I love egg custard tarts but don't eat them very often as being a bakery product they are obviously not very good for you. They are the perfect accompaniment to a nice cup of fruit tea in my opinion and taste best warm. I must say, I am most fond of my Grandmas egg custard tarts which are delightful; perfectly light pastry and nice firm custard - delicious! However, when Grandma's egg custard tarts are not available, I tend to go for the ones from Sainsburys which I've found to be the closest thing to them. WHERE TO BUY, WHAT YOU GET AND COST. Sainsburys egg custard tarts are obviously only available from Sainsburys and you can buy them in packs of ... Read the complete review

This is one of those teatime treats which, I am afraid to say doesn't get gently nibbled. I would say about three bites and it is gone. I find egg custart tarts a little difficult to eat without getting some degree of crumbs about the place or a litle of the eggy mixture going somewhere, so to overcome this, I find it best to eat them as quickly as possible - this in theory minimises the possibility of you spilling some. Right that is my excuse for scoffing, what's yours? There are four of these to a pack, so that is just about enough for me, however you will probably want to share them with someone else. They look feel and ... Read the complete review

I have always liked Egg Custard Tarts but don't eat them very often for some reason, I think it's because the only bakery by me that sells them isn't very good and that's put me off a bit. I wouldn't usually think to buy them from the supermarket but when I saw a pack of 4 in Sainsburys I decided to buy them because they was only £1.00. The box is different to the one in the photo Dooyoo have got up and you can see more of the cakes, they look more appetising than the ones in the photo as well and not as sickly pale looking. I wasn't very happy with them because even though they are quite big and look and smell delish the egg custard filling isn't ... Read the complete review

You know you are getting old when you start getting a hankering for a nice Egg Custard Tart. When you are a kid, these are the sort of things that you dread your nan serving up to you, especially that weird sprinkling of nutmeg on the top that looks like some strange sort of mould growth. Adulthood means embracing the Egg Custard. Egg Custard is good. The domain of the mature person, who has put aside childish things! Sainsbury's Egg Custard Tarts are excellent value at £1 for 4 tarts. They come in a yellow box with a perspex window, so you can see the product inside. These tarts are HUGE, and one is all you will need to fill you up until dinner time, ... Read the complete review

In Hong Kong, there is a pastry called "Egg Tart", which is absolutely divine. The closest thing we can get at supermarkets here are these Egg custard tarts. Whilst I might be comparing these to the Hong Kong style ones, these are completely different, and personally I find them refreshingly different and absolutely yummy. ~~~PACKAGING~~~ These come in a pack of four. Each tart has its own foil cup, these in turn are placed on a plastic tray and packaged in a box with a plastic window. I think there is way too much packaging involved, and they could easily remove the outer box and just have them in a plastic one, hence removing also the plastic ... Read the complete review
