|Cajun Hollar Boudin|
|OVERALL RATING: C-|
Price: .2.69 for 12oz.
Presentation: Shrink wrapped in an industrial strength capacity. Found in the meat/sausage case.
Casing: Thin and almost unbreakable. Reminds one of Tyvek.
Rice/Meat Ratio: More rice than meat. It is marketed as a "rice, pork, and pork liver product".
Texture: Gluey with bits of undercooked rice, lots of parsley, and small bits of seemingly processed meat.
Overall Taste: Not very good. A strong parsley flavor is present throughout the link. The tiny bits of pork are reminiscent of what one would fined in canned/pressed meat. It is hard to describe: Not offensive, but not especially tasty.
Comments: The CORPORATION that makes this has a whole line of "established brands." Perhaps they ventured into unknown or unfamiliar territory when it comes to boudin. A Cajun stuck between Houston and San Antonio, somewhere around Flatonia, might appreciate this link.
