How we rate frozen party food

Our review compares frozen party food on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which frozen party food they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 851 Australians for their feedback on the frozen party/finger food(s) they’ve purchased and eaten in the last six months.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their frozen party food brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a frozen party food brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Taste: the frozen party food tasted fresh, authentic and as expected given the flavour description.
  • Value for money: the cost was reasonable given the quality and quantity of the frozen party food.
  • Variety & range: there was a wide range of flavours and types available in the frozen party food brand range.
  • Packaging convenience: the frozen party food packaging made it easy to open or store.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  2. ALDI
  3. Four’n Twenty
