“ Brand: Baileys / Type: Dairy „
Well this is yet another product that I discovered thanks to a Dooyoo review. I'm not a big drinker but Baileys is one the the ones I will drink. I found this Baileys extra thick cream in my local Coop store and better still it was on offer at £1.10 instead of the normal price of approx £1.75 which most supermarkets seem to stock it at.
It comes in a small plastic pot as pictured above and has the Baileys logo and colorings to it. You remove the clear plastic lid which can be used to reseal it, and peel the top off like a yogurt has. As soon as it is open you get hit by the strong smell of Baileys. It is really thick and if you then mix it up it goes a bit more looser, it's just where the top if thicker then the rest. The smell is strong just as the taste is strong. To be honest I was quite surprised at how strong it was as thought it would be just a hint of Baileys. On the tub it doesn't say how much alcohol content but have researched and found it is 6%. I'm sure if you managed a whole tub you'd be over the drink drive limit.
A previous reviewer commented that she had put some into her hot chocolate drink, I hadn't remembered that but found it nice with some warmed chocolate fudge cake. There aren't many things it would go with really, maybe strawberries would go well but it isn't the sort of cream to have with tinned fruit.
I can't work out the calorie value as the tub is 180ml and the calories are 431 per 100g, work it out if you must.
On the whole I would buy this again and try with strawberries and in some hot choc. It kept well in the fridge for over a week so no need to rush to eat it all in a day or two.
This Baileys Extra Thick Cream is seriously delicious and if you like Baileys then I'm not sure that you could fail to completely love this! Like all cream it is one of those things which is naughty but nice....and you most seriously shouldn't consume it if you are watching your weight - but if you want something yummy then I can't recommend it highly enough. I bought 180 mls of this from Tesco's for £1.73, but at the moment you can buy two pots for the reduced price of £3.
The cream, as advertised, is indeep very thick and not unlike the consistency of a mixture of double cream and clotted cream - it is pourable, but only just.
When you take off the pot lid, it looks, unsurprisingly like thick cream. I can smell the unmistakeable smell of Bailey's immediately, although this smell is not overpowering and smells very similar to the Haagan Das Bailey's Ice Cream. Its texture is very smooth and silky and did, as another reviewer claimed, tasted like a whipped up version of Bailey's. Some people may find the taste of the Baileys in the cream a little over-powering because it is strong tasting and for this reason it is difficult to find something that this naturally compliments because its taste tends to mask most other foods. However, I tend to like pouring in on top of ice cream or using it in hot chocolate or Horlicks.
It is incredibly calorific with one tablespoon containing 65 kcals and almost 4g of saturated fats.
If you like top indulge yourself once in a while then you need look no further than Baileys Extra Thick Cream. Anybody who like Baileys will LOVE this.
It is manufactured by Dairycrest and sold alongside conventional creams in the chiller aisle. I bought 180mls for £1.50 from Sainsburys. This is an introductory offer. When compared to the price of other creams it does appear quite expensive, however the taste more than makes up for the cost!
The cream, as stated in the title is extra thick. There is a slight hint of a Baileys aroma on opening and one would expect from this a very mild tasting cream.
This is certainly not the case.
The cream tastes heavily flavoured with Baileys, it is almost like eating a whisked up version of the drink Baileys, if it were not for the colour you could almost forget you are eating cream. Strangely enough, Baileys content only makes up 6% of the product. When left in the fridge, the cream separates a little leaving a brownish Baileys coloured liquid on top.
100mls contains a whopping 431kcals and 38.6g of fat (of which saturates 24.2g), so I would definitely regard this as an occasional treat.
I does taste absolutely fantastic and it did seem a shame to add it to my mince pies!
It is so rich and tasty that not too much is required to give a simple dessert a little kick. I'm yet to try it in a black coffee Yum!).
Baileys cream comes highly recommended - It's a delicious tonguefest and if you are anything like me, you won't be ashamed to lick the remnants from the bowl!!!
