To think some jars of baby food are actually rather nice?

Sometimes I want to eat them myself.

Is this common?

I was glad to have DC3 9 years after DC2 as it meant I had a legitimate excuse to get the baby chocolate pudding that Heinz make blush

Just the way they look - and some smell - puts me off putting them near my mouth so can't comment on how they actually taste!

APparently its a diet craze among starlets and the like in the states. Read it in A A gill's restaurant review the other week

YANBU! some of the fruit puddings are delish! grin

Heinz nice.

Cow and Gate inedible tasteless glue.

Organix exotic type ones nice. 'English' fayre made of potato and water. Ick.

I'm not on the diet, honestly. I just lick the spoon at the end.

And rusks are unbearably delicious.

Oh, and on the rare occasions I've ponced up to plum baby or ella's kitchen, they have been gastronomic delights.

One of MIL's friends has an eating disorder and after spending a few days with us on holiday when DS1 was a toddler got a thing about Goodies products. It was the 'it's sweet without added sugar' thing that set her off. Particularly the carrot cake bars.

the heinz tapioca/apricot pudding used to be a favourite with me blush

*disclaimer, this was 26yrs ago

my mouth is watering now grin

YANBU. Only the sweet ones though.

The savoury ones all taste exactly the same - ie of not much.

rogersmellyonthetelly Thu 30-Jun-11 19:01:08

Savoury ones are repulsive and taste of mushy tomato grainy spuds and water. The puddings are ok, but rusks are delish

DaisyLovesMetronidazole Thu 30-Jun-11 19:02:44

Yes, Rusks are fab!

meditrina Thu 30-Jun-11 19:05:02

Peach/apricot puree is lovely! (And can be the start of a range of cheat's puddings).

Hipp cocoa and vanilla pudding is lovely. Like old school chocolat blancmange.

GwendolineMaryLacey Thu 30-Jun-11 19:14:57

Creamed porridge is delish. smile Yes, savoury ones are shite.

DaisyLovesMetronidazole Thu 30-Jun-11 19:16:52

Agree on savoury, bar the heinz fruity chicken casserole and lamb and pumpkin stew.

I loved the apple and pear one. One of my dd's loved the Heinz pasta and mushroom one.

My dd's are 9, 7 and 3 and love the desserts. I buy them if they are on speacial offer instead of yogurts

IDrinkFromTheirSkulls Thu 30-Jun-11 19:25:51

Dh has a think for the Heinz banana delight. It was on our shopping list long before we had a baby grin

The Hipp baby rice that you make up with milk is absolutely gorgeous.

When I fed DS it was "one for you, one for mummy.." blush

Ella's kitchen mango baby brekkie is totally yummy.
