“ Brand: Nestle / Type: Toffee „
I was lucky to pick these up for £1 in Morrisons yesterday. Reason for purchase? My sweet tooth was calling out to me. Normal price is £2.
The best way to describe the desert is that its like having the centre of a rolo as a yoghurt.
Each yoghurt pot is 70g and is a plastic pot. You get 4 of them, and they are in cased in a cardboard wrapper. The package is chocolate colour which says "Delicious milk chocolate & toffee dessert". On the back is the usual ingredients, contact numbers etc. Although one point highlighted on the package states "Made with 42% fresh milk".
Ingredients (per pot):
8.3g - Fat
0.3g - Salt
17.8g - Sugar
2.3g - Protein
Whole milk, cream, sugar, Milk Chocolate, Toffee Syrup, modified maize starch, beef gelatine, cocoa powder.
So put it all together and what do you get? Well actually one of my favourite chocolate deserts. Ok so its not a GU, but its a taste sensation. You have a layer of toffee desert and topped off with a lay of chocolate desert. To describe the consistency, the toffee layer is like a gloop if that makes sense? IE it is like a thick syrup. The chocolate layer is less thick and is like a chocolate mousse. Abit like angel delight.
Put together, and it is abit of a taste sensation. Both chocolate and the toffee compliment each other very well. Both have a strong flavour but not overpowering.
The only sad thing it that its like 3-4 spoons and the desert is gone. Maybe not worth the £2 full price you pay but at £1 for 4, its fantastic value for money.
Nestle Rolo milk chocolate and toffee dessert.
I love Rolo and always have done so since I was knee high to a grass hopper. I was pleased to see that Nestle have made a Rolo dessert which lives up to its reputation of being absolutely yummy.
The dessert is sold in a pack of two and is available in the chilled cabinet near the yoghurts and other chilled goods. Each pot weighs 70g and is just enough to give you a chocolate kick. The outer packaging is the familiar brown colour with the words ROLO in red on it. The plastic tub contains the two coloured dessert the top layer being chocolate and underneath the creamy caramel toffee dessert. They are sold on and off for £1 but they do vary in price from time to time and are available in most of the big supermarket chains.
The taste of this dessert is really nice and does taste like a Rolo although not as chewy as it is a smooth easy to swallow creamy dessert. It does taste nice and sweet and to be honest I could eat two of these without batting an eyelid. They certainly are very moreish.
I think Nestle have got it nearly right with this dessert. Not all their products live up to the high reputation of the variations of the sweets they are supposed to be copies of but with this delicious tasting dessert I think they have got it right with one big exception.
These are a fairly high calorie dessert coming out at 170 calories for those of you on the Kate Moss diet. These are just a treat and not something you would eat every day although I must say I do like them and could probably eat more than I should do. They are made with 42% fresh milk so there is calcium, protein in the dessert.They contain Beef gelatine which would make them unsuitable for some Hindu's or vegetarians. Luckily for me my wife won't eat them due to the beef gelatin which incidentally I promise you I was not aware of until I got them home which meant I got to eat both of them!
Would I buy them again?
Yes I would as they really are quite yummy and for me they are up there with all the delicious desserts. I think that Nestle should make them with vegetarian friendly gelatin so that they can be enjoyed by more people. It really does prove that you need to read the ingredient labels when you are buying prepared foods. I usually do but never even gave it a thought that it would contain something that for some would be abhorrent so for that reason and that reason alone I think it warrants losing not one but two stars!
Would I give you my last Rolo?......... Erm probably not! OK if I am honest absolutely not!
If you like Rolo's then you may be interested in buying these yoghurts for a different take on the classic chocholate. You may of seen these are expecting them to taste like Rolo's in yoghurt form. I am sorry, you may be dissapointed when I tell you that they do no taste like that. They are so much better than normal Rolo's. I like a pack of Rolo's. I think they are a very nice chocolate snack but these yoghurts have a taste that seperates them fromother chocholate yoghurts. They have two layers. A thick choclate on top and what I can only describe as amazing caramel underneath. The two different flavours complimet each other and make for an amazing treat. The only issue is you may be going back for more. I have to have the other then put them straight on my next shopping list. They truly are addiciting. The only real problem with them is that they are quite high in fat and sugar and should be treated as an ocassional treat rather than an every day yoghurt but the taste is so sweet you may struggle to find that balance.
