At home we were often served home-made apple pies, crumbles, fruit sponges or rice pudding, or perhaps shop-bought sponge puddings boiled in the tin (you can still buy Heinz tinned sponge puddings in varieties including jam and sticky toffee, £1.29) or packet desserts such as Angel Delight (still available in five flavours for 49p a sachet, or buy Tesco’s own at 35p).
These days we often finish our meals with just a piece of fruit, a little ice cream, a yogurt or an individual pot dessert. I really enjoy Aero chocolate mousse, which tastes indulgent, but is only 97 calories per pot.
However, now and again we treat ourselves to a richer dessert or more satisfying pudding. When it’s a warming pudding that we fancy, we opt for Tesco (frozen) Apple Crumble, at just £1 it’s really delicious whilst being great value. Or for a cold dessert we choose Tesco Everyday Value Strawberry Trifle, 450g for £1, which tastes just as good as more expensive brands.
