YORKSHIRE-based supermarket Morrisons are behind the worst Yorkshire puddings in the high street, experts said.
They are so bad that consumer body Which? said diners would be ‘off their trolleys’ to buy them.
Tasters said of the frozen puds knocked out by the Bradford chain: “These are the only Yorkshires on test that we’d suggest giving a miss if at all possible.
“Many of our tasters felt these puddings were both too pale, soft and moist, with a flavour that dissipates almost before you’ve taken your first bite.
“That’s too many issues in one pudding to make these worth recommending.”
Marks and Spencer took the top spot in the consumer taste test rankings, with Aunt Bessie’s close behind.
Which? said of the M&S £1.25 for 12 bag: “They’re some of the more expensive puds per 100g, but they’re worth every penny.
“While Yorkshires are more of a vehicle for your meat, gravy and veg, our tasting panel rated these as the top-scorer by far for flavour, meaning they don’t just accompany, they really add to your roast.
“The testers also rated M&S’s Yorkshires highly for texture; the panellists found these puddings had wonderfully moist middles and crunchy outer layers. M&S proves here that buying frozen needn’t result in compromise.”
They rated Aunt Bessie’s highly as well but marked them down for being 40p a bag dearer than M&S.
Third place went to Sainsbury’s and Which? noted: “Only one of two puddings on test where many of our tasters thought the colours were all wrong; with many of our panellists noting these puddings were too dark for their tastes.