As much as I love it, I try not to eat too much chocolate but my boyfriend is a big fan so I try and buy in some nice treats for him now and again. One of his favourites (and mine) are these rolo deserts.
These deserts come in packs of 2 and packs of 4 and are often on offer in tescos (currently half price at 89p for a pack of 4) but when they are not on offer expect to pay around £1 for a pack of 2. The deserts come in yoghurt type tubs in a cardboard sleeve and are joined to each other at the top like yoghurts. They have a foil type lid and a plastic tub and are coloured in a similar way to a rolo packet. The deserts need to be kept in the fridge and have a reasonable shelf life, the use by date is usually 3-4 weeks after you have bought them.
The nutritional information for the rolo deserts are:
The fat and calorie level is on the high side but its not too bad especially since these are a chocolate based desert, so ok for a treat I think ;)
The desert itself has a thick creamy chocolatey layer on top and below it a toffee layer. The chocolate layer is quite solid and thick while the toffee layer is a bit less thick. When I eat it I try to get both chocolate and toffee on my spoon to get a good mix of flavours and to get the real "rolo" experience. I think the desert is really tasty, it is not overly sweet which I find the rolo sweets can be a bit too sweet for my liking, it is also just the right consistency for a desert, without being too thick or too runny. The desert isn't too filling and I could probably eat a second one afterwards because they are just so yummy!
Over all I would recommend this desert to anyone with a sweet tooth as it is just yum, especially since they are now on offer, I might even stock up!
I have quite a sweet tooth and I love anything chocolaty. I was shopping at my local Costcutter store the other day when I came across these chilled deserts. I had tried the Milky Bar ones before but not the Rolo one. As there was a 'Buy One, Get TWO Free' offer on, I decided I had to get the Rolo (and the Milky Bar one and the Yorkie one). So all in all I paid around £1.20 for 6 deserts (3 packs of 2) which I think is excellent value for money.
If I was looking at the chocolate section in a shop, I would always go for something chunky like a Cunchie or Mars Bar or Maltesers or Minstrels - I would never think of going for Rolos and just think 'Urgh Rolos'. However, if someone offered me a Rolo, I would have to have one and I love the taste yet I never buy my own which is quite weird.
These deserts come in packs of two. Each little pot is 70g.
When you peel back the lid, you are greeted with a smooth chocolate kind of mousse. There is no toffee in sight - it is hiding under the bottom, so be sure to give it a good stir to mix the flavours.
The desert is well set - it is very wobbly and thick and wobbles when you touch it. The toffee is thicker than the chocolate. The desert has a lovely smooth texture which just melts in your mouth.
This desert is quite sweet and I think that for some people it would be too much as it is quite sickly sweet. It is also quite rich.
Whilst I like this desert, I do think that it has quite an artificial taste. It also has a slight 'powder-y' texture to it, which makes me think that the desert has come from powder.
The pots are quite small - it's so easy to eat on in a couple of spoonfuls. I can see why people eat the two. I like to eat mine with a teaspoon so that it lasts longer.
To me, whilst it does have a slight chocolate and toffee taste like Rolos, I do not think that this desert tastes like Rolos at all.
I think they should have added mini Rolos - kind of like what Ben and Jerry's do with their Caramel Chew Chew Ice Cream ( they add mini chocolates which are filled with caramel).
As for nutrients - this is very high in fat with 8.3g (5.6g of which is saturated) per pot. There is 170 calories per pot - quite a lot really considering how small the desert is. This shocked me; a pot will provide 20% of your recommended daily allowance of sugar (17.8g per pot). There is also 0.3g of salt per pot. So all in all, these aren't the best things to eat when you are on a diet.
I do think that these deserts come across as being quite luxurious, whilst at an affordable price.
I would recommend them, but only as an occasional treat.
Thanks for reading!

I stumble across this yoghurt by chance when my housemate brought some back from the supermarket.
Before, I had never ever been tempted by all these confectionary-turned-yoghurt desserts. I mean, how could they ever compare to the original?!
Well, in the case of the Rolo Yoghurt, I was wrong! What this yoghurt manages to do is take the creamy essence of the inside of a rolo and transform it into something even creamier and silkier in the form of a yoghurt. It has just the right consistency for it to tickle all of your taste buds as it glides down your throat.
