Sainsbury's Creamy Coleslaw

Sainsbury's Creamy Coleslaw
Advantages: A good creamy rich coleslaw
Disadvantages: nothing major
I have to admit that Low fat foods aren't by any means my first choice but some low fat products fare better than others.
Low fat coleslaw is often a poor excuse for the real thing. The only reason that I say this is because when they add the low fat mayonnaise to the coleslaw ingredients the lack of anything `creamy` makes the mixture look insipid and the overall taste is well below par.
As i`m writing this I have words like cholesterol, fats and weight circling around my head. The only way I can justify my actions is by saying that creamy coleslaw is often eaten with a healthy salad.
I know that the product being reviewed is Sainsbury`s creamy coleslaw, but I wonder how many of you have ever tried Lidl`s luxury coleslaw? A huge tub of first class coleslaw costs under 70p in Lidl`s, sometimes the only evidence of it being sold there is the cardboard box that it came in as it is such a popular buy.
Sainsbury`s Creamy coleslaw is another good choice, by no means as cheap as the Lidls version but it offers quality.
The balance has to be right doesn't it? there has to be a good amount of carrot, onion and seasoning added to the shredded cabbage to make it look remotely interesting.
The carrot offers colour to the whole dish so it is important that enough is added to attract any potential buyers.
Double cream has been added to the coleslaw which does make a huge difference, the mayonnaise is helped along nicely with the added cream and the consistency is pretty spot on.
The cabbage has been finely shredded, so no stalks and stumps to sit and look unappetising, the carrot has been very finely grated and the onion is finely chopped, so its gives the coleslaw the `cared about ` look. I always feel that its a cardinal sin to spoon coleslaw onto a plate and watch it start to spread on the spot where the mayo is translucent and watery. Sainsbury`s have obviously given this thought, when it is spooned out the dollop stays in one place and it presents itself well.
But beauty is after all only skin deep and the smell and taste are next to be investigated.
Tantalising would be the operative word, a slight whiff of wine vinegar and mustard can be picked out. The coleslaw gives good vibes, A subtle `oniony` bouquet is in pole position.
Any inferior coleslaw's can be detected very quickly, as soon as the glutenous mayonnaise hits your taste buds you know that the penny pinching just wasn't worth it.
The Sainsbury`s creamy coleslaw is a beauty, finely textured, mild with enough seasoning to compliment any summer meal. The creaminess is evident straight away and adds style and elegance to any mealtime.
Sainsbury`s creamy coleslaw is packed in a tub that is wholly recyclable. The tub is attractive enough to put straight onto the table.
The coleslaw can be incorporated into a Coeliacs diet.
Once you have opened the tub you should use it all within a couple of days.
A 1/3 of the 180g tub contains 107 calories, 2.7g sugar, 1.1 saturated fat, 0.45 salt and im afraid to say 10.2 g of fat.
A 180g tub costs 46p at Sainsbury`s stores.
Summary: A coleslaw that is well worth eating.
