Snagga's Healthy Sausages, by Obelix

Snagga's food truck specialises in all things snags.  No surprises there. Their selection includes all hooven creatures of God, think pork, beef, lamb sausages as well as a chicken snag and a vegetarian option made of beans.  Whilst I would have normally picked a vegetarian option, I was a bit apprehensive about how appetising it would be.  So I went with the hot dog with the clawed feet, the chicken.

My little chicken snag rested on a brioche roll and nestled in a side serve of chips.  My first impression after seizing a huge bite was "yikes, this hot dog is sweet!"   Whilst the menu described it as meat marinaded with honey, it was still quite a shock as I expected the sweetness to be balanced with a bit of savouriness.  The brioche bun was sweet.  The condiment was sweet.  And what was a bit disconcerting, the sausage itself was sweet.  The chicken snag had bits of nut (cashew?) within so from that aspect I was pleased it was a healthier snag than one made of pure animal by-products but I couldn't get pass the sweetness.  Maybe I was comparing it too much to the gold standard tuck shop hot dog of my childhood: a pink frankfurt of dubious meat origins on a crusty white bread roll with a squirt of tomato sauce.

The chips were a bit underdone.  Not quite at the crisp stage so they felt oil sodden.

I love the concept of a healthier snag but I found my snag a bit too sweet for my palate.
