Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Ambrosia Crumble Puds Confirmed sighting: Ambrosia Crumble Puds
Posted: 23:19 Sun 22-Nov-2009. Price: 69p. Location: Asda, Wembley Park. Sub-flavours: Rhubarb, Apple or Peach Crumbles; Raspberry or Strawberry Jelly Puds. Nutritional unusualness: 13.4-16.8g sugar per individual serving.
Snackspot reports: I think these are already advertised on TV (though disappointingly not with the tagline "Let's get ready... to crumble!") - I wasn't completely convinced by the jelly and custard combinations (which have a larger jelly section and small microwaveable custard compartment), but the crumbles reverse the arrangement so you can heat up the fruit compote and custard, and then sprinkle the slightly salty crumble pieces on the top.

All in all, a decent low-budget alternative to the extraordinary variety offered by Tesco's Pudding Place range (1.50/pack of 2 in Tesco, Finchley, includes an excellent chocolate sponge with pear pieces), and the frankly pricey-seeming Carte D'Or Crafted Patisserie Desserts (3 in Wembley Asda) - in Madagascan Vanilla and Chocolate Cheesecake, Vanilla and Raspberry Cheesecake, or Chocolate and Raspberry Torte, which are at least an improvement on Walls' previous Magnum Chilled Desserts.

...In more portable pudding formats: while the UK has to make do with the likes of Marmite Cereal Bars and Honey Monster Monster Puffs, "charl" travelled as far as Walgreen's, Lincoln City, Oregon, and Costco, Sheffield, to find that: "Whilst they may sound like the technical term for people who frequent this site, Snacksters are actually small snack bags consisting of cereal and small chunks of chocolate or peanut butter candies. They are nice, but dangerously moreish. Costco had the multipack with the Reese's and Hershey's varities very briefly in the summer (they sold out really fast), but are back in stock now. When we were in the states we also managed to pick up the Hershey's Kisses variety too."

Comment: The M&S chilled pudding range is another worthy range to try; they're pairs of puddings for ~£1.50 of about 100-150g each; all microwaveable.

I'm gently addicted to the apple crumbles (although they don't provide custard).

The chocolate puddings are OK but not as chocolatey as expected.

I can't remember the rest of the range.

Comment: What idiot designed this product? Poorly packaged and badly glued together. Custard tastes as good as standard Ambrosia. Expensive. This is NO muller pot. Shame on you Crumble Pud.