As an experiment, I melted down some rolos to see if they tasted the same...it didnt really work out because the outside chocolate coating just congealed together! So bravo to Nestle for taking a classic chocolate and modifying the best part of it to give us some truly delicious. I would definitely rate this as a premium product. Stick it some fancy packaging and you could charge a lot more.
The size of the yoghurt does leave a lot to be desired - they came in two pot packets and I could easily smash through 4 yoghurts in one sitting! Luckily, they are often a BOGOF at the supermarket so I can really stock up!
Rolo chocolate desserts are really yummy! At 99p for a pack of two they're not too bad value, either.
Each pot is 77 grams and contains a huge 188 calories! Ofcourse these aren't the sort of treats to eat alot of, but some people may find it hard not to gobble down the pack of 2 and still want more, if you're a chocoholic and don't care about calories, then these are for you! If you're on a diet however i'd beware of them.
They basically taste like melted milk chocolate. The consistency is thick and it tastes lovely and creamy. Once you get through the first layer there's a layer at the bottom consisting of caramel sauce, which is REALLY sugary. Infact it tastes somewhat like syrup! In my opinion this makes the whole thing a tad over the top and too sweet, i can only usually eat the whole of a pot if i'm really craving something sweet.
It's definetly a sort of luxury yoghurt. It's not a mousse and it's not a fromage freis; it's a lovely, thick texture and comes in a brown pot with the rolo logo on the lid, which easily peels off. The 2 pots per pack come in a cardboard box which is easily removable but helps keep the pots sturdy during the trip home from the supermarket/keeps them neat in the fridge. The box includes calories, ingredients and has the Rolo logo on it, aswell as the Nestle logo.
Reccomended to anyone with a sweet tooth and isn't too fussed about calories. Great as a treat for children aswell.
golden nectar. complete desert euphoria. an everlasting venture into an absolute state of clarity.
I'm rather partial to a dessert, and I like them to be quite sweet. I can't really say which is my favourite since it all depends on what mood I'm in. Sometimes a nice chocolate cake with cream, sometimes a simple crème caramel, and sometimes just good old apple pie with whipped cream.
There is also the odd occasion where I just fancy nice yoghurt, and in this instance I usually plump for a Muller corner, that was until recently when I found a really nice dessert on offer in good old ASDA.
Strictly speaking Rolo dessert isn't a yoghurt its just in a small pot which makes it look like a yoghurt. Well actually there are 4 small pots all linked together forming a nice square.
Each pot contains 77g of Rolo Dessert consists of 188 calories. 77g might not seem like a lot but this dessert is quite sweet especially the caramel section which lies at the bottom part of the pot. ASDA are currently selling this package for £1.00 making each little pot only 25p
The really good thing is to get to the caramel just like the Rolo sweet you have to get past the chocolate. This chocolate is smooth and creamy and has the texture of a thick mousse. It's thick enough that should you wish you could write your name on it. Although the chocolate is also quite sweet it seems bitter in comparison to the caramel underneath.
This caramel is a nice golden brown colour and tastes delicious, but may well be too sweet for some. There is no way I could eat two of these one after the other. For the reasons indicated above I have the inclination to mix it up a bit before I start to eat it. This way the very sweet caramel gets mixed in with the not so sweet chocolate in much the same way as you might chew a normal Rolo sweet.
In doing this I find the whole experience much more enjoyable than eating one then the other and being the sweet caramel in on the bottom I have no choice but to eat the chocolate first.
All in all a very pleasing and pleasant dessert, which is well worth the 25p, nice as it is though there is no way I'd stretch to 50p's worth in one sitting since as I mentioned it can be a bit sweet. Still recommended though.
I saw this product amongst the yoghurts shelf and thought I had to try it. This does not belong next to yoghurts but next the chocolate trifles that look magnificently sickening. The packaging is very much what the product is, its a dessert based on the taste of Rolos with the chocolate surrounding the outside with the toffee in the middle. I have to say they were a bit pricey but the tubs were actually a decent size you get a good amount of the dessert in each one. Its a very smooth very creamy taste but the creamy-ness is overpowered by the flavourings of chocolate and toffee. I would like to say that it would be better if the flavours were evened out as the majority being toffee you can find it a bit sickly. Even saying that this is something you begin to start craving. i feel Rolo have captured the essence of their original product whilst making a brilliantly new one at the same time. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves sickly sweet food.
