Found 27th Jul 2016Made hot 28th Jul 2016
With MyWaitrose card & Pick Your Own Offers pay £2.00 for two packs in-store; effectively £1 each.

These sausages are quite nice, the closest to "real" sausages I've tried. Wetherspoons pubs serve them as part of their vegetarian breakfasts. Don't confuse them with other types of Quorn sausage.

This is a great price I think. According to MySupermarket best elsewhere is three for £5 (so £1.67 each) at Tesco.

To get this deal you need a MyWaitrose card. Order one from

waitrose.com/con…tml

You then need to add the product(s) to your "Pick Your Own Offers". Do that at

waitrose.com/con…tml

Or use the iOS or Android PYO app:

Aw

" Quorn " a man made fungus that can cause health reactions in some people.

To use the phrase " the best of British Sausage " is a lie and a libel and goes against the trades description act.

You realise that slicing, mincing and putting meat into tubes made from the mucosa (lining of the intestine) is a man made process as well. When I hear 'man made', I hear planes, vacuum cleaners, antibiotics, the internet. You apparently live in this pseudo bucolic imaginary world where meat falls off cows without human involvement.

No it doesn't. You might think my counter argument is terse, but that belies the fact that your statement is so preposterous. If someone was to say the Sun is made from Fanta, I would dispute it in an equally curt manner.

Utter, utter rubbish. All of it. Sorry but you have been sorely misinformed and need to learn how to use Google.
1. It's not man made, it was discovered in nature.
2. Health reactions. No. Not true. It *can* cause allergic reactions, just like every other food in existence! And far less so than soya, shellfish, or nuts!
3. Libel against who? Pigs? Sausage doesn't always have the same meat it in, so why not another not too dissimilar ingredient..

Here here! These are just people who are out to take issue with everything.

By the way a sausage is just a type of food product and ergo describes the size, shape and texture not the contents itself. The same as a burger being made from different ingredients every time. Some people just don't realise when they're not wanted!

I'm also 99.9% sure this same user has spouted this same rubbish on other Quorn deals, where I have also corrected them. Seems either this user doesn't learn, or their only objective is to spread lies about Quorn for some personal reason.

"By the way a sausage is just a type of food product and ergo describes the size, shape and texture not the contents itself. "

Uhmm, not correct the dictionary definition says a sausage contains " meat ", not just size and shape and not "fungus "

Not really QED actually. It says "other meat". This here is something that is designed to resemble meat in look, texture, nutritional content, and taste. So the only characteristic it lacks from conventional meat is that this wasn't taken out of the body of an animal. People generally care about the four characteristics I just mentioned, not the exact location of the source. This is just another brand of sausage, for people to try and like or dislike as they please.
If it helps put your mind at ease, pretend Quorn is some type of exotic animal from the far east, lovingly slaughtered for these sausages.

And btw, when you say "fungus" you do realise mushrooms are a fungus?

Now go find something better to do than spread trolling FUD on Quorn deals..

WASHINGTON—An Arizona woman has filed a class action lawsuit accusing Quorn Foods of not disclosing on labels the fact that some people have serious allergic reactions to the main ingredient in its Quorn line of meat substitutes. That ingredient happens to be a fungus—mold, actually—discovered in the 1960s in a British dirt sample. The company grows the fungus in vats and processes it into a fibrous, proteinaceous paste. But more than a thousand people have reported to the Center for Science in the Public Interest that they have suffered adverse reactions, including nausea, violent vomiting, uncontrollable diarrhea, and even life-threatening anaphylactic reactions after eating the patties, cutlets, tenders and other products made with Quorn's fungus.

Despite what some of the manufacturer's marketing materials indicate, the fungus used in Quorn is only distantly related to mushrooms, truffles, or morels. While all are members of the fungus kingdom, Quorn is made from a less appetizing fungus (or mold) called Fusarium venenatum.

FYI, that is a FUD factory corporate shill. It is the ONLY place that makes those claims. They are paid by Quorns biggest competitor, Garden Burger. Which they advertise on their site. Now go find a remotely credible source. That site has been debunked 100 times on this site already..
