“ Brand: Ambrosia / Type: Other Desserts „
We tried this product for the first time this week which had been ordered through Sainsbury's on-line store.
The description as a 'twin pot' led Scottie and I to believe that there are two puds in the package - not so! What you get is a small amount of custard with some vague taste of rhubarb, as a compote mixed into it in one of the pots and in the other pot attached, a small amount of tasteless crumble. This product bears no relation to a true rhubarb crumble which one can make for less than the cost of this sufficient for four people. Of course, this is one the disadvantages of ordering on-line, for without physically picking up the product one can be deceived into thinking it is the real thing whereas in reality it is entirely different (happens a lot on my travels around the universe).
This is a poor product and at 68 pence is overpriced in my opinion. From Ambrosia I expected better because their regular rice puddings and custards are superb.We will not be using this product again and certainly would not recommend it for young children, in fact I wouldn't even give it to the cat.
Ambrosia, Ambrosia wherefore art thou? Beam me up Scottie!
Rubbish product with no resemblance to a proper rhubarb crumble. Contains about 4 teaspoons of custard with some weird rhubarb taste and some tasteless substance as an apology for a crumble. Grossly overpriced at 68p and gross taste.
Ambrosia has created a range of delicious puddings which combine custard with other yummy combinations.
This is Ambrosia Crumble Pud which is a portion of devon custard combined with rhubarb compote and a side of crumble to use as a topping.
Crumble puds come in a split plastic container (recycle). One end is the custard and compote and the other end is your crumble topping. The tub resembles a slight wider Dairylea Dunker tub. There is a foil label on top with the name of the product, a description, calorie information and a lovely picture of a rhubarb crumble with custard on top. There is a label going around one end of the pot with your nutritional info, ingredients, company claims, preparation guidelines and company details.
Crumble puds can be eaten hot or cold. To heat, remove the crumble part, remove the lid and pop in the microwave for 40secs stirring half-way and add your crumble and enjoy!

I picked these up a few weeks ago as I was looking for a nice alternative to yoghurts. I trust the Ambrosia brand as a regularly buy their rice and custard tin puddings. I have previously reviewed the Peach crumble.
As I have said already, the pot is similar to that of a Dairylea Dunker pot and the two separate compartments are easy to split. I like to heat this up and its very simple, just don't forget to remove the foil and split the tub!
The custard is very creamy and quite an intense yellow. It is a medium consistency and smells very vanilla like. The rhubarb compote is gentle mixed through the custard is a lovely red/purple shade. You cannot really smell the rhubarb til you taste it as I feel the custard smell overpowers it, The crumble is golden and smells sweet and biscuit like.
When I have had mine in the microwave for 30secs, I remove and breathe in the lovely vanilla scent. I mix the rhubarb compote further and then top my custard with my little pot of crumble. There is plenty of crumble to cover the custard and more. I like to mix mine into the custard which heats it up nicely and the biscuit sweetness and a little sourness of the rhubarb, compliment each other perfectly. The custard is delicious and is the same, if not slightly runnier in consistency as tinned Ambrosia custard.
The whole crumble and idea is brilliant and makes for a good dessert. It is often that if we don't have a family dessert in or if hubby is too full up ( I have a big appetite :) ) that I will eat one of these. They are quite filling and the calorie intake isn't too bad but the sugar is so treat only for me!
At 68p they are not much more expensive than your standard Muller yoghurts though I will only buy these on offer as they are a treat to me.
Thanks for reading