This was another of the Desserts on offer recently. I like Rolo's but wasn't sure if I would like a Rolo as a dessert. Since they were on offer for £1, the wife snapped them up. I think they normally cost £1.30, so it isn't a huge saving, but as soon as the wife sees things on offer for £1 then she will often always buy it. I suppose it is a good way to try something new as you may end up liking it, but there is always that chance that you won't.
This is in the Chiller where all the other potted desserts are.
These are also 90g tubs just like the Aero ones that i've just reviewed. Probably because they are both made by Nestle. The tubs are the same design which is dumpy and quite wide so easy enough to get your spoon in.
This was more sickly than the Aero ones. This will probably be because of the Caramel part in it. The Caramel and Mousse is mixed together in a sort of swirl so you get a taste of both bits. It is nice enough, but that bit sickly. I think that 1 pot would satisfy a sweet tooth and not the kind of thing I would and could eat all the time.
Nice enough but just not my thing. There is nicer ones out there.
I was doing my weekly shop in ASDA the other day when I came across these Rolo desserts in the yoghurt and desserts section. They were only £1 for 4 and I fancied being a bit naughty, given that my exams are over and the pressure is finally off! I popped them in my basket and carried on shopping. These desserts come in packs of 4 and they are secured in a cardboard sleeve. My flatmate had a total craving for them when I got home and so he walked down to Tesco where he ended up paying £1 for only 2, so you can see where the better deal is there. These desserts are often on special offer at ASDA and they aren't that much more expensive the rest of the time. Either way, £1 for 4 desserts is pretty reasonable, especially given that they are such a popular brand.
The worst thing you can do is look at the nutritional value of these desserts. There is a nutritional information bar on the front/top of the cardboard sleeve that provides the following information.....each 77g dessert contains:
Calories - 188, 9% of your RDA
Sugars - 21.2g, 24% of your RDA
Fat - 9.5g, 14% of your RDA
Saturates - 6.8g, 34% of your RDA
Salt - 0.2g, 3% of your RDA
As you can see from above, these desserts aren't exactly healthy! 1 tiny pot contains almost a quarter of your RDA of sugar and more than a third of your RDA of saturates - therefore not the best choice if you are on a diet. Calories wise they are also pretty heavy, but who said that delicious desserts did not contain hundreds of calories??
When you peel back the lid, the dessert looks like a chocolate dessert with a caramel sun outline in the centre (that is the only way I can describe it) It has a slightly thicker consistency than yoghurt and after my first spoonful I was in heaven. I recall having these yoghurts as a child but I did not remember them being this delicious! They are slightly on the rich side; you can taste the gorgeous, milky chocolatey flavour of the brown part of the dessert, but this is only a very thin layer on the top. Underneath, the rest of the dessert is caramel flavoured and caramel coloured to match. One pot definitely keeps you full for a couple of hours, whether it actually does it if it is the guilt I am not entirely sure, but it is absolutely delicious. They are ideal straight out of the fridge; I had one with some fresh strawberries yesterday and it was the perfect combination. They aren't too sweet, but they are pretty sickly; the most I would eat in one go is 2, but only if I was feeling really naughty! They do taste very much like Rolos, or how you would imagine their yoghurt dessert equivalent, but savour every teaspoon as the calories are insane.
This has been one of my favourite yoghurt desserts since it first came out and it really is a very delicious dessert. It's very similar to the chocolate Rolo, which is made from milk chocolate with a smooth toffee centre, so anyone who likes those is sure to like this too.
The yoghurt is made from a layer of milk chocolate on the top and a bottom layer of toffee and, as you can imagine, it is extremely rich and satisfying. The top chocolate layer is very creamy, milky and rich and the chocolate flavour really is very luxurious. The toffee layer has the same consistency as the chocolate which is like a very thick and creamy yoghurt - similar to the consistency of melted chocolate, which I always find very difficult to resist. The entire thing is very smooth and silky and it's so delicious to just lick off a spoon.
The dessert is mainly made up of chocolate because the toffee layer is very rich and too much of this will just make the whole thing far too sickly. I think the individual pots they come in are the perfect size - not too much to make it too sickly but just enough to satisfy you.
