My dear partner bought me an egg and bacon flan. I don't know why, since I can make that myself, but anyways, I decided to have a slice and it confirmed all my deep misgivings about bought flans. It was horrrrrrrrrible. Runny yukky awful. Then later I read the box. It was part cooked, to be finished in the oven . . . Tip for everyone. If it is a new product, READ the box! Saves a truly disgusting food experience!

Oh my I bet that was a mess...Did your partner think it was fully cooked when purchased? I always read the instructions as well as the ingredients before I pay for anything. It's so frustrating to get home with an item and find out you can't even eat it. You have to be careful when you have type 2 diabetes. I hope it didn't make you or anyone else sick.

No, it didn't make me ill but I did feel sick, mainly at the awful taste. I am sorry you have the diabetes but maybe it does help you because you read the labels properly. I don't think he considered whether it was cooked. It was a flan, I had written "flan" on the list so he had done as he was told and bought a flan. To save time. Which to a woman means "I don't have to cook". I have made a batch of my own now, at least I know they are cooked!

Ugh! Undercooked food is always fun. It might not have been so bad cooked completely though. I can't say I've ever tried a breakfast flan before.

A properly cooked egg and bacon flan is a nice treat sometimes as a change from the normal breakfast. I usually enjoy it immensely but honestly, this was vile. My own fault for not reading the label and for trusting him to get something right lol.

Yup, but what else should I expect when I trust him to pick the shopping? I keep a much closer eye on things now, I can tell you!

Yup it was truly disgusting. It was my own fault, I assumed it was cooked, and can not think why he bought a part cooked one, since I can make these myself and they always taste really good!
