simply dreadful

If you tasted this blindfolded you would never guess it was supposed to be cheese sauce. If you were to smell it first you would never put it in your mouth in the first place. Stay well clear. Make your own instead.

Strongly disagree with the other reviews...

Tastes very long life. The fake/ cheese taste is hard to cover even after heavy peppering. The first pot I used on pasta, even the smell was rank. Couldnt finish it despite being famished. Slightly sweet and cloying texture - slightly like melted Kraft slices in a sickly way. The second pot I used for a cauliflower cheese. Really not nice. Married badly to the cauliflower. I like the carbonara sauce which has a clean genuine cheese taste.

not bad

I just used this to make a quick, afterwork, cauliflower cheese. I chose it because of its natural ingredients. In eating, it's a little bit claggy. I just rechecked the ingredients. It must be the cornflour. I added another spoonful of mustard and some more cheese. The cauliflower cheese wasn't bad, not as good as homemade, but not bad. I wil buy it again.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


Was hard to believe the quality of this cheese sauce at the price. Really delicious, with a nice cheese flavour, not bland like some of the packet sauces and other fresh sauces I have tried. Have now bought two weeks in a row because cauliflower cheese was so easy with this sauce!!

Rating: 5 star out of 5

tastes like homemade

Really great cheese sauce that fooled my family for homemade. Also when I bought it there was a 2 week date which was handy. I will be buying again.
