We've been asked by the team at Bisto to find up to 30 MNers (UK only) to try out their new Stock Melts. These hit the shops in Sept so testers would be among the first to try them out.

Bisto say "New Bisto Stock Melts are little portions of concentrated stock that contain real meat juices, herbs and seasoning to deliver extra depth of flavour and enhance dinnertime dishes with a richer taste. Whether your family enjoys traditional British fare such as home-made soups, pies and casseroles, or meals from other cuisines which have become British favourites like spaghetti bolognese or chicken risotto, there's a Bisto Stock Melt flavour to suit everyone.

Packed in individual pots, Bisto Stock Melts can be added directly in your cooking without the need to dilute them first - so no mess, no fuss - they just melt deliciously rich deep flavour directly into your home cooked meals."

If you're selected for the test you'll be sent a pack containing the full selection of products, as well as ingredient suggestions, recipes and kitchen utensils to help you create some delicious family meals (the pack is worth £30).
You can choose from a meat pack or vegetarian pack. In terms of any allergies: the on pack advice is: contains barley, wheat, gluten, celery.

We're looking for a range of people for this - people who cook for the family at home and who think they could include these in the regular weekly menu.

Selected testers will need to try the Stock Melts and then add feedback at least twice on what they cooked and how they found the Melts - you will be emailed a link to the feedback thread. Please only apply if you are around w/c 24 Sept to add your feedback.

In addition each tester who adds feedback as required will be entered into a prize draw where one tester will win a £100 voucher for Amazon

If you'd like to be considered please sign up here

Thanks and good luck

Perfect time of year for this. The casserole is being dusted off for autumn as we speak.

Indith Wed 12-Sep-12 14:31:49

I've signed up. I'd like to know if they have MSG int hem though and also their salt content or if they are doing a low/no salt one (small baby).

CouthyMowWearingOrange Wed 12-Sep-12 14:35:45

Done. I usually use Knorr, so it would be interesting to compare the two.

CouthyMowWearingOrange Wed 12-Sep-12 14:36:28

The gluten thing is a shame, as Knorr are GF.

LadyofWinterfell Wed 12-Sep-12 14:37:40

Done, would love to try them in my Macaroni Cheese Pie!

How much salt per pot, and how many pots would you use in a recipe for 4 adults? ie what salt would be transferred to the kids?

Alibabaandthe40nappies Wed 12-Sep-12 14:44:06


I use Knorr Stock Pots atm so this would be a good comparison.

WhinGin Wed 12-Sep-12 14:44:27

Done, they sound good

StateofConfusion Wed 12-Sep-12 14:44:33

Done, brilliant timing as I'm gearing up for batch cooking and stocking the freezer for dc3s arrival, and winter is all about soups caseroles and comfort food!

dramafluff Wed 12-Sep-12 14:57:43

Boggler Wed 12-Sep-12 15:00:06
