ProFast and cheap loveliness

ConsNot exactly the healthiest tea around

~~*~~*~~ Mr. Brain’s Faggots ~~*~~*~~ How is it possible that something that sounds so revolting could be one of my favourite din-dins? HimIndoors won’t even contemplate eating them even though he’s commented on how nice they look and smell – I can only put it down to the fact that he doesn’t...

ProTaste lovely, cheap, easy to make

ConsNone at all

The title of this review was the suggestion of my very helpful dad!!! Mr Brain's Faggots are just the most lovely tasting thing in the whole world. I am a massive fan and so is my dad and brother. Mum's not too keen on them but she always buys them for us because we nag her to. We get ours from...

Faggots for tea - yum, yum. I sent Mark to the supermarket in search of something 'different' and this is what he came back with. I've not had them for ages (just never think to buy them!) and just scoffed 2 with chips and peas and they were delicious. The particular faggots I'm writing about are...

ProOffal that doesn't taste like offal

ConsGravy a bit tasteless and not a lot of it

At a time when every celebrity chef and his dog is extolling the virtues of offal, I thought it was time that the humble faggot had another airing. There is none humbler than Mr. Brains Faggots as found in the freezer chests in most supermarkets. None more eaten, in my part of the world, either...

ProLovely taste, fabulous gravy

ConsNot enough gravy, the faggots have shrunk!

My Nan used to make the best faggots in the world, then top them with home made gravy. Sadly this is no longer the case so I’m on to the second best, Brains Faggots. Firstly I don’t think they have the best name in the world, ‘Brains Faggots’. It gives the impression that they are actually made...

ProComforting, tasty and convenient

ConsSometimes difficult to come by

As a family we like foods that we can cook and everyone will enjoy - Mr Brain's faggots is one of those meals! In our house we serve them as a mid week roast with roast potatoes, a selection of vegetables and a rich gravy. Mr Brain's faggots have been delighting families since 1925 when Herbert...

“Faggots to you too!”

ProNice taste, plenty of sauce.

ConsNone.

When I was doing my online shopping at Tescos the other day I decided to buy myself some faggots. I hadn't had these in years, so no idea why I suddenly decided on having them now, but I put it on my shopping list. Price and Packaging I paid £1.75 for a packet of Mr Brains faggots. The packet...

ConsNone

One thing that I love is faggots ....well to be more precise these Mr Brains Faggots. They're always been a favourite food of mine and although I like faggots they are the only brand I will eat and I don't even like the ones from the butchers as I find them very dry and prefer them cooked in...

ProReally tasty, filling and cheap.

ConsHigh in fat content and look disgusting.

I am at that terrible stage just now when I fancied something really tasty for tea but didn't know what. I'm sure we've all been there, when the normal everyday meals are just not appealing anymore. So what did I do? I trawled the Tesco Internet site to see if anything appealed. After going...

“MR BRAINS AND HIS FAGGOTS”

published 14/06/2002

ProTasty, easy,

ConsOnly four per pack

Mr Brains are probably the longest established Faggot maker in the UK (if not the only ones)! So now that I am a dedicated eater of Meat faggots I feel I am now able to offer my opinion on this food item that you will probably either love or hate. Mr Brain’s faggots are made by Hibernia...

This week is national faggot week. I didnt know there was such a thing but there is so I thought heres the excuse to buy some and review them. I have only ever seen Mr Brains faggots on sale in our local Somerfield but I am sure there are other brands available elsewhere. When I was a little girl...

Wandering through Sainsbury’s recently I was pleasantly surprised to see a packet of Mr Brain’s Pork Faggots in the frozen section. The memories these bought back, were second to none as my Granddad, who sadly died a few years ago, was a huge fan of Faggots, and I remember he used to choose them...

I was struggling to decide what to cook for dinner tonight when a long forgotten packet of 6 of these little beauties feel out of the freezer! I thought - why not give them a go. I had on brought them as they were 50% extra free. Cooking ------------ These faggots come handily packaged in a tin...
