|Choice Pork Natural Savoury Garlic Pork Sausages|
After my return from Shillong, I was thinking longingly of all the pork I had consumed there, when my friend R made an extremely tempting blog post about Choice Pork Natural products (find the full range of their products here) she had sampled in Guwahati. Now, I distinctly remembered seeing them in Spencer’s, Quest and eating the Pork Sausages with Allspice (which was very nice, too), so I picked up a couple of packages of sausages from Spencer’s. I got one 150 gm. package of the Savoury Garlic Pork Sausages and a 250 gm. package of Peppy Paprika Pork Sausage. I came back home, fried them up in a bit of oil the next day till they were nice and dark, and attacked.

First off, was the Peppy Paprika sausages. In the 250 gm. pack (which cost 165/-) there are eight sausages, and I liked the fact that they have an illusion of having a casing, and the pork is packed tight within. The quality of the pork was excellent and the salt quotient was low, something that I appreciate greatly because it improves the flavour and taste of the sausage considerably, but I had expected something which would have a heftier punch of paprika, or at least which would be spicy (since, you know, paprika!), But there was no spiciness at all, and that made me feel a bit disappointed. It was all gone within a few moments, though.

On the other hand, the Savoury Garlic Pork Sausages were everything I had wanted in a good sausage – soft, juicy pork, a good hit of garlic, and when charred on all sides, rendered a smoky flavour which was exactly what I had wished for. The 150 gm. pack had five sausages, and I fried three for me and my sister at first, but had to quickly fry the remaining two, because my sister ate two out of three and wanted more.

Overall, I feel that these sausages are quite good, the quality of pork is really good, and the garlic sausages were spot on. The company also makes pork pickles and bacon, so I will be back buying more products from them. They are available at Spencer’s, Kolkata, and a few indigenous shops, like PFB Store Jadavpur, NCandy Store, New Alipore, and Frozen Foods, Lake Market.
