According to taste tasters from Choice, the best snag comes from Woolworths (left), where his $ 9.50 24-pack sausages beat the tough competition of Coles and Aldi (right) with 45 percent of the votes
What is the best supermarket sausage?

And according to taste tasters from Choice, the best snag comes from Woolworths, where the 24-pack of $ 9.50 sausages beat the tough competition of Coles and Aldi with 45 percent of the votes.
The experts loved the Woolworths sausages because they contained 73 percent meat, low in sodium and high in fat.
& # 39; Believe it or not, fat is something you actually want in a good sausage, & # 39; said the experts from CHOICE.
The German discount store Aldi came in second with 34 percent, while Coles won only 21 percent of the votes.
What is the best bread for your sausage sandwich?

But a good sausage is nothing without the bread that wraps around it, and in this category, taste testers from Choice find that one prevails over everyone else.
& # 39; Wonder Wholegrain White Smooth Wholegrain was at the top of our white bread reviews and scored a tasty 80 percent for food and 78 percent for taste – nutritious and delicious!, & # 39; said Choice.
If you have celiac disease, there are gluten-free options from both Coles and Aldi that both taste good and are good value for money.
How can you buy the best cooler?
No barbecue is complete without an esky or cooler – and so shared their handy tips and tricks so you don't end up with lukewarm drinks and food poisoning.
& # 39; Consider what you will use your cooler for – if you depend on keeping food and drinks cold for several days, or at extreme temperatures, spending more is an investment in food safety, & # 39; according to their experts said.
There are also different functions to watch out for.
& # 39; Look for walls and lids that do not compress easily when pressure is applied because they are filled with air earlier, & # 39; said Choice.
In the same way, check for a good seal around the lid and other openings and for smooth surfaces that do not retain dirt and food particles.
Finally, they recommend a robust and sturdy handle, a drain plug that allows you to drain melted ice from your cooler without tilting it and easy-to-open latches and lids.
Coolers can vary considerably in price – from $ 55 to around $ 1,100. So think about how much you will use it before you buy.
Choice said the two best portable budget speakers are the JBL Go (left), which costs only $ 30, and the Marley Chant Mini, which costs $ 80 (right)
Which portable speaker should I buy?
A great portable speaker will lift your barbecue endlessly.
Choice said the two best budget purchases are the JBL Go, which costs only $ 30, and the Marley Chant Mini, which costs $ 80.
Although Choice experts said the portable option is best for small balconies, they also said that a small option works on balconies if you have to cook for four to six people
Which barbecue should I buy and how much should I pay?
Finally, the barbecue itself is the key to a successful summer party.
But which type you buy really depends on how often you barbeque.
Although Choice experts said the portable option is best for small balconies and outside spaces, or for BBQ on the road, they also said that a small one works on balconies if you have to cook for four to six people.
You may want to buy a larger one if you often have a barbecue or start a family.
You can expect to pay between $ 200 and $ 800 for a portable or small option, and between $ 300 and $ 2,500 for a larger barbecue.
