No mate. It isn't. I have been buying pineapple chunks for 30 years. There isn't anything better than Del Monte Pineapple Chunks/Slices in Juices, unfortunately. Tesco's own brand, Lidl, Aldi... Nothing can match Del Monte. I will say that Aldi's pineapple slices or chunks are better than Lidl's - but lad... It is 10p more for a Del Monte... Don't do that to yourself.

>I have been buying pineapple chunks for 30 years.
You do know that they only put the dinged up pineapple rings in the chunks that they can't sell otherwise?

Having dealt with both fresh and canned pineapples for 30 years, I can categorically say you are lying and spreading fake news. I arrange tours for pineapple canning factories if you are interested.
In any case, if you haven't had super air aids/corona or whatever they call it now, you can literally tell which part of the pineapple you are chewing on from the way it tastes, amount of juices, softness, and how to the flesh breaks down. Please stop spreading fake news about Del Monte.

Big Pineapple is everywhere. They're worried people will go back to avocados so are doing everything in their power to stop this.

I still think the cleverest thing the pineapple lobby ever did was announce that it makes your jizz taste nice.

They're all shifty buggers.
And besides, avocado tastes disgusting without proper seasoning. I never understood what all the hipsters see in it.

Someone I used to work with once made lunch for me, which was pasta salad with mashed avocado as the base for the sauce. It was a bit odd.

They season it, I assume?

It's up there with De Beers convincing everyone that diamonds are worth something and you ought to spend three months wages on one.

My point was, what's the point of eating a fruit that tastes shit unless you mask its taste with something else.
|>>|| No. 14713
It's not masked it's combined. May as well complain about people "masking" their seasonings by putting them on food instead of just eating spoons full of salt and pepper. What's the point of eating cake if you don't eat raw egg and flour?

Just don't buy tinned avocado chunks, we all know that they only put the dinged up avocados in those.

barr red kola.jpg
I bought some Barr's Red Kola, having wanted to try it ever since I saw that Limmy Adventure Call sketch with the guy who loves "Barry's Red Cola".
It's amazing. It's so nice. It's like regular cola with a much stronger cinnamon taste. It's as good as the Limmy sketch; maybe even better.

Where did you get it from? I had some when I was on holiday in Scotland, and it was a revelation. I've gone to every supermarket and cornershop in my area, and can't find it.
|>>|| No. 14721
I found it in Farmfoods, but I don't know if they always have it or if it was just a one-off.
|>>|| No. 14722
I think I've been deluding myself that brown bread is as good as white bread. I usually buy a seeded loaf but the online delivery from Asda substituted it for Warburtons white farmhouse bread and it's just so much nicer, particularly for toast.

I found some really great tasting miso powder but it's not the same without the random bits of thick dehydrated seaweed, that weird biscuit thing it sometimes comes in and the odd little bread shapes floating in it. Is there any way to get just those so I can add them to the soup?

I just looked and I can't find any trace of the thing I'm talking about ever having existed, never mind.

It looks nothing like this.jpg
I mean it's nice and tastes like a patty but you're pretty much eating a normal burger with Big Mac levels of salad. For £1 more I could lived life in the fast-lane with a double pounder with cheese.

>This Japanese street food dish combines sushi rice, which is packed with sriracha pulled chicken or sauteed mushrooms for the veggies, coated in Doritos® Chilli Heatwave. It’s then served with the ever-popular katsu curry sauce.
Not tried it, but this sounds hideous.
|>>|| No. 14734
It's probably fine, it's just onigiri with a spicy, crunchy coating. Crunchy (sometimes breaded/coated) onigri already exists in the form of yaki onigri, and it's also basically just arancini with chilli dust on it. The only part that makes it sound grotesque is that there's an american snack food involved, which is entirely understandably off-putting.

I bought this because I didn't pay full attention to what I was doing. I assumed "chip happens" referred to chocolate chips rather than what our septic friends call crisps.
This explains why it was reduced to 99p while all all the other tubs in Farmfoods were £1.99. Imagine biting into chocolate ice cream which has been mixed together with what's essentially mush that tastes like very salty Pringles.

Very ironic to have written "nailed it!" all over what sounds like the worst thing B&J's has ever produced.
Did you eat it all anyway? I would have.
|>>|| No. 14739
Right, you've stumbled upon something here.
S&V Pringles go great with yoghurt, and I can only assume this extends to iced cream.
You also can't go wrong cracking up a chocolate digestive into a yoghurt pot. It works with all manner of fruits.
It's then next salted caramel, be a trendsetter.
|>>|| No. 14740
The sheer brass neck on you to talk about salt and vinegar pringles and chocolate digestives as if they're both equally viable things to put in a yoghurt, my god.
|>>|| No. 14741
On the topic of salt and vinegar Pringles, does anyone else find that the flavouring they use is one of the most acrid kind of S&V flavouring on the market? It's almost on par with Discos.
Oof. Now those are punchy, it's less like a food flavouring and more like just like putting a corrosive chemical directly on your tongue. How do they manage it?
I love salt and vinegar me. I can't get enough when it's reyt strong, like having really spicy food only without the fuss of shitting yourself all day in the morning.
|>>|| No. 14743
I really like those actually - we use them a lot. They like a good soak in soy, chilli and garlic before stir frying, then they taste great.
|>>|| No. 14744
I had it with soy, chilli, veg and ribbon noodles. I think the Vivera kebab style pieces go better in a stir fry.
|>>|| No. 14745
> Vivera kebab style pieces
Those are really good too; for a quick stir fry, either one is my go-to choice now. It's even more amazing that you can now buy The Vegetarian Butcher at places like your local Coop.
Have you tried any of the other Vegetarian Butcher stuff? I gave the burgers a go, but they're not anywhere near as good as Beyond Meat. My kids like the "little willies" too, but I've had better sausages. Just nice to have a choice.
|>>|| No. 14747
I've reviewed them both earlier in the thread, >>13421 and >>13875, which is why I expected better for their chicken pieces. I am quite partial to Little Willies but I'll only get them if they're on offer, especially at Co-op because I can get 10% off there. At the minute if I'm buying sausages it'll be Cauldron's Lincolnshire ones.

Nothing like a bit of TVP DARK TEXTURED SOYA PROTEIN MINCE to warm the soul on a winters eve.

I get the point but it's hardly any less comforting than ground, extruded bovine corpses, is it?
