I see that the bastion of the British breakfast condiments (can I say condiments before the watershed?), namely HP Sauce, has succumbed to Nanny's anti salt zealotry.
HP, who have been manufacturing the tangy brown sauce (used by gazillions of Brits to enhance their breakfast fry ups every morning) since 1899, have adjusted their recipe to reduce the salt content.
Let's face it, people will simply add more salt to their food via their salt pot (unless Nanny has bunged up the holes!).
Anyhoo, by all accounts the new flavour knocks your head off and is not well liked by HP aficionados; Marco Pierre White has branded the new taste "disgusting".
It seems that this could quite possibly be a British version of the "new Coke" debacle, which is ironic given that the owners of HP are Heinz (American) and should have learned the lesson of never tamper with your brand from their compatriots at Coke.
I suggest that you tell HP what you think via their Faecesbook page.
