Asda Egg Custard Tarts
Advantages: A very tasty treat
I spotted these tarts yesterday when I was in my local Asda, and I fancied something different so i bought the 2 pack as I've never tried these ones and there's just the 2 of us. They cost 59p for this pack, they are also available in a four pack (as shown in the picture above) or in one larger tart, I think this would be messy though, you need the pastry all around to keep the filling in.
The pack is a yellow card board box with a clear plastic window on the top, so you can see the product. There is a picture of the product on the side of the box, which does took very yummy and tempting, beside the picture is the description " Rich shortcrust pastry filled with creamy egg custard and sprinkled with nutmeg". Inside the box is a thin plastic holder with the 2 tarts in individual silver foil dishes.
The tart looks very tasty, the pastry is golden brown and the egg custard is shiny in a rich, creamy yellowy colour with the nutmeg sprinkled over it. I removed the tart from the foil dish and put it on a plate to minimize on the crumbly mess. I cut the tart in 2 and it just fell away it was so soft. As I bit into it, the custard filling is cold and softer than jelly. The Nutmeg looks a little amount but adds plenty of flavour to the filling. The pastry is crumbly and not too sweet.
Each tart contains
Contains gluten, milk, wheat and egg. May contain traces of nuts and/or seeds. Suitable for vegetarians.
These tarts are delicious. Although the filling is firm enough yet it is very soft but not too soft. The nutmeg is a dominant flavour here. The filling is quite sweet, but not sickly. The pastry is quite a rich, and so you could not eat more than 1 at a time. It is very filling, but a nice once in a while treat. The Nutmeg on top can be rather off putting, when I gave a piece to my daughter, she took one look and turned her nose up, she thought there was pepper on her cake and was reluctant to try it. I cut the top off and she enjoyed it too. I prefer to take it out the fridge a while before eating it as the filling can be rather cold.
Summary: It tastes better than it looks or sounds
