      A good caramel shortcake that feeds 6 for a treat

      This was my second traybake from Tesco, the first being a very disappointing rocky road. On close inspection of the packaging I realised that this caramel shortcake also has a chocolate 'flavoured' topping - uh oh I thought!

      I was however slightly surprised that this traybake was rather good! Serving 6 with nice size pieces this product offers a rather high level of saturated fats, 8.1g which is 41% of the GDA. As an occasional treat however this shouldn't cause to much of a concern. The shortcake base is good, crumbly and crunchy, with a generous layer of smooth sweet caramel making up 31% of the product. The chocolate flavoured topping (20%) of this traybake is much nicer than that in the rocky road, and does actually taste chocolaty rather than synthetic like.

      I have been rather spoilt by Caramel Shortcake in the past, the best I have ever had was in the café at the Gloucester and Warwickshire railway, they also do a very good chocolate cake, and these are all home made. Whilst this Tesco budget version isn't as good as that at the GWR it is perfectly acceptable, and I wouldn't hesitate to get it again.

      This traybake is suitable for vegetarians, but does contain milk, wheat, gluten, soya and sulphites, so those with any allergies or intolerances should be careful.
