Very disappointing. Perhaps if you haven't had lemon curd before, or are stirring it into a dessert, it would be OK. For spreading on toast, it's not. I love lemon curd, but this was a poor imitation, and when you look at the list of ingredients, you understand why. Glucose syrup, palm oil, maize starch... Do yourself a favour and spend a bit extra for Waitrose or Wilkin Sons. Far tastier, smoother, lemony and delicious. Good lemon curd is a real treat and is worth the extra. Normally I hide my jar of lemon curd from my kids, but this time I gave it to them and they didn't finish it.

Got two pots of these and they are all gone. Too many ways to use them. I find it a little overly sweet but it is nicely tangy and the texture is really pleasant. Keep refrigerated once pot is open. I like it on toast, in yogurt, on ice cream, I also use it to fill homemade doughnuts and pastries. I even brush it on salmon before baking it into the oven for a sweet and savoury glaze: 2 heaped TBSP of curd, 1 TBSP of oil stir then brush on salmon before wrapping in greaseproof paper and baking in a hot oven.

I bought this so as to have an alternative to jam or marmalade and it tasted great in a sandwich, on toast, homemade scones or as a tart filling. It tasted nice and lemony and wasn't too sweet. It kept well in the fridge and I had to work really hard not to eat it all at once. It's good value for money and has a nice smooth texture.

Not the best lemon curd I have ever tasted, but it's undeniable that I would eat ANY lemon cured most days as it's one good that I wish the rest of Europe would embrace, thus this didn't taste as bad as it could have done. I didn't experience the grainy or lardy taste that other reviewers mentioned, but I would definitely join them in recommending Wilkin & Sons lemon Curd if you are able to shell out a bit more for it. If you aren't able though, you won't be disappointed with this one.

Grainy and not very nice, I threw mine away, the Wilkin & Sons is more expensive but a far superior product.

As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

This can be enjoyed spread on toast, scones or plain biscuits but is also a good addition to baking recipes. The flavour is quite tangy and just sweet enough. The texture is smooth and not too heavy making it very pleasant. It also takes me back to my childhood days, so it's really nice to have it available here!

I bought this after trying the lemon curd by Wilkin & Sons and I am quite disappointed.

The texture is nice, but there is a flavour in the background that does not taste quite right. It actually tastes like lard, which is not something I would like to be on my toast or on my lemon tart.

I assume the cause must be the palm oil (very bad for health!), which is usually used in food instead of butter because it is very cheap and more stable.

But if I have to have something bad for my heart and arteries, I choose butter, which has a better flavour and has not been highly processed... what are "palm fractions", for example?

Next time I will go for the more expensive version by W&S.

This lemon curd is very pleasant and it can be enjoyed spread on hot buttered toast, crusty fresh bread or as a filling to sandwich a lemon sponge together. A light dusting of icing sugar over top and you have a cake to proudly serve to your friends and family. Glad to see that I can buy this product from BCS.

Another delicious memory from my foreign student days. I've tried this one with butter on crumpets, and on "crêpes" (pancakes).

My children tasted it for the first time and loved it too, on bread after school. Very nice change from jam and honey, and more convenient to spread.

Gales Lemon Curd is the delicious treat that I was brought up on and has been sadly missing for way too long. Nothing beats the taste of a lemon curd sponge pudding all covered with a light custard on a winter's day. Or a summer sponge flan dressed with a dribble of curd all over a fluffy fresh cream filling.

Lemon curd - oh thank you BCS!

For numerous years of hunting it can now be bought and sent abroad.

I love this product and spent many days eating it by the spoonful.

Now I have matured I will obviously do adult things with it and put it in all my recipes that I have acquired over the years.

We can get zillions of kinds of jams in Germany, but I still yearn for lemon curd! A local supermarket recently had Brit jams on special offer (not permanently in the range) and I snapped up some lemon curd. Bliss! Despite the price. Now I have discovered British Corner Shop and can get Gale's lemon curd at a very reasonable price, delivered to my door. :-) I love it simply spread thickly on a slice of good wholemeal bread, but it can also be used for puddings and tarts. The possibilities are endless.

I can't find lemon curd in France, so I'm very glad to see it for sale here at British Corner Shop. It's absolutely delicious - I recommend spreading thickly on warm buttered toast. Great value for money too, particularly in comparison to some of the more expensive brands. What a treat!

I haven't tried the other brands on here so I went for the cheapest and it turned out to be so good I haven't changed since. Almost impossible to find lemon curd in Italy.

My son didn't know about lemon curd before I bought it but he was immediately enamored. At one point he was going through a jar a week and I was ordering 10 in one go.

I've also given this as a little present to Italians, it's something British and new for them. Thank you British Corner Shop for allowing my son to have his weekly supply of Lemon Curd.

I have been looking for Lemon Curd everywhere since I moved to the Netherlands and it does not seem to be a dutch delicacy! I was so happy to see Gales Lemon curd on the BCS so I will now be able to make tasty lemon tarts and yoghurt desserts!
