Tesco recently introduced some fabulous new chocolate spreads to their shelves and we were delighted to receive a couple to try out. We excitedly took possession of the Tesco Finest Salted Caramel Chocolate Spread and also their Cookie Spread but look out for the rest of the range, which also offers Bourbon Biscuit Spread, Custard Cream Spread and Cookies & Cream Spread - how utterly delicious do they sound ?! The Tesco Finest selection also includes 30% Dark Chocolate Spread, Smooth Chocolate Spread and Crunchy Hazelnut Chocolate Spread.
As you'd expect from the Tesco Finest range, it uses top quality ingredients and the lid proudly boasts that it is made with cocoa from the Dominican Republic.
The Madhouse kids were very impressed with the different colours swirling around in the pot and asked how they managed that without it all mixing together - a good question that I couldn't actually answer ! - and that was even before we'd tasted it. The sweet creaminess of the chocolate combined with the golden caramel flecked with crystals of sea salt are a match made in heaven. Tesco suggest warming this and pouring it over vanilla ice cream (it would also be great over pancakes or sliced bananas) but we just ate ours on toast (ok, I'll admit it, and on a spoon straight from the pot too !).
We got even more excited when we discovered the Cookie Spread though - it really does taste of biscuits so eating this on toast seemed very novel and decadent. Half of the pot disappeared in one sitting and, while I had grand designs of using this as icing on cupcakes or inside a sponge cake, I don't think it will hang around long enough !
If your kids never fancy eating much for breakfast, grab a couple of pots of this - it works wonders for waking up their appetites !
I've had to promise that we'll work our way through the entire range, starting with Custard Cream and Cookies & Cream next !
