The team at Aunt Bessie’s has asked us to recruit 250 Mumsnetters to try out their Homestyle frozen roast potato range.

Here’s what they say: “We've selected the finest potatoes to create our delicious Homestyle Roasts. Crispy on the outside, fluffy and light on the inside, they’re perfect for your family roast. Simply pop them in the oven for 35 minutes for perfect roasties every time”.

Selected testers will each be sent four £1 vouchers, allowing them to buy two bags of Aunt Bessie’s frozen roast potatoes, available in Tesco, Sainsbury’s , Morrisons, Co-op, Waitrose and Ocado.

Testers will then try the potatoes over a one week period and will be asked to share their feedback on a thread on MN and by completing a short feedback survey. If you’re feeling brave, you can post some photos of your recipes on the feedback thread, too!
N.B. the survey and feedback will need to be completed by 14th March at the latest – products will be sent out w/c 29th Feb. Please only apply if you’re around during this time and are able to test the potatoes and share feedback then.

Selected testers who add feedback as required will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £300 John Lewis voucher.

If you’d like to take part, please sign up here and we will be in touch with those selected soon.

Thanks and good luck

My poor dad does all the peeling when we go to them for Sunday lunch. I'd love to be able to convince him that bags are ok!

Hope we're chosen.
My son will only eat potatoes if they're chips or roast potatoes, which I usually prepare myself. So it would be great to test some good quality frozen roast ones.
