Upon seeing the new flavours of fruit mince pies in the supermarket, I decided to resist temptation and hold off on buying them.
Then I went shopping on Sunday, and I decided to buy
binge on some.
This is where the stymie comes in… There weren’t any!
However, there was something else that I have been trying to hunt down for months!
I finally found the Liddells gluten free custard. Liddells is primarily a lactose free company, but having seen their custard whilst hanging around on their website, I had to try it! So I had seen it in the Coles catalogue months ago, and have been desperately seeking it ever since, to no avail. I looked in the dairy fridge, the UHT milk section, the health food section and the desserts section of about half a dozen different Coles stores. I was told that I would need to make several requests at my preferred Coles before they would consider getting it in.
Finally, during the very hot Sunday we just had, I was pleased as punch to finally be able to buy some!
It was really quite worth the wait and the hunt! After chilling it for a while, I had a taste. It is sweet, smooth, and tastes just like custard. As a shelf stable item, I would happily buy a few cartons.
You can find it at Coles Carousel, in the desserts/jelly/icecream toppings area. It is a prepared custard, not a powder, and is in a one litre UHT container.
I’m thinking of having the last of it with some lemon sago pudding I am off to make.
