First we had disastrous Biscuits and then the delicious Vote for me Chocolates.. Now Thorntons have ventured into Desserts with these NEW Fabulous Fudge Pots!
I picked up the pack of 2, Toffee Fudge Pots in Tesco for £1.50. They are situated in the fresh section with the "dessert yogurts".
Each 65g pot contains a mouth-watering dollop of creamy fudge mousse with a velvety toffee layer topping. Made delicious in Devon with real Devon clotted cream.
Peeling off the lid revealed the delicious scent concealed within - It was a familiar smell that I couldn't quite put my finger on but it was somewhere between a vanilla-y fudge and toffee yogurt. I took a scoop and the 2 layers stayed pretty distinct both on my spoon as well as in the pot. The bottom of fudge mousse was light and fluffy as a good mousse should be with a lovely sweet and fudgy flavour. A silky smooth texture, quite similar to a yogurt came from the toffee layer above which was plenty thick and slightly colder to the mousse beneath. The flavour of the 2 elements combine was delicious and a bit like a Sticky Toffee Pudding - Never a bad thing! I did also feel there was a hint of coffee in there too but looking at the ingredients list, it appears not - Must have imagined that one!
Overall, I am pleasantly surprised by these NEW Toffee Fudge Pots - I was half expecting them to be overly sickly but am pleasantly surprised. Having said that I don't expect you would want to eat more than 1 at a time which thinking about it, is probably the way you're "suppose" to eat things, sadly! The Fabulous Fudge Pots Range also includes Vanilla and Chocolate Fudge variants which I am keen to try after this delight from Thorntons! I am starting to think they read my scathing review of their Biscuits and have decided to try and win my affection back - I am that important, clearly! Its a 4 out of 5 from me!
