When we first heard about these new products coming into Sainsburys, we definitely had a raised eyebrow or two. Shroomdogs? What kind of a name is that? It sounds ridiculous, and that caused a few worries that the product itself was going to be a laughing stock.
And then we ate them.
Shroomdogs, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. First, there is your texture and appearance, so like the real sausage and yet just different enough as to satisfy. Then there is your crunchy exterior when fried, turned a delightful brown and crispy from the heat. Next let us examine your interior: mushroom, through and through, with delicious onion flavourings to boot.
This is a tube of mushroom, ladies and gentlemen. And I can’t stop eating it.
I don’t know if I will ever bother eating a different type of sausage. So long as there are shroomdogs, they (and the Quorn hot dog sausages for when you need a slimmer alternative) will be my go-to. I am in love, and love, thy name is shroomdog.
Why go on any further? Trust me: go buy a pack of shroomdogs, and eat them. You can come back and thank me later.
