It is a long time since I have served something up to the family that every single person awarded full marks to, but this product succeeded on every count. We gave Mr Seven the job of deciding how to serve it. He opted for meringue nests and thickened cream which proved to be a popular choice with all of us. Everyone had two (except for Miss Five who could not manage a second), and there was plenty left over for another day - and, as this product keeps for two weeks in the fridge after opening, that was a huge bonus.
We started by evaluating the packaging. A lovely bright, clean image on the pack with bold graphics that simply beg you to open the seal and inspect the contents! There is a generous spout which ensures that the contents are delivered with no mess or splashing, something to be aware of when children are doing the pouring! The fruit itself had quite a few chunky bits so the wide spout was perfect. And, as a bonus, the packet is designed to stand up even when it is partially empty so that means no accidental spills.
Mr Seven read the packet and asked what the word "compote" meant. When he realised it was related to the word "compost", he said that was perfect as the meringue shells looked like little plant pots and the fruit on top looked just like flowers. An interesting point of view but I could see what he meant. The fruit combined several textures with smooth and chunky interspersed with the seeds from the passionfruit; Mr Seven's mother thought some younger children might not like the "lumps" but nobody else agreed; we thought it made the result more interesting.
The taste was mouth-watering - sweet and very fruity. I am glad we had it with meringues as I could have otherwise eaten most of the packet on its own! It had none of the aftertaste or mushy texture you sometimes get with canned fruit, and although the three fruits were mixed together you could taste each one separately. We thought it would be good to take on a camping trip as it would make a quick dessert, and as we usually have a chilly bin with us, it would be easy to transport any leftovers back home. That is, assuming there were any! Mr Seven asked if he could take some to school in a pottle with some yoghurt, and Miss Five said she would be happy to take some on its own. I doubt there will be much in the way of leftovers!
