Chipolata Top 5
- we decided to include a separate listing for the chipolatas because the "little fellas" need a bit more visibility!  Chipolatas are not just kids food.  Try some and tell us we're wrong!


Our Reviews (only pork!)
- we admit yes we've been mainly sampling pork sausages in our reviews, and now we've been accused by a journalist friend of frankly ignoring some of the really good other meaty sausages out there.
OK don't send the boys round! - we've made a start on "other than pork" examples... 

Mind you prospect of sampling chicken sausages, smoked salmon sausages, veggie sausages and the like, these may be some time in making our reviews...
