They are so processed
They don't have the texture (or flavour) of meat
Sainsburys sell something very similar.

I never buy them any more.
Though I will concede that the Sainsburys ones, dry fried, are a very adequate low-carb post-pub booze soaker



It has been years since I had any Ikea meatballs, but my recollection is quite different. Maybe I was just hungry?

The ones instore are usually served with a gravy it's difficult to recreate at home. Though, as Slider says, the frozen ones are low carb, microwavable and perfect when you've had one to many "ales" and starving.

It sounds great but unfortunately it isn’t all that. Tesco sell them over here.


Get a load of Captain Bringdown.
If it's what I think it is, it's quite tasty and gluten-free - we keep a few of those cakes with the "Almondy" imprimatur in the freezer, for coeliac relatives.
