(Romford) - Classy
Giggly Pig were after all the 2011 winner at
the Maldon Best of British Sausage
Awards, so as we've tried the Old
English and the chipolatas, it's now
their Classy Sausage that's in the
80% pork from their "home reared
saddle back pigs" just as the
other examples we've tried recently.
A bit darker than the other examples we noted
but certainly a good looking sausage
in the raw. We thought these
were going to be a "traditional
pork" or a "classic" type flavour...
Well let's not mince words, these have a strong
almost a "wild boar" gamey strength, with a
good bite and certainly a good
medium texture and chew. Not big on
spice though I thought, and these
were a bit too strong for one or two
here, but with our mash, onions and
gravy, for me, not bad at all.
Eaten cold by a sampling latecomer,
there were no complaints!
Mind you price-wise at £10.99/Kg
again, does make these a bit on the
high side and the strong
taste experience might not be
Nevertheless these would be worth trying.
