Last year, Tesco Orchard asked its members to get their thinking caps on and come up with a new flavour of Biscuit Spread to take its place on the shelf, next to the already established, Bourbon and Custard Cream jars. Jammy Dodger was my suggestion which word has it, might be in the pipeline but for now we will have to make do with this NEW Millionaire's Shortbread Spread!
The 400g jar of caramel flavour and chocolate flavour butter biscuit swirl spread cost £1.99. Hazelnuts also make an appearance in the ingredients list which is always a winner in my book!
Nothing extraordinary struck me about the scent upon unscrewing the lid - It smelt like every other chocolate spread which wasn't particularly reassuring considering I was expecting to be in caramel heaven. Texture wise is was thick and silky smooth, making it very easy to spread although I did just eat it as is, by the spoonful! The Millionaire's Shortbread flavour was spot on in being very rich and full of cocoa flavour whilst having a strong yet sweet caramel taste which matched the chocolate perfectly - Not a smidgen of hazelnut but still absolutely divine!
Without a doubt, this is my favourite of the 3, Biscuit Spreads that Tesco have to offer - I am in actual awe! If you are a fan of Millionaire's Shortbread, I can see this going down a treat.. If not, you best stay clear as it is very rich and could easily be branded as sickly. I can't wait to see what other flavours the store comes out with.. Preferably Jammy Dodger and preferably soon please! Its a 4 out of 5 from me.
