Doubt the packet even contained a whole butternut squash. Most of the bits were mushy.

So much easier than fresh. No peeling and chopping and goes straight into the oven for about half an hour. A little olive oil and rosemary and it's so much better than spuds!

perfect for soup

I hate cutting and peeling butternut squash, find it a very difficult task, so these are ideal, very tasty in soups or roasted.

couldn't eat this!

I am not fussy- school meals, hospital food, airplane meals.. I have eaten them. I could not eat this. It was like stringy sponge despite cooking as per instructions. I was disappointed as it was generally well reviewed. I love squash but will be buying fresh difficult to peel from now on.

was fab, now full of pith and string

This has been a regular in my basket for ages and is genuinely a great item, but the last few bags have been a real disappointment. The larger chunks are almost inedible and appear to be little more than 'reformed string' from the core of the vegetable, I say this as when they are cooked it's akin to eating a BNS flavoured hair ball. I'll gladly re-review more positively when the quality has reverted, and in the interim I will just have to weep at the falorn risotto that is now my dinner!
