I got my last pack of these Linda McCartney sausage rolls out of the freezer last week, cooked three of them for my lunch and was really disappointed in how they turned out. I blamed myself for perhaps not noting the time I had put them in properly or some such error. So I ate two of them and not being able to face the third shared it between the dogs, and then thought nothing more of it.
Then yesterday I got the remaining three sausage rolls out and cooked them in the way I have always cooked them ... for the same time, at the same temperature, not brushing with milk etc ... absolutely noted the time and set the timer, and still they came out looking like this and tasting like pastry flavoured cardboard.
I'm mostly disappointed because I had decided that they wouldn't be replaced due to the budget constraints, and the fact that I have some veggie sausages and some frozen pastry that I can make my own out of, and this was to be my last splurge of bought ready made snack food for the foreseeable future.
I have written to the customer care people to try and find out if there have been more complaints about this batch or if I am the only unlucky one. I'll let you know what they say.
