An alternative to a packet of cheese and onion

2 Comments

On the shelves at the Food Palace are Miki’s Crispy Greaseless SlipMouth, a popular snack imported from the Philippines. It comes in plain or hot and spicy at about 85p a pack.

Slipmouth

It is, as the packet says, greaseless and contains no transfat with no MSG or food colouring.

Sounds good to me until you find out that Slipmouth is a fish. It is also known as Sapsap which are ‘small slimy-bodied percoid fishes (genus Leiognathus)’.

MSG

If, however, you feel your Slipmouth, or indeed any of your food is short of flavouring and added chemicals, you can also add your own MSG.
