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.

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.

They're all shifty buggers.

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

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?

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.

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?

You can buy all the dried "bits" for miso soup from Japanese shops either as a pre-mix, which is sort of terrible; it's dehydrated tofu and wakame seaweed usually, you can buy both very cheaply (and in normal supermarkets).

>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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
