Yukky bacon bones

Anybody bought yukky bacon bones from Countdown? My soup is not nice at all. It has a nasty after taste from the bones

It would be salty, you could have made pea and ham soup

I'm curious. Was there an ingredients list on the packaging? If so, what does it read?

Or, maybe the bones weren't smoked the usual way but "chemically smoked" which could probably (note to all those who like to take me to task, I said "could probably") have had an impact on taste.

I always try to buy hocks that have actually been smoked, rather than chemically treated and had a smoke flavour additive. Sometimes the information that comes with the product can be so obfuscating it is not always easy to know, hence why I always read ingredients labels for clues.

I am guessing chemically smoken- horrible:( Interesting to see somebody else had the same problem

I certainly hope that the two posters who had a problem with the bones actually took the matter up with the manager of the shop. Bacon bones are more often than not, used in soup so they should at least be edible.

I've had yucky from mad butcher. Several times I think. Last year though.agree it was the after taste. and no I didn't complain. My husband thinks I am too fussy and rolls his eyes when I comment about less than perfect food. He implies that I'm imagining it.

No you aren't. My DH notices and he has even taken stuff back and complained for me. I keep receipts for at least a month, or until my CC statement arrives and I check it. That makes it easier when lodging a complaint.
