Thank you Tesco for bringing one of my favourite desserts to me in a gluten free version. Next to a cheesecake this is just the best pudding ever!. Oh and a sponge pudding, that comes close too. The Salted Caramel Sponge Pudding I mentioned over Christmas was fabulous by the way, that good I ended up going back to buy another. I was just hoping that it may not have been a Christmas thing and they may stock that one all year around.
I did try this Lemon Meringue before the New Year and before going back on to a strict diet. I put half a stone on over Christmas and New Year which I'd love to be surprised about but after the amount I ate I was kind of expecting it. I have though already shifted some of it off again which is fantastic and has left me inspired to get back on it and get my three stone award with Slimming World.
This pie was delicious and yes the pastry is a little crumbly but we do expect that with gluten free pastry. Apart from a little crumbliness it was just as any other lemon meringue. I think it was a bit lighter and not so stodgy. My son didn't even notice the difference and ate it too. He even ate the last slice which I was a bit miffed about at first then remembered it was the season of goodwill and he was only saving me from future fatness.
So this is found in the refrigerator dessert aisle next to all the trifles and egg custards, I was so excited when I found it, I never thought to look anywhere else apart from the Free From aisle so do hunt around as it can be like a treasure hunt, gluten free surprises all around. Now I know how kids feel when they go on an Easter egg hunt. Yes I am like a small child when I find gluten free products, I could jump up and down and do a little dance but not sure the shoppers and staff are ready for that at Tesco.
Priced at £3.35 for a whole 365g's just don't think about syns or points because it may well tip you over the edge. You do need a treat now and again though so set a target and have this as your reward. Well done again Tesco!
