Purchased from: Free Sample

A traditional looking creation from the guys at Freshers Foods, and as we know from other reviews, different scratchings from one manufacturer don't all taste the same, so here goes...

We open the bag and get one of the usual smells, a dryish smell, difficult to explain, but try them and you'll know what we mean.

They all seem very heavy and dense, not light and airy, so a good start.
We see the full range of scratching requirements, meat / fat / skin / hair, which seems to be somewhat of a full house rarity these days.
They are hard but fresh. Sometimes some scratchings are hard because they are not fresh, so these have the good version of hard. Nothing is going to cut your mouth or break your teeth, but hard none the less.

The fat is fatty tasting, which is really nice, but saying that, you wouldn't want a load of them, it would be a little too much.

Some of these scratchings have a bacony taste, I think this comes from the few meaty ones giving a little of their flavour away.

Lots of large ones, which is in my opinion the primary reason to opt for one big bag over a few small ones.

No dust at the bottom, so good shipping, just small bits with a little more salt than the rest.

A bag with MAX flavour, really max flavour.

The perfect amount of salt that was noted at the start of the bag, becomes a little too much by the end. Maybe someone should invent a split bag, top half saltier than the bottom half, perfection from start to finish.

Thanks to Freshers Foods for the free samples
