These are the ones with enough fat and calories to cover the whole days allowance for a bloke aren't they? Hay, I'm not one for necessarily calorie counting, but there is a reason this country is in the state it's in health wise
Foot long?! Waist of 12 inches. My misses is happy with 3
I dread to think what actually goes in these things.
Can get a pack of bratwurst for that price

Nice bangers. Heat
They're in a two pack.
Any idea if they are proper sausages or just hot dog type? If they are proper ones are they any good?
Yes! My kids love these they should have them in store all year round x

It’s not mechanically recovered meat so no different than eating any other part of an animal.

Tried them last time the store had them, just normal sausages but longer. Ok for the price though...
Was excited to try these at my last BBQ... Unfortunately found them awfully bland

This 2 pack variant, is the hot dog frankfurter times square new york style one, 100% British pork meat, not the ekky thump push some real meat in the grinder and thin it out, not British sausage variants

+1 on that, sliced up on a Pizza, in a stew, with a Jacket, grilled, etc etc, just a Fab value for money multi meal choice and very tasty on the BBQ as well

Whether it's mechanically recovered or not is irrelevant. It's the "any other part of the animal", but not in the way you mean, that bothers me.

thats the problem with people now a days, we used to eat every part of the animal nothing got wasted, all of it can be eaten. Draw the line on mechanically recovered though.

That's piffle unless you're going back to the stone age. Some people may have eaten every bit of the animal, but not all. There was always bits and bobs that wouldn't have found their way into the human food chain.
The problem now is you don't know what your getting. the terms steak, beef, meat cover just about anything.
Just got some. Why dont they have rolls to go with them though???

piffle and stone age, last 40 years is not stone age in any way, if you ever worked in the meat trade before you would know there are now control over the food chain than ever before, even more after recent scandals, Years gone by your local butcher would and could add anything to sausage, today thats not the case, The big companies used to put an animal in one end of the factory and the sausages and a few pieces came out the other. Now though you know which ones produce that way and the quality producers will only use top cuts of meat, though you may or may not be able to say that about these one.

The bits and bobs you mention are eaten most probably still available for sale in traditional butchers who do their own butchery, anything else wouldnt get out of the abattoir.

Can agree on something, you dont know what you are buying in terms of steak thats for sure, most other meat if you know what you are looking for you can tell what it is. Sadly though not everyone does.
There's two versions of these Aldi foot long ones, I think these are the 'normal' ones that as someone pointed out are just like sausages. The best ones are called "Alabama" or "Southern Style" or something like that.

Pro-Tip: Fry or grill them, they look nicer and the rubbery skin comes off.
mmmm mechanically recovered turkey
these are actually really good! they have a high % of pork, can't remember how much, but I won't buy anything less that 90%

Sausages are already a carcinogen. How much harm can adding horse do.
Bun it.
Then top with chili con carne, chopped raw onion, shredded Double Gloucester, and a squiggle of French's mustard.
If you like some heat, add a few jalapenos.

Devour/repeat.

The long part baked baguettes are great for these. About 50p for 2. Just make sure you don't bake them until they're crispy (unless you like um like that obviously!)

I got these. Wouldve preferred softer rolls

Nice bangers. Heat


Bangers are not Sausages, bangers and mash is not sausage and mash. Most people aren't aware of this but if you go out for something to eat and "bangers" and mash is on the menu, I would suggest buying something different.

Eating alot of food doesn't make you fat, I have proof, check Matt Stonie on YouTube 20,000 calories (its a joke btw)

You're making the mistake assuming it's fat that's the problem. It's the carbs that have caused the health epidemic in the UK. Look at people's trolleys in the supermarket. 90% of it is carb based or carbs sneaked into it!

Everything is carcinogen.

You seem to be saying that there's somebody constantly watching production and checking the final product. There have been enough food scandals in the past few years (I won't mention the horse meat or the dodgy chicken - oops, I just did) to prove how wrong that view is.
Meh. I've seen bigger.

Carbs are through the roof on this one too
This is basically a heart attack in a twin pack!

That’s why I said even after recent scandals. Will leave it there though no point trying to educate someone on the food manufacturing process who has never seen it first hand and only believes what they see in the press.

And no point trying to have a reasoned discussion with a know-it-all. Are you saying you have knowledge/oversight of the whole food manufacturing industry? Are you denying the horsemeat and dodgy chicken existed? Or were they just "fake news"?

There are different groupings and sausages are group one. But as you say we are all going to die so catch those flame deer and .
