Tesco Value Swiss Roll
Advantages: tasty, very cheap
Disadvantages: a tad dry
I honestly am suprised at the bad reviews on here! I always try and pick up some everyday value brands. If my shopping hits under budget (i shop online usually) I'll add in a few treats and at only 25p the value swiss roll often is selected. Me, my boyfriend and my sweet tooth toodler all enjoy it.
The packaging is actually different to that in the picture now that tesco have redesigned their value brand going for a less cheap effect I believe. They have their beige colour on it with Tesco Everyday Value printed on it. It says what it is and states there are no artificial flavours, colours or hydrogenated fats. They then have their usual clipart below. The other half of the package is clear so you can see the chocolaty outside of the roll. On the far side it states the nutritional values of one portion. It claims to serve 4. Id say more 2 or 3 but then I've always been a large portion person (lucky I have my fathers metabolism!)
The back of the packaging tells you the usual stuff- nutritional values, allergy advice, recyling suitability & ingredients.
THE PRODUCT ITSELF
I find this cake very tasty when I need my sugar fix. The only downside I'd say is its a little dry so if possible I serve it with a small scoop of icecream. If you're having it alone id definitly reccomend a drink to help wash it down with!
There has been complaint that this product is small but for 25p you cant expect a huge slab of cake! The packaging makes the size obvious in my opinon.
The vanilla filling is used thinly but never the less is nice.
Overall it definitly sees to my chocolaty and sugar cravings leaving a nice sweet taste in my mouth.
4 stars for me, only one knocked off for the dryness!
Summary: A nice cake at bargain value but best with a small scoop of vanilla icecream!
