Awesome. Lovely generous icing with a thick layer of cream. A real treat...what's not to love!
Awful - rubber pastry - put in bin.
I blame the Great British Bake Off
I was tempted into buying these after watching custard slices being made in the Bake Off final (cream will always beat custard in my eyes) and the pastry and cream were both acceptable. What let them down was the over thick icing on the top. There was so much of it and it was so horrendously sweet my teeth were set on edge biting into it. It's a shame really, they will never match a fresh bakery cream slice, but they could have been a decent 'supermarket cake' if I hadn't felt the need to ring my dentist.
Not easy to eat
The icing and the cream were acceptable, but the pastry was like hot water crust pastry, and cutting with a fork made it collapse into an (albeit small) flat mess.
On 2 previous deliveries I ordered 2 packs each time, both times they were severely squashed although packaging was hardly damaged, I love these so ate them with a spoon. so very reluctant to order again.
Too much icing with pastry like cardboard
I was given these as a substitute recently but ended up having to scrape the icing off as it was too thick and made the whole thing sickly sweet. The cream and jam, what there was of it, were OK. The pastry was layered just as claimed in the description and exactly how it should be in cream or custard slices, but it certainly wasn't crisp - more like flaky cardboard in fact.
It was sweet, I ate it, but not as described.
The pastry seems to have been made by someone who has no idea what pastry is, let alone puff pastry, definitely not puff pastry, or short pastry, no idea what it is, but it's dense and soggy. For me the icing was nice, not too thick, but there enough to give it some flavour, because the cream tasted of literally nothing.
As some people have said the pastry is soggy and nothing lime Puff pastry and yes the icing is thick BUT I like the thick icing which is why I buy them or brought them because at the time of leaving this review they have been unavailable for a number of weeks - I do hope they will be available again soon
Where’s the puff pastry?
2 cream slices which on the box claims is puff pastry. Really? You could have fooled me. Even the picture on the box doesn’t look like puff pastry. What pastry there was had no layers which puff pastry is supposed to have. Instead it was hard and solid. More like a shortcrust pastry. That made these slices not nice. I won’t buy again.
Does not live up to description
The puff pastry had no puff and looked like and was the consistency of uncooked pastry., ie flat and soggy. I don't know if this was a one off or whether they are always like this but I cannot recommend them on my experience. IMO an unusual failure for Tesco.
