The sausage was Morliny Kielbasa Parowkowa, which was purchased at Tradisia, a nice little eastern European store located on Norfolk Street, King’s Lynn. It was a difficult choice as they have a whole chiller cabinet almost full of sausages of all different shapes and sizes.
The ingredients list claims Mechanically Recovered Turkey Meat 41%, and Pork 4%. Who am I to argue? There are also six declared E numbers. These may contain gluten, so be careful you coeliacs. They also may contain celery, so ditto you celeriacs.
Bland. I was disappointed, as I’d been hoping for something similar to a good German-type of sausage. The only real flavour came from the rather rubbery casing, which tasted vaguely of Michelin Cross-Ply.
These weren’t “cookers”, so there was zero shrink factor. A rare plus point for the Morlinys!
Value For Money:
£3.28, weighing 595g - this works out as a price of £5.51 per kg, or 92p per snorker.
I was so, so disappointed with these sausages, our first eastern European contender. If these sausages were a mini-break destination, they’d be Daventry. If these sausages were a music artist, they’d be the Lighthouse Family. If these sausages were clothes, they’d be a brown cardigan. You get the idea. The original beige banger.
I tried these a couple of weeks back, but I’ve decided to publish now, rather than waste one of the regular Tuesday review slots on them.
Not to my taste, sorry.
