Rhubarb & Custard Creams (Tesco) By @Cinabar

Rhubarb & Custard Creams (Tesco)

Breaking news here, forget the Bourbon Custard Creams which came out earlier in the year, the big news are these Rhubarb & Custard Creams I found in Tesco. They don’t even have a ‘new’ label on them but they are the first time I’ve seen them (or even heard about them). They are a fab sounding edition of biscuit, I mean what other fruit could you possible pair with custard as well as these.

I opened up the packet of Rhubarb & Custard Creams and the biscuits look very much like regular Custard Creams except for the filling being a pale shade of pink. There is a light rhubarb aroma too which was nice, I couldn’t wait to try one. I have to say I was super impressed with these biscuits. The rhubarb flavour is fairly strong and the acidity of the fruit flavour perfectly balanced out by the creamy custard. A perfect flavour match. The biscuits are good, even dunked in coffee all the flavours and textures still worked well. I don’t re-buy a lot of limited editions but these I will, they were just lovely on their own and dunked, and are an absolutely brilliant edition. Everybody was talking about the chocolate Bourbon Custard Creams but really these Rhubarb & Custard Creams are the biscuits everyone should be trying.

Repeat after me: Rhubarb isn’t a fruit.

Green beans aren't vegetables, cucumbers are fruits and strawberries aren't berries (despite having it in their name). The actual classifications are so frustrating so yeah I do tend to just go for the sweet ones are fruit and the savoury are vegetables - sorry.
