I love this Smoked Pork Sausage from Mattessons, it's wicked cold staight out of the fridge or you can cook with it so it's very versatile and not that expensive either even though the price has gone up a bit recently. It comes sort of vacuum packed into a plastic wrapper and you have to cut this open and put the sausage into another container when you first use it. The sausage has got a wicked smokey pork flavour, it's got the texture of a frankfurter and not a fresh sausage but but it's sooooo nice and addictive that I could eat it every day! The texture of the sausage is quite firm so you can cut it into thin slices if you want to without it ... Read the complete review

This is my first review of a food but I feel compelled to write because oh, what a food it is! Mattessons smoked sausages have been around for many many years, I remember them from my childhood 20-25 years ago. Although there are now a few varieties available (garlic, hot, low fat) this is the original. And the best! Taste of course is a subjective thing, but Mattessons smoked sausage tastes perfect to me, meaty and savoury but without being too strong or overpowering. The texture is perfect too, some other smoked sausages have hard 'gristly' bits in them, or a tough plasticky skin which needs to be removed before eating. Not so Mattessons. ...

There's no excuse for eating Mattessons Smoked Pork Sausages. They're like the Kentucky Fried Chicken of processed pork products - wrong on every level, yet once you have the taste for them....so good. According to recent advice courtesy of the World Health Organization, for the sake of the health of their colons, people shouldn't be eating smoked pork products AT ALL - and especially and particularly not highly-processed pork like you get in a U-shaped sausage. Probably the meat is of questionable quality - it's got a frankly, worrying 'mechanically recovered and reformed' kind of texture to it and it's not unusual to find the odd, largeish, ...

Mattessons Smoked Pork Sausage =========================== Packaging ~~~~~~ A non descript packet. Showing the large sausage contained within. Once inside the sausage is further wrapped in a vac sealed plastic sleeve. Costs vary but on average it will set you back around £1.50 Smell and Look ~~~~~~~~~~~ Even before opening the vac pac you can smell the smoky pork, delish. When the Vacuum pack is opened you are immediately hit by the aroma of the rich smoky smell. The sausage itself looks massive, in its horseshoe shape. It is firm and gratefully looks appetising; after all they say the first bite is with ... Read the complete review

If there's one thing I love with a salad it's a few slices of Mattesson's Smoked Pork Sausage, which for those of you who don't know is a ready cooked sausage that can be found in the chiller cabinet in the supermarket. It's a food that is often overlooked as being of similar nutritional standards, but surprisingly a 60g serving (which when sliced is quite a lot) contains 157 calories and 7.9g of saturated fat - which is admittedly not great but compared to 'real' sausage this is pretty good and very tasty to boot! The sausage can be eaten hot or cold, personally I prefer it cold as it has a consistency that lends itself well to salads and as an ... Read the complete review
