“ Brand: Asda / Type: Other Fruits „
I do love fruit and love it as a simple dessert with ice-cream or cream or something and these priced at only 44p a can seemed a cheap way of filling my tummy up with fruit I love!
298g can with a light blue and white label around it and on the front of it there is a photograph of some mandarins and I'm told that they are Asda Mandarin Segments 'In Orange Juice' and that 1/2 a can constitutes as 1 of the recommended 5 a day. On the back of the can ingredients and storage advice is listed, the size is stated, a full nutritional rundown is given, there is a recipe suggestion given as well and contact details for Asda are also listed.
The Segments Themselves:
Most are small and perfectly formed and without the white bit of skin on them. I was impressed by them not being broken and that they were a nice bright orange colour stored in a murky looking juice with a nice smell of zesty orange to them looking plump and tasty!
Taste wise these are refreshingly fruity actually. Orange tasting with a good bite to them they are not one bit slushy or soggy although stored in juice and the juice they are stored in is pleasantly sweet in a rather natural way opposed to it being crammed full of artificial sweeteners or anything like that.
Eat these alone, decorate cakes with them or add them to recipes I love these juicy and tasty mandarin segments due to their appearance and taste and I think they offer excellent value for how many you get as well! Lovely Asda!
