Ambrosia launch their mini pots
All three of my children love Ambrosia products - the original rice pudding, semolina, custard and all the flavoured custards. They make for a really easy treat dessert as the children are always very pleased to see them.
As well as the large tins and cartons I also buy the smaller multi packs or individual portion pots for them to take to school as part of their packed lunch. These individual pots are between 120 - 150g's (depending on the product and if you buy the multi pack or singles) and JJ (my strapping 10 year) manages them no problem but my younger twin girls (aged 6) so often leave a bit and could probably do with a smaller portion.
Well the good news for them is that Ambrosia have launched mini-pots, currently only on sale in Tesco but they will be available in other leading supermarkets soon. These are a 6 pack of 55g pots and I think they are the perfect size for small toddlers, just the same as most fromage frais. The 6 pack will retail at £1.49 and I suspect my girls would probably have 2 in a sitting and this would make it about 50p per portion for them, which I'm happy with.
One of the best things about the Ambrosia products is that they are ambient and therefore make perfect lunchbox or picnic additions, as you do not need to chill them. It is good to have a go-to dairy product which is a rich source of calcium and vitamin D but I am confident does not any nasties, such as preservatives or artificial colourings, flavourings or sweeteners.
The girls really enjoyed theirs, just look -
Disclosure: We were sent some mini-pots to try out for the purpose of this review. I have not been instructed what to write and I remain honest.
