I love mushy peas. Especially minted mushy peas. Mushy peas are very popular in England, and my mother is English, so I probably got the taste for them in my youth.
Finding good mushy peas is actually not easy – I’ve tried many different brands, and amazingly the brand I found I liked the most are Coles $mart Buy Mushy Green Peas – basically a cheap no-name brand. Here’s the simple can that houses the taste sensation that is the minted mushy pea:
So, I’ve been eating these for a while now, and I thought I’d show some images of what they are like. First, in the can – not a pleasant sight at all. And then out of the can in a bowl – much better!
Now, apparently the green food colouring used is considered bad for you – it’s always something with these health nuts! So Coles have started selling this without the food colouring. They taste the same, but check out the colour! It just isn’t the same experience:
Close your eyes and think of England!
