Generally I don’t like shop made trifles, as in the main there is an articial taste to them, particularly chocolate trifles. The cream always has a tang to it that I really don’t like.
Generally I don’t have the time and patience to make my own (and also I am the only person in the house who likes trifle, so making a big one is not on the cards either).
Now and again I buy individual trifles, notably Tesco Finest and Morrisons The Best individual sherry trifles which are not that bad for shop bought trifles.
Recently I have bough a three pack of Gü Chocolate Trifles.
Their website says about their trifles and why you should buy them…
1. The intensity of the 53% cocoa chocolate ganache.
2. The softness of the chocolate sponge.
3. The decadence of the lightly whipped cream.
4. The silky-smoothness of the chocolatey mousse.
I did enjoy them and you can tell that as I bought them again. They are by no way perfect, but when you want a quick chocolatey snack and want to avoid the artificial twang that you find with many chocolate desserts from the fridge, then chocolate trifles from Gü are just the job.
