Quite Dry

I had to add some olive oil in order to be able to mix it with my pasta and make it easier to swallow. The taste itself isn't that great either.

When i first tried this about five years ago i loved it but having gone back to recently after not being able to get hold it for a while i was very disappointed, as the recipe seems to have changed. now it looks, smells and tastes like something skimmed off the surface of a pond! I will not be buying it again.

Lumpy, doesn't taste very fresh

Disappointed with this- very large lumps of cashew, bit of a stale taste. If you need a free from pesto I would recommend making your own instead - the extra effort is worth it.

bitty and horrible

There are far better vegan pestos out there than this one. This one disintegrates into tiny crumbs when stirred into pasta, these then go everywhere and it's a really unpalatable texture when eating too. The only way I could make this pesto tolerable was to blend it up with a pack of basil and herb tofu and some vegan cheese spread.

Great free from pesto

I love this pesto, it can be bought at regular supermarkets so ive had it many times, but its no more expensive from ocado, so was quick and easy to add some to my order to go in the store cupboard. Its not quite like regular pesto, its a bit dryer, not so sloppy, and more pine nutty to me, but i actually prefer it over regular pesto. Its a very refreshing taste, absolutely love it, and its wheat, dairy and sugar free, bonus!
