Tesco Value Creme Caramel
Disadvantages: bad taste, high in sugar
The Tesco Cream Caramel is one of the very few Value products that disappointed me; there's not much taste and if any you can taste artificial flavourings. It's a shame; I really like cream caramel but never find the time to bake one myself.
They actually do look like good cream caramel is supposed to look like with a small layer of dark brown caramel sauce on the bottom and the light cream on top. What I instantly saw was that the cream is very wobbly; normally it should be quite hard.
I expected a nice caramel and vanilla smell when I opened the pack but I was rather disappointed from the lightly sweet smell, there was no caramel aroma at all.
The taste couldn't convince me either; well it actually didn't taste of much at all. The cream was rather neutral in taste and the caramel sauce was so watered down that no caramel aroma was left; it actually tasted quite unpleasantly of sweetener and I ended up eating the cream and avoiding the sauce.
The consistency is almost worst than the actual taste; the sauce is so watery that it doesn't really deserve the name 'sauce' and the cream is like very soft rubber; you could almost drink the whole thing.
The caramel cream is suitable for Vegitariens but not for Vegans as egg and cream was used. Each pack contains an astonishing 105 kcal and is of course very high in sugar.
- 19.1g of sugar - 21% of your GDA
- 0.9g of fat - 1%
- 0.6g saturates - 3%
A pack of 4 single pots will cost you around 40pence which is of course quite cheap but still, it's not really worth the price. They caramel sauce is just too watery and tastes very artificial, the cream doesn't taste of much at all and all in all it's just not the most pleasant experience.
If you are a real fan of cream caramel you are not going to like this Value product, but if you are just looking for a quick cheap snack you can give it a try.
For me it's unfortunately only 04 out of 10
