Iceland Atomic Chicken Vindaloo Review
Iceland have brought out a new Limited Edition Atomic Hot Vindaloo and boy we’ve tried it…..and yes the word “atomic” is true in every sense of the word. If you like to eat food thats so hot that you break into hot sweats or a swelled tongue that can’t stay in your mouth or even a belly full of burn then this is the treat for you.
First of all as you remove the outer cardboard packaging you’ll immediately notice the large pepper in the middle of the frozen tray which is looks pretty cool actually. So, after being microwaved for the suggested 8 minutes it was put into a plate for full testing. Straight away you could see 8 pieces of good sized chicken, some small chunks of peppers and a decent amount of curry.
At first bite you can just about taste the flavour of the curry which was quite nice but after a few seconds the burn sets in. It was tested by 4 other testers many of which have either a Caribbean or Indian background and they said it was 10 on a scale of 10 and if some of them were dousing themselves with gallons of squash to cool off then you know it’s gotta be hot.
Sadly no one could finish the curry due to its fiery flavour but not before one of our testers tasted the big pepper in the middle and said that it wasn’t the hottest part of the meal as they swallowed half a cup of yogurt.
So, if you’re looking for a hot sauce to add to a dish, a strong taste after a boozy night or something to serve up to your mate that always boasts that your curry is never hot enough for them, then give this one a try. Or if you like a challenge there’s not many better ones out there for £1.50.
