“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Cakes „
ho hum - another thing ruined by changing the ingredients. The chocolate sauce in these used to be amazing, but now - it's become a vile syrup, vaguely resembling chocolate flavouring. They made this change last year but I forget and end up buying them again only to be horribly disappointed. I suppose if you were having a kids party and wanted to fill their little faces with cheap junk, these things would be perfect...
I normally pick these Doughnuts up quite often, because Tesco are evil and put a massive display of them right by the front door! They are also sneakily on offer quite often, and at the moment Tesco are selling 2 for just £1.00, but individually they are 65p, so they really aren't too expensive at all. You can also mix and match them with some of the other doughnuts in the range, which include custard and also the classic jam variety. These doughnuts come in a paper type bag, very simple, and the packaging is brown, with a see-through bit of cellophane so you can see the doughnuts inside. There is also an illustration of a 'doughnut monster' on the front, so I think these might appeal to children (although I'm not sure if that is necessarily a good thing). The colour of the paper bags, reflect the type of doughnut they contain, so the chocolate bag is brown, and the custard one is yellow etc. You get 5 doughnuts per bag, and let me tell you, these don't last very long in our house! Each doughnut is topped with a lovely smattering of sugar, and the dough always tastes lovely and fresh. I often find that things like this can be a little stodgy, but these ones seem fine. The chocolate filling is very thick in consistency, and I would actually liken it to chocolate flavour custard. It is a little gloopy, but I find it really delicious! It doesn't taste overly cheap for the price, and is nice and sweet which is how I like it. These doughnuts are extremely unhealthy - so it might be best to save them as a treat! I think each doughnut has around 205 calories, and 8g of fat, so probably not the best, but what can you expect from a doughnut really! Apparently these doughnuts can also be microwaved, but I haven't actually tried that, but I assume they would be just as tasty served hot as part of a dessert. I would definitely buy these again in the future, but next time I'll try not to eat the whole bag to myself!
It's not very often that I shop at Tescos but last time I did, I came across Tesco's chocolate filled doughnuts. A shop local to me sells chocolate filled doughnuts which are yummy so I picked these up as I wanted a treat. However I was not so impressed with Tesco's version. For 69p you get a pack of 5 or there is quite often an offer on for 2 packs for a £1, so a complete bargain! They are prepared fresh in store on the day, so it is always best to eat them on that day too as they quickly become rather stale. The doughnuts themselves are of a decent size and I cannot complain about the taste of the doughnut itself. I was quite happy up until the point of getting to the chocolate filling. There is more than enough of the chocolate filling, which has the consistancy of a thick sauce but I was very disappointed with the actual taste. I found it a bit too bitter for my taste buds and prefer a consistency of chocolate which is like thick mousse and tastes a bit more milky. I think because I am used to the chocolate doughnuts I can buy in my local store which I love, I found the comparison with these was just not very nice. Don't get me wrong, I would still finish off a packet but I probably wouldn't be so quick to buy them again.
