New Labels, Same Bangers!
-- posted February 07 2013 by
For our regular online customers, you will notice that our Traditional Bangers have a new face. Never fear -- the sausages are unchanged! As well as selling to a number of ENGLISH and IRISH pubs, we have also started packing our bangers both with an ENGLISH and IRISH themed label. This has come about after working with a number of retail buyers on what they feel will best perform at retail here in the U.S.
While there are geographical differences in what butchers call "Traditional Bangers" in all of the U.K., we feel these differences are more regional rather than national. What we at Balsons from Southwest England consider "Traditional" may be very different from what a butcher in Lincolnshire or Cumbria considers "Traditional", but could be very similar from what Londoners or Dubliners consider "Traditional."
If you are confused, you're in good company! A surprising number of distributors, buyers, and even pub owners are equally as confused as to what difference is (if there is one!). We hope to soon release more detailed thoughts on the matter soon with an upcoming blog entry, "English, Irish.... Whats the Skinny?" Hopefully it will be a small contribution to help clear up the matter!
