a freezer essential

Have been buying this for years. Usually very good quality, cooks quickly and tastes almost as good as fresh. Highly recommended.

Not bad, but a little tasteless

We've had a few bags of this broccoli and it has been fine. We both thought it was a little tasteless in comparison to fresh, but we expected that and keep it in the freezer only as a backup. However, when we ran out of this and happened to be in another 'well known supermarket' we purchased there own brand bags (but not from the basics range) which was cheaper, delicious and full of flavour! I doubt we'll be buying the Waitrose one again.