A pack of 4 individual pots costs £1 and I'm almost always tempted to buy them whenever I see them in the supermarket. They make a great dessert in a packed lunch but I prefer to enjoy them at home on the sofa where I can really appreciate the full taste of it. This really is one of those chocolate desserts that you can just sit down with and really enjoy. It actually is something that you just want to close your eyes whilst eating it and properly taste it, like you see them doing on all the chocolate adverts on TV!
This is the one dessert that I really find hard to resist and anyone with a sweet tooth must try these!
I love yoghurts and I love chocolate but they are not something I am a fan of mixing until I tried a Rolo yoghurt! I have never liked chocolate in yoghurt or mousse form as I always find them to have a horribly bitter taste but I can honestly say that every spoonful of a Rolo yoghurt is a little piece of heaven.
I purchase the 4 pack of Rolo desserts for £1 in Asda. They used to be more expensive than this and so it was much easier for me to talk myself out of getting them, but at a £1 for 4 I can not resist temptation as often as I used to!
Each pot is 77g and so pretty small which is an even better excuse to eat more than one pot in one sitting. I have never managed yet to just eat a single pot, I always take 2 out of the fridge to devour. Of course as most people are aware Rolos are chunks of toffee coated in chocolate which I have never been much of a fan of because I find them too chewy. However the Rolo dessert is complete smooth, chocolatey goodness. The dessert is in 2 layers, a toffee layer on the bottom with a thicker chocolate layer on top. The chocolate layer is of a wonderfully thick consistency and is incredibly milky and smooth, not one ounce of bitterness about it which I adore. The toffee layer is not so thick and would be very sickly by itself but tastes amazing alongside the chocolate layer. It is best to try and enjoy every mouthful because before you know it, the pot is empty and then you find yourself opening another one, not so good for the waistline.
Each pot contains 9.5 grams of fat and is 188 calories, so I really would suggest that Rolo desserts are just for a little indulgence now and again. If your like me and have to eat 2 at a time then it's even worse so I avoid buying them now as best I can. These just taste so nice that I don't have the willpower to stop at one pot and with how bad for you one pot is, it just isn't worth the 4 mouthfuls I get out of each one. Rolo desserts are perfect when you need cheering up though, then you can just pig out and eat the 4 in one go and not feel so guilty about it after!
I walked to the corner shop yesterday to get flour for pancakes and I really fancied something sweet so I picked up a pack of 2 Nestle Rolo Dessert as I always used to love Rolo's as a child. I read a review on them a couple of weeks ago and they sounded heavenly so I put them in my basket and a naughty sweet treat later that night.
Price: These are about £1 for a box of 2 desserts, which at 50p each of course is quite expensive for a chocolate mousse/ chocolate dessert type thing. However, Cadbury's chocolate desserts are 65p for one so Nestle desserts don't work out as such bad value, however the pots aren't that big and I'd prefer a pot of plain chocolate mousse after tying these.
Packaging: There's 2x77g pots of Rolo Dessert attached together and covered by a cardboard sleve. This has the Nestle logo in the top left hand corner and the big red Rolo logo at and angle across the middle with swirls of chocolate and toffee all over. There's also the usual nutritional information and best before, I did notice that the pots are only quite small and shallow.
Inside the Pot: After peeling the lid off this dessert looks really nice, the chocolate is very glossy with a big blob of toffee in the middle under the top layer of chocolate, I couldn't wait to dig in. It smells very chocolatey, but high quality chocolate not the cheap sort you often find in this sort of chocolate dessert. Like I said before the pot is quite small and it isn't full when you open it up inside, so a little disappointing for the price.
Taste: After putting in my spoon the dessert feels quite like and after putting it in my mouth I realised it was quite heavy, all that toffee sauce is abit too much. After my second mouthful I was really feeling bad for eating it, you can just taste the calories! The dessert is nice and smooth though but was just abit sickly for me and I couldn't finish the pot, however my mum had one and couldn't get enough of it so maybe it was just me.
Sat Fat: 6.8g
Obviously this containt milk and may contain nuts.
Overall: It's quite expensive for how much you get and very bad nutritional especially the sugar content. It's only good if you really don't mind indulging yourself and I personally found it abit sickly to eat the whole pot but people with a really sweet tooth would love these. The chocolate is really nice quality and the taste is really smooth however it does feel abit heavy in your mouth. Not for me but a lot of other people I know absolutely love these and if I had more of a sweet tooth I would too!
