​Yes, but it's only the fishes eye balls.

I use to love them when I was young, but have gone off them when I tried them again a year or so ago.

Must be quality stuff... oO

If we're going to take an animal's life for food we should use every last bit we can.
Some people like fish-sticks, some people don't like fish-sticks. Good price
One of my guilty pleasures. I hate to think what goes into these things but they seem to hit my tastebuds quite nicely.

Pulverised white fish and starch basically.

Ordering surimi at a restaurant that freshly prepares them is yummy. These "crab sticks" give surimi a bad rep though.

Reminds me of my second pregnancy, baguettes full of 'crab' sticks and mayo - yummy lol!
OMG I remember seeing these in the USA many years ago and thinking thank god we don't have that sort of rubbish masquerading as food here!
Kids love them. Low fat, source of protein. Mostly pollok fish meat. Great wee snack.
Have a read of this!

But when did it say any of Farmfoods products were actually produced on the FARM?

Don't worry most people have both bought and eaten rubbish food of one kind or another. NO ONE PERSON is truely human!

Whilst I agree with that sentiment, have you actually looked at what is done to make this 'meat'? If you did, then I doubt you'd go that far...
You certainly wouldn't feed it to your kids. I don't.

And what do you base that on? and the definition of 'fish meat' is quite broad these days, far broader than I'm happy with...
Look carefully at what you feed your kids.
Sticks made of miscellaneous sea creatures but still damn tasty. Have some heat.
99p for 64 gotta taste like crap!! Havent had decent crabsticks since i was 8??
We should start eating humans

Pay £2 if it makes you feel better. Just because something is expensive doesn't always directly relate to how cheap it's contents are

I used to love crabsticks, stopped eating them years ago.

My grandad would often bring them to me after his shop on a Saturday morning when I was a kid. Good times.

Why virtue signal in a cheap food deal on a money saving website when people are starving around the world?

These sticks will still be made with the scraps of perfectly edible food. If they're not good enough for your special snowflakes fine but you shouldn't look down on others that don't share your standards.

/rant :P
waste not want not.

but no thanks.
Kanye tell me more about these fish sticks?

​You can eat them out of anything.
i still eat these from time to time but they are nowhere near as tasty as they were 30 years ago or so. They used to be be so juicy and tasty, I would suck on them with the wrapper still on and get loads of juice. Now they are so dry......
Girlfriend used to eat these when we first met.

The horror of seeing an adult pull a pack out of a shopping bag into the same home I was in. Needless to say she was soon educated and wouldn't even think of buying filth these days. Actually, tell a lie, she was in Morrisons a few weeks back and for some odd reason she bought a two pack 'fish cake'. I didn't say a word. Two bites of one and she was all queasy. Should have seen the bizarre white goo in the thing.

Once you take the red pill on food it's really hard to go back.

My sentiments exactly! Absolutely no idea what goes into them really (and to be honest don't really care) but I know they taste great so I'm going to keep munching on them!!

You can try to patronise with phrases like 'special snowflakes' if you like, but the fact is no one in the world is starving because of a shortage of cheaply made highly processed fish goo sticks.
If I was that broke that I needed to spend so little on the cheapest form of 'protein' (don't call it meat) to feed my kids, then I'd a: learn to cook actual food and b: go vegetarian and get far more for my money.

I'm not against anyone making an informed choice to eat these things, but don't pretend they are anything they aren't. And what they are is bloody awful. If you genuinely believe the contents of these are 'perfectly edible food' then I suggest you really look into how such things are made, and what such processing does to the food itself, and subsequently, to you.
It's an eye opener.
