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.

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!!

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.

Nice basic sauce

It's never going to be the most cheesy, flavour-full sauce ever, but it's certainly very pleasant, with a subtle taste and just the right consistency.
