The last of the Filthy Food Company’s kind offerings, and this time they contain a blend of caramel and fresh cream – or as they would have it “shamelessly rich caramel whipped into double cream”.
When I posted my original review of the Kinky Crème Brûlée Bites, we received a comment from someone saying that they’d tried these at work “and they were AWFUL!”. Now I wouldn’t go that far, but I have to say that to my palate these tasted rather like they’d been filled with golden syrup.
The overall impression of the filing is of a syrupy, sickly sweet tasting creamy goo – far too sweet for my liking and way to rich. When I ate one, I didn’t feel as though I could have cheerfully eaten a second one. My co-tasters were in agreement as well. Everyone wanted a second (or third) Choc Bite or Strawberry and Cream Bite, but there were no takers for these.
So there we have it – a split decision. I would happily recommend half of the range but I would also steer prospective buyers away from the other half of the range. Still, it’s early days for Filthy, and if they can produce more of the yummy stuff then I can see them carving themselves a niche in the after-dinner, special treat market.
(Footnote: I was in my local Sainsbury’s the other day and I noticed that they are offering the entire Filthy Foods range at 50% off. A good time to try them!)
