“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Breads/Cakes „
Sainsbury's Angel Cakes are new to Sainsbury's. These were bought on the last shopping trip (I didn't choose them). Having looked at the receipt I can see that they were £1 for six slices, which I think is good value for money.
The cakes come in an attractive pink box with a part of the carboard 'cut out' so that you can see the cakes. I can see that the cakes are new by the 'NEW' label on them. The box tells me: "The flavourings used in this product are made from natural sources).
The cakes are quite small in size (I'm guessing around 4cm x 12cm..just a guess). They are very attractive to look at. The cake consists of two different colours; the bottom layer is pink, whilst the top layer is white (a cake coloured white). The top of the cake has white icing on it with lots of pink little swirls.
There is a slight vanilla and icing smell to these little cakes.
Taking a bite from one of the slices, I am greeted with a couple of tastes (I'm guessing it's the vanilla, crossed with the 'pink' part of the cake). The cake is very soft. The icing on the top is quite firm but very soft when biting into it.
I wasn't sure what to think when I first tasted these cakes, as taste-wise there seemed to be lots going on. They are quite sweet. So at first I wasn't too fussed, but when I swallowed, that's when I got the full flavour, and I would have to say that it was really delicious. So to me they have a great after-taste.
Of course, all nice things have to be bad for the hips, and so these little cakes are no exception. One small slice contains 143 calories ( I am always watching calories, although I have to say that when I saw the amount of calories on the label, I thought that it would be for two small slices (one portion), although it's actually for one!). There is also 7.2g of fat, 2.0g of which is saturated. There is 0.8g protein and no salt per slice. So all in all, they are not very good for you, but they're ok as an occasional treat!
The cakes contain: Milk, egg, wheat, gluten and soya. They are not suitable for nut allergy sufferers due to manafacturing methods.
I did really like these cakes; they are great with a cup of tea! I would definetely recommend them; they would be great for when you are having a party or when you have friends coming round as they do look quite 'fancy', and at just £1, a great price too!
You can recycle the card and plastic packaging, although not the plastic film.
Thanks for reading!
