Tesco Custard Doughnuts
Advantages: Yummy- texture and taste sublime
Disadvantages: Short Shelf Life
Of all the doughnut varieties found in supermarkets, the Custard variety is my favourite!
Tesco doughnuts are packaged in a paper bag with a plastic window for you to see the product... the design of the bag has changed quite dramatically and is now more interesting in design, with the basic design still there.
I don't really like the packaging, it doesn't close off ventilation to the doughnuts as the window has slight perforations in it which means the doughnuts will go off quicker, and to prevent this, you have to transfer them to a vacuum seal bag or some tight lidded tupperware.
~~~APPEARANCE TASTE AND TEXTURE~~~
Nonetheless, the doughnuts look really good, they are round and plump in appearance, with a rough, heavily sugared exterior. Do put them in a cool dry place. If the sugar melts it becomes all soggy and not as nice as it could be!
Some people like them warm (urggh!), but I like mine cold, and upon biting into the doughnut the custard will ooze out. Some branded doughnuts don't have enough custard filling but this one certainly does. It is JUST enough in my opinion, but I am a custard person, so the more the better!
The texture of the doughnut with the sugar with the smooth sweet custard is really scrumptious. It isn't sickly sweet, but is on the indulgent side.
When a packet is in my home, I eat about one a day, although they don't keep for very long in that bag, I have to resort to sharing it with the family to get them all gobbled down before them being rock hard and inedible...
They were really quite cheap at under £1, so it is definitely worth getting some!! They are available at most Tesco stores, although I have had trouble finding them recently! WHERE HAVE THEY ALL GONE?
These doughnuts are gorgeous both in appearance, taste and texture, and for the value they are being sold at, a real bargain. Despite its short shelf life and the packaging, they are a real gem at Tesco's and every reason why you should go there and pick up a bag!
Summary: I LOVE IT!
