Tesco Value Sausage Roll
Disadvantages: Tasteless, difficult to discern any real flavour
Sometimes I realise that being a money saver isn't always the right thing to do, sometimes you get exactly what you pay for and although it is possible to live for a week of food on less than a tenner, sometimes you don't really have to.
I think this is a good example of the kind of product you should use discretion and pay a bit more for because although its cheap and its edible, its not something your going to get much enjoyment out of unless you smother it in some kind of sauce and totally dilute the natural (lack of) flavour.
Well cheap is as cheap does and boy does this look cheap, two manky pieces of pastry with something in the middle in a plastic wrapper with the Tesco Value sign all over it. There are indicators of health advice, calorie details and whether you can freeze the item or not. If you met this item in a crowded bar you wouldn't give them a second glance, not even after your third Cinzano and Lemonade, unless thats your bag, but I don't think it is....is it?
Well for me the nutritional advice i'd give is, if you have no food then this is food, its edible and it will help sate your hunger, other than that I think it all goes downhill.
There are 195 calories in each Sausage roll which is about a tenth of a grown man's daily requirement, so this two pack is a fifth of the food you should eat in a day. The Sausage roll weighs 60g, 9g of this is saturated fat, 11.9g is Fat, 1.4g is sugar and 1g is salt, so thats nearly half of your soggy little sausage roll giving you bad vibes.
The Big Taste Test:
The first thing I would say is that once you buy one of these things, leave it a while before eating, preferably leave it out of the fridge for a while, because straight from the fridge, it is a cold, hard taste of a life you don't want to be living, you can taste the greasy factory floor pastry, there is a small taste of something else I would love to say its the sausage but its not its the pepper in the sausage to give it some kind of discernible taste.
Overall, if you heat it, its ok, its not good, its ok at best, from cold its a taste of what life must have been life for our neanderthal forefathers (and mothers), food taken for availability without taste or flavour.
I don't like these, I like Sausage rolls and would recommend other Tesco sausage roll products and also other Tesco Value products but not these, these are a taste of life without real meat, without flavouring and where we accept value over quality.
I buy stuff to ensure my family can eat well and plentifully but with products like this I think its a case of saying, it looks cheap, it tastes incredibly cheap and it is cheap, i'll chuck this in the garden for the birds (Who discerningly wouldn't eat it either, i'm sure I heard a fox cry in the garden last night and I felt its pain knowing that its exactly how I felt during my first bite.
So overall if you only have 50p, buy a loaf of bread, make some toast, buy a paper and eat that, but this sausage roll will change your life. It will make you realise that cheap isn't always good!
