I taste tested M&S' £6 Christmas turkey dinner that comes in a plastic tub – what it’s really like & the extra it needs | The Sun

FROM the turkey to the veg and roast potatoes, cooking a Christmas dinner can be both stressful and expensive.

But one food fan decided to put M&S' microwavable turkey roast dinner to the test – and it costs just £6 and comes in a plastic tub.

Ben took to TikTok (@benbulks) and taste tested the roast dinner which includes British turkey, golden Yorkshire pudding, rich gravy, pigs and blankets and veg – before giving it a very honest review.

In the clip, he begins: "Usually these things, it's just like a bunch of veg, potato or two, but no, you have got everything.

"You've got two pigs in blankets as well and quite a big Yorkshire.

"The only thing is the turkey….I was like, 'oh, it doesn't actually have any turkey, but it does – it's just a piece in there with that gravy."

Ben goes on to say that it's a "bit of a pain" because it's one of those microwavable meals where you have to add things throughout.

However,after cooking it for the required amount of time, he goes on to note that there's actually three pieces of turkey rather than one slice, which he's delighted with.

Taking his first bite of the meat, he says: "The turkey is solid, it's in a gravy and is very well seasoned.

"This veg has been cooking for ages.

"I mean, it's veg, it's obviously not seasoned…you know, veg is veg at the end of the day."

Ben then moves onto the stuffing ball and notes: "It's alright, it's quite tasty for a stuffing ball."

Holding up a golden crispy potato to the camera, he observes: "You can tell as well that is very decent quality.

"The pig in blankets are really nice and that's a very good size Yorkshire if you ask me.

"That gravy is very nice actually, and the fact that you get three pieces and not just one bit of turkey – class, very class.

"It's very decent. Is it worth six quid?

"Overall quality…usually these kind of one container roast dinner things are pretty s***, but this is actually really solid."

The post has since gone viral, racking up a whopping 58k views and several comments from social media users.

"That looks banging," wrote one.

A second penned: "Should put Brussels, not carrot and peas."

A third commented: "Arranged on a plate it would have been equivalent to a works Christmas party meal – and £6 is OK."

Meanwhile, a fourth noted: "Veg looks a little tragic (but mainly cos I hate steamed veg), other stuff looks pretty decent!!"
