshed.
White in general is bland and tasteless. The flavour of frozen prepared products is mostly coming from what it is coated in.

Feeding at least 4 people, so just over 800 cals each. Totally workable within the recommended daily intake if you eat 3 meals a day. Not checked salt, etc. as I couldn't care less what other people are eating

North Sea cod classed as sustainable since last year - keep the Eurotrash out and the other species will follow suit
I always bought plain frozen pollock but got some plain frozen haddock recently and it does taste much better to me. Always preferred haddock over cod because it's got more flavour. I don't get the cod obsession - standard British anti fish taste I guess - the least fishy fish.

Cue anecdote about fish fingers actually not being an intentional new product - but the bland base off which to assess responses to a new product or something along those lines.

Cod does have a better texture than pollock though. I really noticed that with haddock. Having said that the fillets were thicker, which helps when microwaving.

There is something wrong with eating Basa and intensely dirtily farmed river fish vs sea fish though.

So pollock over basa for sure.
I went to get mine today but they had ran out of peas
