Ambrosia Layers Desserts
Advantages: Can be eaten room temp, chilled from the fridge or heated up Yummy!!
Disadvantages: Quite high in sugar so should only be eaten at a treat !
While yet again shopping in Tesco's hunting out goodies for my son who at present seems to be bed ridden with his leg in plaster, I was looking for things that I could put on a tray for him at night ( sleeps all day awake at night, so no one about to fetch him snacks!) that didn't need to be kept in a fridge.
Well I went in at first to look for some pots of Ambrosia custards and rice puddings, as I know that these keep well at room temp. So I grabbed 6 of those as they were on special 3 for £1 ( 3 of each!). Then I spotted these Ambrosia Layers, I hadn't seem these before but that was probably because I don't usually look down this section.
Now these come in pairs wrapped in a cardboard sleeve which has pictures of the rhubarb and custard on the front in a lovely pink and creamy looking package. On opening the sleeve you will find 2 quite large pots, fatter than a yoghurt pot but shorter as well. This is quite an attractive looking pot, with the words Ambrosia Layers across the top and the words "custard dessert with rhubarb compote" written underneath.
Now you will have to peel back a foil lid, which is very colourful with the usual Ambrosia farm scene making it feel all fresh and wholesome (there is something about fields and countryside that has a feel good factor to it!). Now with the lid taken off you will be met with lovely yellow thick creamy custard ( which I keep in the fridge as I love it chilled!) as good as usual, when delving down a bit further you will find hidden at the bottom a rich rhubarb sauce (or to you posh people out there Compote!!). The two together compliment each other really well and this is a nice change from the usual yoghurts ect..
I expect if you were to put this in the microwave and heat it through you would probably get a much stronger taste, but as I had mine straight from the fridge so the taste suited me fine with it not being to in your face. As with a lot of things rhubard is one of those things you either love or hate, I can take it or leave it to be honest!!
Now to microwave this pot you must remove the lid and heat for 50 seconds (650W) stirring halfway and at the end.
Each of these 160g pots contain;
The sell by date is 12/2009 which isn't particulary long, but I do wonder if this is the reason why they are being sold at the moment in Tesco's for 50p per pack instead of the usual £1!
They also do these in 5 other flavours being;
~~~Custard Dessert with Peach Compote~~~
~~~Rice Dessert with Strawberry Sauce~~~
~~~Rice Dessert with Raspberry and Blackberry Sauce~~~
~~~Custard Dessert with Chocolate Layer~~~
~~~Custard Dessert with Caramel Layer~~~
These are also artificial colours and flavours free, with no preservatives in them.
I'll give these a 4 star. ( Went down well with the patient !!)
Summary: Handy little treat that can be kept in the cupboard without needing a fridge like most desserts do!
