Nasty bitter aftertaste
Love rhubarb, love custard, have fond memories of old-fashioned rhubarb-and custard sweets. And lockdown is so boring we're always looking for something a bit different. But these were horrible. Nasty artificial rhubarb flavour which leaves an unpleasant, bitter aftertaste that lingered for ages. Has no one at Tescos actually tried them?
These are REALLY disappointing. Sounded delicious (I love a rhubarb and custard sweet, or even a rhubarb gin) but they almost taste like cheap bubblegum flavouring, not remotely rhubarby. Nowhere near as nice as a bog standard custard cream.
Loved the idea but neither of us good discern any
Loved the idea but neither of us good discern any real change of flavour from normal Custard Cremes. We could taste a very slight difference, but not enough to buy them.
Thought Custard Creams couldn’t get better .....
..... well you haven’t tried Tesco Rhubarb & Custard Creams. They are so good, they have replaced original Custard Creams in my biscuit tin.
Tasteless and awful
These were awful. Absolutely no rhubarb or cream taste, I only got through half of one and threw the rest in the bin - more flavour in a Rich Tea! Avoid at all costs
The biscuit itself was ok. but definitely no Rhuba
The biscuit itself was ok. but definitely no Rhubarb or custard flavour , Could have got double the amount of biscuits and got more taste out of a pack of ordinary custard creams. Wont bother getting again.
I'll stick to custard creams
I love Custard Creams & I love Rhubarb so was looking forward to these. But like other reviewers I was disappointed. They don't taste of custard creams nor of rhubarb, just incredibly sweet with an odd aftertaste. I felt obliged to finish the packet, they weren't bad enough to throw away. But I wont bother again, just stick to the much loved Custard Creams.
Horrible, should have read the ingredients, contains no rhubarb, instead gets its flavour from radish and blackcurrant which I don't like.
I got sent these as a substitute for custard cream
I got sent these as a substitute for custard creams, I was so disappointed when I saw them as I would never have picked these myself. The first one I wasn’t sure about so had another, but I actually really enjoyed them as something a bit different to the original custard creams and I would certainly purchase them again.
A pleasant change
I love custard creams and really welcome the addition of different flavours. These are really nice, they do have a rhubarb flavour. I have 2 suggestions, the first one is to be slightly more generous with the filling and the second one, purely for selfish reasons, is please make these in cheesecake flavour.
