REVIEW! Bounty Sauce

Bounty Sauce

This tub of Bounty Sauce was kindly sent to me by one of my lovely readers Becca AKA The Sparkling Recoverer.  I am always banging on about how much I love coconut so Becca thought that this Bounty Sauce would be right up my street...thank you Becca!

The bottle is 330g and a 30g serving will set you back 97 calories. 

I couldn't really smell much when opened the bottle, there was no coconut or chocolate aroma. This milk chocolate and coconut sauce is quite thick, it is almost like a syrup so quite sticky in texture; it's a good thing that it comes in a squeezy bottle.

So obviously I had to go out and buy some ice cream (what a shame!) so I treated myself to some Carte D'Or Signature in Fondant Au Chocolat flavour which I will also be reviewing very soon.  I think that for the purposes of this review, perhaps I should have stuck to vanilla or something a bit more subtle as the coconut in the sauce is not particularly strong.

Bounty Sauce

I could taste it a bit but the ice cream was really chocolatey so I think that it distracted from the coconut flavour.  To give a fair review, I squeezed a big old bit of sauce onto a spoon and I could smell the coconut and the chocolate now...it did smell just like a Bounty!  I downed the spoonful of sauce and I tell you what, this sauce is good!  It's not hardcore coconut but a very sweet and pleasant chocolatey sauce with just a hint of coconut.

Verdict
I enjoyed the Bounty Sauce as I suspected I that would. I would have liked a stronger coconut flavour but it was still really good.  I think actually this sauce would go well on lots of things, not just ice cream, I could see myself having it on toast...yes I am an animal but I only eat wholemeal bread so does that make it a little bit better?  Thanks again Becca, a great find!

  1. Fantastic review Hannah, thanks sooo much for the mention :D!, Truly appreciate that. I totally agree, I felt the coconut could have been more of a stronger flavour, that icecream tho however? Omg looks amazing, excited for that review! Thanks so much for taking the time to do this review, glad you were able to try it and wasn't too much of a letdown! I'd totally put it on toast too mwahaha :))

  2. Oh wow, I never knew there was such a thing as Bounty sauce! Such a shame it didn't taste more strongly of coconut though. Is it available in the US only?
