Salvi eh? Just like yesterday’s, this is something that’s gonna take a bit of explaining, and be fortunate you get one…as once again I found out how this tasted the hard way.
Salvi takes the “sal” from yesterday’s salmiak, i.e. the saltiness, and mixes it with “vi”, the beginning of the word…violet. Anyone from the UK can probably now get an instant picture of how this tastes…
Yes, parma violets, that’s right. Salty parma violets…lovely. For those not in the know, violet is a real love or hate taste, as far as I’m concerned it tastes like cheap perfume, I can’t understand how anyone can like this stuff.
It’s bad enough when sweet, but salty is even stranger, it’s not NEARLY as salty as yesterday’s, but it’s definitely got a tinge of salt to it, and it’s just…not good, not good at all. If you like violet as a flavour then you may find a new obsession here, but for me, this was just…bad, to put it gently.
