Rustlers Flame Grilled Quarter Pounder Review
Rustlers have recently revamped their products and packaging and this is one of their flagship products: The Flame Grilled Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Signature Sauce and its currently at half price in most Supermarkets. Also new to the packaging is the label of “Fully Traceable to the Farm of Origin” although it doesn’t state on the pack where exactly that farm is and where the meat is from, is it in the UK or Lithuania?
It says on the back of the pack that the bun should be toasted for full effect and I can see why, its really tough and dry once out of the microwave, I know microwave burger buns are not going to be optimal for texture and flavour but this is one of the worst that I have reviewed, even the cheaper Aldi brand ones have much softer and tastier buns. It really tastes like a McDonalds burger from the regular menu, probably because of the meat taste but mostly because the “Signature Sauce” tastes like pickle relish. I really am totally disappointed with this product, it even feels small. Taste wise its like a stale McDonalds 99p cheeseburger and nothing more. Totally let down with this revamped product, I hope they don’t mess with the Pork Rib Sandwich because that is one my favs….but I won’t be buying this again, that’s for sure, even with a toasted bun this would not be worth the full price of £2+.
