I've had a few of these, one isn't enough for a meal, 2 is ok.
Lasagne and cottage pie very very good.

I read about that, Tesco have put there value range into new packaging and have made up company names to hide the fact it's their value range.

It`s all about making the customer believe they are buying a good product(farm this and hearty that) rather than the bog standard Value brand(which was perfectly okay).
Not sure about liver...
But anyone else tried the others??

That explains the shortage of horses.....
The curry is surprisingly good. Sweet and sour chicken is ok also.
Now it all makes sense. We don’t have a local Tesco apart from the little ones so don’t use them much. We were away at the weekend and used one for our essentials shop. I’m no snob but would usually go for mid range stuff. However I bought the Eastfields ham, Creamfields cheese and yogurts etc and can’t say there was anything wrong with them!
I love the cheese & pasta bake

I tried the cottage pie and bangers and mash and not a fan I am afraid.

Yes, the toad in the hole is very good and the lasagne is nice. Heat given, they were 79p not long ago so it's fantastic value.

To copy Aldi and Lidls this does looks better, l would expect more people to buy and try these, a lot of shoppers wont have a clue these are value rebranded, a very clever mind trick by tesco. Tesco Adverts in the press seem to be copying Lidl, as long as no more annoying TV ads with that annoying families mundane tittle tattle at the till..!! Give me strength..
Yuck, cheap processed food, so people not care what they put into their bodies.
Avoid the sausage and mash, it’s very bland save for the occasional off tasting pepper. Most of the others are pretty innocuous but that one in particular isn’t worth trying. It’s the saddest sausage and mash I’ve ever eaten.
The Chilli Con Carne one is excellent... time to go fill up a draw of my freezer me thinks (they make for excellent midnight snacks).

Had a pepperoni one last week and for the price not bad
65p frozen ready meals "very very good"

Hmmm ok.

Try Donald Russell for very very good.

All supermarket frozen ready meals are extremely poor compared.
Only tried the lasagne after previous recommendations

Some people must have very poor taste buds as it was just watery bland pasta with very little cheese or meat. OK for a lunchtime snack if you're desperate.

It’s not always a choice, people can make, sadly a lot of people are on a tight budget these days, don’t have or unable to cook from scratch so it’s a quick and cheap hot meal

The surprising bit is when you find it
Taste ok but not my favorite
More salt in them than the sea.

Chilli con carne is nice, as is the Liver Bacon & Mash. At this price (a chocolate bar will cost yer 60p+) yer may as well try em out.

LOVED the everyday value (tinned) Chilli con carne, and would prefer it (as no rice) to this, but that's not an option, so this is the next best thing
It looks like this frozen ready-meal price reduction has been funded by increasing the price of the non-frozen equivalents . The price of the Hearty Food meals in the fridges has increased from 99p to £1.20

Absolutely but it'll cost you a lot more than 65p a cover, unless you was cooking for a lot. The more you cook for the cheaper it is.
Were, not was.

Chilli con carne cooked from scratch? ABsolutely, and I feel the same way about spaghetti bolognese (my favourite) and TBH I wouldn't try the "Hearty" Spaghetti...unless I had no other option.

My elderly neighbour is expecting a (free) delivery from Tesco today (free trial courtesy of HUKD ) and she is testing these Hearty food company meals in place of her Oakhouse ready meals, delivered weekly....at 4 times the price YES yes yes, the quality will be different, but 4 times worth different? I think not.


EXAMPLE...Oakhouse ready meals
Mini Spaghetti Bolognese A rich Bolognese made with minced beef, tomatoes, onions and mushrooms in a tomato and red wine sauce, seasoned with basil, garlic and oregano. Served with spaghetti. code: 466Weight: 240g @ £2.65

OR

TESCO

Hearty Food Co. Spaghetti Bolognese 400G @ £ 0.65

SO
240g @ £2.65 v 400G @ £ 0.65
Some will knock this "Brand" (even if just because it's Tesco) but to many? it's this or nothing.
