When Tesco's sent through the press release for their latest bakery product, I did a bit of a double take. I know they're called Weirdoughs but even so, I wasn't expecting something quite this unusual ! They've taken doughnuts and associated them with two flavours more usually associated with crisps - salt & vinegar and cheese & onion. It couldn't work, could it ?! Well, they sent me through some vouchers to find out !
They do look just like mini ring doughnuts so if you want to play a trick on someone, you could put them on a plate and watch their face when they get a mouthful of savoury flavour when they're expecting sweet sugar ! I was very dubious but they're actually very nice - they have the texture of doughnuts but they taste like crisps and it works surprisingly well, although I must admit I'd rather have a sugar or apple one, given the choice ! The kids loved them and their mini-size makes them ideal for lunchboxes or picnics.
You can grab a bag of 10 on the bakery aisle for £1 so they won't break the bank and they're bang on trend with hybrid flavours being all the rage this year. If you're rubbing your hands with glee at this sweet/salty mash-up, you might like to try out my Bacon & Choc Chip Cookies - slightly weird but strangely moreish !
