      Yummmmyyyy!!

      went to asda today and down the chilled isle was this smart price strawberry cheescake in a transparent pot (90g) showing all thats in it...A lovely thick layer of biscuit as a base,cream cheese and a rather generous dollop of strawberry sauce all this for 38p Brilliant!

      *Taste*
      The strawberry sauce doesnt seem to have any strawberries in it but its very gloopy looking and very sweet and strawberry tasting and has just the right amount of it.
      The cream cheese i found to be very light, and almost like a mousse which i found to be very strange in a cheescake, and the biscuit base well no faults there isnt that what we all like? its the best bit!
      I found this to be very tasty indeed and very cheap for what you get!
      I like to eat mine layer by layer so i can save the best bit till last all round a bargain price for a tasty treat!

      All the packaging can also be recycled too which is a bonus!

        Great dessert for 37p

        I often buy one of these as part of my weekly shop as a sweet treat for myself. As with all the Smart Price products the packaging isn't particularly appealing, it's just a plain see through pot with a white lid with a description of the product on in green writing.

        From the outside of the pot I can see this is made up of a layer of digestive biscuit on the bottom, a creamy centre layer and a fruity coating on top. The lid is made of foil and has a tab sticking out the side to peel it back with. I am always happy when these actually work, the amount of times I've gone to take the lids off yoghurts and alike and the tab pulls off without revealing the contents. The tab on this product works as it should and I am happy that the lid peels back without any effort.

        I eat this using a spoon as it would be pretty messy without. A normal sized teaspoon is adequate to get a reasonable amount of each element that makes up the cheesecake with every spoonful.

        The sauce on the top is supposed to be strawberry but to be honest it could be any be made of any soft red fruit. It is a little runny but holds together well. The middle layer is cream cheese; it doesn't taste of much and is a little bland on its own. The base at the bottom is made from digestive biscuits they are just the right consistency; crumbly and soft without becoming soggy.

        On its own each component isn't that appealing but the product as a whole really comes together nicely. The sharpness of the sauce is complimented perfectly by the smooth cream cheese and the base adds a nice texture that gives you something to bite into.

        If you are thinking of getting this keep an eye out for the best before date. I've found they sometimes only have one or two day date left but if you go to the tray behind it's more like a week. Although these are nice I want to know I can keep it in the fridge for a few of days before I have to eat it.

        This product can only be bought from Asda. It retails for £0.38 for a 90g tub which I think is quite reasonable considering many individual desserts are double that. The cheesecake contains 237 calories, 19.5g sugar and 4.7g of saturated fat. Although this isn't the least bit healthy, it is an occasional treat and I would imagine many similar products have similar nutritional values.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          .

          A packed lunch for me to take to work normally consists of a Sandwich, some juice and a Packet of Crisps. Highly unexciting, but i've never been that good at making somthing that exciting. I decided to make a nicer Lunch and ended up the Chilled individual Mousse/Dessert aisle in Asda. I picked this Cheesecake up for a bargain 35p. This is part of the Asda budget range Smart Price. The product is 90g and this was a good 60p cheaper than the more expensive alternative.

          This is in a plastic see through tub and you can see all the layers through the tub easily. This has a foil lid and has the colours Green and White on the lid and also on the side of the tub.

          Now to the taste of this. The Biscuit base on the bottom was quite thin, but it was nice and malty tasting and you could taste the digestive Biscuit taste in this. I had left this out the fridge for about 3 hours before I ate this, and I find that eating Cheesecake straight from the fridge means it is normally hard on the bottom, but not to worry with this being out for as long as it was. The Soft Cheese part was light and fluffy and seemed to have a slight Citrus tang to it and a Vanilla scent to it. The Strawberry bit was nice as well. It was a thick Jammy Sauce with a few Strawberry segments in it. The Strawberry part was fruity, tangy and slightly tart - but in a good way.

          This didn't come across as a budget buy, as all the ingredients tasted nice and Asda didn't seem to skimp on anything. A few more Strawberry segments wouldn't have gone amiss, but I was happy for the Dessert how it was for the price it was.

          I will buy this again and recommend a try of this!

