Bonne Maman Caramelised Apple Spread (Ocado) By @Cinabar

Bonne Maman Caramelised Apple Spread

I always used to just have butter on my toast. Boring, I know, but there we are. I have recently tried a chocolate hazelnut spread from the brand Nutini (just to see how it compares to Nutella) and just as something a bit different to try. Now that I’ve finished the pot, I’m not sure I can go back to just butter on my toast. I scraped every last scrap out of that pot. I found myself browsing jams and spreads on my last supermarket order, and I was a bit surprised by some of the spreads that are available. I managed to create a list of ones I wanted to try, then a shortlist, and now here we are opening this jar of Bonne Maman Caramelised Apple Spread. There are another two pots of different spreads waiting in the cupboard.

As a newbie to spreads on toast, should I be putting butter on first? I haven’t been; I would if it were jam, but chocolate spread doesn’t feel like it needs it. This is fruit-based and had me puzzled, but I left the butter and went straight for the spread. As I put the knife in, I was surprised by how soft the spread was; it was much softer than a chocolate spread or a jam. I spread it over my toast. I hadn’t expected the sauce to taste buttery, but it did. There was a sweet caramel flavour and then a sweet, fruity apple flavour running through it. I think the concept of liquidised toffee apple on toast springs to mind; definitely a win for someone like me with a sweet tooth. It probably doesn’t count as one of my five a day. I have to say I’m very pleased with the first jar of Bonne Maman Caramelised Apple Spread I’ve opened, and I can’t wait to try the other new spreads too.
