It’s been a hectic few months, especially the last couple of weeks due to medical problems of my own and of my family. As a consequence I feel like I’ve been failing my blog, not having time to read other people’s posts or interact much on social media. I feel like I’m putting some stuff out there but I’m not talking to other people at all. I hope to sit down and write out a plan for my days which I hope I can stick to and take with me into the new year.
The good news is that my operation is back on, Christmas is round the corner and I have my new job to look forward to even if I am extremely nervous about starting it.
Today I’m reviewing Tesco’s free from sour cream.
I love nachos, I have loved nachos all my life and as much as I liked chips, salsa and guac with melted Violife there was always something missing. So when I found out that Tesco had a sour cream alternative I rushed down there and picked some up. A hot pile of nachos is such an easy snack dish for me and helps me up my calorie intake, I was hoping that this product would be the cherry on top.
This sour cream alternative is made using coconut and actually has a fairly short and simple ingredients list that I was pleased with. I found it a little more watery, not quite the same consistency as dairy sour cream but it was thick enough to stay in place and it did it’s job. Taste wise I’d say that you can definitely taste that it’s made from coconut, and there’s nothing wrong with that, it just didn’t have an authentic sour cream taste. However, it still gives off the same feeling in the mouth, the sharpness and the creaminess, and after getting used to the taste I’d say it’s a good alternative even if it doesn’t taste the same. I really do love this stuff and ate plently on top of nachos, but my favourite dish was having it on buttered corn on the cop with a sprinkling of paprika. Delicious!
Ingredients: Water, Coconut (11%), Lemon Juice From Concentrate (10%), Rapeseed Oil, Modified Maize Starch, Salt, Stabiliser (Xanthan Gum), Preservative (Potassium Sorbate).
I picked up the 280g bottle for £1.20 Tesco and it’s lasted for many, many uses.
Hope you’ve had a brilliant Monday!
