Abel and Cole Organic Hotdogs
As an American, I smugly like to think of myself the resident expert on London hotdogs. When I saw Abel and Cole’s latest offering of organic hotdogs, I could not resist the taste test – what exactly would they taste like and would my children eat them?
Helen Brownings Organic Hot Dogs, stocked in Abel and Cole is not a bad option. Certainly more healthy that the dubious contents of the American brands colleagues bring over to us The States and much easier to have delivered than running to Big Apple Hot Dogs on Old Street, these are a virtuous and economical alternative.
Made with 97% British free-range pork (British pork is not intensively reared and a very healthy option to other kinds of pork) and a few spices and preservatives, in taste they fall right between a hotdog and a sausage. Slightly more salty and moreish than a sausage and slightly sweeter than a hotdog, they have an excellent flavour.
We taste tested them one evening when we all came back late from work and school all famished. Harkening back to my childhood, I decided to boil the hotdogs in water in a saucepan on the stove while I heated a tin of baked beans and sliced some carrots.
So, for just over a fiver, we had the most nutritious junk food any mum can offer her kids – delivered to our door in our weekly deliver from Abel and Cole.
