With April Fools’ being known as the only day in the year consisting of practical jokes and hoaxes, Wall’s Pastry exposed its joker side this year with an all ‘new’ product range leaving the nation in hysterics.
Taking centre stage in publications on the day, Wall’s Pastry certainly tricked the nation by inventing some of the most bizarre savoury snacks you could imagine! Perfect for those that were looking for a little laughter, Wall’s Pastry turned some of its favourite sweet treats into savoury staples.
But are they here to stay?
Rise and shine, it’s sausage roll time
It might seem surreal, but this cereal was every sausage roll lover’s dream dish! Based on Wall’s Pastry’s 16pk Mini Pork Sausage Rolls, breakfast would never be the same again, with a sausage-roll-flavoured cereal to tickle your taste buds.
Described as “the perfect way to start your day”, breakfast is a meal not to be missed… and we wanted you to feast your eyes on a big bowl of pastry pieces that packs a punch!
Add a dash of milk and there you have it, a hearty helping of sausage inspired goodness to start off your day (the right way).
Smooth as you like
Another great April Fools’ ‘Off the Wall’s’ product, Wall’s Pastry teased the nation with its sweet yet savoury sausage roll smoothie. Based on its Jumbo Sausage Roll, meat lovers could join the liquid revolution with this innovative beverage.
Making mealtimes even more convenient by combining the iconic sausage roll with one of the latest food fads, this is a product that was sure to turn heads.
Got a savoury tooth?
One more product that seemed the most ‘Off the Wall’s’ out of them all, is the Scotch-egg flavoured custard. Designed from the classic Scotch Egg and turned into a universally loved dessert sauce, this lip-licking eggy-centered inspired treat was sure to raise the eyebrows of any snack-snaffling food lover.
We’re not yolking! From finishing a family dinner to satisfying your savoury cravings even further, this invention was flavoured with the hearty notes of sausage meat and eggy deliciousness. This was the perfect accompaniment to pour over a hot apple crumble or a savoury meat pie.
