Iceland Slimming World Garlic Herb Burgers Review
Exclusive to Iceland are these Slimming World “Syn Free” Garlic & Herb burgers that come 4 in a pack and measure up to around 7cm in diameter and approx. 2cm thick once cooked.
They are very, very strong in Garlic(Vampires beware) and Herbs and black pepper, almost fragrant in taste. The burger itself is quite juicy at first but does feel decidedly drier the more that you chew and the texture feels cheap and grainy unfortunately, and the meat is lacking in any real flavour and is masked by the garlic and herbs. There is a small hint of spice but nothing to write home about.
Having said all that, once placed in a burger bun with mayo and ketchup, these burgers do come into their own. The strong garlic gives the whole burger a lift like a heap of garlic mayo would and the herby flavours do work well with the other ingredients. In fact they are quite tasty like that and you don’t really notice the grainy textures and meatiness absence. In fact I quite like them now and at only 4% Fat and almost 25% protein I’m liking them even more and would buy them again especially if any garlic fans are coming to our BBQ this Summer.
Beef (82%), onion, herbs (2.5%) (oregano, parsley, thyme), garlic (2%), pea fibre, water, sea salt, smoked garlic powder, black pepper, mustard powder.
