Price: Varies by location.

Presentation: In the vac bag.

Casing: Thin – can be rubbery – will depend on cooking.

Meat/Rice Ratio: More rice than meat.

Texture: Kind of pasty but possessing a nice moist filling.

Spices: HOT!

Overall Flavor: A decent link of boudain. It has a discernable black pepper flavor and the underlying jalapeno gives flavor as well as heat. Lots of parsley and some noticeable green onion pieces throughout. The “processed” quality of the meat lacks appeal.

Comments: The best of the Texas commercial brands yet. However, the processed quality of the meat, probably necessary for shelf life/stablization, leaves a lot to be desired.
