Goes off pretty quick
Had this a few times, but goes slimy very quickly even when its kept in the fridge.

Bit of a lottery
The ham itself is pretty good and worth the price but unfortunately in my last order the pack contained mostly ham scented air instead of actual ham. I'm not sure how common this is but getting a pack that's barely 1/4 full isn't exactly what's shown on the display picture.

Rather random quality. If your lucky you get some really tasty slices however the last lot was strangely sweaty and greasy though the date was OK and didn't cause any problems, just not as appetising. Bit of a lottery.

Not what it used to be
I used to buy this a long time ago, was always really nice. I thought I'd try it again recently, it is awful, will not buy anymore, was just extremely hard and chewy.

Real tasty ham, quality. Can sit and eat the whole packet minus the fatty bits. Buy it all the time.

Looks like the off cuts, but so delicious! I always buy this! Great chunks of yummy ham, no fat, great in sandwiches, salads, cooking, all sorts!

Wasn't expecting too much for the price but wow was I pleasantly surprised. Slices of smoked ham, no fat just tasty ham. Definitely recommend and will be buying regularly.

Tasty ham pieces, like off cuts but good value, a lot of ham for the money
Submitted by John
Great for price
Huge amount of ham for the money. Cuts are very variable, sometimes it's chunky pieces, other times it's misshapen slices. Tastes good either way though!

Poor quality off cuts, VERY salty

Hit or miss ham!
Can be lovely and lean, I've had this ham when its been like that , also when it's been fatty and disgusting. I buy online so I take the chance.

Just an update to my review below, Last pack I bought was cheap reformed ham and pretty tasteless and fatty. 3 out of 4 packs purchased were great value.
Submitted by Paul
Bought once, Ham was some large and small trimmings from proper ham, Not the reformed stuff. Buying again this month :)

Bought this a few times and it was lovely, this last pack we bought went in the bin. It was tough and didn't taste good.

I bought this ham a couple of weeks ago and was very happy with it. Big pieces of carved proper ham, not plastic ham. So bought another online this week, very disappointed as it was thin smoked plastic ham, horrible, threw it away, pity its not consistent, better picking your own if you go into store and buy this product.

Have bought this ham regularly for the past few months and have never been disappointed,

Considering the cheap price it's quality meat. Sometimes large slices, sometimes bits & pieces, but always excellent quality. It's labelled as "trimmings" so quit complaining (those that have!). They still make for great sarnies, quiches, or even to eat straight from the pack!

Only giving one star because I can't give zero. Bought this based on the photo - in reality it's lots of pressed together wafer thin tasteless and slimy rubbish that unlike some reviews have mentioned, I wouldn't even give it to my dog. It looks like some of these packs must be proper ham, but if they're going to use online shoppers as a captive audience who can't see what they're buying, then I'm sure they (Iceland) won't have too many repeat orders from some people - including me!

Excellent ham; so very fed-up with wet, slimy ham which is tasteless. This is excellent value for sandwiches or ham with eggs. Only ham I buy apart from ham at the butchers which is far more expensive and my husband won't eat packet ham normally.

Only fit for the dog
Mostly ground up processed ham, with no taste really. I cant do much with it but give it to my dog on top of his food. Don't waste your money.

This mish-mash of bits of ham is not slices at all. Not a particularly nice tasting ham. Rubbish.
Submitted by Paul Robinson
Think you have to realise what this product is, and I am an ex butcher. When you boil a ham for cold meat the end parts become too narrow to make into attractive slices, so they are hacked off, and are the butchers perk or sold cheap for pea and ham soup etc. These are the end cuts and are the best bits, much tastier than a mid slice. At £1.50 for best part of a pound of quality meat this must be the deal of the century. (The hams are actually sealed into a bag before going onto the boil, so the flavour stays in)

Brought this to try having noticed the bargain price and it's a weekly favourite now. Nice thick slices, hit and miss as to the sizes but a bargain and tasty.

I must admit this was an on line shop impulse purchase, but I thought for the price I would give it a go! I wish that I hadn't bothered. I usually buy this from Aldi and the product there can be hit and miss but at least you can see it before you buy...this was absolutely RANK!!... it tasted just like cheap Hot Dogs with a very weird rubbery type texture... the slices were also as thick as a doorstep too...will not be buying this again !! Wish I could give it 0 stars.
Submitted by Nicola
Didn't really taste of anything and was a bit rubbery. Cheap though!
Submitted by Hugh
Really nice and good value. I must admit, I buy this in store to pick it myself.
Submitted by Dawn
Normally this ham is of reasonable quality but the last pack we had was so rubbery that we had to give it to the dogs.
Submitted by Iain Mac
Usually really nice pieces of ham but if you're going to buy I suggest you buy in store so you can check it first. I purchased online and it was rubbish, full of fat and gristle. Will give it 4 stars just because when bought in store I check it and when it's good it's great value.

Tastes home made and smoked. Generous pieces. The children love it.
