“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Snacks „
I have lots of grandchildren who love to snack when they come to visit or stay and I love food and snacking as I have a big appetite and I saw these egg bites from the Sainsbury's Basics range of lower branded foods and thought I would give them a try. They come in a plastic carton with a pull off plastic topper and inside there are 12 small round balls around an inch and half in diameter and inside each ball is Pork Sausage meat filled with egg mayonnaise and coated with breadcrumbs, they are a decent size for a snack and each one is placed into an individual holder inside the carton to stay in place. The texture of them is soft and they are easy to chew and swallow and the quality is a very good one, and they taste delicious, the breadcrumbs are golden brown and the texture of the crumbs is nice and soft, not at all hard like I first thought they would. They were priced at only 83p and can be found in the fridge department at Sainsburys and they are their own lower branded foods, I would say the amount of filling is quite adequate and it is not all breadcrumbs like some other lower priced ones are in my opinion, I found them to be just the right amount and my grandchildren love them and they filled them perfectly until their main meal time. These are ideal for picnics and packed lunches and also parties or BBQs for an addition snack and for a dozen I think they are excellent value for money and extremely good quality. 3 of these bites contain 164 calories, 9.2g of fat, and 2.4g of saturates and so if anyone is trying to keep an eye on their weight as my wife is at the moment, I think they contain a small amount for a little treat. The combination of the meat and the mayonnaise in my opinion is a nice food and when eaten you can taste both of them and they are not at all bland and they are very enjoyable as a snack, and I ate some of these with a salad and they tasted just as good with the meal as I find it sometimes a little boring having a salad with some meats and I found these bites nice with the salad too as well as on their own as a snack. They are easy for young children to hold and just the right size for them. I do highly recommend these for anyone to try as I think they are excellent value for money and affordable and I will be buying them again as I was pleased with the taste and quality of these bites and especially the very cheap price. I rate them 5 stars.
