“Firecracker” Red Hot Pickled Sausage by ConAgra Foods
I’m still not sure what possessed me to buy this. I guess I’m a sucker for “2 for $1” deals. I expected this to be seriously disgusting, and I’m sorry to say that I wasn’t entirely wrong. The brine is disturbingly pink, as is the thin, flesh colored sausage contained within. You have to be careful where you open it so you don’t spill the meat scented brine all over yourself. I probably would have been happier if it was actually as spicy as advertised, but it was really just mostly vinegary. To call this product a “sausage” is an insult to sausages everywhere. The flavor is more akin to that of a hot dog dusted with vinegar. It’s a pretty strong vinegar as well, so your throat tightens up when you attempt to swallow. Or maybe my body was rejecting the “Mechanically separated chicken”.Ingredients: Mechanically separated chicken, Pork, Salt…the list goes on. The ingredient list was longer than the sausage.
