It’s yummy – Miss J
A quick post to tell you about a new frozen baked potato product on the block, Bannisters’ Farm Potatoes.
They come in a pack of four normal sized ones or six little ones (known as Bannisters’ Farm Littl’uns) and you can cook the whole box of them at once in the microwave from frozen to perfectly cooked in around 15 minutes.
It might sound like a ridiculous convenience to buy something prefrozen that can be done in the microwave from raw anyway, but Bannisters are much nicer than potatoes done solely in the microwave and there’s no faffing with washing and pricking them. I think they’re quite a lot tastier than the McCain version we’ve reviewed in the past – the skin tastes more substantial and flavourful, more like it’s actually been baked in the oven, in fact, and the fluffy inners seem less prone to going soggy.
At £2.30 for four potatoes, or £2.10 for six little ones, you are paying a premium to have them pre-baked, but judging by the quality of flavour, the consistency of quality and the convenience offered, we’ll be buying them again, ready to pull out of the freezer when there just isn’t time to bake from scratch.
Disclosure: we were sent some Bannisters’ Farm Potatoes for review. No payment was received. All posts are 100% honest.
