[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Beef Burgers

I am not really a fan of beef burgers because a lot of them contain chewy bits just like sausages.
Being a Marks and Spencers fan, I got the beef burgers to try.

When you grill them, there is a strong gamey beef smell and quite a lot of oil comes out from it.
As for the taste, it was perfectly fine with a hint of black pepper and the burger is not overly seasoned which gives you room to add sauces if required.
The texture of the burger was juicy and soft.

[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Blackcurrant Juice Jelly

From trifles to mousse you will find jelly at the dessert section.
The thing that takes Marks and Spencers jelly to the next level is the use of fresh berries.
There is Blackcurrant Juice Jelly and Raspberry Jelly.
The blackcurrant juice jelly is interesting in the sense that it has blackcurrant juice which is why I tried it.

Yet in the jelly itself there are blueberries as well as blackberries.

The blueberries are plump and fresh that they literally pop in your mouth, the blackberries had some pips in them but overall I loved the jelly.
However the texture of the jelly is not wobby but more like a gel.

[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Raspberry Jelly

From trifles to mousse you will find jelly at the dessert section.
The thing that takes Marks and Spencers jelly to the next level is the use of fresh berries.
There is Blackcurrant Juice Jelly and Raspberry Jelly.
Tried the blackcurrant juice jelly so this time got the Raspberry Jelly.
Out of the two, I liked Raspberry, again the raspberries were fresh and sweet.
The raspberry jelly had a full taste to it so I am so glad I tried this.
However the texture of the jelly is not wobby but more like a gel.

[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers 4 Egg Custard Tarts

Nothing beats a delicious egg custard tart from Marks and Spencer.
These taste better than Chinese egg tarts as the filling is creamy with a lovely custard taste infused with nutmeg on a shortcrust pastry.
As well as the 4 pack, they also come in 2s.



[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Taste Buds kids fromage frais

Fromage frais is a popular yoghurt found in supermarkets so as I am gradually trying to try all their items I decided to try their fromage frais.
Just like the other supermarkets, it has six pots, 2 of each flavour for apricot, strawberry and raspberry.
It is hard to say which one was my favorite because they are all equally as good but the texture is thick and velvety with a taste that is fruity without being too sweet or tart.
The pots are clear plastic which makes them quite pretty but you can't really notice the clear plastic pots as it is covered.




[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Balanced For You Aromatic Lamb Curry

The Marks and Spencers Balanced For You series are prepared meals with balanced proteins as well as carbs so you are getting both.

This time I tried the Aromatic Lamb Curry which was tasty and satisfying, being a balanced meal there were lean chunks of lamb while the rice pilaf had a good deal of lentils, green peas and coriander leaves.

Overall, I would recommend it was the lamb curry was quite delicious.

[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Balanced For You Mexican Style Beef Chili

The Marks and Spencers Balanced For You series are prepared meals with balanced proteins as well as carbs so you are getting both.

This time I tried the Balanced For You Mexican Style Beef Chili, I really liked it because the chili con carne tasted how it should with lean beef.
The rice was balanced with sweetcorns and black beans making colourful as well as healthy.

[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Balanced For You Sundried Tomato Chicken

The Marks and Spencers Balanced For You series are prepared meals with balanced proteins as well as carbs so you are getting both.

Tried the Balanced For You Sundried Tomato Chicken which was nice because of the sun dried tomatoes but the chicken was a bit bland as it was lean chicken.
I think the dish might have been better off without the chicken overall.
Overall, my favourite in the Balanced For You series would have to be the Mexican style Chili Beef.




[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Smooth Broccoli & Stilton Soup

Tried the Marks and Spencers Smooth Broccoli & Stilton Soup which is I think could be a bit hard core for some people.
I think the trick is not to over heat the soup or the Stilton will go a bit pungent.
Overall, I am ok with Stilton so I liked it.



[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Very Veggie Stonebaked Pizza

A while ago try the M&S BBQ chicken which I found a bit too sweet so this time I got the Marks and Spencers Very Veggie Stonebaked Pizza.


On the pizza, you could visually see grilled onions, chestnut mushrooms, peppers and sweetcorn.





To summarize the pizza was tastier than I expected because of the meaty mushrooms and onions.
The sweetcorn which I usually find annoying were the stars as well because they were fresh and not canned which gives it a better texture and flavour.

Overall, I would definitely recommended this Very Veggie Pizza.



[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers 4 Chocolate eclairs

Its not the first time I've had Marks and Spencers Chocolate eclairs but this time I got the 6 pack which are slightly smaller in size compared to the 2 pack.
To honest, the Chocolate eclairs at Marks and Spencers fare better because the chocolate fondant does not dry off and become hard.
The chocolate fondant remains soft while the chocolate taste is not too sweet complimented by the delicious choux and fluffy cream int the middle.

As well as the chocolate eclair, the caramel eclair is equally as good.



[Review] M&S Marks and Spencers Pork Crackling seasoned with Sea Salt

This is an old review from M&S Hong Kong 2015 which hasn't been posted here.

This branch of Marks and Sparks is located right inside Admiralty MTR so I ended up going there because I was early while waiting for someone and got a bag of pork cracklings.
Unfortunately, they seemed to have gone off with a rancid taste but they were still crispy.
Taste was quite salty as well.
