Luxury Scotch Egg

Brand: Sainsbury’s Cost: £1.35 Found at: Sainsbury’s I don’t know what makes this luxury. The packaging is a little fancier, and there is a little more deep-fried ground pork around my boiled egg, but it is not as if I bit in and thought I’d won the lottery. It tastes exactly the same as a... Continue Reading →

Scotch Egg

This is an egg, wrapped in ground pork, breaded, and deep-fried. I love it. The name of the game is cholesterol and I am HERE TO WIN. There is not much seasoning, but it turns out that seasoning is not necessary: with enough pork fat and salt, there is plenty of flavor to go around.... Continue Reading →

Jumbo Sausage Roll

Brand: UK British Pork Cost: £1 Found at: Sainsbury’s   This sausage roll has all the flavor of an unseasoned, grey tube of meat wrapped in dry puff pastry. Because that is what it is.

Whoever you are @とうふtofu – you’re great, keep doing your thing.   If you had told me 10 years ago that I would be eating tofu as a dessert, I would have made drastically different life choices. What... Continue Reading →

KanPan (Can Bread)

Brand: Sanrotsu Cost: 108 yen Found at: Daiso I will not survive the apocalypse. I’m a city girl with the survival skills of an up-market Havanese dog so I am well aware that as soon as the hot water runs out, I will probably immediately fall down dead from the shock of cold water on...

Honey Flavor Peeled Roasted Chestnut

Brand: East King Company Cost: 54 yen Found at: Daiso   I bought these purely as a gag, expecting them to be horrible and therefore fodder for an amusing blog post. Unfortunately, I was not disappointed, which was disappointing. These are pretty tasty. The chestnuts have been boiled until they are the texture of cooked... Continue Reading →
