Slop in a jar

Just watery sloppy stuff in a jar. Not a patch on what it used to be.
No body, no flavour. Never again.
Bring back the old recipe and jar and I will purchase again, until then never. Show details

Why change?

When your on a good thing , stick to it !Totally agree with majority of reviews. It's watery crap now ! My father , years ago introduced me to it and I loved it ever since but the changes have had a massive impact on consumers. You may need to ask is it really worth the change for profit.???? I don't think so . Very disappointing. Bring back the original recipe andput a smile back on many consumers faces. Show details

Pecks Salmon and Lobster Paste

Pecks Salmon and Lobster Paste, which is now made in France, is definitely the most gross spread l have ever tasted. It is so Sloppy, the colour is a sickening grey colour, and next to no taste. I used to buy this paste years ago and remember it to have a pinkish colour and was a nice thick paste/spread with plenty of flavour. Why the change, l just don’t understand. I, personally, will not be purchasing any more Pecks products again. As the old saying goes, “ If it’s not broke, then don’t fix it”. Come on Pecks, fix this problem. Show details

Will never buy again

I used to love this paste! Would eat it straight out of the jar. But not anymore, why would I pay good money for a bottle of almost tasteless, grey watery slop? Well the answer is I won’t. If the company expect to make a profit I suggest the revert to the original recipe and once again produce a quality product. I will never purchase Pecks products again.

Not what it used too be

I used to love it but now it's just slop.
You can pour it out of the jar. That is not what a paste is supposed to do.
It's like water. It used to be pink in colour but it's not even that.
Very disappointed will not buy it again I have tried afew times from different locations and each jar has been the same. Show details


I’ve always love pecks as as many have said it’s changed but company doesn’t listen,it not like they are using quality ingredients and the price has gone up significantly for small jar ,so disappointing and company deleted line or gave no response,shame on you having this spread and watch profits over quality is disgusting.

Nothing but a jar of slop

As with other reviewers the paste used to have a nice pink tinge, good flavour and decent thickness for a spread. A change of recipe may have saved the company money however turned what was an enjoyable product into nothing more than a jar of grey slop. Profits before people I hear the bean counters scream out, as for me though it will stay on the shelf of the supermarket as I spend my money on products I enjoy. I used to think products were manufactured for consumer enjoyment, obviously I was wrong. Show details

This is crap

I used to like this flavour but you must of changed the recipe in the last couple of years cause now it looks a disgusting grey instead of the pinkish tinge it used to have and the taste is awful, go back to the original recipe, and the shop i got it from only has the tiny bottle which is ridiculously expensive. Show details

Very sloppy

I came looking for a website to complain about the jar that I have just finished. Very disappointed with how watery and sloppy it was, I could nearly pour it out of the jar. Won't bother with this product again. Show details

Questions & Answers


Has General Mills , distributor of Pecks Paste ever responded?


Hi Jddy,
No feedback from anyone


When will you go back to the original recipe? I’m still waiting. I hate the consistency of the new one. It’s unusable. When will you revert to the original and why did you change it?


I agree it's crap!!!!


Yes, total crap!!!
