Soreen Fruity Malt Loaf
Advantages: Very tasty, filling, good value
Soreen Malt Loaf is something that I have loved since childhood when my mum would occasionally purchase one and slice it up for afternoon tea and spread it with butter. I still love the taste now and only seem to remember to buy one when I spot it on offer in a prominent place in the supermarket which is what happened yesterday when I popped to my local Tesco's.
It is difficult to describe quite what malt loaf is as it is shaped like a loaf of bread, is dark brown in colour and has a very moist, squidgy consistency which is not really cake or bread like with raisins throughout.
As stated I purchased my malt loaf from Tesco where it was on special offer priced at two loafs for £1.00, or alternatively £0.75 each.
The malt loaf comes packaged in a bright yellow waxy wrapper which has images of grapes on the front to represent the raisins contained in the loaf. On the back of the wrapper you can find more detailed product information including ingredients listings, nutritional information, allergy advice and that the loaf is suitable for vegetarians. There is also a little slogan on the side of the wrapper that states 'the secret is in the squidge'.
Malt loaf claims to be low in fat and is said to increase energy levels. A 1/8 of a loaf contains the following nutritional information:
Calories - 87 Kcal
Protein - 2.1g
Carbohydrate - 18.6g
Sugars - 4.9g
Fat - 0.5g
Fibre - 1.0g
Sodium - 0.08g
Salt - 0.20g
To eat the loaf you simply slice it like you would a loaf of bread but it is very squidgy and moist so the slices do squash a little as you cut them. You can eat the malt loaf just as it is as it is moist enough but I love it with butter spread over the slice which obviously increases the fat and calorie content but is very tasty. The loaf is made with barley malt flour and extract which gives it a lovely malty taste and this combined with the plump juicy raisins spread throughout the loaf make it taste delicious and it is not overly sweet. The loaf is not very attractive to look at as it is very dark brown in colour but don't let this put you off as it tastes far better than it looks.
Overall this is a lovely unusual loaf which I tend to enjoy eating for breakfast or for a energy boosting snack either mid morning or afternoon as I do find that it seems to keep hunger at bay and provide me with a little energy boost. It is also great value for money especially if it is on offer. For anyone that has not tried it I would certainly recommend it and I will continue to purchase it when I remember.
Summary: A lovely, tasty snack.