            ***What Is It?***

            This nifty little cheesecake is part of Asda's budget range known as Smart Price. The cheesecake comes in a clear little pot and a foil lid to maintain freshness. It has been created in the standard cheesecake format- biscuit base, cream cheese filling with a strawberry sauce (including strawberry bits!) on the top.

            ***Price***
            32p!! It won't break the bank....Definitely great value for money

            ***Ingredients***

            The cheesecake contains Strawberries (19%), Water, Sugar, Medium Fat Soft Cheese (11%) (Milk), Wheat Flour, Vegetable Oil, Skimmed Milk Soft Cheese (5%) (Milk), Glucose Syrup, Dextrose, Whey Protein (from Milk), Modified Maize Starch, Stabilisers (Lactic Acid Esters of Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Carboxyl Methyl Cellulose, Xanthan Gum, Pectin, Carob Bean Gum), Demerara Sugar, Invert Sugar Syrup, Skimmed Milk Powder, Acidity Regulators (Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Lactic Acid), Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Salt, Flavouring, Colour (Anthocyanins).

            ***Nutritional Info***

            250 calories per pot,5.2g of protein,32.1g grams of carbohydrates,21.7g of sugar and 12.8g's of fat , 4.8g of which are saturated. 1.1g of fibre and 0.05g of sodium

            ***My Opinion***

            I know what you're thinking; cheap equals bad tasting but it really isn't. These little treats are delicious stand by snacks for munching on whenever you're desperate for something sweet. I love cheesecake anyway but some taste like cardboard (especially the biscuit bases!) but these are full of taste and yummy! I tend to munch on them for lunch rather than as an after-dinner dessert because the packaging makes it handy to carry to work. It then sits in my desk drawer tempting me all morning!

            Compared to other brands you would be surprised that a budget choice would be able to compete with leading names. That's why I tend to buy this one whenever I'm in Asda- it's tasty but extremely good value too!

            The cream cheese is soft and tasty with just the right amount of sugar (some cheesecakes have a sickly sweet taste but this is delicious). And the strawberry topping is just the right amount, tasting like fresh strawberries with the tiny seeds included. The base is crunchy and nothing like cardboard!

            It is slightly unhealthy (see nutritional info above) but still delicious as an occasional treat

              gorgeous cheesecake

              This lovely little cheese cake is from Asda and is a bargain at the price of 32p !! It is part of asdas budget range known as smart price....The cheesecake itself comes in a clear little pot and a foil lid to ensure its kept nice and fresh.As its part of the budget range there are no frills to it just the packaging it needs.

              The cheesecake is lovely, it has just enough strawberry and they are lovely and soft.The layer of cheese is scrummy....nice,thick & creamy leaves you wanting more.Then with both of the above mixed with a crunchy biscuit base you have a perfect little cheesecake.

              I have tried other higher priced ones and they dont come close to this one at all as even though it is low priced its still delicious.

              Here are the details on the cheesecake itself....

              The cheesecake contains Strawberries (19%), Water, Sugar, Medium Fat Soft Cheese (11%) (Milk), Wheat Flour, Vegetable Oil, Skimmed Milk Soft Cheese (5%) (Milk), Glucose Syrup, Dextrose, Whey Protein (from Milk), Modified Maize Starch, Stabilisers (Lactic Acid Esters of Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Carboxyl Methyl Cellulose, Xanthan Gum, Pectin, Carob Bean Gum), Demerara Sugar, Invert Sugar Syrup, Skimmed Milk Powder, Acidity Regulators (Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Lactic Acid), Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Salt, Flavouring, Colour (Anthocyanins).

              Now the bit that tells you just howe much naughty stuff there is in there ...but u can always ignore this ...lol

              250 calories per pot,5.2g of protein,32.1g grams of carbohydrates,21.7g of sugar and 12.8g's of fat , 4.8g of which are saturated. 1.1g of fibre and 0.05g of sodium

              I would reccommend this desert as a nice little treat every now and then.And at the price you pay you know it wont be breaking the bank....

                Really good for the price!

