When you get a text like this, especially from Tom the Scientist, who lives with the lovely Laura, you just can’t afford to ignore it! So Darrell, Nigel and I decided to see if Mr Kipling has indeed delivered a 9 nom, pastry encased culinary delight.
The blurb on the box said “ Rhubarb and custard pies …. with tangy rhubarb and apple and a dollop of creamy custard”. We very much like the word “dollop” – it implies that portion size of the custard inside the pie is generous …. and not just a smidgeon …..
The packaging was rather garish but at the same time tantalisingly tempting……….. our eyes were already doing the eating …..
The lattice pastry lid also gave us an enticing glimpse of the custard and rhubarb that lay beneath … our excitement and anticipation were tangible.
Nigel just couldn’t wait ……
All we can say is …..
Nom, nom, nom, a million times nom! We would have liked to have tried them warm, but we just couldn’t stop nomming to put even one in the oven….. so we now need to nip over to the village Tesco Express to get a another box to try them again……
Note: we did have the presence of mind to realise that rhubarb may have an adverse effect on Nigel’s erm …. tummy …. so we limited his intake …. scrapping much of his rhubarb onto our own plates!
