If any UK people happen to be on just now...

Can you tell me if Fray Bentos pies are actually any good? and if so, which is the best? (Been wanting to buy some and have them shipped to try)

well, it's a pie in a can, so it is what it is.
I remember eating them when I was younger and I enjoyed, maybe I was starving hungry.
It's kinda like fancy dog food.. lol

I wouldn't buy them for my kids.

[@435994,MightyMarvellous] It doesn't look or smell good and neither does a Fray Bentos pie but at least you're aware of what shit consists of.

Pastry tends to be dry and flaky on top but sometimes a bit stodgy and undercooked underneath.
That said, it is something i use as a 'cupboard filler'. You know. Like having tins of soup or a packet of crackers handy...just in case.
[@448576,Picklebobble2] right!, my ex fiance(scottish) used to love them fiercely, but i never got a chance to try them, it was always the crust i was seeing? the top part that was all flaky looking, iot looked amazing, and it makes me want to try one to see if they're as good as they looked

[@367459,DancingStarGoddess] The pastry it has to be said is pretty good but the filling can be a bit on the light side.
That said, if you add a vegetable or two it's a half-decent meal.
[@448576,Picklebobble2] thank you! that sounds like it would be pretty decent actually

They arent bad but I've tasted better but I do currently have one in my cupboard

Fresh pies are much nicer - personally I wouldn't try them
Buy the steak pudding
[@421229,badboy4u2day] thank you for the head's up!
[@367459,DancingStarGoddess] no worries, it's in suet case instead of pastry

Never had a Fay Bentos pie, but I remember their tinned corned beef from years ago. I miss it.

NO, don’t, smells like dog meat
[@839852,BigGuy2] Really? Damn but they look so yummy. I have an ex who eats the things like they're the most delicious thing ever.

They are OK if somewhat processed in taste, and made for a previous age when people didn't have freezers. Given the choice I'd buy fresh or chilled. Last had one a few years ago. They're freely available here.
