Finally got to sample this bad boy! #Spicebag recommended by my Thurles friends... It's delicious!! Source: unafoden

RECENTLY, THE SPICE Bag Appreciation Society on Facebook brought us news of the best 21st catering job of 2016 so far.

But  on a daily basis it provides lovingly detailed reviews from the 13,000 strong members on their Spice Bag experiences. And there are some absolute gems:

1. “Big f**ker”

The Years B.S will soon be as common as BC – in takeaway parlance:

Rainbow would have been my go to spot in the years B.S. (Before Spicebags), but not up there with the kings of bag. A nice experience overall.

2. “Hotter than Daniel O’Donnell thrusting his hips in strictly”

Christina’s assessment of the chicken was almost poetic:

Chicken: With enough chicken that would shock even Colonel Sanders himself, the plentiful poultry in its abundant glory would convert even the strictest vegan to the exquisite bliss of the bag.

And the spice?

Hotter than Daniel o Donnell thrusting his hips in strictly, the spice engulfed your taste buds and a pint of water was certainly required after. 9/10

A truly wonderful review:

If this spice box was a spice girl I could only describe it as scary spice, scarily good 9/10

3. This simple but effective review is worthy of any Michelin Guide

4. “Mountain of marvellousness”

Denise found a serious deal in Swords:

30 minutes later im still trying to get through this mountian of marvellousness.
Veg – 7/10 Green peppers and onion were al-dente. Carrots chopped a little to thin, but veg complemented the spice nice.
Ill be back

5. The epic voyage of the damned

This review took us on quite the journey:

2 young voyagers crossed the seas of hunger with crusty tenner notes
a timid man summoned us we roared “2 of your spiciest spice bags but not too spicey” whilst slamming our crusty tenners into his cupped palm he winked and said ” prawn crackers on the fucking house”.

This pair of Spice Bag journeymen eventually enjoyed theirs at home but warned – “Not all people have the same spice tolerance eat this spice bag at your own risk.”

6. “Blew the hole off me”

The spiciest spice bag that has ever spiced:

Spice 8/10 – Very spicy blew the hole off me.
required a pint of coke to cool it down.

And the chip portion was A1:

Chips 9/10 – Some crispy and some soggy, so many chips some poor farmer in Mayo has no potato’s left.


7. “Belevedre College’s own spice bag”

Even school canteens are getting in on the act:

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you on this fine afternoon, Belvedere colleges own spicbag (without the bag). To much amazement and speculation this appeared on the menu yesterday, many fellow students were in awe. But today is judgement day.

It did the job, but nothing great:

Altogether I feel dissapointed. For I was anticipating the msg soaked, flavoursome spicey rollercoaster that we all know all too well, it definitely fits its purpose for filling my stomach during the arduous hours of my leaving cert timetable.

8. “Anyone can put candles in a cake”

The review just informed us of the existence of the Spice Bag birthday cake.

The next step.

9. “Nice background aromatic touch”

Two major thumbs up:

12 inch Megabox €13.50.
10/10 Everything.
Just don’t give a fuck.

One satisfied customer.

11. “Sexiest spice bags in Dublin 15″

10/10s across the board:

Sexiest spice bags in Dublin 15 from chef in ongar. Chicken : 10/10 nice and crunchy and a good amount of it. Chips : 10/10 fluffy and spicy. Portion 10/10 big portion for spice bag worth 5 euro.
For 5 euro id recommend to any spice bag addict that lives around the ongar area

So now.

The spice bag community has spoken – and if there is one thing we have learned, it’s that the devil is in the detail.
