“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Other Desserts „
I got these over the weekend, as I just wanted a nice dessert, and I love crème brulee. I was also curious how they would be from the supermarket as they usually have to be cooked to make the top crispy.
When I got these I actually got 3 for the price of 2, but they do cost £1.89 for 2 usually, which I thought was a good price anyway so I was really pleased that I got a third one free.
Each dessert comes in a little glass ramekin, which made me happy straight away, as you can keep them to use for cooking and all sorts of things. They each have a foil lid with a small sachet of brown sugar stuck to the top. The foil I actually found a bit difficult to remove, but with my husbands help we got it all off.
It then suggests to sprinkle the sugar on top, and put under the grill for about 2-3 minutes, I left it a bit longer as I wanted the top really crispy, but you can tell by looking at it when it's ready, as the top will go golden brown and crunchy.
I found I had to leave these to cool for a bit as the glass was really hot (obviously) but the filling was still bubbling away for a while.
After grilling then cooling, I was so excited, as it looked really good. The top was crisp and cracked really nicely when I put my spoon in, and the sugar was beautiully caramelised and sweet and really tasty. The crème brulee underneath was lovely and creamy and soft but a bit jelly like, and you could definitely taste the vanilla, but it wasn't overpowering.
The fat content is always going to be high with things like this, and at 27.9g of fat in each one, they are certainly not for people on a diet. As a treat they tasted so good, I really didn't care about the fat content.
These were absolutely gorgeous, and I would even consider serving them for friends, if they came round for dinner. The price is really reasonable, and they taste so good. Plus you get to keep the ramekins.
