FORGET your salted peanuts, pork scratchings or pickled eggs.
The pub snack of the future has arrived in Huddersfield – horsemeat jerky.
The savoury snack is on sale at award-winning pub The Grove at Springwood.
And landlord Ian Hayes is hoping his customers will be willing to sample the latest bar snack with their pint of real ale.
“All the fuss about the horsemeat scandal is because of the misleading labelling on the packets,” said Ian.
“This product is exactly what it says – it’s 100% horsemeat that has been marinated in herbs or spices before it has been dried.
“I’ve had some and it tastes lovely. I’m sure many of my customers will be willing to give it a go.”
Ian, who has run the popular pub for almost seven years, has bought up supplies of the horsemeat under the My Brittle Pony label in four different flavours.
The snack sells for £3.30 a pack.
There is horsemeat jerky flavoured with sea salt and black pepper.
