Very Poor

As mentioned previously not what you come to expect from Waitrose. Its basically onion gravy - and not a very good one at that.

Rating: 2 star out of 5


It's hard to go wrong with french onion soup - basically caramelised onions, good beef stock and some garlic. Sadly this does. First it's gloopy due to all the cornflour. And then it's true it does say sweet french onion soup but this is just too sweet; almost like a desert. And finally, no garlic. It improved with a little more salt and a squeeze of lemon, but not enough. Not Waitrose's usual standard.

Makes a delicious onion gravy for a pot roast

I bought this because the previous reviews said it tasted just like gravy and it did. Made a delicious rich stock to pot-roast my brisket of beef. Buying it again for this purpose.
