Borg’s is best in frozen party foods review

Whether you’re a kid or an adult, no celebration is truly complete without some party pies or mini pizzas to snack on. If you’ve bought frozen party foods from your local supermarket before, you’ll know there’s a big difference in the quality, variety, and price of frozen products. So, which brands are worth stocking up on and which aren’t?

To find out, we’ve canvassed the opinions of more than 400 Aussies consumers who’ve purchased (from a supermarket) and consumed frozen party foods in the last six months. Respondents rated their respective brands on important factors including taste and quality of ingredients, ease of preparing, range variety, packaging design, value for money, and overall satisfaction. Those that received the minimum required survey sample size of 30 responses are included in our results.

What are the healthiest frozen snack foods?

Frozen party foods aren’t known to be the best thing for your waistline or to be highly nutritious, but options with vegetables and protein like triangles, cocktail spring rolls, dim sims, and quiches are naturally healthier than say sausage rolls, pies, or frozen cheese sticks. Just be sure to read the nutritional information on the packaging.

Is it bad to eat frozen foods?

There’s virtually no risk of food poisoning by consuming frozen foods unless they’ve been contaminated before freezing. This is very unlikely though, but some frozen products have previously been recalled due to contamination risks. Just make sure to cook your frozen foods thoroughly to avoid bacterial hazards.

Frequently Asked Questions

Canstar Blue surveyed more than 3,000 Australian adults across a range of categories to measure and track customer satisfaction, via ISO 26362 accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics. The outcomes reported are the results from customers within the survey group who have purchased (from the frozen section of the supermarket) and eaten frozen party foods (i.e. mini pies, mini pizzas, triangles, etc.) in the last six months – in this case, 438 people.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included. Results are comparative and it should be noted that brands receiving three stars have still achieved a satisfaction measure of at least six out of 10. Not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The ratings table is first sorted by star ratings and then by mean overall satisfaction. A rated brand may receive a ‘N/A’ (Not Applicable) rating if it does not receive the minimum number of responses for that criteria.
