“ Brand: Creamfields / Type: Dairy „
This is my absolute naughtiest treat. It is a long life UHT cream that is sugar sweetened. Creamfields are one of Tescos cheap brands, like their value products but with nicer packaging. You cant tell the difference between this and other more expensive brands.
You shake the can, take the cap off, which keeps the cream fresh, and just turn upside down and press the button, the cream comes out and you can make a desert look great at a dinner party with this. Because it is a 'light' cream then you can eat with a bit less guilt.
The cream tastes very sweet and goes well with things like tarts, cake, on the top of hot chocolate. Also if you squirt it into hot chocolate then it mixes together and makes the drink very creamy tasting and smooth.
This costs 99p from Tescos not on sale, for 250g. It is suitable for vegetarians and is 91% cream and 5% sugar. You need to keep it in the fridge and it will last you about a month if you dont eat it!
This is not for those of you on a diet, 55ml contains 28 calories! Add that to a desert and you have a seriously large part of your daily allowance.
Creamfields Light Real Dairy Cream is a bit of a Tesco bargain. It's one of their 'discounter brands' which is basically a name other than Tesco Value which offers you a Tesco Value price tag. This stuff costs only £1 for a 250g can of squirty cream, which is a fair saving on the prices of similar products. A can of Anchor will set you back almost double.
This is a light cream, and I have only seen this light version available in store and online, so presumably there isn't actually a full fat version on the market right now. It's not a problem for us though, as this light version doesn't taste any different to the normal stuff. I can normally 'smell' a diet product a mile off, but there's really no diet taste to this at all.
It's really simple to use, just give the can a shake and then press down the button on top to dispense it in a squirt. There's a cap which fits snuggly on top to keep it protected in between uses, and what's really great about this cream is that it keeps fresh for ages after opening. Cream in a pot has to be eaten within a couple of days of being opened, but this stuff will keep in the fridge for up to a couple of months!
The fat and calories content don't seem all that light, but then we already knew cream was tasty but not healthy. A serving contains only 28 calories, but 2.4g of fat and 0.9g of sugars. Not exactly healthy then, but definitely tasty. It's an especially nice addition to strawberries at the moment, and it goes nicely on the side of a bit of cake when you don't want to go forking out for a pot of cream that will mostly go to waste.
Really, this cream is the ideal solution for those who aren't going to use up a whole pot of fresh cream. It isn't as nice as fresh cream, but then what squirty cream is? The real selling point of this stuff is that it's cheap and it keeps for a much longer time than real cream does. Very handy for keeping in the fridge. We started buying this recently and will now only need to buy a pot of cream for special occasions when we know it will all get used up. In between those times, this is our new cream of choice.
This is another bargain my mate found and gave me the other day. My mum plays about at changing to the Value stuff but we usually get the big brands of most things, but my mate is mega skint and she buys nearly all her shopping out of the cheapo ranges. Last week we had some Creamfields Light squirty cream, it's only 98p for a 250ml tin and that's quite a bit cheaper than whatever the top brand of squirty cream is..... or so she says, I never buy this sort of cream so don't know! lol
It squirts out nice and puffs up good, I'm not mad keen on cream anyway but this is better in a way because it's got a nice sweet fake taste. I wouldn't have known it was the light version because it is lovely and sweet, it's dead light tasting and melts in your mouth. I reckon the full calorie one would be a bit richer but this is still proper nice and I like the soft texture of it.
We had the cream on a kind of trifle with jelly and half a pot of tinned custard, it was yummy and the cream gave it a lovely texture. My mate says she has it on fruit, jam tarts and loads of stuff. While I was there she squirted some on her hot chocolate and it looked the part but I didn't fancy it myself.
This tastes so nice that I don't know why anyone would spend more on another brand. I don't know the usual prices for this sort of cream but 98p is a bargain because a tin would last quite a long time, it's so sweet you wouldn't use much each time.
Recommended..... a cheap brand of squirty cream that tastes wicked!!!
