Ambrosia Layers Desserts
Advantages: Ambrosia custard rocks!
Disadvantages: Caramel quite a weak flavour
A couple of days ago, I was dashing into Tesco's as I really fancied a piece of salmon for lunch. It was supposed to be a speedy dash and I really was intending only to buy one item. That never works for me though, I simply don't have the strength of character and something always catches my eye and ends up in my basket. That day I was making my way past the tinned puddings etc and I felt myself slowing down as I reached the custards.
I love custard, absolutely adore the stuff, for me it is the ultimate comfort food and I love the rich creamy flavour. Ambrosia custard is my favourite, they have got it bang on with the flavour. It's thick and gloriously yellow and eating it feels fabulously indulgent. I spotted the Ambrosia Layers Desserts as on that particular day they were reduced right down to 45p for a pack of 2 pots. I believe a pack of 2 160g pots of these desserts normally costs about 94p.
Ok so that day, I enjoyed my really healthy lunch of salmon fillet and some salad and just to finish it all off in a really unhealthy way I reached for my Ambrosia Layer Dessert. I had chosen the caramel variety as I love the flavour of caramel and I thought it would go really well with the custard. As I am such a custard fan, I love it either hot of cold and these desserts can be enjoyed either way. In this instance I chose to eat it chilled straight out the fridge.
So I peeled back the lid and was greeted with the fab sight of some thick creamy yello ambrosia custard. I immediately gobbled up a couple of spoonfuls and it did taste fantastic, no sign of the the caramel yet. A couple more spoonfuls and I found the brown coloured caramel sauce, now this is where I becam a little disappointed. The flavour just didn't stand up enough for me, the caramel flavour just wasn't strong enough. There was a hint of caramel but to be honest if I had been eating it blindfold, I'm not sure my tastebuds would have detected it.
So, to sum up, I did enjoy this dessert but I do think I would have enjoyed a pot of plain custard just as much.
Summary: Not a bad offering
