Blog: Dragon sausages

Catherine Sleep | 23 November 2006

Remember my blog entry a few weeks ago about a Wakefield fish & chip shop under investigation by environmental health officials because it smelled of, um, fish and chips?

Well, now jobsworths in Wales have decided to get in on the act. Black Mountain Smokery in Powys has been told to change the name of its Welsh Dragon Sausages, to include the word pork, in case consumers were mislead into believing the sausages contained, ahem, dragon meat.

What about toad in the hole, fairy cakes and fish fingers? I am pretty sure the ingredients of those perennial favourites include neither toad, fairy nor finger. At least, I hope they don’t. As a consumer, I’m confused and I demand protection as a matter of urgency.

Honestly!
