The Sensational New Sausalami from Mr Trotter

Peter Morrell was at the launch to sample the three delicious flavours of this new ‘Snacking Sausage’

It’s a knockout new snack. It’s a flavour sensation. It’s potently porky and judiciously juicy. It’s Mr Trotter’s Sausalami, the easy-to-eat goody developed with the snacking habits of today’s busy consumer specifically in mind.

Mr Trotter, the British pork snack brand established by Matthew Fort, Tom Parker Bowles and the Trotter team in 2011, has launched three ‘Sausalamis’, air-dried  snacking sausages, onto the UK market. The easy-to-eat range includes ‘Original’, ‘Cracked Black Pepper’ and ‘Jalapeno Chilli’, and all are individually packed in Mr Trotter’s distinctive livery.

Comments Matthew Fort: “More and more people eat on the move, in the office, in the car, or on the train. Today’s consumers want seriously tasty snacks when and where they need them. That’s what Mr Trotter’s irresistible Sausalamis, made from 100% British pork and our special Mr Trotter seasonings, are designed for.

We believe in the superior quality of British pork, with its higher welfare standards and husbandry; and as Mr Trotter has had success in revolutionising the pork scratching market with our triple cooked Pork Crackling, we saw an opportunity to do the same for cured meat snacks as well.”

The Mr Trotter’s Original Sausalami shows off the supreme succulence of British pork, whereas Mr Trotter’s Cracked Black Pepper Sausalami is a cracking bite – perfectly porky, magnificently meaty, with just the right lingering warmth from the pepper.  And lastly, Mr Trotter’s Jalapeno Chilli Sausalami has a kind of smoky heat that lifts the flavour of the wonderful juicy pork.

Peter Morrell, Food and Drink Editor of AboutMyGeneration said “I started with the original which was deliciously porky before move up the spice scale by sampling the cracked black pepper flavour which left a pleasant tingle in the mouth. It was then time for the Jalapeno Chilli version for people who like their food hot. The chilli really accented the pork but I was pleased to have a cooling glass of Mr Trotter’s Chestnut Ale on hand.

Keep a look out for them when you are buying a snack or your ‘eat at desk’ lunch.

The Original Mr Trotter’s Great British Pork Crackling was launched in November 2011, by food writers Tom Parker Bowles and Matthew Fort, farmer Rupert Ponsonby and pork crackling specialist Graham Jebb of RayGray Snacks. Their dream was to create a new interpretation of the scratching, made from 100% British pigs, with no added MSG. Cooked by hand in small batches, Mr Trotter’s Great British Pork Crackling delivers a crisper crunch.
