Mr Kipling Strawberry Cheesecake Whirls (Morrisons) By @Cinabar
Mr Kipling has added a summer twist to their biscuit Whirls, and have brought out Strawberry Cheesecake Whirls. They are packaged in a bright a sunny yellow box that (literally) says Summer all over it.
I opened up the packet and found six Strawberry Cheesecake Whirls to share out. The filling was a surprisingly bright shade of pink in colour and had two tones. I gave one of the Strawberry Cheesecake Whirls a bite and tested it. I think I had forgotten just how soft and crumbly Mr Kipling’s Whirls are, they are difficult eat tidily, but I was still enjoying them.
The flavour of the strawberry was quite dominant, and very nicely fruity. Strawberries are one of the main flavours of summer and this sweetened strawberry jam filling worked perfectly. The biscuit base was lovely too, buttery and creamy in flavour. The other part of the filling was the paler pink cheesecake part, which was okay. This section is the main part of the theme for the cheesecake, but it reminded me of yoghurt, and had a hint of sour. It wasn’t strong enough to significantly distract from all the good flavours, and it was by no means bad, I just feel it didn’t add a lot. I think I’ would have preferred a plain strawberry Whirl, or one that was strawberry and cream. The cheesecake just didn't quite work for me, and added a slightly sour distraction to the other rich flavours. Of course I suspect that was what they were aiming for, but personally I’d have preferred a full on sweeter taste.
