I’ve had another day of headaches but I’m hoping some fresh air tomorrow will help shake them. This is my fifth day in a row of posting and even though some of these blogs have gone up quite late I am proud that so far I’ve stuck to what I’ve planned.
Today’s post is a review of Taifun cocktail sausages.
I saw these in my local health food store and noticed they were reduced. I love trying new things and getting a bargain so these were a win-win for me. I had also never tried tofu based sausages before so I was interested to see if I liked them.
The texture was very much like tofu and while the texture was okay and the flavour was nice I couldn’t shake the notion that sausages are not supposed to be that soft. The flavour was smokey and a little spicy though they weren’t particularly strong in flavour. I ended up having half the pack cut up in noodles because I figured that the soft tofu texture would pair well with them. They were a little better in noodles than when I ate them by themselves but they just felt wrong and I wouldn’t buy them again. However, for 99p they were so cheap that I didn’t really mind.
Ingredients: Tofu 75% (soya beans 55%, water, coagulating agents: magnesium chloride, calcium sulfate), cold-pressed sunflower oil, soya sauce (water, soya beans, wheat, sea salt), oatmeal, sea salt, thickening agent: guar gum, fenugreek, coriander, white pepper, black pepper, sweet paprika, hot paprika, caraway, garlic, beech wood smoke.
Hope you’ve had a fantastic week, despite this rubbish weather
