This thread is for the Mumsnetters who have been trying out the new Stock Melts from Bisto with their family.
We have some questions for you to answer but we'd love to hear about how you are using them over the next couple of weeks.
Do post links to any recipes you use them in and give the family feedback on taste as well!

All testers who add feedback to this thread will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
If you're not a tester but have any queries of Bisto or with a tester please do post it and we will endeavour to get a response.

Q1. What were your initial impressions of the Bisto Stock Melts?
Q2. How was it using the Stock Melts? How did this compare to using a cube or other stock?
Q3. Did you and your family notice any difference in the taste of the dish compared to your usual recipe?
Q4. Did you and your family like the taste of the Stock Melts or not? Did it make the flavour any richer/deeper or not? How would you describe the flavour of the Stock Melts?
Q5. Which dishes did you use the Bisto Stock Melts in? Which recipes are you planning on using them in?
Q6. The RRP of the Bisto Stock Melts is £1.89 for a pack of 6, do you think you will buy them again or not? If so why? If not, why not?
Q7. If it came up in conversation, would you recommend the Bisto Stock Melts to a friend/relative? If so why? If not, why not?

Thanks and good luck with the prize draw.

It's been a few weeks and in spite of my initial misgivings I have continued using the melts. The vegetable melt is for my family the most useful as it has a non specific flavour and will season a couscous or rice well. We eat a lot of international food (Middle Eastern and Asian in particular) and I can't use these melts in any dish other than a typical British meal due to the over powering flavour of "roast" which is shame as they are substantially cheaper than the stock pots I do use. They are also saltier than directly comparable stock pots which has surprised me after reading all the "lower in salt" comments.
