In a city where Portuguese sausage (Linguica) is ubiquitous, this is by far, hands down, my favorite brand. Others have a lot of other ingredients that I don't think are necessary, and they tend to shrink small after cooking (my household likes ours a little 'carmelized' when cooked) like the others tend to do.
The flavors are nice, and there isn't a lot of fat that gets cooked out.
Worth the inconvienience of having to locate it when some Safeway stores have it in stock.
I would LOVE it if other stores carried it. I checked with the local Wal-Mart, but they don't carry it, shame on them!

Dear Silva Sausage Company:
I love your sausage and have eaten it since my youth. I am organizing a Portuguese Booth at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Los Osos on September 27th. Would you like to donate the linguica or give us a discount on the lingiuica.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and God bless you. Abrigato, Carol Valine Zarek
