Wicked Pig - Hog Roast (Morrison’s)
It wasn’t that long ago I first discovered Fridge Raiders and thought they were a wonderful new chicken snack. Exploring the isles in Morrison’s I spotted these Wicked Pig snacks, which are a similar concept, only made of pork.
I decided to try them for the first time at work, as an afternoon snack. When I opened the bag I was a little overwhelmed by the smell! Think ridiculously strong garlic / chicken stuffing aroma filling the office. Thankfully the taste was a lot tamer (these are supposed to be the plainest variety).
The flavour was meaty with a strong but reasonable amount of herbs and garlic. The texture was soft, but inconsistent like minced meat patties. They made a rather enjoyable snack, and they got the office thumbs up. However there is quite a heavy garlic aftertaste that lingers longer than desired. Tasty, but don’t eat them just before an important meeting!
