Finnebrogue’s Wagyu Burger was judged the overall favourite in WhichUK?

Finnebrogue Wagyu Burger
WhichUK? taste test panel munched their way through 10 varieties of beef burgers to find out which ones you should be barbecuing this summer.


To find out which burgers are worth spending more on, they asked 71 burger fans to rate 10 premium offerings from the likes of Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Aldi and Tesco in a blind taste test.


Finnebrogue boldly states on the front of its pack that it’s ‘probably the best burger in the world’. While our testing isn’t quite extensive enough to verify that claim, there’s no doubt it’s one of the tastiest supermarket premium burgers you can buy. Its flavour-packed patty was the best rated burger on strength of flavour and it got top marks for texture too, with most finding it to have just the right level of juiciness. As the only wagyu burger we tested, it’s on the pricey side at £4 per pack of two, but if you’re looking to impress your barbecue guests this summer, it’s a great choice.

Finnebrogue stole the show with its flavoursome wagyu burger impressing our panel. But we also uncovered some pricey options that were lacking in flavour, including an expensive supermarket burger costing £5 per pack.

How does WhichUK? test beef burgers?

The products were assessed by a large panel of consumers who regularly buy and consume beef burgers. The make-up of the panel broadly represents the demographic profile of adults in the UK. Each burger was cooked following pack instructions for best results.

The panellists rated the taste, texture, aroma and appearance of each product and told us what they liked and disliked about each one.

The taste test was blind, so the panellists didn’t know which brand they were trying. The order they sampled the beef burgers was fully rotated to avoid any bias. Each panellist had a private booth so they couldn’t discuss what they were tasting or be influenced by others. The overall score is based on: 50% taste 20% appearance 15% texture 15% aroma.
