Asda Smart Price Instant Custard Mix
Me and my mate who I am staying with love to eat an awful lot of desserts! Till the point I decided to stay with her and keep her company for a bit I could live without sweet stuff but now with the weather being not very pleasant at all we feel very sorry for ourselves and love nothing more than a stodgy dessert covered in calorie laden clotted cream or rich home made custard sadly for our hips!
However sometimes you simply don't have the time and patience to make everything up from scratch and so we do get usually some cans of custard that we simply have to heat through but the other day we saw these at 7p a packet and after arguing the pros and cons of getting such a cheap product we decided to buy a couple of them and see for ourselves what they are like!
White and green squarish packet with a pot of custard shown on the front of it and I am told that it is Asda 'Smart Price' Instant Custard Mix 'Just add water' and that it contains no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat, that it is suitable for Vegetarians and the best before date is clearly displayed on there too. On the back of the packet other information listed includes ingredients, allergy advice, storage details, I'm told how to prepare the custard, a full nutritional rundown chart is displayed and contact details for Asda are given. It's a cheap looking packet but informative enough and of course simple enough to open (it simply tears lol). I appreciate the way that the inside of the packet is made from foil to make sure sure this product stays fresh too.
All you do with this is blend this fine light yellow powder with 425ml of boiling water (3/4 of a pint). It 's so simple this to mix I simply couldn't believe my peepers! Usually with this type of powder I end up with lumpy custard but all I did is give it a good beating with a fork and in about a minute I had highly sweet smelling, glossy and thick yellow custard and not a lump in sight! I was so impressed with the way this looked and hoped it would taste as good....
and to be fair to it, it really did! Smooth, creamy and very sweet (but naturally so) this really did taste milky even though I'd added none! Sure for some people this may be a little on the sweet side but me and my mate loved everything about this offering!
This has to be a store cupboard staple! At 7p for almost a pint of custard that only takes some hot water and some wrist action to beat it up, it gets top marks from me! It make be economy in price but certainly not one bit in flavour and it's worth all of it's 7 1ps!
