Tesco Woodland Fruit Strudel
Disadvantages: None at all
Before my boyfriend headed home this morning (we have a long distance relationship for now!) I decided to pull out all of the stops and make us a nice meal. For years (we've dated on and off for many!) he has been the most fussy eater I have ever met however since we got back together a few months ago, and me having an eating disorder he has really changed his food habits and tries and rather appreciates most things edible wise now!
So I made a curry with nan bread and a load of bits and pieces for us and for my flatmate (lexicrazy on here lol) and for dessert I bought this earlier on with him in tow in Tesco along with some cream for afters as I usually love strudels!
The strudel comes in a dark purple oblong box to which the front and back of it in appearance are the same and on those sides we are told that it is Tesco Woodland Fruit Strudel 'Chunks of delicious apples and juicy berries wrapped in a light puff pastry and sprinkled with sugar' and that it contains no artificial preservatives. flavours or colours and that it oven cooks in 40 minutes (ish), that it suitable for Vegetarians, that it weighs 600g and should serve 6 people and there is really handy at a glance nutritional chart shown too. On one side of the box other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice, there is a full nutritional chart shown, cooking instructions are given (cook from frozen in the oven for about 35-40 minutes) and contact details for Tesco are listed. Its a nice enough box and of course as informative as it needs to be.
Well this came in a rather long box and I was initially surprised by how long and thick it was really! Easy to cook, this came out of my oven smelling of sweet fruits and pastry and it had gone a golden colour and had slashes to the top of it so the fruit and juice oozed just a little and the ends of the strudel were slightly sealed but the fruit mix had weeped and toughened around those ages slightly.
What you get with this is, is a lovely soft puff pastry, not too flaky but really buttery without being greasy and it is nicely sweetened on the outside of it with real natural white sugar which is granulated. Inside you get a rather lumpy red mix of chunks of apples mixed with blueberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants. The fruits still have a few seeds in them and the recurrants inparticular really do taste sharp and sour which is a great contrast with the majority of soft and slightly mushy (in some parts) of the apples. The blackberries in this are really fresh and natural tasting and add a lovely sweetness too and we all loved this pudding loads in my household. The quality of this is excellent, the portions (this gives those by the way!) are generous and it looks and tastes great and this comes highly recommended as not just a value buy from my home but as an amazing, warming and easy to handle and eat pud!
Nutritional Information Per One-Sixth Of The Strudel:
Only available in Tesco stores costing about £1.25 a strudel.
Summary: Lovely pud, great with cream!
