Try Me I’m New

Because my most important reader is me.
And also because some people aren’t on twitter (my end of which has gone a bit crazy since I posted this earlier today).

Which stomach-churningly combines two of the staples of South African cookery into one handy-to-braai sausage casing.
At what point did someone actually stop whatever they were doing and consider putting pap and wors into a single sausage unit? And then go and do it? And then, having examined the visually-disturbing result, decide that putting it on sale would be a good thing to do?
Have Pick n Pay lost the plot? What are they smoking in that butchery there?

Try me I’m new, it entices.

No thanks. Really. No.

    HH > I know you’re getting on a bit, but you could stop acting like you’re getting on a bit. 😉 Prices go up. Fact of life, I’m afraid.

    Ant > I don’t know? Where are you looking? At the picture? In that case, it’s PAP:

  2. Hey, life begins at 40, pip squeak… but only ‘cos your short term memory is the first thing to go! 😀

    Seriously though – have I been gone that long that three pap ‘n wors “dingies” cost nearly R20? Granted, I have no idea what the prices are like there – last time I went shopping in Pick ‘n Pay was in 2003, and I remember being relieved I was spending pounds. I pay about £2.50 for six ‘Tesco Finest’ pork ‘n chilli sausages, with not a grain of pap in sight!

  3. R49.95 a kilo is a bit steep – especially since it’s only 50% sausage.

    Oh, and Pink n Pay will put *anything* in sausage for you – just ask.
