"Ready in minutes from frozen, in chicken or bacon and egg flavour" ... The very thought is vile, they make cheese strings look nourishing. Retch.

What are they exactly? I've never heard of them.

I was just thinking that!!! I might just get the dcs to lick a lump of lard and gargle dog poo for all the good those things will do!

rubyslippers Sun 17-Oct-10 20:48:16

They do look utterly hideous

I mean, they are savoury pop tarts

What is a Toast Me?

FakePlasticTrees Sun 17-Oct-10 20:48:55

YADNBU - I have been shouting and/or tutting at the TV every time the ad comes on.

You just know that they will split in your toaster and it'll smell all "burnt plastic chickeny" everytime you want toast from now until you buy a new toaster... (which won't be for at least 20 years, because noone ever buys a new toaster for the hell of it)

Making cheese on toast would take the same amount of time

Gah ...

I just saw the advert - they look disgusting! How they got the kid to smile I don't know...

ThatDamnDog Sun 17-Oct-10 20:53:19

They appear to be breaded squares of egg and bacon or chicken flavoured something - feck knows what - which you toast and, according to the advert anyway, feed to your hungry child. WTF's wrong with oatcakes?

Glad I'm not alone in my disgust.

LetThereBeRock Sun 17-Oct-10 20:53:37

I've just found the advert on Youtube,and watched it. They look vile,but I've still no idea what they are.

Bacon and egg flavoured toast?confused

RandomMusings Sun 17-Oct-10 20:58:45

I just barked at the tele - 'urrrrrrrr it'll be all meaty in me toaster'

I am prolly mistaken on the meat front

it's the findus crispy pancake of modern times

bleeeeeeeeeee

Just googled, www.fdin.org.uk/2010/08/toastable-meat-snack-launc hes-in-the-uk/

'Toast Me! is a straight-from-the-freezer toastable snack, with a range of different fillings available in a crumbed, toast-shaped casing. The snack product is available in the UK in the Chicken Toast Me! and the Bacon & Egg Breakfast Toast Me! variants.'

Vile. Pop Tarts are pretty vile too...
I bet these are suitable for vegetarians... surely there can't actually be meat in there...

Skyrg Sun 17-Oct-10 21:02:27

Ah Random, how foolish. The site clearly states:

'Due to the patented production process of Toast Me!, the toaster stays as clean as if a normal slice of bread was being toasted and keeps its shape without any fat escaping.'

grin

Still. Surely it would smell vile? What happens if one cracks or something?

Serendippy Sun 17-Oct-10 21:03:19

Bacon and Egg flavour, yuk. Bacon and eggs, yum though. What is wrong with a piece of toast? <lazy, uncaring and not-in-keeping-with-the-food-trends mother emoticon>

Serendippy Sun 17-Oct-10 21:04:23

'Due to the patented production process of Toast Me!, the toaster stays as clean as if a normal slice of bread was being toasted and keeps its shape without any fat escaping.'

'Due to the highly processes nature of the snack and the fact it has a film of plasticy substance all over it, the toaster stays as clean as if a normal slice of bread was being toasted and keeps its shape without any fat escaping.'

allhallowsandwine Sun 17-Oct-10 21:10:50

eww they are gross seen this advert last night and thouht yuck they just look like quicker more convienient crispy pancackes...canot belive they sell these things and anyone would in thier right mind buy them??

YANBU

TrillianSlasher Sun 17-Oct-10 21:13:30

It's a crispy pancake, isn't it?

Tippychoocks Sun 17-Oct-10 21:15:16

vile vile vile. They've tried to make the mum look all down to earth and primarky like the Iceland and Bright House ads too, exactly the same clothes. When obviously she is evil and hates her child or why feed him molten muck in sealed bread?

I was just talking about these on another thread. Reckon you would glow in the dark after eating them.

MuGGGhoulWump Sun 17-Oct-10 21:18:14

They sound minging.
Get some toaster bags from Poundland instead.

Curiousmama Sun 17-Oct-10 21:18:42

We need a bleurghhhh emoticon don't we?

TondelayooohSchwarlock Sun 17-Oct-10 21:19:34

YANBU. Vale. Just vale.

allhallowsandwine Sun 17-Oct-10 21:22:06

can you just imagine the stench from the egg one [bleurghhhh emoticon] and state of the toaster after running that through it.

Tokyotwist Sun 17-Oct-10 21:48:56

Saw the advert for the first time tonight and thought the same thing. They look about as appetising as a slice of bread fried in oil for a few days.
