    Just wondered if anyone else thinks that the pieces taste totally diffrent to other quorn things? I like any of the coated ones and think the taste of the quorn even on its own (with batter off) tastes diffrent to the pieces you can buy in bags.
    I really dislike the pieces, they are kind of sickly and almost sweet tasting I think. I find them almost unedible. Ive got a pack of fillets as well and from what I remeber they taste like the pieces also.
    Just wondered if anyone else found this or if its me being wierd?! :confused:

    sorry cant say i have noticed this. since being on SW i haven't had the 'coated' ones anyway. Quorn is pretty bland with no real taste at all. Get creative with flavours. I mostly do 'meat' recipes, just using the quorn.

    I am making a Thai curry tomorrow night with pieces. By the time they are covered in chilli, garlic, ginger and lime, they don't taste of much!

    Not eat them! haha!
    No matter how I cook them (and always with strong flavours) they always taste the same, they have that smell in the packet.
    Maybe I should just admit defeat!

    hey i find the same thing with quorn pieces, the fillets are fine for me. No matter what sauce i cook them in they have this weird taste i really dont like! I have now stopped eating quorn because i think i over ate them in he first 2 weeks and now cant face them x

    I don't know if this helps but I always cook my pieces in veggie stock you could use chicken stock and it def alters the flavour, especially if I am having a 'plain' stir fry as they are a bit bland as you say...

    It is interesting that you mentioned the sweet flavour as I made some veggie soup today and added quorn pieces, my friend mentioned the soup tasted 'sweet' I wonder if it was the quorn?!

    Im glad im not alone!!!!!! yay! :eek:

    Good idea, might give that a try if i ever dare to buy them again, threw away the other half a packet this morning!
    Maybe it was the quorn, I find they taste sweet as apposed to savoury if you know what i mean and just makes everything taste weird!

    That really sucks that it makes you ill, i avoided it for a long time as i was scared it would but luckily its ok with me. I couldnt cope without it as a vegetarian!

    Just had the fillets and they where fab! Although i did highly flavour them as a kind of kiev!
    Yummy!!!!
