NEW Tesco Free From Desserts

Last night, Baby had her first taste of alcohol! 

And I had my first, since falling pregnant (apart, perhaps, from one cooking sauce a few months ago).

I didn't mean for it to happen, really I didn't, but I didn't realise Tesco's dairy free and gluten free desserts would be boozy! OK its not expensive alcohol, but... it's definitely there!

All Baby had was a taste, really, and she didn't like it (phew). BUT at last Tesco Free From have hit on something that is both delicious and grown up! And here it is:

Oo! Yum!

So it's called an Italian Coffee Dessert, but I think we may just as well cut to the chase and call it a Tirimasu.

What to look out for!

Can I just say? I really loved it!

I have to say when I first saw them in the chiller, I wasn't expecting much, but then I realised that they were soya free too. Woo hoo! At £1.60 for two, they seemed quite bargainous to me (they're a decent size too), so I scooped up not just the Italian Coffee Dessert, but also the Chocolate Mouse and Italian Lemon Desserts stacked alongside them.

If you can't find them in your store? Badger the manager until they do!

I have to say, the lemon pud is amazing too. So, it's just the chocolate one to go. 

Oh! But it's a hard life trying them out :)

Want to know what's in them? Here we go:

Water, Glucose Syrup, Coconut Oil, Sugar, Maltodextrin, Egg Yolk, Chicory Fibre, Cocoa Powder, Alcohol, Potato Starch, Flavouring, Egg, Stabiliser (Sorbitol Spirit), Egg White, Thickeners (Agar, Tara Gum), Emulsifier (Mono- and Di-Glycerides of Fatty Acids), Coffee powder, Raising Agents (Disodium Phosphate, Sodium Carbonate), Preservative (Potassium Sorbate), Salt.

    1. Me too! :) Perhaps I could slip one of these into my bag and take it when I eat out! What do you reckon?
