2.0 out of 5 stars 'Customers' unimpressed., 15 July 2014
This review is from: Alan Titchmarsh Fat Balls (Pack of 50) (Garden & Outdoors)
Got the big box of 75 Chapelwood ones before, and it took the birds who frequent my little yard about 5 weeks to eat the lot - and that's in addition to all the other stuff (mealworms, suet pellets and loads of seed) that I put out daily. These things, however - which I went for because the seller of the other ones has started charging an unfeasible amount for p&p, whereas these are on Prime - have gotten a great big 'wings down' from my feathered guests. In fact, over the last 2-3 days, many seem to have flocked off elsewhere! To be honest I can't blame them, as compared to the other fat balls these are hard, dry and chalky; even the greedy starlings have scarcely touched them
Opinion being divided among reviewers, I can only conclude that quality is very variable, which one wouldn't expect of a product which a reputable celebrity such as AlanTitchmarsh has put his name to.
Oh and to add insult to injury, the tub and its lid were, on receipt, found to be stained - liberally spattered with some brown fluid and its residue. Thankfully it doesn't smell bad, but as I have no shed and the bird food tubs are stored on a kitchen shelf, it isn't very nice is it.
So sorry, no recommend from me, on this one. I might try a tub from the local bargain shop next, once I've gotten over having wasted my money on this.

6 months later, and my opinion hasn't changed - starlings do eat the balls, but not always fast enough to stop them going mouldy in the holder. I'm not so naive that I think Mr. Titchmarsh actually had anything to do with the formulation, but I think celebrities should at least check out a product before endorsing it. Is the potential damage to your reputation, worth what the firm paid you for your name, Alan?
