What are Gu Desserts? It´s a line of premium individual sized desserts , mostly puddings and cheesecakes, made in the UK by Noble Desserts Inc. They are packed in reusable, pretty ramekins and jars.
These were not available in Spain where I was based for the last two years. But I now live in the Netherlands and I am happy to discover that Gu desserts are usually stocked at the big supermarkets (Albert Heijn, Hoogvliet). This morning, as I did my grocery-shopping for the coming week, I saw that a particular variant of Gu was on sale at 30% off.
And here´s what happened next:
Someone bought a box of 2 Chocolate & Vanilla Cheesecakes in reusable ramekins :-)
A jar of beauty
Look at the layers and that crackly chocolate top!
In the end, I had my moment of Gu indulgence!
This chocolate and vanilla cheesecake variant is still delicious, with a crumbly chocolate cake base, a vanilla cheesecake layer, and a chocolate mousse top but it is a bit too sweet for me. Of all the GUs I´ve tried, my favorite is still the Speculoos Cheesecake which I have written about here.
I have tried a few supermarket desserts and Gu comes on top by a mile. It is not cheap, at about 3.5€ for a box of 2, but it is still cheaper (and more delicious) than buying a cake slice from the bakeries here.
