“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Meat „
When I was in Sainsburys with my 2 year old sister the other day she saw the packs of cooked cocktail sausages and wouldn't shut up about them until I brought her some. I usually get her the small packs for kids that have got about 5 or 6 sausages in it but this time I brought a pack of 55 sausages because I thought they would be nice to pick at.
When I opened the pack I thought the sausages looked and smelled delish, there's a proper nice meaty flavour that comes out of the pack and I couldn't wait to eat one!
The sausages are a starndard size for cocktail sausages and look nice and plump, not all wrinkly and weird like some that I brought from Asda last time! Who wants a wrinkly sausage??? lol
When I come to eat one though I realised they're deffo NOT as nice as they look. The texture is fine, it's a bit spongy but I expect that with these kinds of sausage because most of them you can buy are the same. The first sausage I had was fine but I must have got lucky because every one I had after that had at least 1 bit of gristle in it and that made me feel sick, especially when I bit into the little bit of gristle because the feel of it on my teeth was disgusting.
The taste of the sausages isn't too bad. They've only got 61% pork in them so they're not going to be the most meaty food you're ever going to eat, actually I think that is a proper low amount of pork and even worse because these deffo aren't cheap sausages and cost £2.49 for this small pack.
After I'd eaten 2 sausages I thought they started tasting majorly greasy and fatty, this wasn't a very nice taste at all and once I noticed it that was it and I didn't want any more of the sausages because the greasy taste got so strong that I couldn't hardly taste the meat through it properly.
Not recommended..... mega expensive for what they are and the flavour is very greasy. There are 133 and 9.3g fat in EVERY SAUSAGE and that's disgusting when you think about how small they are..... if they tasted better it would be easy to eat 10 of these and that's more calories than you should be eating in a whole day!!!
