    OK, so what's up with these gravy granules? This is the second forum where folks are pining for them. They've gotta be really good, or you Brits are simply incorrigible gravy addicts. :icon_biggrin:. Are they really easier or better than making from scratch?

    Who pinched my post?!!! I'd answered Nattydread just after he'd posted and now my post has disappeared. Did I say something politically incorrect to offend the sensitivities of parsley granules and have been moderated? All I said was that I have to hurl in a handful of fresh parsley to help take away the blandness - where's the harm in that? :icon_eek:

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    The meaty ones are quite tasty and, of course, appeal to our lazy nature, as all you have to do is plonk them into a cup or bowl and add boiling water. I imagine they will have quite a high fat content, as I can often feel my arteries furring up when I partake. It's just nice to be able to rustle up some gravy at the drop of a hat and the flavour is good. The parsley and cheese ones leave a lot to be desired, but can form the base of a sauce if you add extra parsley or cheese to perk them up a bit.


    Yes, we've been big gravy fans for a very long time. Nothing like a bit of meat and two veg.

    Joined the club and received two packets of Meat Gravy powder the next day - no parsley in them thank goodness.
    Confidentially I don't like or use the granules, I just take a vicarious interest in other peoples cravings.

    I'm lazy about cooking too, but it's easy for me to volunteer the OH to make gravy :icon_biggrin:
