Puffs

Post by mitsy » Wed May 30, 2007 4:11 pm

I think they were called puffs, they were 10p and rammed full of these little puffy crisps, they had various flavours but none of them actually had much flavour ... but you got loads for only 10p, so we bought em!

We still have them now. Slightly savoury taste, but are really cheap, yeah?

Cheesey puffs seems to ring a bell...
? I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze.
? This place has become impossible. Nothing to eat, freezing cold and now a madman on the prowl outside with eels.

Yeah, and they do a variant on them now which taste of tomato and beef, although being a vegetarian I checked and it contains no meat... and I rather like them. They taste more like cheese and tomato to me, though...

I think they usually get vegetarian beef flavour from mushrooms, because they have the same(ish) taste chemicals in them.

Glutamic acid, an amino acid, has a naturally occurring sodium salt, monosodium glutamate (MSG), which, together with inosine monophosphate (IMP), makes meat taste of meat. Mushrooms get their meaty flavour from "proteins composed of glutamic acid" (Atkins, 1987).

Incidentally, Quorn is made from soil mould (Wikipedia).

I knew someone would say that. :roll:

You do know it occurs naturally in humans?

And soy, and mushrooms, and tomatoes, peas and beans (legumes, if you prefer), dairy products...

And Marmite. :roll:

Well, cholesterol supposedly isn't good for you, but that occurs naturally in humans. If you didn't have any you'd die. A bit like salt.
