Alpro Dessert Moments: Almond Vanilla

After trying the new Alpro Dessert Moments: Hazelnut Chocolate I was excited to try the other varieties in the range; rumour has it there's a Coconut one which I haven't been able to find yet, but luckily I did spot this Almond Vanilla version in Tesco over the weekend. It was part of Tesco's revamped chilled Free From section.

Like the Hazelnut Chocolate variety, these cost £2 for 4 pots and are vegan, vegetarian, dairy free and gluten free. They contain 30% less sugar than similar chilled dairy-based desserts.

The desserts contain 1.7% almond as well as hulled soya beans, natural vanilla flavour and various thickeners in the ingredients.

Opening the lid, they looked a bit like cold custard, with a gloopy thick texture. I can't say that's a bad thing!

These tasted a bit different from the Hazelnut Chocolate variety, the flavour of the soya beans is more noticeable here and has a slightly odd taste. The vanilla is nice, and the almonds bring a fresh nutty flavour to the dessert, but it doesn't hide the soya. They certainly make for a satisfying dessert, but the weird soya flavour does let them down.

Overall, if you're vegan and dairy free these aren't bad desserts, but I would most definitely go for the Hazelnut Chocolate version over these any day. Now, if only I could find the Coconut variety...