                Alot of asda's smart price products are really good value for money and are just as good or sometimes even better than the leading brands.
                Asda's smart price snack sized pot of strawberry cheesecake is included in these. The biscuit base is the best part but thats probably just because i do not really like cream. For 31p a tub you can't complain, at all! Especially comparing the price of the more superior brands of this product.
                The product is usually found in the yoghurts aisle with the chiled desserts, along with the adsa's smart price strawberry trifle (which is also very nice! and is 33p).
                The tub could be a little larger but then again i'm just greedy and like sweet stuff.
                The only thing i don't like about this product is the packaging, the lid is very thin foil and is so easy to puncture whilst packing and transporting home, which can lead to a whole load of mess!!!

                  A great cheap product!!

                  Smart Price Strawberry Cheesecake

                  What a lovely dessert to finish off your tea. These little treats cost only 32p each and are delicious.

                  The cheesecake comes within a clear plastic bowl type container. It has a foil lid which is sealed on and when you pull the lip the lid can be removed. This container cannot be resealed.

                  The cheesecake comes only in strawberry flavour, and for us strawberry lovers, it really is a treat. The cheesecake is 90g's and is a crunchy biscuit base topped with soft cheese and strawberry sauce..MMMMM.

                  The cheesecake contains Strawberries (19%), Water, Sugar, Medium Fat Soft Cheese (11%) (Milk), Wheat Flour, Vegetable Oil, Skimmed Milk Soft Cheese (5%) (Milk), Glucose Syrup, Dextrose, Whey Protein (from Milk), Modified Maize Starch, Stabilisers (Lactic Acid Esters of Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Carboxyl Methyl Cellulose, Xanthan Gum, Pectin, Carob Bean Gum), Demerara Sugar, Invert Sugar Syrup, Skimmed Milk Powder, Acidity Regulators (Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Lactic Acid), Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Salt, Flavouring, Colour (Anthocyanins).

                  The actual cheesecake is as good as any other I have tried. The biscuit is crunchy and as you would expect from a cheesecake, the layer of cheese is smooth and mourish and the top is a layer of soft strawberries with a smooth tangy syrup type sauce.

                  The cheesecake contains around 250 calories per pot and has around 5.2g of protein, 32.1g grams of carbohydrates, 21.7g of sugar and 12.8g's of fat , 4.8g of which are saturated. 1.1g of fibre and 0.05g of sodium. With this nutritional information I would not aim to eat these every ay but a treat once in a while would go down well.

                  Overall this product is good value for money and a lovely taste!

                  Enjoy xx

                    Try them, love them guaranteed!

                    I usually have a more expensive taste when it comes to my eating habits but I only had to try an Asda smart price strawberry cheesecake once to fall head over heels in love with them (well not quite but I do like them).

                    You get the usual smart price no frills packaging which does not do what's inside any justice whatsoever because as soon as you peel back the cheap looking green and white foil lid you are greeted with a very pleasant strawberry smell and you know it is of higher quality than its packaging.

                    Take a spoon and stab it through the three layers that make up this cheesecake, the first being a layer of strawberry sauce with tiny and I mean tiny pieces of strawberry in it (which is how I like it), the second layer being a creamy beautifully textured layer of something or other and the third being a delicious crumbly biscuit base. Scoop out a large spoonful and enjoy the delicious creamy biscuit strawberry taste.

                    A 90G tub was costing 32p which is about half the price of the brand name cheesecakes but Asda being Asda they have rolled the price back even further and are now only charging 29p for these which is a brilliant bargain for something so delicious.

                      Disadvantages

                      Terrific taste sensation

                      I've always had a soft spot for cheesecake and so when I spotted Asda's Smart Price Strawberry Cheesecake for only 38p whilst out shopping yesterday I simply had to buy one.

                      The cheesecake comes in a small snack-size pot perfect for eating as a pudding after tea, a mid-day snack or before bed. Each pot is transparent and contains 90g of cheesecake. The writing on the pot is green and tells you everything you need to know about the product. It can however be a little difficult to read. The foil lid is green and white (Asda's colours) and so is not particulalry interesting or eye-catching. The fact that the pot allows you to see the cheescake inside is however rather enticing.

