Sainsbury's Rudolph's Noses Tomato Flavour Snacks
Not a vast selection of crispy snacks I have to say. But what about these Rudolph's Noses?
Well, tomato is a difficult flavour. For some reason (and I report from personal experience) tomato flavour snacks don't usually taste of tomato. They taste of tomato soup. Or tomato ketchup.
The tall taste tester rather unkindly suggested these little (but considerably larger than I was expecting) red balls taste of cuppasoup; history graduate thought budget tomato ketchup. I'm going to be a bit kinder and suggest Heinz tomato soup. They have the same creamy aftertaste.
Despite these comments the reluctant taste testers had little trouble noshing down a bowlful of... er... noses.
And I must point out these are the most luminous red crispy snack I ever saw. Really quite impressive considering the colouring is all natural. Rudolph's Noses probably could light the way for Father Christmas and his reindeer in Christmas Eve. Equally impressive though, the red colour does not stain your hands.
And I do like the jolly packaging. Great fun.
