Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Pork Puffs (Ocado) By @SpectreUK

Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Pork Puffs

I've written about three previous flavours of The Curators Pork Puffs. I've tried the Sweet Chilli flavour, the Smoky Bacon Flavour and also the Original flavour. All of which I love and have in the house regularly. My favourite being the Original flavour for their pure saltiness, and been as though they go so well with any lunch I choose to accompany it with. The Curators Pork Puffs have an excellent combination of low calories and high protein, which is great for helping to fix my muscles after long workouts, as well as to keep my weight down while I do it.

These Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Pork Puffs sound like they should also become a firm favourite. I generally save the spicy Sweet Chilli flavours to go with tuna and mayonnaise sandwiches, the Smoky Bacon to go with an afternoon beer, and the Original flavour to go in between jam on toast and boiled eggs lunches. Jam on toast and boiled eggs is the only meal I can think of where I eat the sweet before the savoury. I don't know why I do that, it just seems to be one of those things I prefer.

On opening the packet of this Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Pork Puffs I received a good smell of salty pork puffs with a little vinegar. I used to eat Pork Scratchings with apple sauce all the time when my teeth were a bit stronger. I reckoned cider vinegar should go with the sea salt and pork puffs very well indeed.

These pork puffs have the same lovely crunchiness as the other flavours. The cider vinegar came to the fore straight away. I liked the cider part of the taste that I could pick out, but for some reason the vinegar sourness threw me a little. This sour flavour merged into a saltiness complementing the crunchy pork puffs, but there was then that vinegar sourness into the aftertaste. I finished the whole bag, of course, but the flavour combinations weren't doing it for me.

Don't get me wrong, I did like these Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Pork Puffs, and I have some more in the house with the other flavours, but I reckon with the vinegar sourness this is unfortunately my least favourite flavour. I'll certainly eat the other packets, but the Original flavour is still my absolute favourite.
