Aldi Cornish Pasty Review
Just a couple of points on the quality of this product. Firstly, my pasty was a bit black on the side as the edges had been burned and as you can see in the pic, the contents are surrounded by a wide gap in the pastry. Anyways on to the taste test.
As with most pastry items this pasty was quite greasy and the taste when you bite into it warm almost tastes like a weak cheese and onion pasty at first(maybe because of the burnt edge) and then as you get more central to the contents you get a bit more pasty flavour but I have to say its quite weak and bland. These is no strong flavours that you associate with a Cornish Pasty and the pastry doesn’t do much to help either.
Overall it just seems like you’re eating pastry with a bit of flavour instead of the other way round but it will fill you a bit, but I don’t think you’ll enjoy it more than a Greggs pasty that’s for sure. Overall not something to buy again, save your money for something else at Aldi.
