Raspberry Tiramisu (Sainsburys) [By @Cinabar]

I went to pick up a pack of Tiramisu for our fridge, as they seem to have become a stock item for us, and I spotted a new Raspberry Tiramisu. I’m pretty sure tis new, I’ve seen them before and I spend time in the desserts section of the supermarket. For blogging purposes obviously… These Tiramisu don’t actually have a “new” label on them though, and as I overthought the concept of adding fruit to Tiramisu my left hand added them to the trolley. So here we are…
I opened up the packet and found that they looked pretty much like regular Tiramisu. Indeed the Mascarpone layer on top looks identical to the regular Tiramisu I normally purchase, dusted with cocoa powder. The top of the desserts tastes the same too, creamy and sweet with a layer of Masala soaked sponge underneath. The difference is that under this layer is a soft layer of raspberry fruit. It isn’t as sweet as a jam, but has that sort of texture. It is a sharper flavour, but not to strong and it did work well with the other flavours. I wasn’t sure that it would as Tiramisu already contains a complex array of tastes, but I have to admit the raspberry did add to it.
I do like a regular Tiramisu but this was nice for a change, something a bit different and one I will buy again, assuming they are there after the Seasonal goodies disappear.

Although the reduction in the chocolate topping is disappointing, the addition of the raspberry makes the new tiramisu fabulous! I shall make sure my fridge is never without it.
