Over the past few months our sausage quality team have been searching for this years Bangers & Cash winning sausage. We asked Asda customers to send in their ideas for a new sausage flavour to celebrate the Olympics and Queen’s Jubilee.
We received over seven hundred entries! Our sausage quality team the shortlisted the top five entries. These five flavours were presented to a testing panel of sausage lovers.
It was then voted that the winning sausage is Great British Pork and Beef BBQ Sausage as entered by Julia Newton from Aberdare.
The panel particularly liked the idea of the product being sourced and produced in the UK, as well as being ideal for the BBQ this summer.
Last week the Asda sausage team went to present Julia with her prize of £1000 Asda vouchers. Asda also donated £1500 worth of cookery equipment to Oakland’s Primary School, Aberdare which was nominated by Julia to receive the prize.
The Asda team gave an assembly to the children about healthy eating, showed how sausages are made and then served Extra Special Chipolatas for break time.
The school were joined by the Mayor or Aberdare, Sylvia Jones as well as Mr Sausage, who were both welcomed warmly by Oaklands Primary School.
I would like to thank all this years entries, and congratulate Julia! You will be able to purchase Julia’s sausage from Asda Butchers Selection Counters from the end of April.
