NOOOOOOO they are so not cornish pasties.

Good price, but the pasty itself isn't so good. I like Morrison's Cornish Slices better, 4 for £1.80.

Asda and Waitrose are selling a pack of 4 for £2 at the moment

once you go to devon or cornwall you realise how s*** these are! I can't believe they make them in cornwall!

Were also yesterday in my local CoOp Foods on BOGOF at around £1.50 if you arent near a Tesco & can eat two (though cant see it listed on the CoOp website).

So they are, but these are large 227g and the 4 packs are smaller at 130g each

Agreed.

Ginsters pasties have decreased in size and quality and had a massive price hike which is why you can always find them on offer somewhere. To call them "Cornish Pasties" is a crime.

Just found Pengenna Pasties online for those wanting to try the real thing. Looks like a minimum order of 12 though.

An insult to the word pasty

They look so yummy, but £3.25 each and £10 for delivery? I'm glad I'm able to make my own.

yuk a rooney

I love em.

As a Cousin jack, this represents the biggest crock of s***e to come out of Cornwall. Avoid this nasty piece of food at all cost or anything made by Ginsters for a fact!

Cardboard pastry with a delicious filling of puke. Avoid at all costs.

These so called "Cornish Pasties" are "Horrible". Having ben born and brought up with the "Real Thing" I can say, without contradiction, these do not represent the "Real Thing". Once upon a time, when my Sister worked in the Callington Pasty production unit their Pasties were good,but when Ginsters went over to " Auto Production" things just got worse.

If you want a proper Pasty, it has to be a Philps in Hayle.

Agreed!

I remember liking these Ginsters ones back in the 80s, when I was an art student. I’ve had them recently, in recent years, and now they are only associated with the tedium of trying to get firmly wedged lumps of gristle out from between my teeth.

These are minging even with lots of red sauce on them good price but wouldnt buy.

these are vile.

ginsters make pasties for major supermarkets too, i bet they all come out the same machine

I'll admit to eating pot noodles but even I won't touch Ginsters.

There's just no comparison to my mother in laws pasties.;)

Well that's our Valentines gifts sorted...

Am I the only one who likes the chicken and mushroom ones ? yummy X)

Yep, nothing as romantic as a Cornish Pasty!

Seriously nasty. Wouldn't feed them to a dog.

I'd lower myself to a cheeky pot noodle, even a crispy findus pancake, but not this.

Should be giving them away! If this is a Cornish pasty, my cocks a kipper!

Avoid!

OK, so everyone hates them, but is there a better pasty at a reasonable price available nationally? I've tried some of the own brand supermarket ones and they're no better, IMHO. What about ones from Sayers, Greggs etc.? It's all very well whingeing about how bad Ginsters are, but give us poor pasty-loving souls a sensible alternative!

Thanks rkl - whilst I realise these aren't the greatest from a taste, nutrition and authenticity point of view, I fail to see how 64p for what is essentially a whole lunch/meal isn't a half decent deal for those that don't mind them.

Glad the deal went hot despite the Pasty Mafia's dissaproval!

Whole lunch/meal?

You must be on a diet or rather skinny. That would be a snack for most people.
