“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Mousse „
Bought these numerous times over the past few months. They make an excellent dessert and are in my opinion much better value than the aero ones tesco also sell. Unfortunately tesco dont seem to be very good at stocking them in many stores - Out of my four local stores only one the "Metro" store actually stocks them!They have a nice white chocolate flavour and the standard texture as with tescos other mousse products (Milk Choc, Lemon, Strawberry etc) They arent as strong as something like say the milkybar ones which I personally find a bit sweet for my tastes!Overall if you like white chocolate and can find a store that stocks them, try them!
I often eat yoghurt and mousse desserts and enjoy looking for new flavours. These White Chocolate Mousse desserts are produced by Tesco and cost 85p for a multipack. I've tried Tesco's milk chocolate mousse desserts and really liked them, so I thought I would like these even better as white chocolate is my favourite.
The desserts come in a little plastic pots sealed with a peel-back lid. They come in a multi-pack of 6, and each pot weighs 62.5g. The design is plain and simple but they look appetising.
The mousse is a pale creamy white colour and look nice and smooth with a few bubbles here and there. The texture is different to most ordinary mousse desserts and I thought it felt gloopy and a bit jelly like. The mousse was a bit heavy and sticky instead of being light and fluffy, and I wasn't at all keen on the way it felt in my mouth.
They taste sweet and creamy but the flavour is a bit vague and doesn't come through very strongly. The sweetness is not very natural tasting, as I suppose you would expect, and I don't think that the mousse works with this white chocolate flavouring.
I really didn't enjoy the flavour or texture of the mousse, it wasn't quite right and didn't taste as I was expecting it to. I did give them a second chance as the rest of the multipack was still sat there in my fridge and I didn't want to waste them. I haven't come around to the taste or nasty texture yet, and very kindly offered the rest to my other half who will probably just devour them all in one go!
Each pot of mousse contains 115 calories and quite a high sugar and fat content. When eaten in moderation as part of a balanced diet this should be fine, and nice as a small treat if you like the taste.
I wasn't impressed by the White Chocolate Mousse by Tesco, but I would highly recommend their Strawberry and Chocolate flavour mousse desserts instead.