                      On opening the pot the strawberry aroma is very apparent and the strawberry sauce certainly looks appetising. Taking a spoonful through all three layers I noticed that the biscuit was not too solid and crumbled under the spoon just like I like it.

                      The taste of the cheesecake actaully amazed me because for such a cheap price I wasn't expecting it to be so delicious. The strawberry layer was thick, fruity and refreshing, whilst the soft cheese layer beneath was creamy and its smooth texture contrast that of the strawberry sauce. The biscuit layer was well biscuity, not too hard but not too soft. More improtantly however is the fact that all three layers together tasty absolutly delicious.

                      Nutrition wise the product isn't as healthy as it could be. It contains:
                      238 calories
                      28.9g carboydrate
                      11.5g Fat

                      For those with allergies it also contains gluten, milk and wheat and may also conain traces of nuts and seeds.

                      Despite the product not being marvellously healthy it is certainly something I would buy again. It is extremely tasty and is the right size to fit in a bag or lunchbox. Furthermore it is relatively cheap, which is always a bonus.

                        typical cheesake at a fabulous price

                        This product is sold in a snack size pot, perfect for a treat after work or whenever you feel like indulging yourself. It contains a typical cheesecake; strawberry coulis stuff on top, thick cheese conconction in the middle, and crushed slighly moist biscuit on the bottom. This will cost you a very reasonable 32p and will weigh your shopping bag down by an extra 90g.

                        So basically, this is your bog standard cheesecake, and tastes like one. The cheese part is decently creamy, though not the best I've ever tasted- but what could i expect from a 32p cheesecake. The strawberry coulis on top I think is a bit smoother than I'd usually prefer, but again I cant complain because of the low price. As with all cheesecake, the biscuit is my favourite bit, and this product does not fail to deliver in that respect, so overall I'm quite happy with it.

                        This is a great offer for anybody looking for a cheap stomach feeler, probably not one for people who are picky about the quality of their food.

                          You might like it...I do.

                          Smartprice Strawberry Cheesecake...

                          One of those Asda 'smart-priced' things that found its way into my trolley, but unlike some this is one that I now buy on every shop.

                          Size, Packaging...

                          You can pretty much see what your getting as the 'smart price' no frills packaging consists of a transparent plastic tub with a peel off tin foil type top. Normal cheesecake really...strawberry stuff on the top creamy white stuff in the middle and then the biscuity bottom layer.

                          The round tub is about the size of your average tea mug and about 4cm high. Weight is 90g. I find it to be an ideal serving size - just right though have been known to scoff 2 in one sitting.

                          Taste...

                          On peeling off the tin foil type top - be careful as I rarely manage to peel it off all in one piece which is annoying - You will be faced with the layer of red strawberry goop on top..goop is the best way to describe the consistency of the strawberry layer...but don't get me wrong it's kinda nice strawberry tasting goop. You may even be lucky enough to find squished up bits of actual strawberry in there to, there's normally a few little bits but I have found a big squashed half-a-strawberry in one before. The taste is a bit like canned strawberries, sweet and not quite like eating the 'proper' fruit but satisfactory enough.
                          The white creamy middle layer is nice, the texture is good nice and stodgy and mixes with the rest to make a tasty mouthful. That brings me to the biscuit bit, most importantly is always crunchy and nice and not soggy. The strawberry sauce on top has room for improvement I guess states contains 19% strawberries, but for the price its surprisingly good.

                          Recommend ?

                          Good if you're the only one that likes strawberry cheesecake and don't want to buy a big one just for yourself. A satisfying little tub of stuff that is probably bad for you but tastes good ( to me) Ingredients tell me it's medium fat soft cheese...and the fat content is 12.8g but you can't really read the nutrition information untill you have eaten the cheesecake...kind of hard to read with the strawberry sauce behind it.

                          How much ? 32p
                          Wander round the chilled stuff bit in asda and head for the yoghurts as it's normally found lurking close by on the bottom refrigerated shelves somewhere, the shelf filling people tend to hide them at the bottom. You might like it...I do.

                          Suitable for vegetarians too.
