Advantages: Intense, satisfying meaty flavour
Disadvantages: Added spices may not be to everyones taste
These Peperami Minis are really delicious, and have a concentrated meaty flavour. The "Minis" come in two flavours, the green wrapping being the original flavour(which is mild), and then there's the red wrapping which holds the hot flavour, which, as the description obviously implies, is hot in its spiciness.
The Peperami Minis are identical in taste to their "full grown fathers" but are that much smaller, to fit snugly into children's lunch boxes, presumably.
Each of the ten Peperamis are individually wrapped in a foil- like wrapper which is easily opened, to reveal the peperami, which then has another cling-film like coating wrapped around the entire stick for extra freshness.
I think these peperami sticks are an acquired taste, as the name of them suggests, being made of spice and salami, and certain children may not find them to their liking due to the strong presence of the spices.
The meat content is made from pork. with added spices, to give them that unique and satisfying meaty taste.These mini varieties, however, have only 30%fat content as compared to their other full size counterparts, which have a fat content of 44%.
An interesting fact about the product (Wikipedia website) is that the manufacturers of this product, Unilever, claim: "it was first shipped to the UK by accident in a container which was supposed to be carrying pâté. The company decided to attempt to sell the shipment to the UK market under the brand name 'Peperami'. Several new varieties have been introduced over the years with varying degrees of success".
These peperami Minis are available in Tesco's and Asda's for £2.08.
Summary: A satisfying stick of meat
