“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Pastry / Sweets „
I recently reviewed the Sainsbury's Egg Custard Tart Desserts and amongst that range of desserts is the 2 Bramley Apple Turnovers.
Sainsbury's do a range of these kinds of desserts varying from chocolate, fruit and cream and often a combination of these. I have tried quite a few from their Desserts range and so far so good.
This one is appropriately packaged in a light green box with window. Inside is a plastic tray holding the puffs. I think they have updated the packaging slightly from the transparent box in the picture so that it fits in with the rest of their Dessert range rather than being a Bakery item I suspect. Each puff contains 285 calories. This will cost you about £1.39.
My first thought was that I was pleasantly surprised by the size of each turnover. It is triangularly shaped, and roughly half the size of a sandwich. It is also quite nicely filled with a mixture of whipped cream, chunks of Bramley apple and apple sauce. This is contained by a light and flaky pastry shell which is coated in little sugar granules similar to the manner of a cream horn.
I really like these, the apply is zingy and contrasts with the tanginess of the apple chunks which feel solid and not like the apple much you get in some brands of turnover. I also enjoy the contrasts of the soft cream, crunchier apple against the softness of the pastry but crunchiness of the sugar coating. These are simple, but very tasty indeed.
