Asda's Strawberry Trifle
Advantages: Nice blend of flavours, cheap
Disadvantages: Not so good for the body
Trifle tends to become a more frequent dessert for our family during the winter. I have no idea why, but I don't complain. Last night an Asda branded strawberry trifle was cut and dished out shortly after dinner. It had been a fair few months since I last had trifle, so I was excited for the dessert. Until my mother told me it had pieces of strawberry in it. I generally don't like much fruit and always find the idea of fruit in my cakes to be unpleasant.
The trifle was quite a large serving ( enough for a family of 5 or more ), costing around £1.50. There was 600g worth of cream, custard, jelly, sponge and strawberries contained with a plastic bowl shape. Sadly there was no sprinkles to be seen which made the trifle seem a little boring. The cream was well spread, the custard thick, the jelly wobbly, the strawberries distributed evenly and clumps of sponge that had sunk to the depths of the layered dessert. It managed to stay in tact whilst spooning into my bowl which was quite unexpected for a cheap trifle.
The strawberries in this trifle were easily located and picked out of my piece. This was great since I didn't have to pass on the trifle. There were absolutely no traces of the strawberry whilst I ate the trifle which contributed to my appreciation of the dessert. The combination of the flavours actually surprised me! Perhaps it was my tongue's abundance of the flavour, but it tasted fantastic. The cream was light and whippy and although had no sprinkles it still stood proudly upon the trifle. The custard was kind of tasteless which I tend to find with most trifles. The jelly wasn't overwhelming, it was your typical cheap jelly with a light strawberry taste. The sponges were soft, but seemed to have a kind of dry texture to them. Although individually that all sounds a little rubbish, I assure you the combination is strangely pleasing. It possibly isn't as good as the trifles you make yourself. However, it is quick and easy to serve with a price that is quite reasonable, you can't really go wrong to try it out.
Of course such a dessert has a price beyond the price on the shelves. The trifle is quite fattening and may leave you with a desire for more. This kind of dessert is possibly best served after a large meal since it is quite light on the stomach and does not seem to fill that hunger as well as other puddings.
Stats for 1/6 of the trifle:
Suitable for Vegetarians
Of which sugar 15.9g
Of which saturates 4.8g
Summary: A trifle that I intend on purchasing again sometime for an easy dessert.
