Found 6th Apr 2013
Bought one of these on Thursday, shelf price is £7.99 with £2 off the normal £9.99 price but it scanned at £6.99 at the checkout.

People have said they are really tasty on here before so thought I would share it and hope it is all stores.

Had this on New Years Day, never again, by far the worst 4 bird roast I've had. Each to their own though!

I second that not very nice at all would not recommend tastes very synthetic

I must admit we were very disappointed when I paid £9.99 for it. Especially when you put the orange glaze as its very over powering. Strange thing is, it was better as a cold sandwich slice/wedge than a hot meal.

i also had this was vile middle bird was unrecognisable like a grey rubber

hmm, guess it might be hit and miss as to how good each one is from this reviews on the older 3 bird one...:

I liked it. the Orange glaze is a bit over powering but its lovley cold, or with out the orange glaze on.

These roasts are disappointing, meat is tough, never eaten an inner tube but that's the texture I think if would be! Save your money

cooked this before with friends round, just as instructed, deglazed pan with wine and cream etc and it was delicious - succulent and very tasty. It was just enough for four people with good appetites. I'll happily buy again.

I've had one in the fridge for the past month.Looks like its heading for the bin

Jamie Oliver eat your heart out !! You know how to treat your friends at a dinner party.... a 4 bird roast from Aldi, what did you make them for pudding.....a strawberry cheesecake from Icelands?

As I remember, for dessert, we had a choice between a lovely chocolate and toffee gateaux from Patisserie Valerie and a homemade passion fruit and pomegranate pavlova with a citrus syllabub. Its such a time saver not to have to bone and stuff the birds myself in the roast that I like to do one home made dessert. Though I may try the iceland cheesecake some time on your recommendation :-)

Well, just had ours for dinner and we all thought it was pretty good. Bit harsh to vote cold just because you personally do not like the taste. It's still a 'deal' regardless.

You might not have liked it as you did not cook it properly for instance. We defrosted it although it says for best results cook from frozen but with past experience with other stuff we ignored that.

bit worried about this now one in freezer and just invited daughter and family to eat it on Sunday .will defrost thoroughly and it is August 2013 best before so hope will be ok ,as my sonin law loves his roast ! Ps .my friend served it to guests and it was good so fingers crossed .

A bird in a bird in a bird - all in a bird? Which monster thinks up these recipes?
I learnt my lesson trying the Aldi Phesant before and nearly broke a tooth on some lead shot I luckily managed to spit out.

I had this as a guest at a relatives xmas dinner. All I can say is I needed a lot of gravy with it to make it edible.
I just do not see much beating a ordinary honest roast chicken.

They've been making stuff like this for years, never heard of game pie before?

I give up with some people on here, you will be telling me you don't eat pork pies as they have jelly in them.

In his 1807 Almanach des Gourmands, gastronomist Grimod de La Reynière … In his 1807 Almanach des Gourmands, gastronomist Grimod de La Reynière presents his rôti sans pareil ("incomparable roast")—a bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an ortolan bunting and a garden warbler—although he states that, since similar roasts were produced by ancient Romans, the rôti sans pareil was not entirely novel
