Devon & Chicken Roll

Have you ever wondered what is in the deli meats we consume? Sceptical about if you’re eating pig trotter, chicken feet, cows tongue or other yummy additions ? Well, I will lay it out for you! I have retrieved the ingredients for two of our favourite Aussie sandwich meats, Devon and Chicken Roll. Have you always wondered what they were made up of? I sure have.

I will leave it up to you to decide if these yummy luncheons are healthy or not…….. waiting……..have you decided yet? If not, they are full of rubbish and their ingredients are misleading. What do you mean by “58% Meat” Mr Devon? What meat is this? Oh, I see it is partially pork…… WHAT IS IN THE REST OF IT? PLEASE EXPLAIN! How about you Mr Chicken Roll…… Can you tell me what you are made up of? “Bones” you say? Huh? Bones? From where? From what animal? Chicken?

What the “expletive, profanity, expletive and profanity” is this deli meat? Dog food?

In researching these two yummy Aussie favourites I came across this great article and think it is worth you running your eyes over it ASAP!
