To celebrate British Sausage Week (3rd – 9th Nov),  Crombies of Edinburgh ( award winning sausage maker) set the challenge of finding Sausage Week’s Sausage Geek.

To do so we were invited to take their taste challenge; this comprises of tasting 5 different sausages and matching them up to a description (one of 25)

The winner will receive a Crombies sausage pack and Sausage Week Sausage Apron!

Excited by this box of goodies, and scared – would we be able to tell them apart – it’s just a sausage right?

We picked our five and have mailed Crombies, let see how good ( or bad!) our taste buds are.  I’ll be back for some of number 1 and 4 for me 🙂


Many thanks to Crombies Butchers for letting us try their delicious sausages.
