McVities’s Raspberry flavour Tartlets (Tesco) By @SpectreUK

McVities’s Raspberry flavour Tartlets

I'm not one of those people who works out like hell to just eat lettuce. I don't mind lettuce in a salad or a BLT, but I love a good pudding. I have a bad habit of counting my calories all day so I can leave room for a good dessert. It doesn't have to be anything fancy either, it could be just a packet of biscuits.

Now my greedy old self who used to be seventeen and a half stone would just eat the packet of biscuits. After three knee operations and five years of weight loss, I still want to eat that whole packet. So I burn it off through exercise. It's not for everyone I know. I get up really early and just keep going until lunchtime, and that can get pretty late on some days. The mountain, as I call it, isn't much fun, it's painful and time consuming, but just as long as I stick to my regular calorie level for the end of the day, and eat pretty healthily for lunch and my dinner, I get to eat whatever pudding a like.

These McVities's Raspberry flavour Tartlets are on my pudding menu for tonight, with a pot of low calorie vanilla ice cream. Now a 70 calorie pot of vanilla ice cream will go with just about anything. I've even used it instead of using Brandy Cream on a Christmas Pudding, and gosh, that was good.

These McVities's Raspberry flavour Tartlets have a creamy and fruity centre. Oh I really do wish that some manufacturer or other would bring out a low calorie pot of Raspberry Ripple ice cream. Now that would be a day for celebration. Anyway, on opening the packet there was a super strong raspberry ripple aroma from the biscuits inside. Lovely and crunchy these Tartlets had a luscious creamy sweet raspberry flavour. Moreish to the extreme, I barely opened the ice cream before half the packet had disappeared. Gosh these are good.

Information on the wrapper; With 14 biscuits in the 100g packet, each biscuit contains 35 calories, with 1.8g of fat, 1.7g of sugar, and 0.06g of salt. Please see photograph for the ingredients.
