Freaks of Nature is a new company to me, and I was fortunate to meet the creator of the range yesterday. I wondered if these beautifully packaged puddings, were as tasty as they looked.
First up is Zingy Thingy – a lemon posset with raspberry coulis. This product is gluten, dairy, egg and soya free, a remarkable feat, considering this is a desert.
I was pleasantly surprised, this pudding is delicious. The coulis has substance, with a subtle sweetness that isn’t clawing, and actually tastes of raspberry. The lemon posset has a smooth, creamy texture, although I think the flavour isn’t as strong as it could be, and perhaps could have benefited from some more lemon zest.
The ingredient list is very impressive, all derived from natural sources, without any additional additives. Those who suffer from nut allergies will not be able to indulge, but if you’re a vegetarian fed up with everything nut, don’t worry, the cashew nut presence is not obvious.
You may also be pleased to know that the outer packaging is recyclable, and the plastic container with lid, while not recyclable, are quite robust so can be reused. I’m going to use mine to store beads.
I enjoyed this pudding and am looking forward to trying out others in this range. The reviews will be posted shortly.
