I mean, banana and bacon trifle? Really?????

Has anyone brought it or tried it?

SocksRock Sat 24-Dec-16 17:14:55

I thought it was quite a well known combo? I've certainly had it before.

LeadPipe Sat 24-Dec-16 17:15:36

I saw that! Has anyone tasted it?

But then I thought he'd lost the plot on that horrid prawn cocktail with vanilla in it, it was well and truly repulsive.

I thought the bacon fad was over - is he being retro? fsmile

It's vile. I tried some in Waitrose. Yuk.

I'm convinced at least 60% of his sales are people showing off about the gastronomic adventurousness

I thought this was gonna be about Charlton Heston and his gun lovin' but then I googled and saw he died in 2008.


But yes, you're right, OP. That sounds vile. It must be the alliteration of the 'b' sound that inspired the creators.

I tried it in waitrose. It's disgusting.

I bought some of his pine mince pies a few years back (as they were half price). They smelt of toilet cleaner and tasted beyond foul.

He is such a twat who thinks he is sooo kerrazzy.

Those Waitrose adverts with the really amplified sounds of banana and bacon trifle being slopped out and chocolate cake being cut actually make me feel sick and I do not know why.

They certainly don't make me want that banana and bacon trifle, not that I did in the first place.

LeadPipe Sat 24-Dec-16 17:21:22

The only thing I've liked of his is the Salted Caramel Popcorn. It really is nice. But that's not a weird combo.

ThisIsStartingToBoreMe Sat 24-Dec-16 17:21:59

lol you've made me laugh with these comments

I always thought it was just me who thought he was a bit of a twat.

They tried it on lorraine last week Lorraines faces grin you could see her looking for a tissue apparently it was interesting. Worst takeaway sandwich i ever had was hestons at a waitrose service station cheese and pickle was rank how anybody can bugger up cheese and pickle is beyond me and it was £4.99

Knew this would be about that trifle. Texted DH a photo of it from waitrose earlier today, got about 400 'NO NO Nooooooo!' back.
So that's a No then.

LeadPipe Sat 24-Dec-16 17:29:31

AgentCooper there is a decidely dodgy sounding squelch in the commercial isn't there? I couldn't believe it was so loud.

That sound wouldn't be out of place in a fish gutting scene or grisly murder scene. It make me wince and definitely did not leave me wanting to eat trifle!

intheknickersoftime Sat 24-Dec-16 17:29:46

I've bought one of his puds for tomorrow. I do hope it's not shit. We've only recently had a Waitrose and I got over excited.

Sparklingbrook Sat 24-Dec-16 17:37:43

He has also done 'Edibaubles' which are very expensive teeny tiny chocolates.

AgentCooper Sat 24-Dec-16 17:38:43

Yes, Lead, that's what it's like! Like intestines getting pulled out by zombies or something. It's a horrible....physical sound grin

Waitrose can do one.

MrsJayy Sat 24-Dec-16 17:41:24

Squelchy waitrose advert is very odd i turn it down it reminds of that zombie programme Dd watches

Hellmouth Sat 24-Dec-16 17:42:58

The description of the pudding sounds amazing until you get to the bacon bit :|

Sounds bloody disgusting, reminds me of Rachel's "trifle" in Friends grin

PinkSwimGoggles Sat 24-Dec-16 17:44:21

banana wrapped in streaky bacon grilled is divine.
but in a trifle?

Cantgetmyoldnameback Sat 24-Dec-16 17:45:05

On one episode of Come Dine with Me, someone made trifle with sausages in.

I don't think Heston's sounds much better!

JennyHolzersGhost Sat 24-Dec-16 17:46:15

Baffling and presumably his partnership with Waitrose is some kind of postmodern joke perpetrated by the art community on the general public. Who buys this stuff ?!

P1nkP0ppy Sat 24-Dec-16 17:46:25

They were desperately trying to sell them in Waitrose yesterday. I don't think i've ever tasted anything so disgusting.
Soapy and quite frankly nauseating.

SauvignonBlanche Sat 24-Dec-16 17:48:04

I got a sample in Waitrose, I couldn't taste the bacon at all - thank God!
