After a long day of shopping with my dearest mummy, we were off to the escalators and ready to head home when I saw a very alluring sight, the Breadtop sign glowing out the front of it's newly opened store. I had been a very good girl and avoided all such temptations after the usual Christmas/New Year feasting blow out, but it had been a long day and with my bat-like hearing the call of the assorted doughy delights was just too strong for us to ignore.
After hitting the goods hard, filling our tray to the brim with all sorts of gluttony inducing items, it was time to settle up at the counter, which is also a fridge stuffed with umpteen different perfect looking and undoubtedly yummy tasting chilled treats. Slices of mousse cakes, fruity tarts and the one lucky little dessert that caught my eye, the mango and coconut pudding. With the glistening chunks of jelly sparkling under the fridge lights and the perfect layers of creamy pudding appealing to the eye, I had to have it.
I brought it home to enjoy and savour for dessert that evening, sacrificing a few spoonfuls so as to share it with my better half. It was absolutely delicious. The layers of the creamy coconut and mango mousse type pudding were super smooth, but more dense than an actual mousse. They had just the right amount of sweetness and a real coconut and mango flavour. The mango puree on top gave it a nice freshness and a stronger fruit flavour. The jubbly jelly on top made it a bit different and added a subtle lychee taste, lifting the whole pudding. I would highly recommend this as a little treat, it's inexpensive, very fresh and tasty plus it's served in a lovely little cup.
