REVIEW! Tesco Billionaires Profiteroles and Lemon and White Chocolate Cake Slice

Tesco Billionaire's Profiteroles

Here is 2 more desserts from Tesco's new chilled dessert range which I got to try thanks to their PR company sending me some vouchers in return for honest reviews. This time I am sampling some of their delicious cream cakes.

First up we have a box of 3 Billionaires Profiteroles which cost £1.29 with each profiterole containing 85 calories.

These little choux pastries are filled with caramel cream and topped with a Belgian chocolate sauce and have little pieces of gold coloured fudge on the top.

The choux pastry was excellent and I loved the caramel cream! The Belgian Chocolate on the top was thick and tasted lovely and although I couldn't really make out the taste of the fudge it looked fabulous. I love that Tesco have taken a classic dessert and one that some people see as quite old fashioned and given it a modern and extra tasty twist. Tesco also do a a pack of 3 Chocolate Orange Crunch Profiteroles.

Next up we have the Lemon and White Chocolate Cake Slice.  This comes as an individual cake in it's own box and is priced at £1.29. The whole cake contains 255 calories.

The cake is made up of layers of sponge, topped with lemon mousse and finished with a lemony glaze and Belgian White Chocolate curls.

The sponge is just perfect, it is so light, as is the mousse and I absolutely loved the combination of the lemon and white chocolate. The glaze on the top is nice and sweet and this made a lovely refreshing yet indulgent dessert. If lemon isn't your thing then there is also a Chocolate Honeycomb Cake Slice available.

I loved both of these cream cakes and I love that they come in portion sizes for 1 person. This is not something that you see often when it comes to dessert but it's a great idea because you can mix and match. I could also imagine these all set out nicely on a cake stand for a posh afternoon tea! I don't need to pay £50 a head at the Ritz or whatever it is, I will just go down Tesco and stock up on these!

  1. LOL at The Ritz!

    The white choc and lemon slice sounds right up my street. I'm not a fan of Profiteroles though so even the gold fudge doesn't tempt me with those haha. Not a fan of choux pastry at all.
